Yoga Philosophy

A wise woman, who was traveling in the mountains, found a precious stone in a stream. She reverently placed the gem in her bag. The next day, she met another traveler, who was hungry. The wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone in her bag, admired it, and asked the wise woman to give it to him. The wise woman did so without hesitation.

The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the jewel was worth enough to give him security for the rest of his life. But a few days later he came back, searching for the wise woman. When he found her, he returned the stone and said:

“I have been thinking. I know how valuable the stone is, but I would like to exchange it in the hope that you can give me something much more precious. If you can, teach me the secrets about the power you have within you, the power that enabled you to, without hesitation, give me this precious stone.”  -The Secret Power of Yoga

 

At Yogaleena, we primarily practice vinyasa flow, a style of yoga that helps you connect breath to movement. Our yoga classes vary from deliciously invigorating to soulful and relaxing, so you can get exactly what you need every time you step onto your mat.

Through playful instruction, challenging flows, and gentle hands-on assists, you will learn to strengthen your body, relax your mind, increase flexibility, and find that sweet spot between effort and ease that you can apply on and off the mat.

 

Aside from teaching asana, our truest desire at Yogaleena is to share with you the importance of self-acceptance, exploring your creativity, trusting your intuition, and designing the life you want to live. Our core values are reflected in everything we do, and we can’t wait to share the Yogaleena experience with you.
