This class is taught in the style of Ashaya Yoga®, an alignment-based Hatha yoga developed by Todd Norian. This class is suitable for beginners and anyone wishing for a basic level yoga practice. Each class includes warm ups, breath work, sun salutations, standing poses, a series toward a pinnacle or “challenge” pose, cool down, and Savasana. Modifications and variations are given, props are provided.
Ashaya (AH-shy-ah), a Sanskrit word that means, “abode of the heart”, blends precise, biomechanical alignment techniques with empowering and spiritually uplifting heart virtues that support a total awakening and harmony of body, mind, and spirit. This transformational yoga is more than just a “yoga workout”. In addition to building strength, balance, flexibility, and healing chronic pain, you leave each class calm, focused, and inspired to live the best version of yourself. When you are happy, everyone becomes happier around you. Change yourself. Change the world.
