“Affordable Yoga simply made me live again.”

 

Myriam's Story

Myriam, 30 and moved to Paris 5 years ago. Affordable Yoga changed my life!

I don’t say this lightly.

I had a discal hernia last year, in the lumbar area, and I couldn't move from my bed for several months. I then had difficulty walking, bending … painkillers and staying in bed didn’t help.

One day,  I read testimonials of people who had discal hernias about how much yoga helped them - so I decided to give it a try.

But living in Paris, the most expensive city I know, yoga classes were too expensive for me! Then a friend of mine told me about "Meetup" and there I found out about Affordable Yoga.

I checked in for a class ... and the miracle happened : I was able to move again. Yoga exercises helped me stretch my spine, and I could go out again !! I was able to resume my normal life after few sessions of Affordable Yoga! I couldn’t do every exercise and this was ok -  the teachers reminded me to listen to my body and not hurt myself.

So yes, Affordable Yoga simply made me live again, like a re-birth :)

“J'adore…”

 

Sarah's Story

I have been an Affordable Yoga customer since arriving in Paris last year and now I buy 50 class passes at a time as I enjoy it so much. It's great value and so much to choose from.  I have yet to find a teacher who is not passionate and good at what they do!  Great concept and terrific classes!

Affordable Yoga is so much more than yoga, it's Pilates, core strength, boot camp fitness and 'shaking your booty' in Zumba classes. It's about passionate teachers, great classmates who become good friends and most importantly it is always great fun! J'adore...

“The positive vibe that you get in the class is truly amazing.”

 

Araki's Story


I discovered yoga in London 3 years ago and fell in love with the practice. I came back to France last December and thought I would not to be able to find a suitable place to do Yoga in Paris, but then I found Affordable Yoga on Meetup and I am so glad! The courses are not only super affordable compared to other places in Paris but the teachers and the positive (often spiritual) vibe that you get in the class is truly amazing. I am still a beginner because I am not a regular practitioner but I enjoy the Vinyasa Flow and Restorative yoga courses a lot, and cannot wait to try new courses and venues.

Convenient!

Yes definitely, because we can easily go to a course at any time of the day, anywhere in Paris without much notice. It's a great way to get relieved from the stress of Paris while having the feeling of leaving the country for an hour or so.

Deeply relaxed yet energized with positivity!

“Affordable Yoga helped me to not find excuses to be lazy.”

 

Coraline's Story

I have been taking yoga classes with AYF for almost a year now. And I must say : THANK YOU! I started yoga in Australia and then I took a retreat in Bali. My first classes were terrible, I hated it because all my insecurities came back and I felt helpless. I decided to keep it up for two months and then stop if I didn't like it. I never stopped. Yoga and I became best friends.

I returned to Paris, I was unemployed and I discovered Affordable Yoga & Fitness. I tried many classes (core, hatha, detox, flow,...) and I fell in love with the dynamic class on Sundays. I was so enthusiastic that my boyfriend and my flatmate came with me to try the experience. My boyfriend was the one to register first on Sundays after that :)

I tell everyone willing to listen how amazing it is to be able to do yoga for a very modest price with so many different teachers.

 

What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Affordable Yoga and Fitness?

 

Gratitude

“What a beautiful collection of humans!”

 

Benjamin's Story


The first thing I did upon moving to Paris was to Google 'English Speaking Yoga', as I barely knew any French at the time. To discover a group that not only catered to that request but also allowed me to have unlimited yoga for my first month was like a dream! I knew straightaway that this was the environment and the community that I wanted to be a part of. 

I was fortunate enough to join the teaching team and begin to share a variety of offerings, whatever my heart was inspired towards and whatever needs we felt the group was asking for. From Slow Flow Yoga and Yoga Dance Fusion, to Meditation Techniques and Chakra Centered Movement, my years with Affordable Yoga & Fitness have been an epicenter of self-discovery and joyous collaboration with the astonishing group of like-minded people that come through our classes every week. What a beautiful collection of humans!!

Community

 

Has being an Affordable Yoga and Fitness customer impacted your daily life in a positive way?

 

Without a doubt. I tell my friends and my students constantly what a blessing it is to know that for at least one hour, almost every day, I am going to be immersed with the healing, positive vibes that are so very present in all of our classes. The ability to move and breathe and concentrate among a tribe of people passionate about maintaining harmony within their Spirits, Minds, and Bodies is something I truly treasure.

 

After you leave one of our classes, how do you usually feel?

 

I feel connected. To myself, to my fellow yogis, and as an extension of that, to the city of Paris, and the whole of humanity. Really. In a city where it's so easy to feel alone among the crowds, Affordable Yoga & Fitness gives a chance to really touch base with yourself and beautiful souls on their mats beside you.
