Comfort Yoga

Comfort is designed to move more slowly, offering the opportunity for you to get your, “Zen” on. A flow that facilitates a connection with breath, strength, balance, as we ease into the body, mind and soul. Sometimes moving slower in the physical practice is far more challenging then whipping through it. Prepare to feel “Mama” comforted and cared for in this flow. Set to mellow tunes and breath.

LEVEL: 1 (Great for Everyone, especially for beginners and those that need a little love!)

Soul Shine is a great class for those who want the Vinyasa flow at a steady, but slower pace. We will move through the salutations warming into our bodies, and then take more time to bathe in the standing and seated postures. This class will help you not only work your body physically, but will restore connection and vibrational alignment within your Self. Be prepared to let your Soul Shine, Mama Style. Set to sweet flowing tunes and breath.

ENERGY LEVEL: Sweetly Invigorating

Satsang & Meditation- Getting Present

yoga studio city, mamas yoga house

So often I am asked, “What is, Getting Present?” There is a Free Spirit that lives in every being. This is our infinite, natural, and divine Self. This Self is alive in the simplest gestures of loving-kindness and in the ways we respect others and ourselves. The Free Spirit can often be hidden by the illusions and distractions that so many of us are caught up in.

Attachments to preferences, likes and dislikes, judgments, addictions and fears, keep us from connecting with our innate, bountiful, life- giving energy. The good news, however, is that the Free Spirit Energy can never completely disappear. It is the sacred space in all of us, and the only distance between this boundless beauty of ultimate compassion and wisdom is our own ignorance. We can relearn who we truly are as human beings without forcing blame or resentment on anyone else by closing the gap of our ignorance. The search for Self leads us all to one place, the home within each of us. For some, our true nature may seem foreign at first, but within moments of recognizing our natural abilities, we become more free, energetic, aligned and abundant.

Satsang is a led teaching with time for sharing and feedback, followed by a meditation. This is an opportunity to grow, get real, put the walls down and connect authentically with like-minded souls.

What is the meaning of OM in yoga?

Om or Aum is a mantra that is often chanted at the beginning and end of yoga sessions. Om is both a sound and a symbol rich in religious meaning and depth. It is said to be both the sound of the creation of the universe, and the sound of silence.

When we can do yoga after eating?

Two hours after you eat is generally when you have an empty stomach and it’s okay to practice yoga. If you are starving and want to practice yoga but need some nourishment it’s fine to eat a banana or have a little juice to sustain you through the practice. Just no bean burritos before hitting the mat.

What is the meaning of hatha?

The word hatha means willful or forceful. Hatha yoga refers to a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures), and sequences of asanas, designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body—especially the main channel, the spine—so that energy can flow freely.

Hatha is also translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance of masculine aspects—active, hot, sun—and feminine aspects—receptive, cool, moon—within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites

How often should I practice to have the best results?

When first starting out try going twice a week then after one month start going three times per week. If you add up to going 5-6 days a week make sure you always have at least one day off so your body can recuperate. Also if you are practicing yoga almost everyday its good idea to mix up the style

Do I have to be flexible?

No you don’t have to be flexible to do yoga… It’s an urban myth that people who are tight can’t do yoga. Yoga isn’t just stretching its extremely toning, calming, meditative, spiritual, healing and opening. Flexibility is only one aspect of it. Once you practice yoga for a period of time naturally you will gain flexibility with a myriad of other benefits.

What Is Yoga?

The word yoga, from the Sanskrit word yuj means to yoke or bind and is often interpreted as “union” or a method of discipline. A male who practices yoga is called a yogi, a female practitioner, a yogini.

What Do I Need to Begin?

All you really need to begin practicing yoga is your body, your mind, and a bit of curiosity. But it is also helpful to have a pair of yoga leggings, or shorts, and a t-shirt that’s not too baggy. No special footwear is required because you will be barefoot. It’s nice to bring a towel to class with you. As your practice develops you might want to buy your own yoga mat, but most studios will have mats and other props available for you.

I have an injury/special condition can I take classes?

We recommend that you check with your physician first.

Can I take this Training if I’m pregnant?

I have had many pregnant students in my classes. It all depends on how you are feeling. All students should first check with their doctor to make sure they are clear to take this training.
