The Arkansas Yoga Center is the premier location for yoga, tai chi, and meditation in the state of Arkansas. A peaceful eco-green facility, custom designed and built with the student in mind, helps reduce stress and create a sense of calm and relaxation. AYC’s founder and director, Andrea Fournet, E-RYT 500, is the director of AYC’s yoga teacher certification program. She is also a professional speaker and business consultant. Her knowledge of yoga is brought into thousands of homes each week through her TV series “Yoga with Andrea,” broadcast on Jones Television in Northwest Arkansas. The Arkansas Yoga Center offers over 20 group classes each week, private sessions, specialty classes and weekend workshops. AYC is a registered school with the Yoga Alliance and offers yoga teacher certification training. Their competent, certified teachers are trained in the VariYoga™ style. VariYoga™ is the collaborative effort of Andrea Fournet and Bryan Fowler, who meld eclectic backgrounds, influenced by the traditions of Iyengar, Anusara, and Viniyoga. They bring over 20 years of combined experience for a nondogmatic teaching approach dedicated to respecting and helping students learn the full benefits of hatha yoga. VariYoga™ is a flowing practice, working with the breath and sequencing of poses ranging from gentle to vigorous, depending on individual comfort and ability. In addition, classes incorporate alignment, breathing techniques, and the philosophical understanding of hatha yoga. Andrea and Bryan also take their VariYoga™ training on the road, offering weekend workshops around the country. Visit the website at www.aryoga.com.
