What is Yoga?

question 3

question 2

question 1

The word yoga means ‘to yoke’, sometimes translated as ‘to unite’, and is derived from the Sanskrit word yuj. An ancient and complex practice from India, yoga is a collection of mental, physical and spiritual practices that promote self reflection and inward exploration. The intention of yoga is to harness and still the mind, thus liberating ourselves from the bondage of suffering (dukha). 
Defined as the path of self knowledge, Yoga is a five thousand year old science which offers tools for nervous system regulation and healthful living. The Yoga Sutras outline ethics for conducting ourselves on and off the mat, such as living in the spirit of compassion (ahimsa) and truth (satya), living a life of cleanliness (sauca), as well as practicing non-stealing (asteya), non-hoarding (aparigraha) and surrender (isvara-pranidhana). 
A combination of physical postures (asana), breathwork (pranayama), meditation (dhyana) are what we typically experience in a modern yoga studio or class setting.

What are the benefits of Yoga?

question 3

question 2

question 1

My classes are designed to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, thus reducing stress hormones in the body, slowing the heart rate and lowering blood pressure. During class we intentionally practice sensory withdrawal (pratyahara), which means minimizing sensory input and focusing our attention inwardly. This can strengthen our connection to intuition and promote feelings of empowerment.

What if I am not flexible or have an injury?

question 3

question 2

question 1

Regardless of your flexibility or experience, my classes are an inclusive space for all levels and abilities. I will guide every class with your best interests at heart, and offer modifications for injuries and other physical conditions. If you have an injury or concern, please reach out to me prior to class so I can ensure you are practicing safely. 
Remember yoga is not only about physical postures (asana) - asana is only one of eight limbs in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. The path of yoga is not about accomplishing the most advanced postures, or pushing our bodies to extremes. Rather, we are learning to approach ourselves with greater compassion, instead of through the lens of comparison. Yoga is about pursuing truth and self-knowledge, with the ultimate goal of union as our motive. Therefore, regardless of your flexibility or experience, there is always a space for you in class!
