Flexibility will eventually come, along with other benefits like, “awareness going inward,” she said, “feeling your muscles and bones and aligning them; done properly it becomes meditative.”
Hudak oversees five other teachers at the Moscow Yoga Center, located on the second floor of a Main Street building since 1991. The center offers classes for beginners that are slow, easy and progressive. It also offers classes for more advanced students. In addition there is a free, weekly class open to anyone from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Tuesdays at the Latah Recovery Center.
“You don’t have to do anything you’re not comfortable with,” Hudak said about any yoga class.
Over the years, many people have told Hudak they never knew how to relax before they learned yoga. She was shocked the first time she heard that; now she knows it’s a common need.
“You can learn relaxation,” Hudak said.
