::: THE BENEFITS OF YOGA :::
Yoga is often said to build strength, awareness and harmony in both the mind and body. According to the American Osteopathic Association, other physical benefits of yoga include: increased flexibility, muscle strength and tone. It also improves respiration, energy and vitality, it helps maintain balanced metabolism and circulatory health.
However, aside from the physical benefits, yoga can also help manage stress levels. Yoga often incorporates meditation and breath work, these are key practices that help improve a persons overall well being.
The physical practice has countless benefits, helping condition the body, the energetic body, the mind and soul. As the student begins to dive into their practice, they often start to use such principles learned on their yoga mat in the world around them, exploring the meaning of mindfulness. Please be aware that everyone at our studio are on different parts of their journey, we ask that you please respect their choices and privacy inside and outside of their studio.
::: TERMINOLOGY :::
Here are some common terminology you might hear in class or in the studio.
OM: it signifies the essence of the ultimate reality and consciousness. It is also believed to be the vibration of the universe and represents the infinite or universal consciousness. When chanting the sound of OM at the beginning or end of a class, it creates harmony and unity among all present.
NAMASTE: Nama means bow, as means I, and te means you. Therefore, namaste literally means "I bow to you.” Namaste is usually spoken with a slight bow and hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards, thumbs close to the chest. This gesture is called Añjali Mudrā (prayer hands).
ASANA: An asana is a body posture or a pose in hatha yoga. The poses or postures vary from reclining, standing, inverting, twisting, and balancing. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali define "asana" as "a position that is steady and comfortable”. In Sanskrit just about every pose/posture has the word asana in it: TadASANA (Mountain Pose), SukASANA (Easy Pose), SavASANA (Corpse Pose), UstrASANA (Camel Pose) and so forth.
SAVASANA: Corpse Pose, the final pose in the practice of yoga. This resting pose is taken at the end of practice. The teacher will guide you into this pose, which is considered the most important pose. Here you lay on your back and relax your body allowing the practice to settle and relaxing your body and mind. Savasana can range anywhere between 5-15min depending on the length of the class.
PRANAYAMA Prana means “life force energy”, yama means “control”, therefore “Controlled Life Force Energy” or breath work. Pranayama happens when we pay attention to our breath and re-engage it with intention. Listen to the teacher, listen to the breath cues, stay present and breathe.

::: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS :::
All of our classes are designed to be all levels and have options throughout for beginners and advanced students alike. Our Monday 7:30PM class is design to help you learn yoga poses and build your practice. Always feel free to check in with your instructor before class starts, let them know where you are in your practice, ask questions, and take class at your own pace.
Please register to class via MINDBODY before coming to class. Doors are locked at all times, teachers will let you into the studio starting 15 minutes before the start of each class. Classes start on time ALWAYS, no entry or admittance after start of class, NO EXCEPTIONS. Please remove your shoes when you arrive at the studio. Please silent your cellphones or put it in DO NOT DISTURB/AIRPLANE MODE. We have a water bubbler and we do sell water and other beverages.
Dress comfortably in clothes that won’t restrict your movement, preferably something sweat-wicking, you may also bring a layer for savasana (guided relaxation and meditation at the end of class). We practice in bare feet. Bring your water bottle and a yoga mat. We recommend having your own yoga mat if your are determined about your practice, we have some spare mats at the studio which you may borrow if they are available.
Yes! We ask that you sign-up using the MINDBODY App on your smart phone. You may also sign up on your home computer by logging onto the Seeking OM. If you forgot to sign up, we will still have room for you, just let the front desk know what class you are taking.
Yoga is meant for ALL BODIES! We all have a place we start, as stiff as you may feel, know that just about everyone started at a similar place. Yoga is practice, a practice that is developed over time. The goal is not be flexible, you absolutely can if you wish, however most people come to yoga to find longevity, sustainability, mindfulness, healthy body mind and soul. After all ASANA (movement, poses, postures) is just 1 limb (part) of the 8 limbs of yoga.
No worries, this happens often in yoga! When you are twisting, bending, and stretching you might get caught off guard! Just ignore it, everyone else will. Instructors are use to it. If it's a problem on a regular basis, then consider being mindful of what you eat before class, try to avoid large meals a few hours before class.
We periodically offer Kids and Baby classes for a variety of ages. For our regular classes that are not labeled specifically for Baby/Kids/Teens, teenagers ages 16 and above may attend with a legal guardian. A person must be 18 years of age to attend a regular class by themselves.
