I wanted to support a local yogi over the weekend by taking her class at Dave’s Astanga Yoga in Scottsdale. It was my first visit to the studio, which appears to be more about authenticity than looks. Denise, who led the class, was so warm and welcoming, and she gave lots of options throughout class. I’m sure she will make a great teacher when she graduates from teacher training — she is one now!
While I love my home studio, I enjoy practicing at other places from time to time to experience different sequences and teachers. I’ll be back to Dave’s for sure.
On a related note, you can also find free yoga every Tuesday night at the Palomar Hotel in downtown Phoenix. The sessions are taught by different instructors each week.
