Classes are paced, systematic and provide a foundation for understanding the many branches of yoga. In our classes the duration that you are engaged in asana varies; heat can be generated from within when practicing a dynamic asana or a flowing sequence. In some classes you may be encouraged to relax in a pose or dynamically embrace a pose for an extended period, always our classes are created to flow intelligently. Each class begins by chanting the eternal sound of OM, followed by a dharma talk, a brief physical warm up, sun salutations, infused with music, anatomy integration, structural alignment, flexibility, range of motion and graceful transitions. You will be taught how to use props and be guided in a safe and thoughtful asana class.

Classes include standing poses, back bends, forward bends, hip openers, twisting, inversions, shavasana, meditation, and mantra. Our classes are designed to join mind, body, and spirit. The temperature is balanced for safety and never over heated.  All Shiva Shanti Yoga Teachers are interested in the deep historical and philosophical study of the ancient practice of yoga.  We invite and encourage people of every background, shape, size, gender, and color to join us.  Shiva means transformation (by dissolving our old ways of thinking and being), and Shanti means peace, we happily promote unity and peace among all beings.  Shiva Shanti Yoga is committed to providing an atmosphere where the ancient texts of yoga can be taught, understood, explored, while in a safe and compassionate environment. “I believe your practice must be thoughtful, joyful, devotional, graceful, calming, challenging, enlightening and steady.” Felise Berman Founder Shiva Shanti Yoga.
