When M'ai Vox discovered yoga, she found peace, stillness, and a new life purpose. As the owner of Stellar Yoga—a Vinyasa-style studio—she assembled a staff of certified Yoga Alliance instructors who teach classes with diverse, flowing sequences that meld movement, breath, and thought. True to Vinyasa style, instructors cruise through poses at a relatively fast pace. This helps students build internal heat, which enhances flexibility and facilitates solidarity with coal-burning stoves.
M'ai's instructors help students focus on yogic foundations such as proper alignment and breathing. They also teach traditional belly dance moves that tone abs and obliques. During donation-only karma classes, experienced yogis and yoginis in training offer their services to raise money for community events and fund the yoga practices of those in need.
