Yoga is alive and breathing. Yoga Sudha celebrates their first anniversary next month. We got a chance to chat with proprietor Sudha Venkataraman about yoga in general and her practice in particular.
She is from India and had the honor of getting her certification from the world-renowned Yoga Research Institute in India. There is no question that yoga has been gaining popularity in the United States and around the world for a number of years now. That’s a good thing! Yoga is a healthy integrated activity that almost anyone can enjoy.
What is Yoga Sudah?
Yoga Sudha has a team of teachers who bring many styles and levels of teaching. We asked her for a couple of examples. The first is called Vinyasa. This is a sequence of poses moved through with the breath. It helps tone the body and open the mind. Vinyasa is an energetic class bringing increased vitality and clarity for those who choose to the ride of movement led by the breath. In this class, the base form of the sun salutation sequence expands and takes you through a variety of peak poses. Yoga Sudha also offers chair yoga, another of the myriad ways an individual can get some good from the endeavor.
Another good example:
Yoga is a wonderful tool for managing back pain and it also has a preventative effect. A regular yoga practice can rebalance and realign your spine while easing the mental stress that often creates physical tension. Yoga for Back Care focuses on movements and postures to lengthen the spine and strengthen the muscles that support it. Whether you’re looking for supplemental therapeutic care or wanting to keep your back healthy after long work days in the garden or at your desk, they hope to see you on Tuesdays at 4:00 pm! To make it affordable to all in the community, Yoga Sudha is offering unlimited classes for past, current or prospective members for just $35 per month.
Yoga Sudha offers over 20 classes each week for all demographics; they even have selected free classes for Silver Sneakers card holders. For their first anniversary celebration they are having an open house for the public with food and free yoga classes on Saturday, July 14th. Give Sudha a call at 423-646-1958 or visit her website, www.yogasudhacenter.com and get your personalized regimen going. Your back and body will thank you!
