"What makes A Gentle Way Yoga Center Special? More than anything else, it is our students. When you are new it takes awhile to start feeling comfortable at a new Yoga Center, but my heart soars each time a new student attends one of my classes and one of our regular students jumps up to introduce themselves and help the new student with their set-up and props. It is so obvious how much some of you appreciate this Health and Healing Center, and this makes our work so much easier. If you are new to our Center, please visit our Testimonial page and meet some of our students and read how much yoga has helped them.
Thank you for your support! We - the staff a AGW, will continue to study the endless and timeless asanas and philosophies of yoga, so that we may keep our classes fresh and interesting for you."

"Liberation these day has to do so much with having a healthy body and freedom from suffering. More people are turning to Yoga to alleviate pain than for any other reason. Yoga teaches us that in order to relive our physical pain, we must also free our minds from suffering and open our hearts. On a physical level, Yoga postures relieve the backaches, headaches, and strained ligaments a student may suffer. Yoga has poses to correct postural defects and bring flexibility and alignment to the spine to bring vital dormant energy back into your body. On a deeper level, yoga also balances the nervous system, calming the nerves and relieving the psychological pain of depression, anxiety, and grief. Once the physical body is healthy,and the mind is calm, clear, and free of mental stress the yogi then realizes his or her own divinity, and that realization releases him or her from suffering..."

"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."
"Pilates is an exercise that has been practiced in the US since the 1920's. It is named after it’s creator Joseph H. Pilates.
The exercises are composed of many controlled, precise movements, designed to stretch and strengthen, creating long lean muscles without bulk.
The exercises require concentration and deep controlled breaths for a complete mind body workout.
The focus of the exercises is on the abdominal and back muscles (often called the “core” or “powerhouse” muscles) to build strength and agility in a balanced method.
The exercises can be done on a floor mat or with Pilates apparatus based on the designs of Joseph Pilates."
"Our Pilates studio in San Diego, is specialized in Pilates Reformer group classes. You will be using the Reformer Pilates Machine during the entire Pilates Session. It's a great value, since the group Pilates classses are more affordable then a private Pilates session, yet you will have plenty of attention since the number of students is limited to only 6 per class. Great diference in quality when compared to other places that charges about the same but have many more machines.
SAVE BIG!!! You don’t need to take a Private Pilates class in order to get started. Our “Pilates Level 1-2”, “Pilates All Levels” or “Intro to Power Pilates” classes are designed for beginners and you will get plenty of instruction and attention as you save $$$. Private Pilates classes are also available upon request."
