What is Shiva Shanti Yoga?

At Shiva Shanti Yoga, we focus on the practice of asana with a flow (vinyasa), philosophy, deep breathing, restorative yoga, meditation, yoga nidra and mantra; to enhance one's health and wellbeing. 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 of time, always our classes are created to intelligently flow. 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, backbends, 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.

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.

What are its benefits? Yoga seeks to bring an individual into balance physically, psychologically, emotionally, spirituality, and energetically. Some of its deeper benefits are to help the practitioner meets life’s challenges with strength and stability, and to guide him or her toward the fulfillment of his or her highest potential.

Where is the best place to take a yoga class?  Yoga is now offered in many environments—health clubs, senior centers, community centers, and of course, yoga studios. Most places other than yoga studios offer yoga as an Eastern version of a workout or aerobics class, or concentrate solely on the physical aspects.

If you want to experience the deeper and more profound benefits of yoga, a yoga studio is the place to go. While this is not true of every studio, a little investigation will reveal those studios that offer the greatest depth and breadth in exploring the entire spectrum of yoga. In addition, a good yoga studio will be able to assess the most appropriate course for you to follow, giving you guidance that is not available in other places that offer yoga as one of many exercise programs.
