Tuesday Night Bhakti Yoga 7-9pm
Wednesday Morning Vinyasa Flow 8:30am-10am
Yoga means ‘to yoke’ or ‘to form union with’. It is through the ancient and sacred practices of breath, mantra and movement, we become more aligned with our higher self and all of creation. This is essence of self-care and in committing to these practices we help not only ourselves but all we come into contact with.
The class begins with mantra (sacred chanting), accompanied by harmonium, followed by guided pranayama (breath control), and then flows into an asana series (movement poses). We use these techniques to help center the mind, calm the emotions and bring our bodies into a state of balanced awareness.
A regular yoga practice can bring more strength and flexibility to the body and provide the joints with increased range of motion. Using circular flow and synchronizing the breath with movement activates the parasympathetic state encouraging the body to be nourished and triggers the body’s own natural healing state. When we are strong and flexible in our bodies we are strong and flexible in our life and are able to move through the inevitable challenges life brings with more grace and ease.
If you feel called, join us for morning sangha (gathering of people for spiritual practices) and enjoy the benefits of the group mind often elevating us all higher than we can achieve on our own. Lokah Samastah Sukinoh Bhavantu May All Beings Everywhere Be Happy and Free!
