Initially I came to the yoga center in the late 80’s, because a friend recommended it, and because it was nearby. I attended inconsistently for some time due to the demands of having small children at home. My 25 year association with the yoga center is in part because of the interactions with the teachers and with other students. I like that I’ve gotten to know others; and that there are “regulars” at each class. Just knowing that someone will notice if I’m there, or not, motivates me to attend. I also like the integration of different aspects of yoga and exposures to yoga philosophy.
