te•jas (ta'-juhs), n. inner light, luminosity, valor, essence of fire.
It is our mission to create a sacred and peaceful environment in which authentic yoga is practiced, a community is built and boundaries are explored so participants may realize their fullest potentials, both physically and spiritually. We at Tejas Yoga Chicago are devoted students of the Patanjali system of yoga and are committed to sharing knowledge derived from our own experiences. We encourage our students to bring more awareness into their daily lives in order to prosper and to fulfill their deepest wills. We incorporate physical postures, breathing techniques, concentration, meditation and the ancient art of Ayurveda in every class we teach. These components are applied in an intelligent and intuitive way with the purpose of achieving a balanced state of health and wellbeing. Whatever your intentions or aspirations, our objective is to create a setting in which you will feel supported and respected throughout your journey. At Tejas Yoga we aim to inspire and motivate as we all move toward the ultimate goal of Self-Realization.
Welcome to Tejas Yoga.
