This being January, we have a lot of new folks coming into the studio and signing up for this newsletter, so I thought it would be a good time to (re)introduce myself and tell you a little bit about The Yoga Room.
My name is Zelinda; I'm the founder of The Yoga Room. I've been practicing yoga for 20 years and I started teaching 10 years ago. You can read more about my background here. I opened The Yoga Room in 2010, and over the years, we've added a staff of excellent teachers and a very kind and welcoming reception team.
At The Yoga Room, our philosophy is Yoga for EveryBody. We offer yoga classes and workshops to suit all kinds of bodies and all kinds of goals. Our classes are simply organized into three types based on physical intensity: Gentle, Moderate, and Strong. Our workshops span a variety of topics to help you deepen your practice.
What special about our studio and our teaching is that we focus on adapting the practice to the practitioner, rather than the other way around. Our students range in age from 5 - 90, with every type of body imaginable.
Some of our students use wheelchairs, some have knee or back issues that prevent them from getting down onto the floor, some have wrist, elbow or shoulder issues that prevent them from bearing weight on their hands, some have difficulty balancing, some live with chronic pain.
We believe every student can practice and benefit from yoga, it's just a matter of finding the right practice. And with our diverse staff of teachers, we help our students find the right practice.
We welcome you to our community and look forward to getting to know you better. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions, comments, or feedback.
All my best,
