Our Guiding Principles

Our asana (pose) training focus is guided by the principle that we should adapt the poses to our bodies, in all their glorious shapes & sizes, not our bodies to fit the poses. It's not how far we can bend or twist into a pose, or how we look in a pose, or how we compare to others in a pose, rather it is how we feel in a pose. Often the gentle and more attainable version of a pose, and the more comfortable we are, the more beneficial it is for our bodies. Our use of props throughout the practice, the offering of modifications/options, and an emphasis on safe, body positive movement, ensures a well rounded practice for all.

From a philosophical perspective, we believe the yamas/niyamas and other influencing principles, ethical commitments, codes of conduct, etc. within the realm of yoga allow for interpretation and individuality.  At the same time, they are a reflection of an overall purpose, intention and community. Our programs bring attention to knowledge and encourage further thought and consideration. We leave the direction to the student.
