You don’t have to know your downward dog from your plow pose to enjoy classes at the Yoga Center of Columbia. For that matter, you don’t have to be capable of doing most yoga poses.

 

The Columbia studio offers yoga classes for just about all ages and abilities — including classes for amputees and people in wheelchairs. “We are proud of offering yoga for everyone,” says owner Kathy Donnelly, who started at the Yoga Center as a teacher in 2000.

 

Longevity is another key to her studio’s success, Donnelly says. She noted that the Yoga Center has been open since 1992 and quipped, “You couldn’t even find a yoga mat then.”
