"Sisters Yoga is Fresno's first all-female yoga studio. Unlike traditional yoga studios, Sisters focuses on a happier, looser, less traditional form of yoga which includes music that runs from R&B to pop to World. Instructors also incorporate props such as blocks and straps to help students attain correct alignment regardless of their skill level. Classes range from Happy Hour yoga which is more of a "workout", to "Chill Out" which is restorative, gentle yoga. A Pilates mat class, and "Yo-God!" which is Christian-based, free to the community and half of donations go to the Marjaree Mason Center. Sisters Yoga also holds many monthly, dance workout workshops. Owner Kandis Kliewer and Founder Chaz Russ, who are registered with Yoga Alliance, believe all females need a place where they can nourish themselves away from relationships and responsibilities. Sisters Yoga provides a space where the female yogi (age 7 and up) can tune into her unique melody, the same melody that serves as the soundtrack to her life. This is a place where women can “let their hair down,” learn how to laugh at their misfortunes, tend to the garden of their self-esteem, and amaze themselves with their growing inner and outer strengths."

"Opening COIL YOGA (an acronym for Conscious, Open, Integrated, Living) in the spring of 2002 has been the most rewarding decision I have ever made. The joy and love I am able to share and receive from the community of people at COIL YOGA is priceless. It was not an easy decision to leave the stability of my job at Community Medical Foundation and take a leap of faith to become a small business owner in Downtown Fresno. Thanks to that job at Community, I found the space that is now COIL YOGA. As soon as I saw the room, I knew I wanted it to be a Yoga studio. Shortly after that, I discovered the owner of the building was Arthur Dyson, a long-time friend of my late grandfather. One sign after another continued to "show up" and support my desire to take that exciting leap. In its infinite wisdom, the universe provided exactly what was needed so that my vision could become a reality ... one breath at a time ...one student at a time..."

"Director Michael Downing is passionate about yoga. This is not a hobby or a second job, this is his life. That dedication is what has helped transform so many lives over the last six years. People come to Yoga For Living for many reasons, but the reason that so many stay and develop a regular yoga practice is because the change in their bodies and in their lives is profound. Michael is proud of the team of instructors who share his passion for yoga and for the nurturing, supportive environment that they provide for the students. Yoga teacher MaryAnn Jones once said "I love teaching yoga because yoga attracts the best people, the cream of the crop" This could not be more true of the Yoga For Living Kula or community, where students are more than just customers, they are truly friends. As instructors, we continue to learn each day, from our students and for this we are grateful. We invite you to email us and share your personal yoga story. We love hearing how yoga has changed your life. Melinda Downing, Yoga For Living. '"At Yoga For Living, we believe yoga is about challenging the breath. We do this by putting the body in various poses and remembering to breathe. It's not so much about flexibility of the body, but rather our ability to relax and breathe when we feel challenged in a pose. When we walk out the door and are faced with stressful situations in our day to day lives, we can use that same relaxed breathing to get us through any situation.For all of us no matter what our goals or accomplishments, the next thing for all of us to do...is breathe." Michael Downing, director, Yoga For Living."

"For over 60 years, B.K.S. Iyengar has developed a remarkable, innovative and inspired approach to the classical hatha yoga. Through his own vigorous practice, careful study of the earliest available texts, and instruction of thousands of students from all over the world, he has reached back to the roots of yoga and brought forth a revitalization of the ancient art of yoga. B.K.S. Iyengar is the author of Light on yoga, Light on Pranayama, The Art of Yoga, The Tree of Yoga, and Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Visit his official site bksiyengar.com. Yoga as taught by the Iyengars emphasizes the integration of the body, mind and spirit. The Iyengar approach to yoga is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga as expounded by Patajali in his classic treatise, The Yoga Sutras. Iyengar yoga emphasizes precise body alignment, development of strength, stamina, flexibility, and balance, as well as concentration and meditation."
