Yoga is an excellent way to promote balance and wellbeing on all levels. We teach both Hatha and Kundalini Yoga in private and group settings. All of our classes are well rounded and include the use of mantra, breath work, physical asana, mudras, and meditation.
Mantras are affirmations that can be used to focus the mind and influence the subconscious mind, reprograming our beliefs from those of negative ones to positive.
Breath Work balances the nervous system and builds lung capacity. Altering the breath in different ways can bring about positive changes such as balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
Physical Asanas are the postures, poses, or various positions we move the body through in yoga. They help the physical body become stronger, more flexible, and help to release toxins.
Mudras are positions of the body that have some kind of influence on the energies of the body, or your mood. A lot of mudras in yoga are done with the hands as a way to cultivate a particular quality such as balance.
Meditation is the process of focusing the mind. Meditation can be done silently or with the use of mantras, breath work, and mudras, or a combination of one or more.
The Difference Between Hatha and Kundalini Yoga
Hatha Yoga is a style of yoga that typically focuses more on physical exercises and breath control. You’ll often hear the phrase, “One breath, one movement.” Focusing on the breath brings one into the present moment, which can help increase awareness on and off the mat. In addition, the poses stimulate the lymphatic system and help remove toxins from the body. In our hatha classes, we incorporate mudras, meditation, mantra, and focused breath work so that you can have a well rounded experience.
