Spira Power Yoga: New WSB sponsor, with Friday party!

Today we welcome a new sponsor, Spira Power Yoga, at 2332 California SW, across from the Admiral Theater. Spira is operated by Dora Gyarmati. Her dream was to create a space where people get a strong workout, but in a fun, easy-going environment that also supports the wisdom and teachings of yoga tradition. Dora hopes to open up yoga to a wider audience by using English terms, and teaching mindfulness, concentration, and relaxation while providing a full-body exercise. The studio is bright and spacious. The lobby area looks more like a living room, so students feel comfortable lingering and talking to friends. The artwork in the lobby was created by Dora’s mom, all in the spirit of love and support; that is exactly what she hopes to give to Spira Power Yoga students – love and support.

Dora feels happiness and community are the best route to health. This is why on October 7th (this Friday), starting at 8 pm, Spira is featuring a dynamic yoga class to the soulful sounds of Correo Aereo, playing live in the studio. Yoga class is from 8-9 pm, then a short break, and a party with more live music, plus wine and chocolate tasting. Students and visitors are welcome to attend the class and the post-class party, or they can purchase tickets just for the party with wine, chocolate, and live music. For more information, go to Spira’s workshop webpage and scroll down to “Yoga Lush.” The class and party represent one way that, as Dora says, “We teach a very physical and challenging practice, but we have fun doing it. The idea is to find grace and balance in life with lightness and a sense of humor. We teach yoga as a western art. We translate the eastern art of yoga to a Western audience, make it accessible and fun and open to all spiritual and religious paths.”

We thank Spira Power Yoga for sponsoring independent, community-collaborative neighborhood news on WSB; find our current sponsor team listed in directory format here, and find info on joining the team by going here.
