Catch the Light at DIG Yoga in Lambertville
By Taylor Smith
Housed in a former factory space at 240 North Union Street in Lambertville, DIG Yoga was founded in 2010 by Sue Elkind and Anime Jezzeny. DIG maintains a following among area residents who find that the architectural characteristics of the studio deepens their practice. Specifically, the light from the large windows that reverberates around the room and reflects beautifully off of the bamboo floors.
Classes are offered throughout the day, seemingly on the hour. Yoga class options include aerial yoga, release + stretch, align + prop, yin yoga, gentle yoga, intermediate/advanced practice, restoratives, basics, beginner yoga, mixed level, and more. DIG’s teachers maintain that the physical practice of asana combined with correct breath work leads to significantly deeper levels of stress relief, tension release, and meditation. As a therapeutic modality, yoga helps students to recover from injury, pain, and/or misalignment.
The DIG kid’s yoga program encourages “joy in the journey” and helps to promote a spirit of collaboration, attention, and concentration among boys and girls ages 6-12. Most importantly, children will find the yoga sessions to be fun and confidence-building as they learn to improve their balance, interact with their fellow classmates, and leave with an improved sense of calmness.
Avid athletes looking to cultivate their biomechanics and muscular performance will find benefit in DIG’s Pilates and Movement Lab programming. As an exercise developed by Joseph R. Pilates, the Pilates modality helps to build and maintain strong, lean muscle. Other benefits are improved posture, circulation, respiratory health (supplying more oxygen to the lungs), digestion, and mindfulness. DIG Movement Lab addresses multiple areas of the body, from warm-up to weightlifting, cardio, stretching, and cool down. A complement to all forms of vigorous and strenuous exercise, Movement Lab teaches students how to use equipment properly, improve their form, and build lifelong healthy habits that reduce the risk of injury.
Drop-in rates at DIG Yoga are $22 ($16 for students and seniors). Month-to-month unlimited memberships range in price from $89-135. Plenty of parking is available in the rear of the studio.
