Review of Ananda Yoga – Beaverton OR.
From: Rick Cady – Tualatin, OR.

“As a current student of Ayurveda, I had been looking to complement my studies with a Yoga tradition that would support the ideals espoused by the ancients related to the Yoga sciences. Given that the Western model of Yoga tends toward only a focus on the physical aspects of the practice, I was happy to find a more traditional practice of Hatha Yoga through the Ananda Temple here in Beaverton, OR. Teacher Melissa Heart brings this practice to life with her unique and effective teaching style with an emphasis on being conscious and still as we move into poses, hold the pose, and come out of the pose. This practice emphasizes utilizing the poses to relax the body and be aware of our state of mind to ultimately prepare for meditation. Melissa is a gem that I am grateful to have met, as you can feel her love for the practice and desire to share it with others. On a physical level, I had been diagnosed many years ago with a Lumbar spine defect that had given me significant pain and limitations for several decades, and this practice has made me virtually pain free in about 3 months. A true miracle. I am forever grateful and will be a lifetime supporter of Melissa and Ananda Yoga.”
