Observing Mind and Body: Sid Yoga

By Elisha Neubauer

Over the last decade, the number of adults performing yoga has nearly doubled according to the National Health Statistics report. This increase comes as no surprise when you step into a studio like Sid Yoga. Calming colors and minimalist furnishings set the tone for a tranquil experience. Expert, knowledgeable staff members are on hand to guide you during each practice and specialty programs designed for every level are available to further develop your skills.

Yoga has been known to improve flexibility, muscle tone, and balance. The benefits, however, can go beyond the aspect of physical fitness. As Sid McNairy, Founder/Owner of Sid Yoga Center, explains that, "Your yoga mat is a reflection of your life. What shows up during practice shows up off the mat. Mindfulness on the mat can create shifts in lifestyle, patterns, and thoughts."

The Sid Yoga studio focuses on teaching and expanding the practice of yoga. Its mission: "Live it to give it." Sessions are constructed to serve all levels in one class, giving beginners and advanced students the ability to practice simultaneously. McNairy explains, "We challenge students to observe how the mind and body move through each practice. This allows for self study." The studio offers multiple classes, including the Sid Yoga Power Vinyasa Sequence. This sequence is an athletic, flowing form of yoga designed to heal, detoxify, and exhilarate both the mind and body.

The studio offers workshops ranging from holistic nutrition to breath work, as well as a six week self-study program entitled Empowerment and Beyond- which provides insight and training in developing an at-home yoga practice and lifestyle. Sid Yoga is also an active participant in the First Nations Yoga Project, helping to bring yoga practices to First Nations reservations.

Whether you are looking to start practicing or are old friends with yoga, the right yoga studio can make all the difference. Sid Yoga Center has successfully created a space where "people of all genders, age, and backgrounds come together free to awaken to the truth that lies within."
