There are many gyms in the Five Towns where residents can go to stay healthy and get into shape, but for those who may want a different kind of workout experience, there are other options than traditional centers where weight rooms and treadmills reign supreme.
Peaceful Presence Yoga and Massage Studio in Cedarhurst is one of these alternatives, where patrons get a full wellness experience for the body and for the mind. Andrew Kahn, owner and director of the studio, said it’s very unique taking yoga at a yoga studio, as opposed to a regular club. “When you go to a gym, it’s not the same experience,” he said. “This is what we do. We do yoga and we do it right.”
Kahn said he started his business about six years ago, and now there are more than 25 classes a week at his studio on Central Avenue. “We are very good for people who are stressed and are just looking to deal with that stress,” Kahn said. He spoke of inflexibility problems that come along with daily activities, such as driving and working at a computer. At the end of a long day, practicing yoga can help relieve these problems, increasing strength, flexibility and good circulation.
“Our mission is to promote health, vitality and peace,” Kahn said of his studio. Yoga classes, massage therapy and facials are all available at Peaceful Presence Yoga. For more information on the studio, you can visit their website at http://www.peacefulpresence.com/.
“The same spirit is in all of us,” Kahn said, “A natural kindness, patience, compassion and love. The studio holds a place for that spirit here in town.”
