Immerse in gentle Yoga asanas and their unique preparatory movements.

The Essence that will be spoken of here, could be viewed as an unchanging quality that is eternally present, regardless of the “style” of yoga one practices. When we practice those enduring qualities, we are aligning our mind and body with that which is eternal in its very essence. Whether one practices Flow, Ashtanga, Yin, Iyengar, etcetera… specific essential fundamentals are present in and form the foundation for all the asanas. With this perspective, all levels of experience can potentially benefit from this exploration.

We will also experience and understand how each asana contains its counterpose within. This principle is reflected in the term “Hatha”; the Ha (solar/luminous /heating) and the Tha (lunar/dark/cooling) qualities of the asanas, will be practiced with the intention of drawing together these apparent polar opposites, that are a natural part of the whole of life.

These classes will be gentle yet physical, and emphasize a refinement of the mindful attitude of non-striving. Our prime emphasis is breathing with awareness.
The three classes are ideally experienced sequentially, yet can also stand-alone.

Sanatana Dharma (The Eternal Natural Way) denotes that which always is,

that which has neither beginning nor end, that which is eternal in its very essence.” ~Dharma Central
