I have been practicing yoga at Yoga On York for almost 10 years. When I started, I had recently moved to Maine from New York City, where I had an incredible yoga teacher and impossibly high standards for what a yoga studio should provide. After trying almost 10 different studios within a generous radius from my house, including several in Portland, I finally found Yoga On York. Since I live in Kennebunkport it takes me 35 minutes to get to the studio–but there is no substitute, and I gratefully make the drive at least three times a week.
Rae and Jeff–and their highly skilled, well-trained group of instructors–have an authentic, palpable commitment to quality. They offer a depth of knowledge, a range of teaching styles, and a genuine devotion to individual growth. They never just go through the motions (and won’t let you either!). They have created more than just a studio; they have created a community that is safe, supportive, and encouraging. When I leave a class my body has strengthened, my shoulders have relaxed, my voice has deepened, my mind has calmed. I once read that going to yoga is the gym, therapy and church all wrapped into one; Yoga on York achieves this trifecta for me every time.
