For yoga to be a catalyst for transformation, find a class that fits your current capacity and yet challenges you to grow.
You are invited to drop-in on any class or to try it out. Use modifications for postures until your body and practice develop.
All our classes offer classic breathing and mindfulness techniques which help focus and refine your concentration.
Focus or dhristi: Keep your gaze steady and your attention will remain here.
Press down through the feet, feel grounded and stable and reflect all that energy into lift.
Breathe all the way in and all the way out, through the nose and with sound to feel calm and unhurried.
Use the bandhas to help unlock the energy of the pose. Feel stronger and go deeper without strain.
