NAMASTE

very near yoga studio

Modern day lifestyles create a lot of wear and tear on the mind and on the body. Our classes are designed to teach the average adult how to cope.

In all of our classes, RESTORATIVE YOGA is discussed and demonstrated as a TOOL for gaining ground on:

1. Refreshing the physical and mental fatigue during the regular workday
2. How to better manage sleep deprivation and insomnia
3. Identifying which yoga poses specifically address chronic ailments such as the onset of osteoarthritis, hypertension, cardiopulmonary diseases, glucose metabolism, interrupted sleep cycles, etc.

"The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in."


-Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar

Studio Information

Very Near Yoga Studio classes are held in a quiet, intimate space. Classes are no larger than 8 students. Class levels are mixed, props are provided to assist students in developing strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance. You can, therefore, develop at your own pace. All classes include 15 - 20 minutes of relaxation to foster the art of meditation.

What is Yoga?

Yoga takes the individual student step-by-step to understand the technique of coming alive to one's own balance, strength, and flexibility.

Life is rushed and some yoga classes are taught in a fast-paced, rushed manner that does not contribute to learning on a deep level. Yoga is a slow, steady learning process that extends your brain from the bottom of your foot to the top of your head. This takes time!

The use of props, for instance, including blocks and belts to help you stretch when you "just can't reach that far"; bolsters and blankets used to gradually open the back and hips that have become "too stiff to bend that way"; chair, walls and floor to assist the spine in extension eventually will allow all of you who are new to yoga to use it as "the golden key which unlocks the door to peace, tranquility and joy".
