There is so much change in the air it almost takes our breath away. While there is so much beauty in the changing leaves, the crisp fall air, the scents of warm stews and the prospects of being together again in person, there is also the undeniable shift in the light which can at times feel long during this time of year.
It is at these times when we turn towards thinking of things that rekindle energy and brightness when we feel unmoored and restless. We aim towards spirits and things that are inspiring, steadfast, and who aim true to how we are feeling while navigating us to move and think one degree in a different direction towards shifting with safety, awareness, and ease.
We are so fortunate to have a host of these bright lights make up our instructor base at TYC.
As we prepare for our return to in person classes at our new home at 580 North Highway, we’d like to re-introduce you to our schedule, through the voices of those who teach at TYC. We hope you enjoy reading on and feel inspired to revisit an old friend or try out a new teacher or class!Today, Elaine would like to re-introduce you to…

“One of the things I love most about yoga is that the practice can evolve and change as we evolve and change. As a physical therapist, I have worked with so many different bodies. In teaching yoga, I think of the yoga poses as tools for gaining strength, balance, relaxation and presence. In each yoga class, I encourage students to be curious with various yoga asana (shapes), and offer stopping points and variations all while being part of the group experience. Pranayama (breathing techniques) and moments of quiet or guided meditation are infused into each class as I feel these are as much a part of our practice as is the yoga asana (poses). Poetry or spiritual readings are often used as a way to set or support a particular theme. In this way, the practice meets people where they are physically, mentally and emotionally and is a tool for inquiry and for living a more balanced and happy life!”- Elaine
