Today was my first yoga class at UpDog Yoga in Athens - what a great experience! I started yoga about a year ago at our gym in Memphis, but haven't been to a class since we moved here in April. My daughter sent me information about UpDog Yoga and I decided to give it a try. It was a small group today, so I was initially nervous (and out of yoga shape), but everyone was so welcoming and encouraging, which put me right at ease. Steffan is a very knowledgeable instructor - with a quiet, purposeful style. While some of the poses were new to me, between Steffan and the other “yogis”, I was able to follow along. I used to plan my weekly schedule around yoga days, and I look forward to doing that again here! Today was a great reminder of how much I need yoga, how much I've missed it, and how good it is for you. Thank you, Steffan - I'll definitely be back!
