Evansville Yoga Center
After Michelle Murphy sustained a volleyball injury in 2001, doctors told her she might never be able to squat or bend again without undergoing a complicated operation. Instead of heading to the hospital, she visited a yoga studio, where she learned how to stretch and strengthen her hurt knee with ancient therapeutic poses. Since then, she hasn't needed knee surgery, an achievement she credits to her yoga practice. To help others discover yoga's physical and emotional benefits, she took the reins of Evansville Yoga Center after moving back to Indiana from California.
At this studio, a team of registered and certified yoga instructors guide students toward wellness goals with compassion and patience. Suitable for all levels of skill and experience, classes emphasize yoga's power to promote strength, flexibility, focus, and inner peace. Classes often begin with sitting poses and deep breaths, then progress to standing and inverted poses. A relaxation exercise concludes each session, helping students feel as calm as an ocean after a Swedish massage. A power-yoga class caters to intermediate and advanced students with athletic poses that challenge the body and mind. Students seeking assistance with difficult poses or hard-to-tone body parts may schedule private yoga sessions, which brim with personal attention and encouragement.:m]]
