I discovered yoga at Studio Perfect. This is the place where I did my indoor cycling with Arthur Rijker. Patricia Fontana, who also worked there, suggested that I take an Asthanga class to improve my lung capacity and my performance on the mountain bike.

If you hear of a yoga class that appeals to you, contact the yoga teacher. Phone her up, or send her an email. When she responds, use the time to see how you feel about the teacher.
