YOGA

Yoga is not a religion. It is a philosophy and ancient practice that began in India an estimated 5,000 years ago, which sought to harmonize the body, mind, and spirit. Today, many believe that the continued practice of yoga will lead you to an inner sense of peace and well-being.

While the word yoga comes from the Sanskrit word yuj, which literally means to yoke or bind, it is often interpreted to mean “union.” A male who practices yoga is called a yogi, a female practitioner, a yogini.

At Sanara, we utilize several different yoga techniques in our classes to help you achieve a balanced practice that delivers both strength and relaxation.

    Vinyasa

    The word vinyasa can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses for example. In vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate breath and movement to flow from one pose to the next.  Vinyasa yoga is used in our Sanara Spirit and Soul classes.

    Hatha

    Hatha comes to us from ha—meaning “sun”—and tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance of both the traditionally masculine (like active, hot, sun) and feminine (like receptive, cool, moon) aspects within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. Hatha yoga holds each pose through several breaths. It is in most every yoga class you take—including all Sanara classes—for it is the base or foundation of all yoga.

    Yin

    Yin yoga is a passive style of yoga with postures, or shapes, that are held for longer periods of time—typically two to five minutes or more. This style of yoga targets the deep connective tissues of the body (vs. the superficial tissues) and the fascia that covers the body. All Sanara classes use yin yoga techniques.

    Kundalini

    Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is a style of yoga that emphasizes increasing awareness, consciousnesses, energy and intuition through a systematic process of opening the energy centers, (chakras) in the body, illuminating the dark places in the mind and freeing the spirit. Brought to the west in 1969 by Bhajan, Kundalini yoga works from the inside out creating a peaceful, harmonious and transformed life.

MEDITATION

There are many types of meditation, including vipasana (insight), guided, mantra, zen (seated), metta, (kindness), gazing, sound, yoga nidra, and more.

Meditations help develop awareness or mindfulness of your body and your senses, as well as of your mind and heart. Meditation trains us to be in the present moment. When practiced regularly, meditation helps us to love well, reduce tension, heal the body, and—most of all—quiet the mind. All Sanara classes include some type of meditative practice.

MINDFULNESS

Think of mindfulness as simply being fully in the moment or paying attention on purpose. How do we accomplish this in our increasingly busy world? By working to maintain a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. When we practice mindfulness in class and at home, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future. While we offer dedicated a Mindfulness class, we teach mindfulness techniques in most of our yoga classes as well.

SOUND HEALING

​Sound healing is one of the oldest and most natural forms of healing,and it is still used all over the world in many religious and spiritual ceremonies. Studies have found that the human mind and body react positively to the sound of gongs, Tibetan bowls, crystal singing bowls, and so on. That’s because human beings are comprised mainly of liquid, so the harmonic vibrations from these instruments have a deep penetrating effect on our bodies, moving through our tissues and organs to promote healing and well-being. In our classes, we use sound to help restore your mind, body and spirit back to a state of balance.

PRIVATE SESSIONS

If you need extra assistance, consider booking a one-on-one session with one of our expert instructors. Private appointments can help you strengthen techniques in everything from yoga and mindfulness to meditation and beyond.

EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP TRAINING

Effective leadership depends on a person’s ability to listen and empathize—which in turn requires you to understand your own feelings, motivations, and ambitions. Our Executive Leadership training events can be tailored to your organization’s unique needs, while helping your professionals gain the in-depth insight they need to guide teams toward lasting success and productivity.
