Our yoga classes are designed for every level of fitness. Beginners and advanced can be in the same class and both benefit from our yoga instructors easy, relaxed style of teaching. This is not about religion or spirituality. It's about stretching and breathing and feeling at peace with your body and mind. Yoga can be performed by those of any age and condition, although not all poses should be attempted by everyone.  Yoga should be done on an empty stomach, and loose and comfortable clothing should be worn.


Yoga postures, called asanas, are designed to tone, strengthen, and align the body. These postures are performed to make the spine supple and healthy and to promote blood flow to all the organs, glands, and tissues, keeping all the bodies systems healthy. On the mental level, yoga uses breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation (dyana) to quiet, clarify, and discipine the mind. Today in American yoga is thriving, and it has become easy to find teachers and classes all over. 11 million Americans do yoga at least occasionally and 6 million Americans perform it regularly. Yoga stretches are used by physical therapists and professional sports teams. The benefits of yoga are being discovered all over. From movie stars to UCLA physician training programs, yoga is gaining popularity because it works and it's fun!


A typical hatha yoga routine consists of a sequence of poses, or asanas, and the sequence is designed to work all parts of the body, with particular emphasis on making the spine supple and healthy while increasing circulation. Hatha yoga asanas utilize three basic movements: forward bends, backward bends and twisting motions. Each asana is named for a common thing it resembles like the sun salutation, cobra, locust, plow, bow, eagle, tree and the head to knee pose, just to name a few. A pose is held for some time, depending on its level of difficulty and ones's strength and stamina. Breathing should be deep and through the nose. Mental concentration in each position is also very important. Our yoga classes run about an hour and a half. The basic positions can increase a persons strength, flexibility and sense of well-being almost immediately,   but it can take years to perfect and deepen them.
