Mission:

At HoYS we focus on teaching traditional yoga and correcting the incomplete image of yoga in the west. More often than not, yoga is presented as merely exercise, and in actuality it’s so much more than just the physical poses. It’s a variety of pathways that allow for self-realization, and when we find ourself on a path that’s compatible with our overall disposition we glean the joy of doing our own dharma, or living our truest life.

We do our best to offer ancient, time-tested teachings from India that are illuminated in a variety of Sanskrit texts and avoid hodge-podged new age constructions.

The teachers of Heart of Yoga School 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. Music and the Bhakti texts like Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavata Purana, Ramayana, and Narada’s Bhakti Sutras help us go deeper.

Karma Yoga – The yoga of selfless service. 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.
