 What is my pathway to health?

How do I access tranquility during tumultuous times?

How do I make the most of this precious life?

You may have heard that yoga will help you feel better
in your body. This is true! But it's also just the beginning.

Simple, enjoyable movement brings your body into balance.
Pain and tension begin to dissipate.
You feel more alive and awake, prepared to
act with confidence and clarity.

It's common to feel too busy or out of shape to join a class -
yet this is precisely why it's beneficial to come!

Yoga is a priceless investment in your long-term happiness.
You leave each class feeling more at ease in your body,
less bothered by stress, and more present to joy.

Here you will be welcomed into a community that
accepts you and supports your desire to grow.
Our highly-trained teachers will safely challenge and inspire you.

This humble studio can be your urban sanctuary -
the place you come to remember who you are
and who you want to become.

Fall Theme: Moon Practices

ajna with moon

After a summer of experiential anatomy, this fall we will pursue moon sadhana - practices that explore and cultivate the mind.  (Learn more about our year-long syllabus here.)  Both moon and mind are constantly changing, and both “reflect” other energies.  We will use our asana and breathing to engender states of stability and calm, which are essential for progress in yoga.  In other words, we will turn our attention from physical to mental alignment. 

We will also consider different models of the mind, both Indian and Western.  We will meditate more regularly and develop a repertoire of foundational meditations.  By winter, we will be ready to move into the realms of prana, the animating intelligence of life.

Some recommended reading for this fall:

Yoga and Psychotherapy: The Evolution of Consciousness
by Swami Rama et al

Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom
by Rick Hanson

The Self Comes to Mind: Constructing the Conscious Brain
