Our goal is to provide the community with an inspiring and healing space where people are able to unfold themselves through the study and practice of yoga.
Yoga is as old as civilization and has been practiced for thousands of years as a gentle but powerful means of achieving strength, flexibility, stillness and balance of body and mind. Yoga is regarded as a way of life. It is not a religion. It is an ancient science that encompasses asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. Yoga comes from the Sanskrit work yuj which means “yoke” or “union”. Yoga unifies the body and the mind through the breath. It is not only about making our bodies healthy, strong and flexible; it teaches us to make OURSELVES healthy, strong and flexible. This incredible process in turn brings JOY to the heart.
“Happiness is the goal of yoga.”
- Rama, founder of the Himalayan Institute
