Casting beams of solar qi on spiritual soils, yogis of all skill levels develop a healthy awareness of their bodies through controlled breathing practices during Sun Ray Yoga's Iyengar or Ayurveda classes. Certified instructor Becky McCune––who has 12 years experience teaching Iyengar classes—leads intrepid students through a flowing and athletic style of yoga that emphasizes proper form and body alignment. She also teaches a slower style of the class for those with specific body soreness or physical ailments. Ayurveda teacher Liz Campbell uses her experiences as a holistic nurse to help guide limbs into poses that relieve pain in the lower back caused by day-long wheel-barrow races. Both instructors teach a five-day schedule geared toward increasing flexibility, preventing injuries, and relieving tension.
A community-oriented approach and practical results have led to an impressive retention rate at Sun Ray Yoga, with many students having practiced at the studio for six to seven years. Students must wear comfortable clothes and bring their own mats, though props such as blocks, straps, and beveled rulers for measuring chakra angles are provided.
