Our Healing Yoga Style

Private Yoga Lesson Long Beach

There are some distinguishing characteristics to the Integral Style of Hatha Yoga that is taught in our yoga teacher training course.

integral yoga book hatha yoga cover

* yoga should be energizing and help you to feel relaxed and at ease for the day, not exhausted

* we practice classical postures that have specific benefits and are helpful for meditation

* this practice teaches you how to sit still and train the mind to control the body

* by longer held postures, you have time to notice the patterns in the mind

* anybody can do these poses

* practicing slower at times can allow for the internal feelings to be noticed thus deeper changes occur

* awareness of body brings about changes in awareness of eating habits and thus helps in weight loss or management

* intelligent sequences of poses

* emphasis is on therapeutics, maintenance and the internal physiology of organs and body systems (not just muscles and ligaments)

* we teach breathing exercises and meditation from day 1

* no overuse of same muscles groups

* breathing is always regulated, deep and appreciated  in the practice

* we use “OM” and other sound healing techniques to work on the mind/body
