What is yoga?
Yoga is an mind/body practice from within. Its meaning, to yoke or bind, is at the root of one’s understanding and is defined as union, the experience of wholeness of body, mind and spirit. It outlines eight limbs of yoga: the yamas (restraints), niyamas (observances), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), dharana (concentration), dhyani (meditation), and samadhi (enlightenment).
Most people practicing yoga in the United States are engaged in the third limb, asana, which is a program of physical postures designed to purify the body and provide the physical strength and stamina required for long periods of meditation.
How often should I practice?
Learning to develop a daily practice is ideal, although if you can only practice once a week, that’s ok too- progress at your own pace.
I’m not flexible. Can I do yoga?
Yes! Come as you are. Flexibility is required only for your mind; we will work on your body. Yoga meets you where you are, embrace the process- practice equals progression. Ultimately, learn to listen to your body in your yoga postures in order to discover new levels without strain, struggle, or ego.
What are the benefits of a yoga practice?
Yoga is one of the world’s most holistic forms of spiritual, physical and mental self-development. Some of the earliest, most common benefits are reduced stress and anxiety, overall physical health and well-being, increased strength and flexibility, stronger immune and glandular function, balanced blood pressure, and peace of mind.
What should I wear to yoga and what should I bring?
Wear comfortable exercise clothing and bare feet. Please do not wear perfume or cologne. Yoga mats, a yoga block, and complimentary bottled water are provided.
