Peter Wolff, Los Angeles based yoga instructor, is guest blogging for us this month as we explore yoga throughout LA.
Perhaps it’s word of mouth recommendation, or maybe it’s the numerous studies that have shown the wellness benefits of yoga, but no matter how it happened, yoga is mainstream. So you’ve made the decision, “I’m getting myself to a yoga class.” Now the next step is to find out where to learn and practice.
I’m an advocate of plugging into the resources that are closest to you. Finding a teacher that you like is important, and so is finding a teacher close to home or work. Staying “in the neighborhood” is good for the planet and reduces your stress from driving, especially if you are an urban dweller.
Thankfully, all the research can be done at yogamates.com, a comprehensive online resource for the yoga community. Click on “Studio” and then the “FIND” link to do a radius search for studios around your zip code. By the way, the site and its founder, Christopher Miglino, recently made the Ultimate Wellness Game Changer list in the Huffington Post.
Peter teaches on-site hatha yoga classes for businesses, as well as customized private instruction, specializing in therapeutic yoga. To schedule a yoga session for your office contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 323.939.0322. www.yogasounds.net
