Were a Yoga Co-op based at the Jersey Shore, practicing Ashtanga Yoga in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. This method of Yoga involves synchronizing the breath with progressive series of postures — a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
Yoga is an ancient practice that originated within the wisdom traditions of India. The methods of yoga have shown that by using our body, breath and mind in a particular manner, we may find harmony within ourselves. In this fast-paced world we easily become detached from our bodies, lost in the world of worries and stress, and find ourselves rushing forward in an effort to keep up. Yoga pulls us back into our bodies, and teaches us an embodied awareness that keeps us healthy, filled with a sense of well-being, and a gives us a renewed ability to remain aware in the present moment. It is a holistic practice that supports all other aspects of life.
