We all begin practicing Yoga, for different reasons. These classes are designed to help you rediscover your own body and ignite your potential. The focus is primarily on functional, breath-centric movement, proper alignment and adapted asanas and breathing tecniques. These classes are appropriate, even if you have unique injuries.
After you’re comfortable with the basics, you can move into a stronger class. These courses are designed to help you develop and refine strength, endurance, balance and flexibility.
These classes are even more challenging. We now incorporate complex poses with specific breath techniques, or even sound (chanting) and placement of attention (dharana/dhyanam). These classes increase your ability to stay present and alert for longer periods of time, as well as refine your physiological function.
