I tried a bunch of yoga studios when I moved to the area, and Central Mass. Yoga was by far the best. The teachers are all well-trained, unlike some instructors I encountered, and the variety of classes is impressive -- perfect for me when I was learning yoga, and now that I've been practicing for about 7 years. Central Mass. Yoga is yoga as it should be!
Central Mass Yoga stands strongly on a foundation of positive spirit, profound knowledge, integrity, creativity and altruistic sensitivity. There are many different kinds of classes offered, taught by exceedingly well trained, caring teachers. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming. Perhaps, because one takes classes as a non-competitive individual, one can't help but experience a sense of sharing the atmosphere of calming, joyfulness and quietude with the other students. Yoga seems to bring us together in a common bond! Whether one chooses a gentle class or highly active, heated class or something in between one leaves with the feeling and the knowledge that one has truly done something beneficial for mind, body and spirit! Participating in gentle, beginner, restorative and meditative options ( for just five years) has definitely improved my outlook on life! Not only have I gained greater strength, flexibility and energy, but, I have learned about mindfulness, finding inner peace and balancing one's life. CMY has given me tools to use for a lifetime of greater well-being.
As a professional dancer and long-time yoga student, I have taken yoga classes in many different places, including many studios in New York City. I can honestly say that there is no studio that compares to Central Mass Yoga and Wellness. Lucy has created such a very special place with an amazing emphasis on community, well-being and daily practice. From the first moment I stepped into the space, I felt right at home. Every time I go to CMY, I walk out feeling more relaxed, joyful and ready to take on the day. I have been attending classes at CMY for over three years now and I'm so very lucky to have found a studio like this so close to home. CMY is truly a special place filled with wonderful people who share the same passion for yoga as I do.
"One last comment I would like to make is that there are many Yoga studios and teachers. I believe CMY has the most professional and dedicated instructors that provide a friendly environment and individual support for all of their students."
