We believe that Home is where your Om is, so at each of our classes and courses, we devote special attention to creating comfortable environments for students to release from the distractions of day-to-day life and dive into their Yoga and meditation practice.
Our teaching style draws from various traditions and ancient wisdoms, delivered with contemporary style and translation. Focus is on the practice of yoga as an instrument to reveal a greater sense of healthy awareness, harmony and serenity. All students are welcome, beginner to advanced. Posture modifications are offered so students may find the desired level for their practice.
While distinctive and contemporary, our approach is strongly rooted in the philosophical teachings and wisdoms that have been handed down through the generations. Our programs take a comparative approach to teaching, exposing participants to a vast array of concepts, theories and traditions. In this way participants may mesh what they find relevant into yoga that is meaningful to them.
Our classes provide a safe space for participants to explore their health on many levels; physical, mental and spiritual. In a moving meditation we build strength and endurance while at the same time creating a sense of calm and quiet. Focus is on the essence of yoga which is a tool to deepen the connection with our innermost Self, and from this place of connection we experience greater unity and harmony in all things.
The Holistic Asana approach follows a guideline format which suggests a few basic principles to make a balanced and whole yoga class, including meditation, intention/mantra, pranayama (breathing exercises), and asana (yoga postures). We use whole yoga guidelines when developing Hatha, Vinyasa or Restorative classes. We can also modify the class sequences to emphasize specific postures (e.g. a back-bending or hip-opening), or create specialty classes to meet the needs of the students (Pre-Natal, Children’s Yoga, Physical Limitations, etc.)
Merging breath, balance, alignment, flexibility and strength, students will learn self-healing techniques and find depth in their practice.
