What is Yoga?

Yoga asana or yoga poses and meditation is a practice for longevity of optimal health for body, mind and spirit, and can include various traditions and styles.

As with all people, yoga is diverse and each experience is different, to best define yoga is to practice for yourself.
BEGINNERS & GENTLE YOGA & YIN YOGA
Beginners Yoga classes are suitable for those new to yoga and will provide instruction and modifications of foundational poses and sequences at a pace that is inviting.
Gentle Yoga classes emphasize rest and relaxation for students looking to alleviate stress and fatigue and are also suitable for beginners.
Yin Yoga is a more passive practice of yoga that involves variations of seated and supine poses that are held 1-5 minutes which helps to access deeper levels of connective tissue. Yin Yoga emphasis and benefit is on mobility and flexibility of the joints.
Ayurveda can be translated as the science of life, and is the sister science to yoga, a science based on the five elements. The integration of ayurveda into our yoga practice deepens our self study and self awareness. Ayurveda offers an individualized, and therapeutic approach to health, vitality and joy. It is based upon the tenant that we do not mold ourselves to fit the practice but rather the yoga practice should be unique to who we are and what we need in order to support our health.
HATHA & HATHA FLOW
Hatha classes can include hatha and hatha flow yoga. Traditional hatha yoga is an alignment focused practice, and hatha flow yoga is alignment focused with simple transitions from pose to pose.
