Yoga Classes

Yoga practice involves a series of poses and postures which aim to bring alignment to the body, relax the mind, and gently stretch and strengthen the muscles. The poses are combined with controlled breathing exercises to bring the mind’s focus to feelings and sensations in the body. While the practice dates back to ancient times, yoga has become an extremely popular way for both men and women of all ages to improve their health, mental wellbeing, and to relax after a long day at work

Yoga is for internal cleansing

Yoga is for internal cleansing, not external exercising. Yoga means true self-knowledge.

"I like to come to Yoga Om to practice Yoga, Meditation and Kundalini because all those practices help me to control my body and my mind. This is not a gym studio that happens to offer yoga class. It’s really a place where yoga is meaningful. And the fun part is that along the way you can also discover that you have muscles too YOGA OM studio is my happy place."

My  experience at the time "In Kundalini, I felt that I was withdrawing more internally and the awareness of my surroundings had decreased.  The focus on my breath had increased and I was surrounded by heat, especially around my head.  After class, I felt calmer and everything looked 'brighter'. "

When I first decided to take yoga, I was unsure of where to go as a beginner.  I am lucky to have found Yoga Om as my first experience.  The atmosphere is welcoming and calming.  Joy is a wonderful teacher.  She is very patient with the students and instinctively knows how to motivate everyone to enhance their individual practice.  I appreciate the benefits I have received from yoga both physically and mentally.  Since taking classes at Yoga Om, I have been inspired to make yoga a part of my life.

My name is Pat I am a 70 year old female that started yoga a year ago at Yoga OM.I never did yoga in my life before I came to the Yoga OM studio.  Joy personally helped me learn and encouraged me.Today I feel like I am 60 years old and have more flexibility than I have had in years.I am sure I am the oldest student in the class but everyone encourages me and makes me feel welcome.I would not stop yoga for anything, this studio has changed my life.
