Drop-In Students Welcome!

Wednesdays 6:45-8:00 pm

This level I class welcomes new students and those looking to revisit the foundations of yoga. With attention on breath and alignment, we will explore traditional yoga postures (asanas) in an atmosphere that encourages lightheartedness, laughter, and self-exploration. Modifications will be offered to provide a practice that honors each student’s individual ability and needs.

“What I like about The Center is the variety of instruction, the different instructors and the different types of classes that are offered… I feel better now than I did ten years ago; and I look better! I’m learning, it’s the whole “process” thing; it’s putting me [in] the process of just being calmer. I tend towards [being] high strung, that’s my nature… and yoga is helping just to pull back, to respond and not react… Action and re-action, phew! That’s hard for me… But what I [learn] here I can take out of here [into my life]… I definitely get in touch with that unknown “whatever it is” here… And whatever it is, it’s working and it seems to be working for a lot of people. I feel at home here… The teachers and the community of students just go [together]. I can’t overstate that aspect of it.”

Matt Batton is our current featured “Student of The Center”. Curious about what else he has to say? Read the rest here or even better, stop by the studio to say hi, have a great class,  and meet him and other fantastic students!

Have something to say about The Center? Let us know! We’d love to chat.

I really like The Center for giving me challenging and enriching yoga but also being at the human level. – Becca

Welcome to The Center of downtown Harrisonburg.  A place to feel safe, encouraged, and challenged since 2006.  A place to be with neighbors.  Make friends. Feel connected.  We have the most well-trained, devoted, and top instructors in the area and offer the most wide range of Yoga styles for yogis of all levels and ages.  We passionately understand that Yoga offers all bodies the chance to feel stronger, more balanced, and more comfortable.  Even more importantly, we know how Yoga can improve your overall sense of peacefulness.  Come visit.  Enjoy your journey to the center.
