For an inspirational story about service in a community, look no further than the yoga studio run by Lesli Kotloski. A recent article published by the Pittsburgh Almanac featured her and her journey through yoga.
The news source explained that she only just became a yoga instructor, but that she is already reaping the benefits of teaching yoga basics poses.
And so are her students. They told the Almanac that the mind-body regimen has helped them loosen up, calm down, let out their tension and take in the world around them.
Long-time practitioner Pascale Kippelen explained how the system has changed his life. "I've practiced yoga for more than nine years," he told the newspaper. "With the stress and crises I've endured, yoga has given a balance to my life. I visit this studio twice each week and practice about a half hour each day at home."
And what does Kotloski advise beginners to do?
"Look for a yoga class that fits," she said in summary. "An inviting space of calm, a teacher who is comfortable to be with and a practice that incorporates breathing, meditation, stretching, strengthening and relaxation is what is needed to deal with life and its issues."
That's Dahn Yoga in a nutshell!
