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.

Chula Vista Yoga Center, San Diego County
  255 E Street - Chula Vista, CA              
"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..."

Coil Yoga, Fresno County

"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..."

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."
