As a working mother and wife, NeSonya understands the challenge of “handling it all”. She recognizes the need for self-compassionate care. Thus, NeSonya enjoys sharing her passion of putting yoga principles into practice through classes that offer compassion for every body with curves.
Yoga is a system that includes the practice of yoga postures (asanas) and breathing exercises (pranayama), to help bring peace to the mind and body. This prepares the body for deeper spiritual experiences, such as meditation.
At our current yoga location, Southeast Raleigh YMCA (see below for address), there is a Curvy Yoga class on Fridays at 10:00AM where you’ll find everything that’s related to yoga. Our focus is to bring Hatha yoga, Asana, Kirtan, and more – as well as spiritual teachings – together under one roof, to offer students & teachers alike a full and rich yoga experience.
No matter what yoga style you choose to practice, you’ll likely see improvements in your health.

Hatha yoga represents the balance of opposites – cold and hot, fire and water, positive and negative, male and female. The name comes from two Sanskrit words meaning “sun” and “moon”. This form of yoga is the one most commonly practiced in the west. Hatha yoga is relatively gentle and slow-paced, which is great for beginners.
We encourage students to connect our inner world to our physical world through the play of the Asanas (postures). It is the dance of our lives, the choreography of the present moment, alive and free.
Our asana classes combine alignment, devotion, and philosophy in the traditional style of Vinyasa. Vinyasa means “to move with the breath”. The series of poses are designed to flow along with purposeful breathing.
We work with people of all experience levels. We provide a range of classes, from Beginner classes which include the basics and alignment, to more intermediate/advance classes exploring advanced poses and variations in the Asanas.
You are welcome to join one of our classes or to stop by to check it out. If you wish to experience more focused training, set up your own private session, or create a small class with a few of your close friends, Use our contact form on this website for more information.
At our yoga location we strive for no fluff and frills, just a great teacher and affordable prices. Our goal is to put a smile on your face, love in your heart, and a new spring in your step.
