The Neverending Benefits of Yoga: Bow Street Yoga Improves Quality of Life in Boston

By Paul Rowe

The discipline of yoga dramatically improves the lives of millions of Americans on a daily basis. Located in the heart of Somerville's Union Square, Bow Street Yoga's exceptional "faculty" (what they deem a "collection of yoga nerds"), provides a diverse spectrum of yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation based on the unique experiences and preferences of Bostonians. But what exactly are the overall benefits of yoga?

"Yoga is so multi-faceted that it is difficult to pin point a universal benefit; however, the practice of yoga can improve one's general feeling of health and wellness," says Bow Street Yoga's director Ryan Cunningham. "Students at Bow Street attend class for a wide variety of reasons including stress relief, physical activity, and improving one's focus and concentration."

A small neighborhood practice space with a dedicated group of yoga practitioners and teachers, Bow Street Yoga focuses on yoga as a practice for overall health and wellness, offering several rewarding small-group asana classes at affordable prices. This kind of instruction is personalized for each person who walks through the door seeking enlightenment of the spirit.

"Instead of focusing on a particular brand or style of yoga, we teach whoever shows up to class and strive to individualize the practice as much as possible for each student," says Cunningham.

Offering a wide range of events and opportunities from its own yoga instructors and teachers from all around the world, the hallmark of Bow Street Yoga's workshop programs is hands-down its Monthly Immersions: three-hour study periods focused on particular topics that are guaranteed to meet the needs of individuals seeking different benefits.

"These immersions allow our students to slow down and take their time integrating all of the information they have learned during our normal weekly classes," says Cunningham.

This kind of specialized personalization has made Bow Street Yoga a special oasis for Bostonians, forming healthier relationships between the bodies and minds of wide spectrum of yoga practitioners. The improvement of this mind-body relationship helps yoga students make the right choices regarding physical activity, diet, and general self-care.
