Anuttara Yoga Shala Grand Tapas Hall is a warm and safe sanctuary where you will recover Body, Mind and Spirit. The room is heated to 93-95*F. There are classes for all levels of practice, from beginner to advanced practitioner.
Anuttara Hot Yoga – We move the body into a pose, counterpose and repose, representing the three qualities of nature, so as to safely access the body and all systems. If you are a beginner, this is an excellent way to learn the basic poses of Hatha Yoga. All levels.
Anuttara Raja Yoga – A style of yoga unique to Anuttara Yoga Schools. It encompasses a gravitational surrender in yoga poses that interpret the Yoga Sutras. We follow the prescriptions and dictates of our Guru lineage of Self-Realization. Anuttara Raja Yoga hypothesizes that the plastic tissues, primarily fascia, are the vast extensions of mind through the neuromyofascial sheaths that correspond to the meridians and the nadis (energetic channels). In Hatha Yoga we engage muscle in order to counteract gravity, whereas, in Raja Yoga we disengage muscle and surrender to gravity completely. All levels. Everyone welcome. Please note, the evening and weekend Raja classes may extend beyond 90 minutes, as they are our master classes. Enjoy!
Anuttara Vinyasa, Levels 1 and 2 — A form of Hatha Yoga that flows through the Sun Salutations in Sapta Krama (seven sequences). This vigorous, dance-like practice is cardiovascular and graceful. Its logical and progressive sequencing leads the practitioner to heightened physical, emotional and spiritual awareness. Familiarity with Hatha Yoga is strongly advised.
Anuttara Vinyasa Krama, Level 3 — Advanced practice. Inappropriate for beginners. Minimum instruction.
