The journey of the self, through the self, to the self.

What is Yoga?

Yoga for Mind, Body, and Spirit

Yoga is more than just physical postures; it is a holistic approach to life that encompasses physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. 

Originating in ancient India, the word “yoga” is derived from the Sanskrit word “yuj,” meaning to unite. Yoga seeks to unite the individual with the universal, creating a sense of balance, 
peace, and connection.

Simple Yoga Poses



Tree Pose

Tree pose is a wonderful pose that teaches balance while toning the muscles of the legs.

This elegant pose is not as easy as it looks, but over time it builds tremendous inner and outer strength and a great feeling of accomplishment as you learn to balance on one leg.


Standing Forward Bend

The pose is very good for stretching many muscles of the body, including the hamstring, thigh and back. On top of that, this pose helps to stimulates the digestive system. 

Trikonasana / Utthita Trikonasana

Triangle Pose

While this pose can be challenging for those with tight muscles, it will help promote balance, stretch the hamstrings and inner thighs, and create a feeling of expansion in the body.
