Yoga Vita hosts 90-minute Iyengar yoga classes where students of all ages and skill levels stretch and pose safely by focusing on proper alignment. Studio director Debra Lauren steadily amassed a deep understanding of Iyengar yoga during her repeated trips to India, which allowed her to build a studio based on gentle and authentic Iyengar practice and to earn enough frequent flier miles to book passage to Jupiter. During classes, instructors help students correctly perform each sequence of poses by incorporating supportive props and bionic limbs when necessary. Repeated practice can bolster muscular strength and stamina while controlled breathing exercises and guided meditation focus minds, enabling students to perfectly recall the license-plate number of their childhood wagon.

We teach Iyengar Yoga at Yoga Vita, which is a classic method of Yoga that is:
EASY to LEARN ~ instructions are clear and concise.

YOGA for INDIVIDUAL NEEDS ~ We are able to help students that are in physical therapy, living with asthma, migraines, neck, back, hip or knee pain. This class offers the student a wonderful opportunity to connect with their own vitality resulting in emotional wellbeing. Everyone can benefit from the focus that comes when the mind follows the body.
The TEACHERS are CERTIFIED ~ Years of rigorous training. They continue to study here, in India and on sabbaticals. The teachers LOVE what they do and want to bring the wonderful experience of Yoga to you. B.K.S. Iyengar is the innovator of the Yoga Props, and as Teachers of Iyengar Yoga we are proficient in their use.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
TO SHARE WHAT WAS GIVEN TO ME. In the very first class I experienced what the word Yoga means ~ to connect, to unite. It was a wonderful feeling of contentment, vitality and focus. Since there were no Yoga studios in the area, this was 18 years ago, I opened Yoga Vita. I was very fortunate to study with some brilliant teachers who really embodied what they taught. I wanted to be one of them.
What do you love most about your job?
The YOGA ~ HAVING the VEHICLE that gives students confidence and independence. People come in with all sorts of stresses and strains from everyday life and quickly discover what connecting the mind and body can do.
