Customers may choose from the class offerings to tailor their own bridal or wedding yoga class packages and studio space is available for large groups. Clients of the company’s founder and owner, Lisa Helfer, have been very pleased with the results. "The Yoga for Brides and Yoga for Weddings classes have been an amazingly positive experience for many brides," she said.

Helfer added, "My clients have remarked at how they not only got into the best shape of their lives because of incorporating the physical practice of yoga into their wedding planning process," she said, "but that the philosophical tenets of yoga have helped them combat the commonly known stresses during this important passage in their lives. It helps them create a space to develop inner peace, tranquility, compassion, and grace for themselves, their fiancé, and family," Helfer said.
