THE 5 POINTS OF YOGA

PROPER EXERCISE | BREATHING | DIET | RELAXATION | MEDITATION

 

Ashtanga Yoga: Ashtanga Yoga practices sequential asana (yogic postures) linked by breath and intention. Ashtanga Yoga is a rigorous style of Hatha Yoga comprised of a set  sequence of poses. It builds inner heat, suppleness and a meditative state of mind through the rhythmic flow that is established with pranayama and asana. 

 

Vinyasa Yoga: An outgrowth of Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga expands on set sequencing. It is a vigorous rhythmic flow guided by breath, integrating alignment, strength, balance, flexibility, and deep awareness.

 

Anusara Yoga: To be in the flow, flowing with Grace, to go with the flow of Divine Love, to follow your heart. Anusara Yoga is heart-oriented. It is a unique integration of Hatha Yoga that blends principles of biomechanics and heart opening for the inner and outer body. Based upon Universal Alignment Principles, it energetically balances the systems of the body toward optimal health.

 

NAAM Yoga: NAAM Yoga is a unique merging and refining of the world's most powerful esoteric traditions. It is a divine science and art that merges the crowning yoga practices of the East with the unparalleled esoteric traditions of the West. The result is the most powerful distillation of this wisdom, it is the return to One. The cardiac path, straight to the heart and is the path of the sun, turning negativity into positivity, bringing self-awareness which facilitates self-healing. It's foundation is Universal Wisdom and Kundalini Yoga.

"Naam Yoga causes the entire mechanism of the body to work in a healing rhythm, so that the beat of the pulse, the heart, the head, the circulation of the blood, and intimations of hunger and thirst, all experience a harmonious rhythm"
~Joseph Michael Levry~
