Josie Schweitzer opened Thank Yoga Studio in spring 2012. The two types of classes at the studio are open to students new to yoga and also those who have been practicing it for years. The studio's foundation classes introduce budding yogis to the necessary poses, alignment, and form practiced in more advanced sessions. The other main course is a one-hour all-levels Vinyasa flow class, during which students blend breath and movement into a fluid practice. Both these workouts are ideal for students who want to build strength, sharpen their mental faculties, and improve their flexibility so they can dominate on the competitive Twister circuit.
Yoga on High serves as the focal point for a growing community of yoga enthusiasts dedicated to diverse, yet related practices. The studio caters to such a wide range of interests by employing more than 30 instructors. Each instructor possesses a unique yoga philosophy that complements the studio's overall goal of creating a welcoming environment for students of all ages and skill levels. Additionally, Yoga on High's comprehensive teacher-training programs swell the studio's community by fostering the next generations of impassioned instructors.
At Yoga on High, the instructors embrace three core styles of practice. Iyengar-based Hatha classes emphasize physical alignment and mind-body awareness. Ashtanga sessions invigorate students with more active poses and a heated studio space that can reach 80 degrees. Vinyasa classes teach attendees to link breath with movement, creating seamlessly transitioning asana sequences. However, the studio doesn't limit itself to these three styles. In addition to aerial yoga and Pilates, the schedules include specialty classes that explore different aspects of yoga?meditation, breathing techniques, prop-assisted recovery poses?in greater depth.
