In classes we will focus on the science behind the relationships between the body, the mind, and their bridges. We will be most observant of the flow of prāṇa – how and where it moves and does not move in posture and how it relates – or does not – with consciousness. Using the paradigms of Ha-ṭha Yoga and Āyurveda we will explore our capacity to be both strong and flexible, moving and still, Ha and Ṭha, and of course, migrate in the direction of steady appreciation and wholistic awareness.
What is a Yogavāhi?
A yogavāhi is any substance that catalyzes the potency with whatever it engages. Though it can stimulate change, the ability to transform is inherent in the subjects it supports.
Why this name?
At Yogavāhi Āyurveda & Yoga we believe that health is inherent to each of us. Yes, sometimes it requires refining through experience, food, lifestyle, and herbals adjustments, but it is there for us all. Our goal is to light the spark to promote change in you.
