THE PHILOSOPHY OF BIJA YOGA
‘Yoga’ is absolutely everywhere, both in the physical and online realms. From the pages of glossy magazines touting expensive yoga-related products to countless Instagram accounts featuring young and lithe yoginis contorted into seemingly impossible shapes set against exotic destinations. ‘Yoga’ is in our faces and yet … how much yoga – UNION – are we actually experiencing?
The popularity of yoga, I believe, is a direct reflection of our need for yoga. Now more than ever are these practices relevant and useful. But only if we integrate them so that our spiritual lives and our family/career/creative lives are as one.
It is with this hope that I decided to take on the space formerly occupied by Lila Yoga Studio and help bring it into its next incarnation. The space has ‘good bones’.
The updated space – open since April 2017- has new floorboards and a very minimalist look and palette. Think of it as your canvas for creating the most authentic life and in doing so, uplift the lives of those around you.
We offer classes in a flowing style reflective of the training of our teachers, as well as restorative, yin yoga and beginner. As a compliment to these more traditional classes, we also offer regular workshops focused on lifestyle and creative living such as meditation, vegan cooking, classes focused on creative expression.
BIJA literally means ‘seed’. We know that from the smallest seeds (seeds of intentions, words, actions) the strongest, most magnificent trees can grow; representing the infinite potential that exists in each and every one of us.
