Yoga is a timeless art and science of arriving in the present moment with vivid aliveness. The practice of yoga provides us with a map to deepen our understanding of ourselves, others, and our environment.
We return to our original state, one of content, equanimity and wholeness, interconnected to all of life. Through consistent practice of yoga we may experience our life with presence ease and grace, and throughout difficulty feel well resourced to respond effectively.
