Mindful Mountain Yoga is excited to be the first (and only) dedicated yoga studio in Amherst County. Our name comes from how we practice, being mindful, and from who we are, the Blue Ridge is in the water and our DNA.
The studio offers opportunities for group yoga classes at all levels of experience for yoga students interested in maintaining overall health, as part of athletic training, and for improving injury, illness and loss of conditioning which comes with aging. Our yoga classes are a safe, supportive community where we can laugh at our own foibles without worry or judgement.
Not only about movement and balance in the body, yoga practices engaged focus and mental stillness. Many students come to classes because life is stressful and there is little opportunity to let go of the continual demands calling for our attention. Our classes are a chance to recharge ourselves and reclaim those moments of appreciating who we are.
In 2006 I taught yoga classes for veterans at the V.A. in Montrose, NY, mostly Viet Nam era servicemen still carrying the stresses which made it difficult to sleep, hold on to steady employment or be otherwise successful. Since then I've had a 'veterans participate for free' policy. (John K)
