     Gentle Yoga is for anyone who enjoys a nurturing, slow-paced, well-supported and relaxing practice. Props are used such as chairs and walls to allow students to practice within their own range of motion safely. The class is held at a comfortable pace and is designed to create breath awareness, enhance balance and increase flexibility. The class ends with a guided relaxation to soothe the central nervous system and release deep muscular tension.

    Dear Student,


    Happy New Year from Yoga Studio South! Our regular schedule will start on Mon January 6, 2014. 

    We hope that you all enjoyed your holidays and are recharged to start the new year. January 1 2014, was a very special day at the Yoga Studio South, we would like to thank Pandit Dabral for a beautiful fire ceremony, meditation and Yoga nidra session.

     We are also very excited to introduce a few new classes and would like to welcome a few new teachers to our teaching team. Please check them on our website.

    As we are still in the first week of the New Year I would like to share a New Year message by Parmahansa Yogananda from year 1934:

    " Make new determinations as to what you are going to do and what you are going to be in this next year. Set a program for yourself; carry it through, and you will find how much happier you will be. Failure to keep to your schedule of improvement means you have paralyzed your will. You have no greater friend and no greater enemy than yourself. If you befriend yourself, you will find accomplishment. There is no law of God preventing you from being what you want to be and accomplishing what you want to accomplish. Nothing detrimental that happens can affect you unless you sanction it.
    Be always with people who inspire you; surround yourself with people who lift you up. Do not let your resolutions and positive thinking be poisoned by bad company. Even if you cannot find good company to inspire you, you can find it in the meditation. The best company you can have is the joy of meditation."

    ``"It is only when the correct practice is followed for a long time, without interruptions and with a quality of positive attitude and eagerness, that it can succeed."  Yoga Sutras
