A MESSAGE FROM THE OWNER; ReDefining Yoga & Pilates, Tai Chi Studio
My most valued experience has come from time spent on the mat;
as a student learning, as a teacher teaching, as a coach coaching,
and in my own Self-practice, practicing.
Inspiration has been found through many insightful gurus, master teachers, and students who have crossed my path and have walked with me;
of Jesus Christ, God, family, friends and from life itself.
My consistent goal is to teach a return to spiritual, moral and ethical behavior based upon respect of Self, and of others; through a constucted and whole yoga practice.
My goal in creation of this Studio is to provide you a place of stillness and balance; where growth of Self respect begins, and where community responsibility results.
Tenants of Community (showing up);
Purpose (releasing expectation); and
Non-Resistance (being open to outcome) represent our focus.
Dharma ~ Artha ~ Kama ~ Moksha
Inspiring you to recognize the way you look at life, your relationship to all things you experience throughout it, and to clarify and set forth your highest potential and Self meaning through your study and practice of yoga…

Focus: Integration and intention of specific defining principles and philosophies; of strength and flexibility balance built within a pranic energy induced creative flow that inspires brain health; while building acceptance to constant change leading to your own personal Grace.
Seeks to Inspire:
That the path to change, in the world of which we live, is in the understanding and acceptance that change is the constant; and that brain (mental health), physical and spiritual health is imperative to this understanding and acceptance.
Motivational Yoga inspires this understanding and acceptance
through the trinity of;
Physical, psychological and spiritual health.

THE 4 PILLARS
THE 8 LIMBS OF YOGA, and
LIVING THE MANTRA of MOTIVATIONAL YOGA
1. Teaches the importance of being present (of ‘showing up’) through long asana (posture) holds with; an active integrated and intentional internal focus; an active self-inquiry; and engagement of active drishti, bandha, pranayama and meditation techniques.
2. Encourages that you meet your Self on the mat (honesty); actively engaging edges through disciplined defining principles while consciously launching a set sequence of self-inquiry.
3. Developing ‘Adaptability to Change’ (letting go of expectation); through creative and ever-changing sequencing and joyful surprise; sequencing follows pranic energy as it moves through the body with a strong focus on letting your breath 'do the work'.
4. Cultivating an ‘Acceptance to all Outcomes’; through Gratitude and Grace both on the mat and off the mat with every cycle of breath.
Motivational Yoga teaches you strength within your own stillness,
allowing you to find, and experience your personal Grace Point.
With a constant challenge of edges and walls,
We move forward.
This the essence of Motivational Yoga
