Classical Yoga refers to original yogic texts on postures, breathing techniques, and self study. This class seeks to impart the essence or fragrance of yoga as taught through the Kaivalyadhama tradition of my teacher. The overarching intent is for each individual to feel grounded and comfortable in a personal daily practice, while exploring insights from a variety of sources, such as Yoga Therapy for specific concerns, Ayurvedic lifestyle recommendations, Taoist Yoga, meditation and stress reduction techniques.
May our learning be ever fresh. -Upanishads
Success (yoga, union, integration) comes through regular practice, with respect, over a long period of time. -Yoga Sutra I:14
