Yoga is more than body postures

Most people think of Yoga as physical postures. But Yoga is far more. Raja Yoga is one of the seven schools of Indian philosophy and has been taught for millennia. It offers a scientific approach to the spiritual life, with techniques for stilling the mind and expanding our awareness of spiritual realities.

It offers techniques for self-mastery in every aspect of life, from calming turbulent emotions to awakening deep compassion and love for others. Ultimately, it is a proven pathway, walked by countless yogis, mystics, saints, and sages for millennia.
