BY NATALI IVERSON - JUNE 9, 2015

Thinking of trying out yoga? From improved flexibility to stress relief and many other surprising health benefits, yoga might be the perfect exercise for you – and it’s a whole lot of fun too. Hence, Feel Good Yoga, situated in Walmer, Port Elizabeth, has ensured that you don’t have to look far for this centuries-old healing and relaxation technique.

Feel Good Yoga, and The Zen Way brand, which is also found in the same studio, caters for every-‘body’, from six-week-old babies to 104-year olds. They offer a selection of yoga classes in several styles – including Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, six days a week, in the mornings and evenings. Hence, you do not have an excuse not to join their classes.

Michelle Stanyon, the owner of Feel Good Yoga, says that by doing yoga, you can create a ‘body that feels good on the inside and looks good outside’. While she specialises in the Vinyasa yoga style, she also hosts the ‘Feel Good Kids Yoga’, a children’s yoga class. This class is designed to help kids gain strength, flexibility as well as balance at a young age, which will also benefit them in the future.

Crystal Potgieter is the face of Feel Good Yoga, while also being an ambassador for NutriTech, which means she is able to share with you her nutritional and fitness knowledge in your quest for a ‘feel good’ lifestyle.

Candice Blom, who owns The Zen Way brand, offers fertility, pregnancy and baby yoga. The ‘Zenbaby’ yoga reputedly helps mothers and babies to bond in a nurturing environment and instils love and trust between the two. She is currently the only baby yoga instructor in Port Elizabeth.

Ann Harty-Smith brings her amazingly unique style of Yoga flex classes to improve flexibility through yoga postures.

Angela De Franca specialises in The Myyo Technique - which involves pressure being applied to specific points inside the muscles, whilst also adding passive stretching and yoga poses. This technique helps with pain and tension relief. She also teaches the intermediate yoga classes.

Surprisingly, while yoga has its roots in Hinduism, at Feel Good Yoga, it is not based on any religion. It is just a tool for body, mind and breath awareness. At Feel Good Yoga, you can practice yoga alongside your other religious or philosophical beliefs!
