Welcome into the realm of Movement Therapy and Mindfulness!
Balance Within Yoga and Wellness mission is to find your inner balance. Through using movement therapy and yoga, students discover techniques to release stress and realign the body and mind. Yoga as a 6,000 year old science,can be used as a therapeutic modality to treat physical, mental and spiritual ailments. Trained under the lineage of Integral Yoga, the philosophy of the studio can be described by Sri Swami Satchidananda below:
“The goal of Integral Yoga, and the birthright of every individual, is to realize the spiritual unity behind all the diversities in the entire creation and to live harmoniously as members of one universal family. This goal is achieved by maintaining our natural condition of a body of optimum health and strength, senses under total control, a mind well-disciplined, clear and calm, an intellect as sharp as a razor, a will as strong and pliable as steel, a heart full of unconditional love and compassion, an ego as pure as a crystal, and a life filled with Supreme Peace and Joy.”
Each class offers focus on alignment in the postures, the practice of the expansion of the breath, mental health clarity and relaxation techniques. Balance Within Yoga and Wellness teaches a multitude of yoga styles that branch from Hatha yoga. It is a unique eclectic experience where you can learn the power of Ashtanga yoga, the flow and fluidness of Vinyasa yoga, the alignment and structure of Iyengar yoga, the creativity of Jivamukti yoga, the holistic healing of Integral yoga, the expansion of the heart and breath in OM Yoga, the support of chair yoga and the continuous hold of the posture in Yin Yoga. The end result is an increased sense of calm, well being and Balance Within!
