Whether it is to find an av­enue to re­lease stress, pains of any kind, well needed per­sonal time or just to re­lax and med­i­tate, sev­eral peo­ple showed up at the Yoga Loft’s open house on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 12 to find some down time and do yoga, some do­ing it for the very first time. Owner of Yoga Loft, Robyn Cun­ning­ham gave guests a run­down of the ser­vices they of­fer at the Loft, as well as led vis­i­tors into some of the yoga rou­tines that take place there on a daily ba­sis. Cun­ning­ham be­lieves that “ev­ery per­son can cre­ate a ra­di­ant life by just div­ing into the rich­ness that yoga has to of­fer.” Her teach­ings are mod­ern, rel­e­vant, and en­cour­age you to re­dis­cover your zest for life.

Dur­ing her in­tro­duc­tion at the open house, Cun­ning­ham re­as­sures at­ten­dees that yoga caters to the whole be­ing; men­tally, spir­i­tu­ally and phys­i­cally and it is a way to not only re­lax but it also gives the body the re­vi­tal­iza­tion it needs.

In its mis­sion, The Yoga Loft says, “yoga is for ev­ery­one, re­gard­less of age or abil­ity; it’s just a mat­ter of work­ing closely to­gether to en­sure your needs are be­ing met. We are here to pro­vide a safe, en­joy­able prac­tice that will ben­e­fit your whole self: phys­i­cally, men­tally, and spir­i­tu­ally. Our goal is that you walk out of each class feel­ing re­freshed, en­er­gized, and happy.” The Yoga Loft also be­lieves: in cre­at­ing the most wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment so that no­body feels in­tim­i­dated join­ing classes; yoga is a trans­for­ma­tive prac­tice that is suit­able for ev­ery­body; in of­fer­ing var­i­ous yoga styles that suit dif­fer­ent needs; in hav­ing in­spir­ing teach­ers that are reg­is­tered with the Yoga Al­liance; that yoga will help you achieve your health goals and in giv­ing back to the world com­mu­nity.

The Yoga Loft also out­lined some of the ben­e­fits of reg­u­larly prac­tic­ing yoga. This in­cludes: it tones and strength­ens mus­cles to build func­tional strength; in­creases range of mo­tion and flex­i­bil­ity—yoga length­ens and strength­ens mus­cles and in­creases pli­a­bil­ity and elas­tic­ity of con­nec­tive tis­sues; re­duces ten­sion, anx­i­ety, and other emo­tional stress by qui­et­ing your mind and fo­cus­ing on ac­cep­tance, con­tent­ment, and self-aware­ness; gives your body nec­es­sary time to heal, re­pair, and re­ju­ve­nate by qui­et­ing the mind and slow­ing down the ner­vous sys­tem and it gives you qual­ity “me” time away from the stres­sors in your life— yoga al­lows you the time needed to phys­i­cally, men­tally, and spir­i­tu­ally fill up your tank, in­stead of run­ning on empty and lots more! Some of the yoga classes of­fered at the Yoga Loft are: kids’ yoga, preg­nancy yoga, work­shops and re­treats and pri­vate ses­sions.
