NOW (atha) things are going to be different, it is with sincere effort that we make this declaration.
This Sutra reminds us that YOGA IS our nature. To get back to our nature, we need to undo some things, like release holding onto bad habits, and put forth effort into creating new habits that will bring us closer to our goal
which is a return to our essence.
Being uncomfortable is part of this process.
Discipline is required for any change to occur and we need to remind ourselves of this.
If we really wish to make things better, to feel better in our body, to be happier, to have more joyful and fulfilling relationships, we need to put forth the effort.
Consistent practice is key.
Just as a tree needs to establish a firm root system, we need a solid foundation to build upon. We build this through: Satsang (being with other yogis), practice (asana, pranayama, meditation, ) and the ethical precepts of the yamas and niyamas.
For those who wish to go deep. Please join us for LIFE OS Fall. Begins Sept. 20.

Now this is yoga
as I have perceived it in the natural world.
We are happy you found us!
Welcome to the studio. We have been in Berkley since 2006 and are delighted to have you join our community. COME PRACTICE!
We are an intimate yoga studio with a big heart, located in Downtown Berkley, MI.
Our teachings are directly from the lineage of Krishnamacharya.
All classes offer depths into the philosophy of yoga through references of
The Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali's Yoga Sutra, as well as other sacred texts.
Asana, posture practice, is the primary tool we use to explore the mind, body and spirit.
The goal: to be steady and joyful in each moment, each breath and to develop a healing relationship with the Earth.
Breath is the primary teacher.
We are made of sound + vibration.
We tune up our bodies with mantra , Sanskrit and music that is uplifting and healing.
