This class is for students who are new to the practice of yoga or for those who would like a slower-paced class. This is a gentle and relaxing class, that allows for the deepening and lengthening of the muscles and the use of proper yogic breathing (pranayama) to stay in the present moment to fully experience each posture (asana). The gentle stretching of all areas of the body will aid in the release of stress and tension from the joints and muscles, while creating peace and clarity in the mind.
Satya Yoga offers Gentle/Beginner Yoga to all students who would like to experience the practice of yoga in a creative and nurturing environment. All students are encouraged to listen to their own bodies and move to their own breath.

Kundalini Yoga is a Raj (Royal) Yoga. It is a Yoga for people who participate in society, not aesthetics who live away from civilization. Yogi Bhajan brought Kundalini Yoga to the U.S. for the first time in 1969.
Accoriding to the 3HO Organization, "In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purifiy the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul."
"Kundalini Yoga is the science to unite the finite with Infinity, and it's the art to experience Infinity in the finite."
-Yogi Bhajan, 10/27/88
Translates as ‘supreme ultimate’ and truly it is! But why? As the definition implies, the benefits are too many to list, but in general Tai Chi brings the practitioner health, balance, strength and confidence at any stage in life. I believe Tai Chi is the Tao (The Way). Not only is it a martial art it is a means for increasing your overall wellness, and the best part is that any body size can excel at Tai Chi! Tai Chi uses relaxation and physics to become a devastating art. As opposed to fighting foes, as well as the foes of daily living, with tension and aggression, we fight our foes with relaxation and balance.
When we relax into the ground and don’t push off of it we find a sense of ‘rooting’ into the ground. Through rooting we act as a blade of grass in a hurricane. The grass, rooted in the earth will just bend in the fierce winds whereas the strong oak will be uprooted and sent flying. Seeking relaxation in the tumult of a storm is the essence of Tai Chi and the Tao

Prenatal Yoga is the perfect way to stay flexible, create energy, relieve stress, and prepare both mentally and physically for the birth of your baby. The physical postures, and breathing and relaxation skills learned in this class can help with delivery and beyond. Yoga can help soothe discomforts during pregnancy such as swollen feet, indigestion, and back pain. The poses also target the awareness of the pelvic floor, the center of gravity in your ever-changing body, and the opening of the hips to help prepare your body for delivery. Class always ends with a meditation designed to connect with your breath, your growing little one, and to enhance your ability to stay in the present moment.
This class is a six week session and designed for the beginning student. In the class you will explore breathing techniques, yoga postures, and relaxation techniques. Upon completion of the six weeks we hope that you have the confidence to explore other yoga classes to practice the fundamentals learned in this class.
