"I began yoga practice to counteract the overuse injuries of climbing and mountain biking. As my physical body healed, the psychological effects of yoga began to manifest: clear thinking, open heart, and relaxed mind. It was the discovery of these that set me on my yoga journey for good. I practice yoga because it feels good and is the only thing keeping me sane some days. I teach yoga to share what has been taught to me. My only goal is for others to become capable of finding their own path to contentment. I began my yoga studies at an Iyengar studio in Leeds, England, where I practiced for 4 years. During this time, I also attended a teacher training course at the Sivananda ashram in Kitzbühl, Austria. I began teaching in the UK, and have taught in AR at the (now gone) Center for Exercise and at the U of A in the HPER complex, both in Fayetteville. Now, I feel gratitude for my time teaching here, at Yoga Story."

Todd Verrone instructs the following:
Lunch Time Flow
This is a 50 minute class. WARM ~ A slower vinyasa flow similar to hot class but with less intensity and heat. A good break in the middle of the day that won’t leave you a sweaty mess. You will be destressed and ready for the rest of your day. Great for all levels.
Explore Yoga at The Down Dog
WARM ~ Unlike our flow classes, Explore takes you through a more Iyengar-based practice which emphasizes standing postures and refining alignment. Lots of hands-on assisting, pranayama and meditation. Great for all levels.
