Parker found yoga four years ago as an alternative to her usual intense exercise routine. She quickly realized that yoga was not just about the asana, although the poses can be intense, too. Instead, yoga is a lifestyle of compassion for all beings everywhere, and a practice that brings peace to the mind and acceptance of the day-to-day. She is formally trained in the Dharma and Power traditions, and incorporates each style in her classes. As runner and a yogi, she hopes her class will make you sweat, work the core and the lower half of your body, as you focus on quieting the mind.
