wonderfully put together, very informative, and thought provoking…

I personally always enjoy history [of Ayurveda] but designation and eating for my dosha have been most interesting to me. Slowly [have been] introducing new spices and foods, trying to use the neti pot, and began using sesame oil on my skin. Every Tuesday, we learned more and laughed with others as we shared experiences.  [The last session of an Ayurvedic meal and movie] was very yummy and filling. Want to watch the whole movie now!

enjoyed it very much…gave me a nice foundation to explore.

Interesting to see how doshas fit in [to daily life]. Drinking tea, using spices added to skin care products, rising early to take of my needs, and feeling better [are things I enjoyed learning]. Everyone can benefit from self-care and being in balance and will have more to give to others. Really enjoyed the whole package: learning the history [of Ayurveda], the seasons, about sleeping too late, how not enough sleep affects us, and how to balance.

very informative and felt that what was natural to me was validated…

Dosha designation made me feel like there more people like me out there and this it's ok.  Daily maintenance was so helpful in starting to find a daily routine to help me function better and be healthier. My new doshic tea helps me relax!  I try and meditate daily and want to do sun & moon salutations. The series taught me what to do. [The last meal and movie] was very yummy and enjoyable! Being fed in a relaxing space was so nice.

knowing how to eat according to my dosha is most appreciated…

I appreciate all the knowledge I gained in this series, but most of all knowing how to eat according to my dosha was most appreciated. That is controllable and has a direct effect on me and how I feel. --L.C.

My goal is to reach out and teach others how Yoga can awaken and transform body, mind, and spirit: on and off the mat.

Awaken, grow, illuminate. That is our shared goal.

Current classes

pranalahThis 75-minute class is suitable for those with little to advanced Yoga experience. Yoga Pranala, in the Hatha tradition, includes asanas (poses), meditation, energy  movements, and pranayama (controlled breathing).  In Yoga Pranala, we are rooted to the earth and connected with the breath as a means of concentration and mindfulness throughout the practice.

pranalahThis 90-minute class is Yoga Pranala with the restful Yoga Nidra practice at the end of class.  Done lying in the resting pose of Savasana, Yoga Nidra is a systematic practice of bringing the practitioner to a deep state of relaxation, with 20-minutes of Yoga Nidra being equivalent to 2 1/2 hours of restful sleep.  This is considered the dessert of any Yoga practice as it  brings about a relaxation that most people are not able to achieve even through sleep.  These classes are usually done in the 7pm time slot to allow for maximum relaxation. Be sure to bring your eye pillow for the Yoga Nidra part for blissful relaxation!

relaxation-frontThis 90-minute class will relax you and wash away stress from your day. Suitable for all levels, this Restorative Yoga class will bring ultimate relaxation as we get into supported poses on the mat using blankets and bolsters. This is an especially appropriate class for those who suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis as it is gentle. Be sure to arrive no less than 15-minutes early to get set up and bring your eye pillow to class for ultimate relaxation (we also sell some at the studio).

This 75-minute slow-paced class is composed of poses held up to 5 minutes. Beginning with the grounding practice of pranayama (controlled breathing), we set the pace breathwise for a class of poses that are held low and closer to the mat. These poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—so as to increase flexibility and circulation.

This practice is very meditative and helps the practitioner to experience a deep and fulfilling practice. However, don’t be fooled into thinking it won’t do much: this class is usually the equivalent of 2-3 regular Yoga Pranala classes bundled into one.
