ashtanga yoga in sacramento

Ashtanga Vinyasa and Classical Hatha Yoga practice for all levels.

Breath, flow, meditation, bliss.

I don't have any regularly scheduled
classes going on at the moment.

But I hope you'll join me for 1st and 2nd Series
Ashtanga adventures at Yoga Shala in Midtown
Sacramento. See some information at the right
-- and there's more on the
schedule page.

If you're relatively physically fit and new to
yoga I'd suggest joining us for these workshops
to start your Sacramento yoga explorations. They
will be mixed-level sessions for both beginners
and more experienced students offering lots
of modifications, alignment instructions and
chances to just skip a pose and observe.

There will still be many challenges for
Intermediate and advanced level students.
How hard do you want to work? Previous vinyasa
yoga experience isn't required. And proficiency with
1st Series isn't needed to have a great time in the
2nd Series sessions. It's a totally different skill set
and not necessarily harder, just different.

See the
schedule page for more workshop
details and location information. More discussion
about different yoga class styles appears on
descriptions page.

Please call if you have questions regarding
these sessions or there are mysteries to discuss
about your options for yoga in Sacramento.

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga is
the original flow
practice from India.

All the various
"brands" currently
prevalent of vinyasa,
flow yoga and power
yoga practice use the
Ashtanga system as
their sourcebook.

All levels are
welcome at any of
the sessions.

Grab your mat and
come with bare feet,
a somewhat empty
belly, and a desire for
a great time as we
move your practice
to the next level
What is the right practice for you?

If you're just starting to explore yoga in Sacramento, finding the right class
can be a fun adventure. Wander around, check out a few teachers at
different studios.

Then come check out some yoga with me. What I do is perhaps the most
fun yoga Sacramento offers. And in case you haven't figured it out, I should
mention that yoga needs to be experienced rather than just read about.
The practice develops strength, flexibility and mental focus. It has a snap
and crackle that will keep you coming back. And it's fun! Or should be -- if
you've found the right teacher for yourself.

Yoga comes from an ancient meditative tradition. It's been around for 5,000
years because it works. It isn't just a class -- I hope to make it your way of
life. Let's get started!
