Ashtanga Vinyasa YOGA

What is YOGA?

Yoga is a Sanskrit word. It is the same as the English word "yoke". The idea is for all of the components of a person-- body, mind, emotions, energy, spirit--to work together in a balanced, harmonious way. It is a life-long study and practice. Each person is a unique combination; Yoga teaches to treat oneself with compassion and respect AND to treat others with compassion and respect. This fits with, Holding Space Practice's mission (our sister site) to honor individual and hold space for self and others without judgment.
