Focus

  • Yoga and Ayurveda are two “sister” practices that originated in India thousands of years ago. Explored together, these complementary practices can offer us transformative tools that foster greater health and vitality.
  • Integrating principles of Ayurveda into your asana practice can create a deeper, richer experience on the mat that you can take with you off the mat as well.

Integrative Wellness

It offers a body of wisdom to help people stay vital while realizing their full human potential that is achieved through awakening the powers of self-healing within us.
