Everyone longs for a place where health and community come together. YogaSoul, located at 64 Princeton Hightstown Road in the heart of West Windsor just a few blocks from the Princeton Junction train station, is exactly that place.
Owner Cristina Alvarez proudly states, “Our mission has always been to inspire love and compassion. We provide a welcoming space where participants can awaken, heal and live mindfully.”
“One of our primary goals is to provide opportunities for all to experience the power of yoga. Our Drop In classes are only $18 and because we believe yoga should be accessible to all, we offer several $5 classes each week. This is a great way to try a new style, new teacher or simply make a sustainable yoga practice on a budget.”
“We encourage everyone to experience yoga’s power and offer a special introductory pricing for new students of $21 for 21 days of unlimited classes. Three weeks is the optimal length of time to make an activity a habit, a healthy and empowering habit. You will notice a difference in your body.”
Alvarez has been at the helm of YogaSoul since 2017 and maintains the principles of founder Linda Domino to create a safe and welcoming space for many segments of the community to gather and grow.
“We emphasize the restorative nature of yoga and embrace participants of all levels, from those who are brand new to the practice to seasoned instructors who want to keep learning and expanding their awareness,” says Alvarez. “Our Foundation class explores asana, alignment, and breath in a safe, supportive environment. It is both an introductory class for new students and a refresher for regular practitioners. In addition, we offer a special class for ‘Tweens because it’s never too early to expand your body and your mind.”
YogaSoul’s wide range of classes let students choose their own level of instruction based on personal intentions. Active classes such as hot yoga invigorate while gentler classes such as Slow Flow ease the pace to allow students to feel each breath intimately, refine movements, and experience all the sensations of the practice.
Beyond regular classes, YogaSoul offers specialized programs and events.
“For example, YogaSoul’s 200-Hour Yoga Alliance approved teacher training program is a special offering for students interested in teaching yoga or looking to just deepen their own practice. I and a team of YogaSoul instructors immerse participants in the study of yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, anatomy, Ayurveda, philosophy, assisting, and much more,” Alvarez says. “We also offer private training classes to learn poses, refine alignment, challenge your edge or understand modifications that will enhance your practice. Plans are individually crafted.”
YogaSoul’s six-week prenatal series is designed to empower expecting mothers to honor the body’s strength and capability during pregnancy. Participants focus on muscles to stay fit, prepare for birth and alleviate discomforts associated with pregnancy. It is a practice of self-care that connects mom and baby. Guest teacher, Sarah Gallo, is a certified yoga/prenatal yoga teacher.
