This month’s post is about two of my favorite yoga instructors in town, Nicole Ferguson and Kelli Harrington. I’ve been huge fans of theirs for over five years now, and I’m very happy to say that they now have their own yoga studio RED YOGA on the west side of Ann Arbor near Zingerman’s Roadhouse.
If you’ve never tried yoga before, I strongly recommend it. It doesn’t matter how flexible you are (or aren’t), but rather, it’s a great practice to help keep you grounded and centered during your busy life. For me, it helps with keeping me in the present moment, something that’s incredibly hard to do.
As a hairstylist, my job is quite physical, so integrating yoga into my schedule has helped me stay in shape while working. I often don’t even realize my poor posture while doing hair! Yoga is a great way to “straighten” out my body after working on my feet all day. Putting it into different positions (the spinal twist is a personal favorite) to help counter what I’ve been doing for the past several hours.
The classes at RED YOGA are fun, challenging, inspirational, and VERY sweaty. So come prepared with water and a hand towel to stay hydrated and to wipe away your sweat. They use a different type of heating (infrared) to warm up your muscles and help you to gain greater flexibility. You can read more about that on their website though: http://www.redyogaannarbor.com/infrared/.
Overall, the team of yogis at RED YOGA that Nicole and Kelli have put together is awesome! Take any class with any instructor and you won’t be disappointed. After your first class, you can sign up for two month’s unlimited for only $99!
Yoga has changed and will continue to change my life for the better, and I greatly appreciate Nicole and Kelli helping to guide me through that positive change. You are two great ladies! Thank you!
