Finding your passion in life can be a journey, a lesson Bonda Yoga co-owner Alexandra Marks learned as she took a six-year trek from the world of marketing and communications into the world of yoga. The odyssey ended with her opening Bonda Yoga, a boutique, two-room studio boasting a full schedule of yoga classes for beginner to advanced students. Along the way, Alexandra joined forces with co-owner Laurie Ahlemann to combine their passions and yoga studios. Now, the yogic duo and 17 other instructors, most of whom have taught all over the world, help to reenergize clients with Vinyasa, prenatal, and restorative yoga classes as well as meditation, reiki circle sessions, and massage therapy. Youngsters can even join in the bending and stretching fun as they touch their toes and practice poses that resemble their favorite geometric shapes during noncompetitive kids' yoga classes.
While kiddies stretch, parents can peruse Bonda Yoga’s boutique retail area brimming with essential oils, yoga clothing, and Jade yoga mats. Free mat storage is available, as well as rentals for students who left their towels or third chakra at home.
