Okay place – I'm brand brand new to yoga and I finally decided to give into the yoga craze and try it out. CCY is right by my house so I thought itd be a perfect place to start.
I tried calling to ask a few questions, but CCY only has an answering machine. I left a message but noone ever called me back. I arrived 3 minutes late to the intro class (because I couldnt find parking), and I wanted to ask a question before I went into the class, but this rude lady with dark curly hair, was snotty with me and acted like I was wasting her time, didn't answer my question, and practically threw me into the intro class.
I wanted to leave right away, but when I met the intro teacher John, I had to stay. He is so nice and does a great job giving beginners a lot of yoga info. He gave us some yoga history and tips for beginners while taking us through basic yoga moves. He is fabulous. The room where the class is held is small, but we all fit.
I tried the intro class one more time, but John wasn't there, and the teacher there wasn't very good. She was nice, but I still couldn't get over that rude lady from the first time I was there.
Despite that experience, I've moved on and I've found my niche at a different yoga studio. If you like unfriendly staff go to CCY.
This place is great! – I am a total neophyte to yoga and this place is perfect -- they have classes for my level but also for those who actually know what they are doing. My favorite class is Yoga for Stiff Bodies and Scott is an amazing teacher. You will leave his class feeling totally centered! He has the perfect voice, a great tempo to his class and just the right level of challenge. Core with Sheldon is also a fantastic class -- he is not afraid to help you improve your practice!
not reccomended – Picture the locker room in a Jr. High before roll call...Well thats what you have. Classes are loud, with a 'clickish' atmosphere to boot. If your in to that...
ccy rocks! – Very community oriented, a place to meet good people and relate on the use of the body. Very friendly atmosphere, low pressure environment. Wide range of classes to choose from to fit varying skill levels. Teachers are looking to get you into your body, not into your ego.
This Is The Place! – It's hard to find good yoga classes. Once you find the right class for your tastes and level, you will be hooked on Centered City.
Instructors are fabulous and with a sense of humor. D'ana (owner) is a real community-builder, often encouraging involvement in humanitarian campaigns both locally and otherwise- and she also offers heavily-discounted prices for teachers and single parents.
If you are interested in yoga for your body and soul, try Centered City.
Everyone Knows your Name – Quiet, peaceful, zen like? Sure, I like to feel like I'm getting in touch with my inner feelings, and at Centered City I certainly DO feel centered. But Centered City goes a step further in making you feel AT HOME. It's a place where everyone knows your name right from the start. The focus, concentration, and instruction in every class is top notch. Plus you feel comfortable asking questions in an atmosphere that invites exploration.
One sweaty mess – A freind told me this was the place to go and i about kicked her for that. The class I attended was well over full and way way too hot. I enjoy a good power class and a good teacher but this was basically a "class on script". I'm not sure if the instructor ever even came over to see how I was doing or if I had any previous injuries. It looked like much of the class was well behind in knowing how to do what the teacher was asking, just a little scary. It seemed that the few who could come up with how to do the poses we're very proud about it, I am very happy for them. I think I'll look at some of the other places and meet my friend some time after her next class instead of during.
