"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."

"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..."

"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."

"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..."
