Yoga has been in my life in some form- home practice or group classes since 2006, while living on 3 different continents, it’s always been there. I went to my first class as a university student and fell in love with the positive health benefits to my mind and body. I also enjoy the challenges it brings.
I’ve been in Brussels, Belgium now for almost 4 years. In that time, I’ve tried 4 different studios: Yoga Room, Yyoga, The Yoga Loft, and Bikram Yoga Louise. In the summer of 2018, I completed a Ashtanga-Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training at Brussels Yoga Loft. It was an amazing journey.
While I used to love Vinyasa Flow. I’m now hooked on pure Ashtanga. I enjoy doing the same series of poses each class. What makes each class special is the way the teacher makes adjustments, connects the class to their breath, and helps the students set intentions. I enjoy hearing music played in the classes.
Back in Michigan, I attended classes at Red Lotus Yoga. This studio is amazing. The teachers integrate so many beneficial elements into the classes: music- both contemporary and styles spanning the world. They teach you the poses, but also speak kind and thought-provoking words. I try to pass by whenever I’m back for a visit.
