Inside Expressions of Grace Yoga's studio, wall-spanning windows grant views of the glistening Versluis Lake and its surrounding trees, echoing yogis balancing peacefully in tree pose. The studio's signature method is the Anusara style, which focuses on building strength and flexibility through postures that emphasize proper bodily alignment, broken up by difficulty levels to accommodate practitioners of all abilities.
Seven diligent professionals—enough to also field a baseball team with two catchers playing at once—comprise Expressions' staff of yoga instructors, all bringing to the table their own various certifications and areas of expertise. Collectively, the staffers put to practice a belief in a supportive teaching philosophy, and individually they are also available for private sessions to help students obtain a deeper understanding of their practice.

All of Grand Rapids Adventure Boot Camp's outdoor locations have cover in case of rain, but in cases of extremely inclement weather (typhoons, scratch-inducing dog and cat downpours, plague frogs, etc.), the instructor will arrange make-up classes.
