First priority is safety. Getting hurt in yoga class is 99% avoidable. We instruct everyone to never force or struggle, the very second forcing or struggle begins you are no longer doing yoga.
You will be skillfully guided through a series of yoga poses (asana) that are designed to create flexibility and strength and in addition instruction of yoga philosophy is designed to refresh your mind as well. You should leave class feeling refreshed both physically and mentally.
The style of yoga may be vinyasa flow, Iyengar, yin or a little of all. At the end of class students will feel lighter and refreshed.
In addition to the huge benefits of Hatha (pronounced hatta) yoga as exercise, we incorporate the philosophical teachings of Raja yoga, which, in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, espouses stress-relieving techniques that encourage qualities like peace of mind, serenity, empathy, and compassion to emerge—all through the simple practice of mindful meditation.
For those who love exercise, we bring the added dimension of Raja yoga philosophy, while for those who love yoga philosophy, we bring the added dimension of encouraging a complimentary physical practice.
