Hi, my name is Deb Clark. I opened this yoga studio here in Ankeny, Iowa because of my passion for fitness and teaching.
In my 20 plus years in the fitness industry I have learned that being an instructor is more than just telling the participants to “do what I do” or “do this move or that position.”
It’s more than just leading a class. It should be more than a children’s game of follow the leader.
It’s about teaching the student about why this move or position is important. How their body should feel when done correctly. Where your heart rate should be when performing the activity. Motivation, encouragement and inspiration are also important.
When you become a student of The Yoga Experience you will receive this level of teaching in every class. Whether it’s yoga, Barre, or cardio classes.
And if you think it will just be the same thing over and over again you can forget that. Each class builds on what you’ve learned. Always something new.
If you are looking for a high energy workout, we’ve got it. If you need that time to unwind and reflect we have that too.
Many of our classes are only 30 minutes. But what you get in that 30 minutes will knock your socks off.
If you are a new student in the class you don’t have to worry about being left behind. I will give instruction on what you should be doing. I do this in every class so beginning, intermediate and advanced students know what they should be doing.
I have also learned that the environment is important to the teaching and learning process. That’s why I created a very private, comfortable and inviting studio. This is especially important for the yoga classes because it helps you relax, focus and eliminate stress.
In fact, the doors are locked at the beginning of every class so there are no interruptions. No one peering in the windows or wandering around watching. No clanking of weights or equipment. So I encourage you to arrive on time for class.
So, if you are ready to start your learning experience, I would personally like to invite you to start today.
