Miami Yoga Sunny Isles
Though she was thrilled to be pregnant with her second son, Paola Villegas couldn't ignore the chronic backaches that often forced her to keel over in pain. Looking for some kind of relief, Paola began to take yoga classes and was astounded by the improvements to her body. The pain soon disappeared, and Paola felt happier and stronger than she had previously imagined possible. Meredith Feinberg underwent a similar transformation, using the healing power of yoga to recover from a debilitating wrist injury. Determined to spread the key to their newfound happiness with others, the two decided to pursue certification as yoga instructors.
Paola and Meredith went on to achieve those certifications, and more. Today, the pair owns and operates Yoga Svana, a homey, welcoming studio in Sunny Isles Beach where they lead over 30 classes a week in Vinyasa flow, prenatal, Kundalini, and Dharma yoga. In each of these classes, they exemplify yoga's etymological definition - "to yoke or join" - by guiding students through poses and postures designed to align spines, build strength, and rejuvenate minds. Yoga Svana even offers kids yoga classes, helping youngsters achieve the level of flexibility necessary to fold themselves up and hide in their lockers during boring school assemblies.
