Naked Classes - Our naked classes are not erotic or sexual in any sense. We simply shed our clothes to further let go of the ego that the barrier of clothes can create.Though people usually equate being naked with sex, we strive to create a non-sexual experience in which men can practice yoga and celebrate their bodies. It is an experience that builds self confidence.
Kripalu - In Kripalu Yoga, posture, breath, inward focusing, concentration and meditation are practiced simultaneously in order to free the static mind and allow the body and breath to move freely for optimal mental and physical health.
Ashtanga - Ashtanga Yoga is the practice and observance of the eight limbs of yoga as described in the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali: abstention and observances of ethical guidelines, postures, breathing exercises, inward focus, concentration, meditation, and transcendental consciousness. Each step is practiced separately according to its own discipline. Ashtanga Yoga also refers to an intense asana program built to focus the mind over the body and breath.
Viniyoga - Viniyoga is an ancient Sanskrit term that implies differentiation, adaptation, and appropriate application. The Viniyoga style is directly inspired by the teachings of T.K.V. Desikachar and T. Krishnamacharya and refers to a gentle approach to Yoga that adapts the various means and methods
of practice to the unique condition, needs and interests of each
individual - giving each practitioner the tools to individualize and
actualize the process of self-discovery and personal transformation.
Asana - Asana literally means 'seat'. In the west, it has taken on the meaning of a physical posture. Through asana, the body, breath and mind come together synergistically to heal and relax. Organs are cleansed. Muscles and tendons are relaxed, stretched and strengthened, and the mind becomes one with the breath. The mind becomes focused and still. Asana strengthens our resolve to accept the daily challenges of life and to move through them with grace and balance.
Pranayama - Pranayama is the art of breath control. For many of us, our breathing isn't nearly as full and deep as it can be. When we practice two-part breathing with controlled retention and release, our mind becomes clear and the body invigorated.
Pratyahara - Pratyahara is peace of mind. Control of the senses occurs when the breath corresponds with the movements of the body. Stillness of the mind allows the self to relax and experience a transcending calmness.
