Although she often was exhausted after coming home from her hectic nursing job in a coronary intensive-care unit, Krysia Maciuszko always found time to practice yoga. She would take solace in the rejuvenating poses, energizing stretches, and refreshing breathing exercises. Driven by her longtime dream to show others just how much yoga can restore a weary body and to finally be free to laugh at the word “angina” without being judged, Krysia eventually turned in her nurse's cap and opened up Krysia Energy Yoga.
Energizing music echoes across the hardwood floors of her 1,000-square-foot studio, where Krysia and her staff of certified instructors lead students through the movements of a variety of styles—from challenging Power Yoga to playful Ashtanga. Other days, they lead upbeat Zumba workouts that utilize Latin-inspired dance movements to blast calories. The yoga instructors not only teach regular students, but also aspiring yoga instructors during a comprehensive 12-week yoga teacher-training program.
