Sometimes our dreams are within reach, but more often, those dreams are on the highest of high shelves, beside the BB gun and the cupcakes "for tomorrow."

Inner Peace Yoga Center is a non-profit stretchery that caters to yogis of all experience levels through a combination of meditation and hatha practice—a slower-paced style that concentrates on poses and casually beating the hare in a race. The Gentle Stretching class prepares stiff muscle owners for a traditional hatha class, whereas advanced lessons impart advanced poses and vinyasa (breath-movement synchronization). Most patrons, however, can mold their muscles in one of two beginner-level classes that focus on breathing and poses, or the intermediate-level classes, which introduce vinyasa sequences. Refer to the class schedule for a complete rundown of upcoming classes.
The experienced instructors at Inner Peace are passionate about their practice, and each brings years of teaching experience and a deep understanding of Eastern studies, psychology, and reassembling a disassembled rotary phone using only the mind. Select the six-week option to achieve a more pliable form, or drop in five times over to appease each piggie on your left foot and improve flexibility, strength, balance, and posture.

- The instructors never make you fit their yoga program. You are always allowed to assume the yoga positions to your capacity without feeling guilty. – cheryl1952
- It has done a lot of good for my 69 year old mother in law. She loves it! – jennimorehead
Inner Peace Yoga Center
Inspired by their training with Swami Rama—the founder of the Himalayan Institute—Carol and Charles Crenshaw motivate students to deepen the connection between their bodies and minds at Inner Peace Yoga Center. At their nonprofit studio, Carol and Charles strive to honor Swami Rama by cultivating a sanctuary for relaxation and self-discovery through meditation and yoga classes. Six levels of yoga classes help beginners and experienced yogis alike to build strength and relieve tension, encouraging them to work at their own pace. During meditation classes, the focus is solely on the mind. Patrons drift into a meditative state to quiet anxiety over the day’s tasks or worries about dinosaurs re-emerging from extinction. A core focus on community drives the center, with community-centered events bringing people together for pasta cookouts, in-depth workshops, and community-service initiatives.
