Yoga

Yoga is an ancient and powerful system of transformation and self-realization that has enhanced millions of lives. People practice yoga for many reasons: improved flexibility or focus, strengthening or healing, weight loss, restoration or relaxation, greater connection to self and others, and an experience of inner peace, balance and well-being.

At the Center for Wellness and Integrative Medicine, we offer a variety of yoga classes to suit your personal ability, inspiration and desire. We also know that this can change from day to day. Our expert instructors ground their teaching in the lineages of Hatha Yoga, specifically the vinyasa (“flow”) and alignment styles of yoga. They pay special attention to proper breath, structural precision and movement. We offer a slow, gentle method in some classes, while others are taught in a more vigorous style.

Mysore

The Ashtanga Yoga method is built around the ‘Mysore Style’ class, so named because yoga was taught this way by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in Mysore, India, and continues to be taught this way in traditional Ashtanga Yoga schools around the world.

In Mysore Class, the student is taught a sequence of postures through one-on-one instruction. The correct movements, breathing and other aspects of the practice are learned gradually. Students are able to practice independently and at their own pace while surrounded by the energy and inspiration of other students in the room. The student learns, memorizes the sequence and thus becomes aware and invested in their progress physically, mentally, and spiritually. Developing your own sadhana (personal practice) frees you to take it with you anywhere. It is appropriate for all level of practitioners.
