The physical postures of yoga, known as asana, are powerful and centering, creating many benefits to those who practice regularly in both mind and body. But did you know they are only 1/8th of the story? There are many more tools available that offer profound results to those who wish to learn them. Come experience and deepen your understanding of the other 7 limbs of yoga through our new extended practices!
Class will involve our typical 75 minutes of asana, followed by 45 minutes of pranayama (breath work), mantra practice, and prompts for self-reflection and meditation. Additionally, excerpts from the yoga sutras, an ancient text that contains mystical and practical wisdom on yoga's 8 limbs, may be incorporated to deepen self-reflection and intention for practice. This class offers the opportunity to go beyond asana and launch oneself into a deeper relationship with the body, breath, mind, and the higher self.
