Not in any order: The variety! From Strengthen & Flow to Gentle to Moving Inward... something for pretty much every yoga need I might have. #2 the welcoming community! #3 schedules - from Saturday *afternoon* to lots of weeknight options to late Friday afternoon ... I can almost always find a class and time that work for me! #4 the quality of the staff & their warmth and attention. Whether or not an instructor is hands on, I think I've always had the feeling of being watched (in a good way!) - and have never felt pushed into something unsafe ...last but NOT least the space is lovely and simple. Lots of light and NO mirrors! Can you tell I'm a very big fan of Encourage??
EVERYTHING! I love the serene and calm environment.
I love the sense of community
Most of all, I love Al's approach to yoga which is indivdualized, informative, empowering, spiritual and strengthening in body and mind.
I've joined yoga practice with Jasmine and Becca who are incredibly gifted in their own ways.
I feel grateful to have this studio in my hometown!!!
I am pleased with the high quality of the teaching staff & the depth of instruction & feedback. I feel like I learn something new every class. The small cues really do make a big difference. I like having classes offered throughout the day & the wide variety of classes.
- the space (shop and studio) are well-designed, for the purpose, well lighted, well ventilated
- the people, that is instructors as well as proprietor
- the classes themselves are of high quality
- everyone is made to feel welcome
