We offer a variety of Yogic styles and custom classes including Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, Hatha, Vinyasa, Gentle Yoga, and stretching. All classes are led by certified yoga teachers.
We use sacred mantras to connect our mind with universal vibrations. Mantra meditations are the master tools for awakening the crown chakra and tuning in with the Divine. They harmonize our brainwaves, releasing old patterns and confusion, so that our brain is capable of having a divine experience. The meditation process elevates our mood, creates clarity in our mind, increases subtle sensitivity to our inner world, helps us tune out external influences and find our center, and harmonizes all parts of our being. In short, the recitation of sacred mantras creates a synchronization of all the elements and chakras, which awakens us to our wholeness and unity with the Divine. Rhythmic repetition of sacred mantras also enhances our own self-perpetuated rhythm and builds an auric field that sustains and protects us and impacts our environment. Physiologically, chanting mantras makes our body calmer and less agitated. Psychologically, it generates inner peace and a sense of well-being. Mentally, our attention increases, and our awareness expands. Mantras nurture our soul.
This class is offered as a gift for those who attend Fridays 9:30AM Kundalini Yoga and Meditation class & $10 for others.

This traditional Hatha Yoga class combines a steady balance of postures (asanas) with pranayama (controlled focused breathe). Detail will be given to each asana, achieve proper alignment, and strengthen the ability to direct the mind. Students will be guided to control the flow of prana with the use of bandhas (energy locks) located within the body. While locking in energy, students will feel a balance of steadiness and lightness within the pose. This practice unifies the center of the body and brings balance to clear any blocks in the chakras. The use of beautiful and graceful mudras (yoga of the hands) and mantras will be used as tools for self-understanding, peace, wisdom, and to clear and quiet the mind. The blend of these practices, combined with meditation, becomes transformational in a spiritual journey to gain inner peace and happiness.
Harmony & balance (A UNIQUE CLASS OF MANY TRADITIONS)
A unique class of many traditions. Class begins by getting in the flow with QiGong & Tai Chi through gentle movements. We progress to tapping for emotional freedom as well as attunement to our bodily well-being. Pranayama (breathing techniques) guide us to work within our breath to sooth, calm or energize while connecting to the Universal life-force energy that sustains us. We then move to some traditional Yoga stretching asanas, and Shavasana (restorative, deep relaxation) to renew and unite mind, body and spirit within.
After relaxation we do chanting to uplift and elevate our vibrations while lighting up all the pathways of the brain. We end class with meditation, using different affirmations and guiding thoughts and principles, to allow the spirit to connect to the divine threads/attributes in the Universe while discovering and realizing our source of deep inner joy. Om peace.
