I’ve know Alice And her crew for a decade at least. I’ve practiced yoga for at least that long. It was Alice who launched me as a yogini and instilled a love of yoga. The Staff at MBY are professional and dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. There is no judgement only encouragement. The staff is impeccably trained in adapting a practice for you and if you have physical limitations they will show you how to modify your poses to achieve your ultimate goal. The studios ambience is so like a beautiful cocoon insulating you from whatever stresses are “Out There”. Many thanks to Alice Servivas and her terrifically talented team!

Nature; There is no category for outdoor recreation areas like beaches and hiking trails.

The Northern Neck excels at natural beauty, as do many regions like Southwest Virginia. To ignore this and have categories like massage therapy groups is rather strange. I'd like to see this annual voting event include outdoor places next time
