-Meditation & Pranayama
Each morning starts with meditation, pranayama (breathing), kriyas (cleansing techniques) and bandhas (body locks) to open your energy channels, purify, balance and revitalize the body and mind. Ancient yoga revolves around meditation as a means to liberate oneself the suffering of ignorance, to see clearly the ultimate reality and attain enlightenment or union with the divine. Without meditation as your guiding light you are just stretching on a piece of rubber.
Hatha is the root of all modern yoga and involves holding traditional poses for longer periods of time in order to achieve mindful body awareness and focus as well as correct alignment. Ha-tha means sun and moon and is meant to be a perfect balance of physical, mental and energetic elements to create a holistic practice. Hatha also helps to build the requisite strength and flexibility required for more challenging styles such as vinyasa and ashtanga. 2-3x week.
Take your hatha foundation to the next level with vinyasa yoga, which involves linking together variations of traditional asanas and sun salutations with breathe and movement to create graceful sequences with options for advanced development.

Yoga nidra offers the serene bliss of complete relaxation as you are guided on an internal journey, bringing awareness and love to each part of your body.

These classes provide heavenly relief to balance the long hours of physical practice and study. 1-2x each.
