About Divine Yoga Studio
"It is through your body, that you realize you are a spark of divinity"
Divine Yoga studio offers small, safe, and effective yoga classes to the local communities. Through the teaching of Iyengar Yoga, students can be assured that classes are structured to meet the needs of each student - at every level - with attention to safety, alignment and precision.
Classes are taught by certified Iyengar Yoga instructors or Instructors that only practice with certified Iyengar Instructors and teach in the Iyengar Method.
Certified Iyengar Yoga teachers are held to an unusually rigorous standard, only earning their certification after years of training, testing and assessment. Teachers study anatomy, physiology, Yoga theory, in addition to how to teach each Yoga Asana (pose) correctly and safely. Certified teachers understand that each person and his or her body is different - which may require modifications, props and/or manual adjustments to help students reach further and deeper into the pose.
The mission at Divine Yoga Studio is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where you can learn more about Yoga and its practice. In addition, we hope to guide each student to realize the benefits a sustained Yoga practice can bring to his or her life. Through a greater respect for your body, mind and spirit your Yoga practice will help you to see the divine that exists in each one of us.
New classes starting April 14, 2014.
- What is Iyengar Yoga?
What is Iyengar Yoga?
Iyengar Yoga, one of the world’s most widely practiced forms of Yoga, emphasizes correct alignment of all parts of the body within each Yoga pose. This precision builds strength and stamina – balance and flexibility - and a new sense of well being. Achieving meditation in action, students learn to exist fully and vibrantly in the present moment.
- About B.K.S. Iyengar
About B.K.S. Iyengar
Called the Michelangelo of Yoga and the king of Yogis, named one of Time Magazines 100 most influential people, B.K.S. Iyengar is universally acknowledged as the world’s greatest Yoga teacher.
Iyengar brought yoga to the west with his pioneering teaching in the 70s, the beginning of today’s explosive growth in yoga. His seminal manual Light on Yoga, called “the bible of yoga” and continuously in print since 1966, has been the source book for generations of yoga students. Mr. Iyengar’s most recent work is the bestselling Light on Life, which led to a world tour of standing-room-only appearances.
His invention of yoga props -- now ubiquitous in yoga studios of all styles -- revolutionized the art. Blankets, belts and other devices allow students of all skill levels to work safely in the classical yoga asanas (postures). Mr. Iyengar also revolutionized the therapeutic applications of yoga, gaining recognition for yoga as treatment for serious medical conditions.

Important Studio News
Happy New Year 2014! My recovery is going well however, progress has been slower than I anticipated. I have returned to my usual activity - but I am hesitant to commit to opening and leasing a new studio until I feel more recovered. That being said, the good news is I have resumed small intimate classes at my home studio (6 students max). The bad news is these classes fill up quickly and are presently at capacity. I do have a wait list so if you are interested, please call me or send me an email at email@example.com and let's chat about getting you on the wait list.
I am also available for private instruction. Private lessons are an excellent way to learn yoga! Private instruction rates are $40 per class (1 hour 15 minutes) or 6 classes for $200. Please call 909-647-3964 for more information on private yoga instruction.
