      When we visit Stuart, Florida we always practice Ashtanga Yoga at Surya Yoga with Lisa McClellan and Stuart Waugh. Surya means, “Sun” in Sanskrit and there is no better way to start the day than with Surya Namaskara A and B followed by the Ashtanga primary series. Lisa and Stuart have a tremendous passion for Ashtanga yoga, which shines through their teaching and dedication to creating a steady and reliable yoga community in Stuart, Florida. One of the best things about Ashtanga yoga is the community that extends from Mysore, India to Florida and the rest of the globe. At Surya yoga you feel at home. Lisa and Stuart have opened their doors to the world and have made a beautiful, welcoming space to learn and practice yoga. They offer both guided classes and traditional Mysore style self practice. The couple is attractive to look at and their charming personalities make you want to hang around the studio all day. Lisa has an ageless beauty and a great sense of humor that makes you laugh at yourself and enjoy an otherwise challenging yoga sequence. Stuart is the perfect male compliment to Lisa and has a great deal of knowledge and experience with Ashtanga Yoga.

     Mysore practice with Stuart is ideal for the dedicated student. He pushes you to your limits with a gentle touch, making skillful, subtle adjustments to your postures. On Saturday mornings Lisa & Stuart lead Full Primary Series together where their combined energy is felt by all. Lisa leads the class while Stuart works with each student on alignment. One obvious change from Ashtange Yoga in Miami Beach to Stuart is the varied ages and body types at Surya Yoga. It is incredibly motivating to practice in the same room as students double your age who are working on all different levels of the same sequence, some even binding in Marichyasana D and dropping back into back bends, wow! This reminds us that Ashtanga Yoga is for everyone. Thank you Lisa & Stuart for your selfless service and showing so many people the way to Yoga.

    We met Lisa & Stuart in Miami Beach 2 years ago at Miami Life Center while taking a workshop with Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann, who are Lisa & Stuart’s teachers. Surya Yoga is located at 2470 Southeast Federal Highway in Stuart, FL.
