I came across Alcove Yoga when I was searching for some type of prenatal workout class. I have to say that I thought it was going to be very easy, but it is the perfect amount of physical activity, stretching and meditation for my pregnancy. Pauline is a fantastic and knowledgeable instructor for all levels of athletic ability and pregnancy. It’s also wonderful being with other pregnant women. I highly recommend this series!! I feel so much stronger and flexible in just a few sessions. There is no question this is a great way to get healthy and prepared for the big day!

My interest in yoga has always been more than physical. For me it was the way toward a spiritual life. Working with only the Sivananda Companion to Yoga book while in college, I loved how the postures made me feel –warm, light, supple, strong, and light-hearted. I experienced clarity of mind, relief from depression, and a glimpse of a deeper existence through the practice of yoga postures. When I read the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and discovered that yogasanas (postures) were actually meant to take you to your spiritual core, I knew this was a path I would never leave.
