Yoga Search

So I am still looking for that happy medium when it comes to another yoga studio. Last week I tried World Yoga Center. I thought that I found my alternative yoga studio at last. That was not the case. Now while I do believe I like the vibe there - very organic - I felt the teacher was too much of a comedian. Now while I do think that yoga should not be so serious - I don't think that a joke has to be made at every other move. I didn't feel very challenged in this class. The class size was large - so large that I was literally face to face with my front neighbor as we did cobra pose - hello neighbor. Not a comfortable feeling for either one of us - but yoga is not about comfort all the time is it? Now as I was disappointed with this class it wasn't horrible, it just wasn't for me. Next stop is Yogatonic in Sunnyside Queens - once again I have high hopes - it's what keeps me going.

I want to give a special shot out to Big Spirit Yoga for reading my blog and directing me to perhaps a more challenging class - I am up to the challenge and haven't written you off yet. I think your studio has a lot to offer and I am interested in seeing where it goes.
