Each class has breathing exercises, warm-ups, a yoga set and a meditation. According to Debbie Cohen, "This form of yoga emphasizes inner growth and people work at their own pace. The combination of breathing, simple yoga poses and meditations help to strengthen the nervous system and balance the glands. This results in feelings of peace and well-being".
Ms. Cohen feels that the emphasis on perfect bodies and looking like a pretzel that is emphasized in our culture is not the true spirit of the yogic tradition. Her classes help each person to turn inwards and grow at their own rates. She is concerned that so many people feel intimidated and reluctant about taking a yoga class due to the way it is commercialized and associated with perfect abs and acrobatic poses. Her classes emphasize a non-competitive atmosphere where one can get free of the stress of the day and reach beyond the chatter of the mind to deeper harmony and bliss.
