What is Yoga

The word yoga means "union" in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India, where yoga originated. We can think of the union occurring between the mind, body and spirit. What is commonly referred to as "yoga" is the practice of physical postures or poses. However, 
they are only one of the eight "limbs" of yoga, which include practices for mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. 

Benefits of Yoga

Physical: strength and flexibility, better posture, improved digestion and circulation, balance and health of the organs, hormonal balance, reduction of pain or discomfort, relaxation, improved immunity, increased energy, all-round fitness, over-all well being

Emotional and Mental: calmness of mind, inner peace, increased ability to focus, stress reduction, releasing of old habit patterns, 
self-acceptance, mindfulness and ability to enjoy the present moment

Spiritual: living with greater awareness, increased intuition and insight, compassion
What to expect when you come to an Inner Light Yoga class

The breath and the postures are employed as partners throughout the class in order to free the spine, strengthen and stretch the body, and calm the mind. Depending on the level of the class, and the time of day, the focus of the practice may be restorative, invigorating, or both.

Classes conclude with a focused relaxation. This allows you time to rest deeply, and to give your body the opportunity to integrate the physical experiences introduced throughout the Yoga class.

The classes at Inner Light Yoga and Wellness are infused with a spirit of exploration and discovery. Students are encouraged to practice at their own pace. The teachers challenge and support each student, taking into consideration her or his individual energy and physical abilities and limitations. 

We are open to questions, comments and requests from students both during and after class. We strive to offer a supportive and safe atmosphere for the ongoing exploration of the ancient and evolving practice of Yoga.

When you arrive at our bright, spacious studio, you will be invited to borrow any equipment that you need (yoga mat, bolster, blanket) and to find a spot in the room to lie down and relax. As you rest back you may begin to enjoy the simple pleasure of taking time for yourself as you start the process of settling into the room, and into your body.

A Yoga class typically begins with breath-work, that is, focusing on the breath, allowing the lungs to expand fully, bringing energy into the body. We then start to slow the breathing down, taking our attention inward. This is followed by gentle stretching, releasing tension from the body.

​The next portion of the class is devoted to both asana practice (the practice and experience of the postures) and pranayama (various breathing techniques).
