The Yoga Connection Keeps Broward County Flexible

By Mike Abelson

Brian Schwartz a roundabout path to the world of yoga. A former financial professional, Schwartz was looking for a change in his life when love brought him to the zen world of yoga.

Schwartz met his now wife, Amy, seven years ago and a year later they purchased Yoga Connection in Davie, Florida.

"I wanted a business which involved health and wellness, something that really helped people," Schwartz said. "Amy had been practicing Yoga for years and got me very interested in the idea of owning a Yoga studio. A year later I ended up buying YC. The studio had built a great reputation already, and we knew that it could be upgraded and made even better."

Yoga Connection had been open for 10 years prior to Schwartz purchasing the company and has been faithfully serving the people of Broward county for all those years. A second location in Pembroke Pines is coming in the near future as growth has been the name of the game for Yoga Connection.

Yoga Connection has cultivated a large, diverse clientele and that's in part to its affordable pricing. The first class is free for new clients and classes start at $18 or $12 for students, seniors, and members of the military.

"Yoga Connection® prides itself on the idea that we provide yoga for everybody, and that's the culture we've created," Schwartz said. "We don't push one type of yoga on anyone and our teachers are very diversified. We have male and female teachers, old and young, all different body shapes/sizes, and they make our clients feel comfortable and not intimidated. Our clientele is equally as diverse, and you might see anyone from a college student, to a 70 year old, to one of the Miami Dolphins practicing on any given day."

Both heated and non-heated yoga are offered as are teacher training courses. Beyond the traditional yoga classes, the studio offers a variety of workshops ranging from meditation and breathing to more spiritual exercises.

"Some of our Workshops focus on various aspects of Yoga asanas (poses), for example a clinic on how to to balancing poses, or more advanced postures," Schwartz said. "We try to provide our clients with a variety of fun and interesting offerings to choose from."
