- Yoga is a form of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. In its purest and traditional forms, Yoga was used as a method of therapy for helping people to live a more meaningful and successful life. The Sanskrit noun yoga translates to (and is cognate with) English "yoke". It is derived from the root yuj "to attach, join, harness, yoke".
- We are all spirit soul and we are trying to attach with supreme soul, then we are said to be in yoga.
- There are 4 paths which we can acheive this: 1. Karma Yoga, 2. Jnana Yoga, 3. Dhyana Yoga and 4. Bhakti Yoga.
Please plan to arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your session whether you are planning to attend online yoga classes or at our yoga studio.
- Yes! Any information about your previous Yoga experience is always helpful for your instructor to know in leading you through the best experience possible that is designed just for you.
We recommend wearing something similar to what you would wear to the gym like comfortable, basic athletic gear. We practice barefoot to honor the sanctity of the yoga space.
We recommend three basic items to practice yoga: yoga mat, water bottle, and a towel. If you don't have a yoga mat, just let us know before your session.
We recommend that you avoid eating for at least two hours prior to attending a class. A light snack of fruit or nuts would be fine. Coming to class well hydrated is very important so be sure to drink 1 glass of lukewarm water prior to the start of class.
- First and foremost, we need to stress that we believe that yoga is for every body! We invite all levels of ability, all ages, all races, and all genders to join us for practice. For students who are new to practicing yoga or who feel they are dealing with limitations in the body, we recommend starting in our slower moving classes. All of our classes are designed to accommodate all levels and abilities, and we can design a practice suited best for your and your group.
- Our most common answer is: as often as you can. Practicing once a week can change your mind. Practicing three times a week can change your body. Practicing six times a week can change your life!
Yes, absolutely! We offer private yoga sessions which can be one-on-one or in a small group.
