Vinyasa and Level 2 or 3 classes are NOT appropriate for anyone with less than 1 year of a consistent yoga practice on the mat. It is unsafe for the student and because we try to make an honest effort to be present for each and every student, it can make it difficult for the teacher to facilitate the class safely if there is a student in a class beyond their ability and understanding.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Each class in our studio is unique in that each teacher brings their own voice, experience and personality to their classes. We do have a core commitment to the tradition of the practice of Yoga on the mat in that classes begin with a quiet centering and Pranayama (a breathing practice) This may mean practicing a specific technique or practicing Omkara where you take a complete inhalation and on the exhalation chant. This is done 3 times. Feel free to just listen or to join us. Every class ends with Savasana (relaxation), a guided meditation and Omkara. Following the three rounds of Om, the palms can be placed together at the heart, saying, that is “I bow to the Light within, ” or Jaya Guru Devi, meaning “Victory to health, knowledge and happiness” or Jaya Guru Datta, to say “Victory to knowledge.”
There are some teachers that offer as part of the practice to connect students with the heart, the breath and each other. Again, feel free to join in or just to listen.Where do I park?
