Mira Yoga is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School at the 200hr Level (RYS 200).
Mira Yoga: Among other things, mira means "ocean" in Sanskrit. The ocean is a vast, mysterious and powerful element in nature, and plays an integral part in the balance of the Earth. Yoga plays just as integral a role in balancing our life as the ocean does for our earth. Thus, was the name "Mira Yoga," conceived. Mira Yoga is not a 'style' of yoga, as all yoga comes from essentially one and the same place (though referred to by many names). Mira is merely the concept for which our perspective about yoga comes from: Yoga is a powerful, vast and essential aspect of life and when approached with lightness, respect, discipline and joy, can have profound effects on our day to day life.
The word "mira" is Sanskrit for "ocean," Latin for "wonder" and "astonishing." In the Slavic languages it means "peace." In Hebrew, it is a derivative or Miriam or the female equivalent of Meir, meaning "light." In Spanish, it is the imperative for "look!"
