Yoga - A Practice of Transformation

Classical Yoga was first pursued as a path of transformation.  Asana (movements) and pranayama (breathing practices), were used to prepare the body and mind to enter a deeper state of meditation. They aided one in withdrawing from the physical realities (and limitations) of the world, in order to increase their connection to a higher awareness.


This is the yoga that Sita experienced when she first began to practice in 1990. Her teachers taught and practiced yoga as a lifestyle path leading to self-realization. 


The Movement and Meditation class goes back to these roots of transformation.  Explore practices designed to shift energy and find inspiration and guidance from the wisdom teachings of yoga

Yoga for Back Health

image14

FREEDOM FROM PAIN MEANS FREEDOM TO MOVE

In the United States, back pain is one of the top reasons students come to Yoga. Low back pain is particularly pervasive in our culture and can happen for  structural, mental, and/or emotional reasons.  Because there are a variety of causes of back pain, some Yoga poses are not appropriate or therapeutic for certain kinds of back pain.  In these instances, Yoga could even aggravate the problem.


In this 6-week series, participants will learn about and understand common causes of pain and explore and practice therapeutic solutions that often provide great relief when practiced safely and accurately.  


Classes will integrate several modalities of healing, including: yoga asana (movement), pressure (marma) points, essential oils, massage, mindful breathing, and meditation. 


Class size is limited to allow for individual attention. 


At the end of the 6 weeks, participants will have learned techniques and life-skills to alleviate, and/or manage common back pain. 


**IMPORTANT NOTE**

 This class addresses generalized low back pain or discomfort. If you have a diagnosed conditions or specific injury, please contact the Instructor to determine whether this group class will be appropriate for you.**
