Sunshine Yoga's knowledgeable yogis, Kelli and Nancy, enlighten apprentices on the postures and breathing of the Vinyasa and Anusara traditions. Ease body, spirit, and mind during Kelli's Vinyasa sessions, which are designed to slowly raise body temperature through a series of slow-flowing poses that tone muscle and optimize neural search engines. Nancy, who has thousands of hours of experience with Anusara yoga, weaves the meditative philosophy of "flowing with nature" with static poses that fortify musculature to stave off injury and improve posture. Novices embarking on an Anusara journey, which requires knowledge of a unique vocabulary, are advised to start with beginner-level classes to limit the use of balance-crumbling flashcards.
Sunshine Yoga's gurus acquaint spiritual explorers with the benefits of yoga behind closed doors in a studio encased in calming, cream-colored walls. Classes, 60–75 minutes long, take place six days a week, and, depending on the day, are offered one or two times both mornings and evenings. Sunshine Yoga provides mats and props, requiring that students bring only the willingness to emulate the flexibility of a choose-your-own-adventure novel.
