Yoga is a moving meditation. It has the power to transcend the physical being and touch the mental and emotional aspects of our lives. It creates space within us to work through whatever we need to work though; find gratitude in what we have; change our perspective on the world around us, and cultivate peace, strength and love in ourselves so that we can become more compassionate and empathetic.
Muse Yoga specializes in Hatha, Yin, Pain Care, Chair yoga, and Yoga Nidra. Hatha is a sanskrit word meaning the union of the sun and moon as it is a balanced practice based on alignment of not only the physical body, but also of the mind and spirit. Though yoga is a physical practice, and is used by many as part of their overall physical well-being, yoga is actually a moving meditation that allows us to be in the present by calming our minds through breath, and surrendering to the moment through challenging poses so that we can, much like coaching, create the space within to discover our identity and values, and create powerful futures for ourselves.
Yin is an introspective yoga practice that’s slower, softer, and calmer than other styles of yoga such as hatha, which can be more dynamic and heat generating. Yin focuses on stillness and patience through mainly floor postures that are held for longer periods of time. The longer held postures allow students to surrender even more to the moment and go inwards even deeper to discover the physiological, mental, and emotional benefits of the practice.
