At Shiva Shanti Yoga, we focus on the practice of asana with a flow (vinyasa), philosophy, deep breathing, restorative yoga, meditation, 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, 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, backbends, forward bends, hip openers, twisting, inversions, Shavasana, meditation, and mantra. Our classes are designed to join the mind, body, and spirit. The temperature is balanced for safety and never overheated.  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.”
