Welcome to Shashi Yoga's Yoga and Meditation Center. To teach you how to repair your body, their goal is to provide you with the most current knowledge of a science that dates back thousands of years.
Shashi Pottathil, the Yoga and Meditation Center's founder and owner, has been teaching Classical Hatha Yoga for over 35 years and is a fountain of knowledge on the subject. Through his straightforward explanations of science and spirituality, each class will teach you the mental and physical benefits of yoga.
Since 1999, the Yoga and Meditation Center has been a registered and certified yoga school with the Yoga Alliance. They offer a diverse and unique program, currently training over forty-five teachers. Their program is adaptable to your specific needs. They offer over thirty classes each day, morning and evening, six days a week. Teachers may join at any time because this is an ongoing program. Their training will equip teachers with the tools necessary to thrive in all facets of yoga teaching.
Yoga, according to the sage Patanjali, is Chitta Vriti Nirodhah, or the unification of body and mind, and it envisions the wellness of human beings on all levels, including the physical, mental, and spiritual.
Aasana (posture), pranayama (breathing technique), pratyahar (concentration), dhyana (meditation), dharana (concentration), and samadhi (sacred silence) are the eight steps of yoga. Yoga is also referred to as a way of life, and when practiced regularly, it is said to provide numerous benefits.
Yoga incorporates the practice of meditation, which is concerned with mental relaxation and concentration. The focus of attention is on the thoughts and the breath in this position. Being mindful of one's breathing automatically regulates one's thought process, resulting in complete relaxation of the mind.
On Saturdays and Sundays, the Yoga and Meditation Center offers two weekly workshops. Each class is an hour long and is designed to delve deeper into the topics covered in class. Each Saturday, the workshop varies, but Sundays always include a group meditation class. Both classes are donation-based, so please be aware that space is limited.
Yoga can be used to bring balance to your life and cultivate a profound sense of inner peace. Each of their instructors has been trained to adapt yoga to your unique body. They believe that anyone, regardless of age, size, gender, or physical limitations, can (and should) practice yoga. Yoga is experiential, and each practitioner embarks on a unique journey.
