"Yoga is the journey of self, through self, to the self."
One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day. “If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place” -Eckhart Tolle
Yoga consists of much more than poses. Yoga is a mindset. This is what I tell clients and what I have learned for myself through the evolution of my personal practice.
Just as the asanas are meant to fit your body, not your body to fit the asanas, together we work to create a practice that fits you. We create a practice that allows you to journey toward your individual goal, whether it be strength, resilience, emotional relief, or a total system of conscious and skillful living.

Under the 8 Limbs of yoga there are moral codes and aims of life. Artha refers to the creation of a balanced life. Ahimsa refers to compassion and thoughtful consideration. Through practice and repetition of balance and compassion your body not only adapts to the fluidity asana, but you may find you begin to adapt your thought processes as well; Thus, becoming more flexible in your body and your mind as you journey along through your practice.
