Sat Yam Yoga = Union with Truth
We further elaborate this to mean
"the embodiment of one's higher nature"

Therapeutic Yoga
Considering each individual's state of being, with acknowledgement that each person has a completely different history up until this moment. So even if they are presenting with the same condition as the next person, their practice may look entirely different.

Ayurveda = Science of Life
Aurveda is widely known as a system for diagnosing and treating health conditions, yet it is also a formula for balance and wellness within daily life.

Anatomy of Yoga
Perceiving the yogi from the inside out; skeleton, muscles, organs, nervous system, meridians,

Yoga of Conscious Touch
To touch one another with yogic consciousness and healing potency; full being presence, no pause no hurry, firm yet

Mantra, Kirtan, & Sound Meditation
The power of conscious sound to interpenetrate the body and mind, to take the mind inward, to invoke heightened consciousness, and to open the soul's heart.
