Yoga Center for Healthy Living Embraces 'Mind, Body, and Soul' Through Yoga

By Kelly Church

Since 2001, the Yoga Center for Healthy Living has been giving the Brighton, MI community a safe place to experience the healing benefits of yoga. Lee Ann Louis-Prescott is the owner and founder of the yoga facility and is a strong advocate for all the benefits of yoga.

"There is myriad of benefits to practicing yoga, for the mind, the body, the soul," Louis-Prescott said. "The mission of the Yoga Center for Healthy Living, LLC is to facilitate healing on entry level (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually) for each individual who walks through our doors."

Louis-Prescott believes that yoga incorporates more than just the physical parts of the body. It engages the mind and even spiritual elements.

"Yoga works from the inside out," Louis-Prescott said. "Mind, body and soul."

Yoga Center for Healthy Living offers a variety of classes that should appeal to any type of student, in any phase of their yoga practice. Standard classes include hatha, vinyasa, slow flow, yin, restorative and yoga nidra. Other classes include T.C.B. (Taking Care of Backs) to help students tend to the delicate muscles of the back. Ashtanga is another class that features sun salutations, standing and seated poses, and inversions in a room that's heated. The studio also offers prenatal yoga.

"For pregnant women in particular, we offer prenatal yoga, which welcomes all mothers-to-be at any stage of pregnancy," Louis-Prescott said. "Yoga poses can help ease some of the aches and pains of pregnancy. In this class, yoga postures are combined with breath work that helps prepare the expectant mother for childbirth."

Kids are welcome to attend classes at Yoga Center for Healthy Living as well. Kids classes include baby and parent yoga for newborns up to nine months of age, toddler and parent yoga, and yoga for kids, for ages three to nine.

Classes at Yoga Center for Healthy Living must be signed up for online, prior to the start of the class. Anyone can try their first class for $5, classes after that are $15, or $12 for seniors and students. Class packages can also be purchased in sets of five, 10 or 20. Students can also opt for unlimited yoga for one month, three months, six months or one year.

Other services offered at the studio include reiki treatments, a Japanese form of hands-on therapy that harnesses energy in the body to heal; private yoga; and Thai massage.
