Yoga Is an Ancient, Sacred Practice To Connect

The Mind, The Body, and The Spirit

Which Leads to a Holistic Approach to Healing and Wellness in the Body.

It's Our Breath and Movement that connects us to nourishing all areas

                 of our lives, including our relationships, our spirituality, and the world around us. 

Yoga begins with prayer and setting our intentions for our practice.
 

The five principles of yoga include:

Proper Exercises (Asanas)

Proper Breathing (Pranayama)

Proper Relaxation.

Proper Diet and Nutrition.

Meditation and Positive thinking.

By the 1970s, when many of our present-day yoga leaders had just begun practicing, Alice had already traveled to India with Satchidananda to play and learn about eastern music.  She studied Indian and yogic spiritual concepts and philosophies, eventually being called to spiritual leadership and transforming her identity to Swamini Turiyasangitananda. (Black Yoga Teachers’ Alliance, 2022).

Gentle Yoga helps to get the body out of stress-mode, releases tension,

                     calms the  nervous system, to gain clearer thinking and restores an overall

                                        sense of  balance to the body, the mind and the spirit.
