Q&A with Danielle Dickinson, Owner/operator
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
The teachers at Yoga For All Beings are motivational leaders. They offer inspirational guidance during class that encourages students to know how strong and capable they are. They won't give up on you. And if the physical practice is less appealing one day, YFAB teachers are permissive in allowing students to take rest on their mat when needed/desired. One thing you'll hear often in class, "Child's pose is always an option." Each class has it's level of intensity but no matter which class you show up to, ultimately you decide how challenged you want to be in the moment. They encourage students to listen to their bodies instead of their egos.
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
Most classes at YFAB are complimented with music but it's up to the teacher whether or not they decide to play music in their class. Any music played in class will suit the pace of class in the moment. For example, classes start out slow, focusing on breathing [and] meditation and so opening music would also be slow and calming. [The] middle of class focuses on warming up, standing poses, vinyasa flow, strengthening and stretching, and balancing and is a more yang (intense, active, heating) part of the practice, so music will be a little more energizing. We offer one class on Friday night that untraditionally plays hip hop music and other fun, upbeat tunes. We call this hip hop power vinyasa and it's a blast.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
After class at YFAB, you will hear students say how relaxed and calm they feel, often ready for nap-time following a nice deep savasana. Other students will report feeling more energized and awake than they did when they first arrived for class. Regular students sing the praises of how yoga is making them a better, more confident and happy person.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are not a hot yoga studio but we do like to keep our studio at 78-80 degrees F to help keep your muscles warm and your mind calm.
