Yoga practice simply supports us in revealing the unity of body, mind, and spirit that exists naturally. The classical hatha yoga style of the Sivananda tradition aims for that realization of our true nature through a physically and energetically effective practice of asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, and relaxation.
Tey and Paul present this practice of the ancient yogis in a way that is accessible, enjoyable, and helpful in handling the challenges and stresses of modern life.

Open to All Levels.
Paul Weitz has trained in Iyengar, Ashtanga, Viniyoga (which he learned from Gary Kraftsow) and John Friend’s Anusara yoga. He draws elements from each of them, creating a flow style of yoga, which he describes as sun salutation oriented with an emphasis on technique, opening the heart, and working with prana, or energy. What makes Paul’s classes special, more than his expertise, are his compassion and sensitivity to each student’s needs. He goes to each one, correcting their form, offering individual suggestions, and applying pressure to deepen a pose. Each class has a different focus and students learn something new each time.
