The move will also have other benefits with local acupuncturist Cherie Quinn moving into a space next door which Vanatko said will provide a kind of holistic center downtown.
Vanatko said yoga is perceived by many to be a fancy type of exercise which she wants to dispel.
“Yoga is for the masses,” Vanatko said. “I actually prefer working more one-on-one with people and spending my time dispelling the misconceptions of yoga.”
Classes are offered morning and evening for students of all ages. Vanatko says many of her students are in their 50s and 60s but she also had one that was 89 when she started.
Vanatko also offers breathing therapy, which includes the techniques of proper breathing, which include a slower, deeper, quieter and more regular breath. According to a brochure, proper breathing can help alleviate anxiety, panic attacks and depression also improve quality of life for those with asthma and other chronic respiratory diseases.
Vanatko says she plans on moving into her new location in early June, but is unsure of the date yet. For more information on Indra’s Grace, call 682-241-5020 or e-mail Sandra at firstname.lastname@example.org.
