Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness Practice
Whether it’s online or in person, in your kitchen, your car, or on your yoga mat, we encourage the practice of wise action, the original definition of yoga.
Our classes are designed to offer students a safe and supportive environment in which they can explore the balance between effort and ease. In group practice you can expect to find both invigoration and relaxation. In the Iyengar tradition of therapeutic yoga we aim to help students find the most efficient alignment in postures to allow energy to move freely through the body. We draw on our fervent interest in and knowledge of anatomy and physiology as well as our own experiences with injury and rehabilitation to translate teachings in ways that are accessible to all students.
Traditional postures are used in classes to explore the body’s memories and fears, joys and strengths. Insight meditation is taught as a way to discern between action and reaction, thought, expectation, need and want. Through thoughtful observation practitioners gain power to focus their energy more productively and with more ease.
Classes are offered by donation at the G STREET STUDIO in Anchorage, Alaska and at retreat centers around the world. We also have video, audio and PDF downloads available here on the site and full courses coming soon! Visit the calendar and links to get more information. Registration may be required.
