Yoga is suitable for women, men, athletes, and non-athletes alike.
Through yoga we will look at mind/body awareness in a vinyasa-based (breath and movement) 60 min class, deep stretching, and core strengthening. These Duncanville, Texas yoga classes are beginner friendly and all poses can be modified to any experience level. Classes end with relaxation or meditation.
What if I am a beginner? Or I’ve never taken a class before? What is the best way to get started?
If you have never taken a yoga class before, you came to the right place! It’s a privilege witnessing people transform their bodies and lives over time. We call it a ‘practice,’ not a ‘perfect,’ so you don’t have to worry about doing everything right. Take classes with an open mind and lack of need to be perfect. You will be guided you through a safe and vigorous class that will continue to change you. Come allowing for constant discovery.
What do I wear, and what do I bring?
Wear workout clothes that don’t restrict movement and that aren’t too loose. Men usually wear long shorts and a tank top. Women often wear stretch pants and a sports top. Bring a yoga mat, towel and a refillable bottle of water. Oh, and don’t forget a sense of adventure!
About Jill Shaw
Jill Shaw has been practicing yoga since June 2006. She started the practice looking for a way to relieve job and life stress and relax. Like many people, Jill thought that yoga would be some stretching and easy movements and didn’t know that ‘Power Yoga’ existed. Quite surprised by her first class, she was initially drawn to the physical challenge of a power or vinyasa based class. As her practice continued, Jill became more aware of the mental benefits of the practice and believes it has helped her to be a better mother, friend, employee and person. As she developed awareness of herself and her practice, this awareness has flowed into all areas of her life. Jill believes everyone can do yoga but knows everyone doesn’t have access to it; so, in 2016, Jill went through instructor training with the intent of bringing yoga into her workplace at a Police department. Jill received her certificate through the Dallas Yoga Center in January 2017.
