Yoga is about living fully. It's a growing experience. It's not only about enhancing physical fitness but seeks to unify and integrate all aspects of ourselves; body, breath, mind and spirit. It's a quest to discover who we are.
When I practice yoga I feel I am on vacation. My body is on vacation from either long hours of sitting or from repetitive and habitual patterns of movement. My mind is on vacation from the lists, the opinions, the gotta-do's, and the thousands of thoughts that daily scroll through my mind. My breath settles and whole being breathes out with relief and gratitude for this time-out. And I walk away with a feeling of peace and well-being. When I work on yoga, yoga works on me. (Mayama)
Classes are primarily about movement yet with all the limbs of yoga woven with them. The eight limbs of yoga are: yama (restraints); niyama (observances); asana (postures); pranayama (control of prana, breath); pratyahara (withdrawing the mind); dharana (concentration); dhyana (meditation); and samadhi (super-consciousness). You can be as gentle and as strong as you allow yourself to be. This yoga is mindful. It is healing. It's a living yoga. What you discover on the mat you take with you into your life. It's about integration. It's about wholeness. Class are small. We instruct students where they are in their practice, whether you are a complete beginner or have been practicing yoga for many years.
