Is this place still open? I went by the studio in Pearland and there were chains on the gate with nobody around. I went by when according to there website a class would be going on people would have or should have been there.
Military Spouse loves Yoga at Sundance – After a doctor's visit recommending I should participate in some type of exercise that would help with my stress level. We had just moved to Pearland. The following year my husband was deployed with the Texas Army National Guard, this again occurred the following year and continued with 5 deployments in his career. with the help of a friend, I found SUNDANCE YOGA. I enrolled in a Yoga I class. I continued to attend every class I could. I soon began to feel so much better, health wise. My doctor was impressed at my next visit and wanted to know what I was doing. After relating about taking classes, learning about yoga. The owner Valerie, teachers, Korin, Alex, Avril, Shelby, Debra, have taught me the principles of Asanas Yoga. They are knowledgeable and caring. I have gained self esteem, balance, strength, felxibility. Everyday during and after the classes I'am AMAZED at the posses I would have never thought I could accomplished. I would recommend "SUNDANCE YOGA ."
Gentle Yoga...what an experience! – I take a class named Gentle Yoga at Sundance in Friendswood. It has been a wonderful experience as I have gained strength, balance, and flexibility. The class is called "gentle" because we use props such as chairs, straps, and blocks to help "bring the floor up" to a level where we are more comfortable doing the various poses. You see, most of us have some sort of physical limitation such as a bad back, shoulder, hip, or knee that makes it hard for us to perform the poses in the traditional way. We still get quite a workout and all have seen amazing results. Valerie, the owner/teacher takes a very hands on approach and tweeks the poses to meet our individual needs. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and Valerie uses lighthearted humor as she explains in great detail how to execute a certain move and why it is important to do it correctly. I am doing poses I never believed I could. If you are of a mature age or have some physical limitations, this is the class for you.
Sundance changed my Life – The Friendswood studio is 'my' sacred space. No matter what kind of day I'm having the moment I step into the yoga room, which was remodeled in July '10, my spirit settles, my heart opens and yoga does its magic. In the intro class Valerie, the owner/teacher, introduced me to something as simple as the breath, how to sit comfortably on the floor and explained the flow of a yoga class. I remember leaving feeling amazed and excited about starting my yoga practice. Which is something I loudly protested for a long time because 1. I'm not flexible 2. Meditate?? I can't sit still and shut off my brain! Sound familiar?
I worked in a fast-paced, high-stress environment and my yoga practice became my sanctuary. Through Asanas (poses) I learned to ground myself & to balance; my body opened and relaxed, yet got stronger and flexible.. the positive heart centered themes, which weave throughout the class support the alignment principles that are taught to lead you in and out of poses safely and uplift your mental, emotional and spiritiual bodies. Valerie trains her teachers well and allows them the freedom to express themselves fully, yet everyone holds true to the teachings at heart creating unity and collective growth. It's such a beautifully supportive environment that I became a certified teacher through the Sundance Yoga School.
I am a student of yoga and Sundance is my 'home'. The positive life affirming messages & the training I continuously receive through workshops & events held at both studios, enable me to live this path of teaching yoga. I am deeply grateful for have found this ray of light in Friendswood and am so proud to be a part of growing our kula (community) in Pearland.
Yoga Sanctuary – I moved to this area over a year ago and found Sundance right away. I had lived in a town where yoga was offered but not at an actual studio. The first time I entered the studio for a class, I was hooked.
Practicing yoga at Sundance has taken my yoga to a new level. It is so much more than just a physical, stress-relieving practice. The Sundance environment - the space, teachers, energy - makes for a much more spiritual practice with other participants of like mind, body and spirit.
I also love that the studio offers a wide selection of retail products .. wonderful yoga clothing for men and women, a large CD collection, books, mats and cushions.
Sundance is my yoga sanctuary and community.
Wonderful – My experiences at Sundance Yoga Studios have been wonderful! I have gone there for about 6 years now. When I began, I started with the Mommy N Me class where I could take my toddler with me. I have since gone through two pregnancies and have LOVED doing yoga throughout prenatal care. My doctor and chiropractor were thrilled to hear that I was doing yoga throughout pregnancies as well. The Mommy and Me classes are wonderful for prenatal care, because it is such a gentle exercise. It is also great after babies to get your abs and core strong again! Valerie and the other instructors really cater to your personal needs throughout the sessions. I have also attended regular yoga classes in between pregnancies and always enjoy those as well. It is a very caring, loving environment where everyone is a friend!
caring, supportive environment – I have taken classes at Sundance for years, but in the last few, most of my experience has been with the Mommy N Me and prenatal yoga classes. Valerie, owner and instructor, starts each class with her calm, soothing voice, inducing an overall calm and relaxed manner in me. She is extremely knowledgeable in how the body works, and this knowledge extends to the prenatal and postnatal body. She knows just how to help the pregnant mama move safely in each trimester, and helps the postnatal mama to start regaining flexibility. Valerie is also very in tune with what each individual woman in the class needs and will often switch the focus of the class from what she planned to what we need. She is a talented and intuitive teacher. I've had the pleasure of taking classes from a few of her instructors. All have different strengths to bring to the table, yet there is a feeling of knowledge. They have knowledge to impart, these ladies, and their teaching reflects that.
YOGA! - Friendswood's Best Kept Secret.... – I have been coming to Sundance Yoga for years and I still cannot believe the number of people who walk in asking when did they move into their current location. I think they've been in the shopping center on the corner of FM2351 & FM518 for over 7 years now. The studio has such a diverse group of teachers, almost eclectic yet uniformed in their teachings. Valerie, the owner has chosen & groomed them well, they love their classes and vice versa. If yoga was part of a gym membership, I probably would have stopped going after a while, but almost 9 years later, I'm still going to Sundance! I like the style and the extra yoga opportunities that the studio bring in outside class times (workshops & events). I hope word gets out about this gem of a studio because people don't know what they're missing! The new 2010 renovations look awesome, clearly Valerie's invested in the studio means she's going to be here for many more years to come! For those living in Pearland, they should check out Sundance's Pearland studio over on Miller Ranch Road.
