Instruction is based in the Hatha style of yoga.  Hatha is a physical practice that uses postures to explore the true nature of body and mind.  It unites opposite patterns within the body and breath and through the postures, you are able to open up the core of the body for observation.  As a result of paying attention to the subtleties of the body, you gain deeper insight, awareness and transformation.

The practice integrates anatomy and therapeutics to create the optimal alignment of bones and muscles so postures can be executed in the most ideal way to strengthen your physical and mental being.

The practice also incorporates Yoga philosophy which looks to nature and day-to-day experiences to stimulate and focus the mind. Tantra also represents intrinsic goodness and beauty in all and these sacred teachings of embodiment and relationship are weaved into the yoga practice.  It allows you to look within to seek  deeper connection within your own being, others, and the world around you.
