What is Yoga?
The word yoga translates as union or to yoke. Yoga can be defined simply as anything that unites you to the present moment. 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. Continue to read to explore the styles we offer. Yoga is not a religion, but can deepen your self awareness, connecting you more to any form of spirituality. As with all people, yoga is diverse and each experience is different, to best define yoga is to practice for yourself.
