Our practice comes from the Yogananda Kriya yoga lineage, which is based in ancient Vedic and Tantric wisdom and techniques. Asanas (Postures) which most westerners think Yoga is, is only one limb of the 8 limbs of yoga. The type of postures we do come from Hatha and in our daily Yoga journeys we will always use techniques from at least 3 different limbs of yoga and up to 7 in one. We will always start from stillness, centering our selfs with ancient meditation/breathing techniques (Kriya / Pranayama) first before going into the postures and then through out the practice various other techniques can be used.
This approach to Yoga is much more holistic and true to the original teachings and practices. This yoga will really take your practice to the next level if you’ve only done studio yoga, no matter where your practice currently is.
Another key difference with our yoga is our strong belief in Sangha (community) as a part of yoga and its importance to living a healthy happy balanced life. Thats why students are encouraged to hang out after class, relax and connect a little to yourself, to the earth, and to others. Especially after one of these yoga journeys, you will energetically be a little more open then normal so taking sometime to relax and reflect and ground yourself further, even if just by yourself, can make a big difference before going back and hitting the streets.
