Mission

 

At HoYS we focus on teaching traditional Yoga. We do our best to offer ancient, time-tested teachings from India that are illuminated in a variety of Sanskrit texts. The teachers at Heart of Yoga are all daily yoga practitioners, and true facilitators of peace; not simply exercise instructors. The primary focus of our teaching is:

Hatha Yoga – Body and breath yoga with an emphasis on balancing and purifying the subtle energy body. The primary text we use is Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

Bhakti Yoga – The yoga of love and devotion. We primarily share this practice by way of kirtan on Friday nights, Harmonium classes, and teaching from the Bhakti texts like Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavata Purana, and Narada’s Bhakti Sutras.

Karma Yoga – The yoga of selfless service. Heart of Yoga School is a karma yoga center maintained by our teachers and students. Karma Yoga is actually the very Heart of HoYS.

Raja Yoga – The yoga of meditation and understanding the inner workings of the mind as prescribed by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras.

Jnana Yoga – The yoga of wisdom as prescribed in the Vedas and the Upanishads. This is also known as Vedanta.

Nada Yoga – The yoga of sound and vibration. Classical Indian Music is profoundly healing on an emotional and physical level; many teachers play this music in their classes.
