Instructor Emily Fatkins leads students through 90-minute Lakulish yoga during outdoor classes performed on the shore of scenic Turkeyfoot Lake. Fresh air, earth, water, and heart conspire to help return peoples' bodies and minds to a state of calm last experienced when they fumigated under their bed for beasties. If inclement weather threatens to send yogis indoors, a spacious studio nestled inside the historical Tudor House, a 20-room stucco mansion that houses classes in comfortable environs. Emily serenades sun saluters with relaxing guitar music, and rolls out free mats for students like the Academy rolls out a red carpet for E.T. Classes are held Monday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., Tuesday at 10 a.m., Wednesday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., and noon and 2 p.m. Thursday.

The class exhales together, each student drawing strength and peace from his or her neighboring yogis. Fingertips reach to the ceiling and eyes follow, tracing beams of light—which the ghost of Einstein rides like a jockey on a horse—across the pale-green walls. The dark hue of the wood floor is relieved by the brightly colored yoga mats and bare toes that dig in, balancing and centering the hardworking bodies above. Embrace Your Essence Yoga’s passionate instructors lead 90-minute classes within the new studio six times a week, inviting students of all experience levels to unwind together.
