Wide Angle Yoga
For those looking for a more intimate yoga experience, Wide Angle Yoga is a safe place to learn in a one-on-one or small group environment. Not everyone wants to strut their stuff in yoga pants in front of a crowd, so this is a good opportunity to get in your poses without the feeling of exhibitionism. Plus, the individual attention can help you grow in your yoga skills more quickly.
Yoga With Jaimee
Yogi Jaimee Ratliff was voted the 2018 Person to Watch in the Best of Atlanta section of Atlanta Magazine. She has created her own version of yoga that combines elements of hip hop, all of which has made her an in-demand instructor all over town. As she says, “If Deepak and Tupac created a yoga class together, this would be it.” She doesn’t have a permanent studio, but moves her classes around to different locations. Whether you are getting your flow on to Beyonce or Bob Marley, you will find your center in a whole new way with Jaimee. You can find out where she’ll be by following her Facebook.
With all the craziness in the world, it’s important to find time for you. Try out any of these Atlant yoga options and find your alignment. You’ll thank yourself!
