what is yoga :: class prep :: resources :: instructor :: schedule :: main

Namaste. From its origins over 5,000 years ago, yoga has been used as a practice to gain enlightenment. And although there are now many forms of yoga, one quality still seems consistent: our need to connect with our hearts to something more than just our physical bodies.

In learning to practice the restraints (yamas) and observances (niyamas), postures, breath control, withdrawal of the senses, focus, meditation and integration, we begin to discover a life of vibrant fullness in ourselves and our surroundings. Receiving the benefits of yoga requires a sincere commitment to a daily practice of opening your heart for whatever comes up in the present moment. You become the artist of your life, creating an expression of beauty.  -Monica Paredes

"Do not fight the dark, just turn on your light. Let go and breathe into the goodness that you are." -Swami Kripalu
