Edition 4 features: Live Love Yoga in Mason City, IA.
Last fall, I started going to a yoga class on Friday mornings at Integrative Medicine Consultants in Clear Lake. The class is lead by Amy Bell, who I am lucky to say, has become my friend.
She recently started her own yoga studio in Mason City. Here's a little blurb about how she got started and what her Live Love Yoga studio (in Mason City!) is all about:
My path to becoming a yoga teacher started more than fifteen years ago. On a whim I had purchased a book about yoga from a clearance table in a bookstore. As I read this book and began to move and treat my body and mind in the ways described, the more I came to realize and experience the benefits of this wonderful practice.
Over the years yoga has sometimes taken a backseat to things such as work and motherhood, but it has always been there waiting to welcome me back the moment I unroll my mat.
In 2011 I decided to pursue the art of teaching in order to share this gift with others. I believe yoga should be made accessible to everyone, and as a teacher it's my job to make that happen.
Classes at Live Love Yoga are filled with not only yoga's physical movements, but philosophy, meditation, and breathwork as well. I strive to present these with the utmost kindness, love, compassion.....and a little dose of humor.
The class schedule is:
Tuesday: 9:30 - 10:30/10:45 AM ~ Hatha / Flow 12:10 - 12-55 PM ~ Relax and Restore 4:30 - 5:30/5:45 PM ~ Hatha / Flow

Friday: (at Integrative Medicine Consultants in Clear Lake) 8:30 - 9:30 AM ~ Hatha / Flow
(All classes are mixed levels.)
And her studio can be found at: 20 5th Street Northwest Mason City
