What is “Your Yoga Story”
Carly: In my life I have struggled with maintaining a healthy weight and I have never really been “in shape” to the point where exercising felt natural. That all began to change the second that I stepped into The River. My friend brought me to my first class at The River and it caused a serious shift in my thinking. No matter how hard things get, I am able to take care of my needs during class and not push myself to an unhealthy place – and I NEVER feel judged. In the past few months I have found that my body hurts less and I have a renewed sense of self and personal strength.
Bruce: My girlfriend invited me to class with her. The river changed my perception of yoga and I have grown to truly enjoy and appreciate it.
What do you love about the River that makes it hOMe?
Carly: The staff makes me feel loved, appreciated and worthwhile. Each class and teacher is uniquely stimulating, making sure I am never bored and always challenged.
Bruce: The staff and people are so friendly and the classes challenge me on a regular basis – that’s what keeps me coming back!
What is one thing that makes you UNIQUE?
Carly: I am driven by my personal spirituality and dedication to a balanced and enlightened life.
Bruce: I work on software but I am an artist and a musician at heart.
