Art of Yoga

I am Art - Art of Yoga 
A dance between the breath, body and mind, an adventure of self discovery and awareness.  Art of Yoga is a unique balanced practice with precise instruction, alignment with breath and fluid movement.  Postures are skillfully sequenced with a playful approach to unlock the full energetic potential of asana.

The practice of yoga brings us profoundly into ourselves through the body.  There is an alchemy that happens by practicing yoga asana, and changes occur for us on social, physical,
and psycho-spiritual levels. Ultimately, yoga helps us refine our energy:
the energy of action, of thought, of breath and of love.

Shri as beauty is generative unto itself.
 It just keeps creating more beauty.

Align yourself with grace
Soften your boundaries
Open your heart and inner body
Surrender to what you know to be true

“There’s something really unique about the advanced postures.  Not so much in the beauty of them or the fanciness of them, cuz at some point it just becomes gymnastics.  There’s something really beautiful about the advanced postures in the sense that they remind us that we’re human.  At some point we all realize that we have limitations.  And we work hard to get stronger, to get more flexible, to get more open…but we realize that even as we work really hard to start to fine tune or physical skills, our mental skills, spiritual skills-or whatever it is, that we reach these points of just realizing that we’re human.  So whether you can put your foot behind your head or stand on one hand is really insignificant.  But we use this advanced practice to test our ability to stay really present and stay really committed to this internal practice within ourselves.  And the ability to step into the fire, whatever that means for you, your fire might be pigeon pose,
it might be foot behind the head, 
 to step into that and watch what happens.”
