We believe in Happiness as a personal pursuit. We know that happiness is directly related to feeling good in the body and experiencing clarity and peace in the mind. We also know that Yoga directly influences how people feel- on a physical AND psychological level.
We want you to feel fit, energized, flexible, strong, capable, confident, and most of all- Happy. We want you to reach your fitness goals – muscle tone, weight loss, fat reduction, increased flexibility, better posture. We want you to come away from your Yoga Class feeling lighter, more positive and less stressed out.
PLUM has designed a Yoga Schedule around the myriad “needs” of your life with the end-goal of experiencing more joy in your relationships, job, and daily activities. We know that on some days you need a vigorous and physically challenging class and you need to relax, unwind, and stretch on others. On some days, you just might want to go upside down and learn how to stand on your hands. There is a rhythm and a flow to PLUM's weekly schedule. Once you get into the cycle of daily classes, you will start to feel amazing!
But, please don’t worry if life gets busy one week and you just can’t squeeze it all in. New Beginnings are a natural part of a busy life.
Start where you are- we will meet you there. (This is one of the cornerstones to finding Happiness.)
We know that you have a lot going on and we want you to feel calmer, more rested, more energized, more fit, and just plain lighter and happier.
Do more Yoga. (Another cornerstone toward encountering Happiness!)
