The practice of Hatha yoga has the goal of aligning the body and spirit through physical exercises (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), relaxation and meditation. We use the breath to guide us in the postures and increase the body's internal heat thus aiding in it's detoxification, all while exploring the balance between effort and relaxation. These classes are ideal for relaxation, strengthening of the body, and calming the mind.

Antonée Lua, a native of Los Angeles, began her formal dance training at the age of three studying ballet with the renowned Olga Fricker for six years. Eventually she added tap, hip-hop, and freestyle as well as traditional African dance and mix of dances of the African diaspora. It was love of movement that led Lua to her first yoga class in 1994, the euphoria that comes from an awesome asana (yoga postures), and meditation practice.
