We think yoga is, in essence, a way of living. The practice, principles and philosophies of yoga apply to many aspects of our lives beyond the yoga mat. Through asana (physical postures) and pranayama (breath work), we can begin to tap into subtle levels of sensation and energy. We come to better understand our bodies and more importantly, our feelings. We believe the right approach is not to force our bodies into certain postures, but instead to feel free to have fun while learning about ourselves. We believe in a yoga practice that is inclusive, fluid and organic. We offer yoga classes in different styles to help students find their own path of practice.
This class emphasizes moving the body in coordination with our breath. By doing the carefully sequenced flow of poses, Vinyasa flow helps to increase flexibility and build upper body strength and stamina. The class is suitable for people who are looking for a more energetic and dynamic practice. Some yoga experience is needed to benefit most from this class.
This class focuses more on the “Yin” aspect of yoga practice. Mindful and gentle stretch works on relaxing the nervous system (parasympathetic), releasing bodily tension and eliminating toxins caused by stressful modern lifestyles.
This class focuses on classic Hatha yoga poses. Students will learn to practice safely with the assistance of props such as blocks, straps and cushions. With detailed instruction given on the alignment for each pose, students are guided to pay attention to different parts of their body and the body as the whole, and to bring awareness to the connection of body and mind. It’s good for people who want to build a solid foundation for their practice.
This great morning practice boosts our energy for each new day. Special care will be given to common body complaints resulting from office work, such as poor posture, neck, back and wrist pain, and injuries due to repetitive movements. It’s a good complementary Yoga practice for people who have serious body imbalances resulting from other physical activities like distance running and training Jiu-Jitsu.
