The Space Yoga Studio Emphasizes Attention to Breath

Classes at The Space Yoga Studio are scheduled at 10 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays with yoga using movement and breath in a non-judgmental, stress-free way at a comfortable temperature. Classes are taught by Charles (Chuck) George. He was taught in the Iyengar style of yoga by Eileen Muir, in Northampton, Massachusetts. George obtained his teaching certificate in 2014.

He shares, “At The Space Yoga Studio, an emphasis is placed on breath and movement. New students are told that asana (yoga poses) are not so important here. In following instructions during class, students are encouraged to be expressive in their poses. If a pose is too difficult or uncomfortable, then the student is instructed to do as much of the pose as they can do or to not do the pose at all. If they can, students are also encouraged to go more deeply into a pose. Adjustments to poses are not done here. Students will often fall into meditation during class, and this is perfectly fine. There is much laughter and goodwill shared in this studio.”
