What is Yoga?
From the outside, it may seem like yoga is about doing fancy poses, but the real benefits of yoga are internal. Yoga in Sanskrit means “yoke” or “bring together” or linking breath and movement to calm the mind. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali define yoga as: “Yogas chitta vritti nirodha” – which means “yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind“.

Private Yoga Lessons
Does the idea of practicing in a studio make you break out in a cold sweat? Do you prefer individualized instruction without feeling rushed? Maybe you have questions about specific postures or want to get better at inversions? Perhaps you’re recovering from an injury and you want some ideas for how to practice at home or in a studio? Private yoga lessons are perfect for deepening your learning and building strength and stamina.
No matter what age or stage your body is, informed yogis can practice sustainably, safely, and creatively well into their 90s and beyond.
