 Those who practice yoga faithfully experience newfound strength, flexibility and peace of body, mind and soul.  It is our sincere intention to see you achieve similar results and we are here to help you in any way that we can.

We can learn not to keep situations or events alive in our minds, but to return our attention continuously to the pristine, timeless present moment rather then be caught up in mental movie-making. Our very Presence then becomes our identity, rather than our thoughts and emotions. 

- Eckhart Tolle

     There are a number of yoga paths suited to differing individual temperaments. They all lead eventually to realization of the Self as spirit, a soul at one with the great body of spirit that permeates the entire universe. At first you may be intimidated by this lofty goal; simply be present and begin. "A journey of one thousand miles begins with the first step."

     The word yoga means to yoke or join, to achieve union with. It has two meanings, as it also defines the process, the "how to," of achieving union. "Union with what?" you ask. Union with the Supreme Being, universal intelligence, the ground of being, God; use the word or concept for this "higher power" with which you are most comfortable. For the time being, just allow for the possibility of this transcendent experience to exist for you. In time, with devoted practice, the goal is attainable by anyone!

     Classical yoga, first organized by Patanjali many centuries ago, described the eight limbs or stages of yoga, symbolized by our studio name, Eight Stones. As students advance through these eight stages, they reach higher levels of consciousness, peace, light and bliss.

     The eight limbs of yoga are:
          Yama - Universal commandments of right behavior
          Niyama - Individual prescriptions for right living
          Asana - Right posture
          Pranayama - Life-force control, with attention on the workings of the breath
          Pratyahara - Withdrawal of the mind from the five gross senses of the body
          Dharana - Concentration of the mind
          Dhyana - Meditation
          Samadhi - Bliss consciousness

     Eight Stones classes are primarily Hatha Yoga oriented, with a focus on Asana and Pranayama. Teachers will add elements of other stages based on their experience and the needs and desires of their students. Do not hesitate to talk with your teacher about any aspect of yoga practice with which you need further help or clarification.

     Enjoy, have fun and persevere. You have our best wishes for success, peace and joy!
