Why Yoga …

There are many definitions and explanations of yoga. Perhaps you’ve heard that the Sanskrit word “yoga” means “to yoke together, to unite”. Or perhaps you’ve heard that yoga is a series of poses that can make you stronger and more flexible. Or maybe you’ve heard that yoga is about finding a zen state of mind. Yoga is all that and much, much more.

At its heart, yoga is a powerful system of self-directed self-transformation. It is a system that can be followed by any person at any time regardless of background. There are no prerequisites to beginning a study of yoga. You don’t have to begin with a fit body because yoga can make you physically fit, strong, and flexible. You don’t have to begin with a clear mind because yoga can clear your mind allowing you experience the bliss of stillness. You don’t have to be in touch with your spirit because yoga will help you firmly establish that connection. You don’t have to have a goal in mind before you explore yoga. You can study yoga because you are simply curious. You can study so that you become firmly established in your own personal practice. Or you can study so that you can teach others the practice of yoga. Goals or not, through regular yoga practice you will transform your life. You will cleanse and harmonize your body, mind, and spirit allowing you to find your own unique inner light.

Why Surya Yoga…

Surya Yoga is staffed by top level, experienced teachers who practice and teach yoga everyday. Surya Yoga  continue to learn and deepen their practice through continuing education workshops with the world’s most recognized and greatest Yoga teachers. Recent workshops of the past year that our staff has participated in include: Tim Miller, Richard Freeman, Kino McGregor, Tim Feldman, Krista Shirley, David Miliotis, Mary Jo Mulligan, Annie Pace and many more. At Surya Yoga, we continually seek-out and work with the world’s best to bring the best back to you.

Thank you for choosing Surya Yoga, we look forward to helping you uncover your most authentic and best-self through the study and practice of Yoga. Namaste.
