The Impracticality of Yoga

by Chad Balch (www.ChadYoga.com)

Someone watching an asana class might pose the question: “Why are all these people taking time out of their busy lives to put their bodies in these unusual positions?” Or someone peeking into a room in which tadasana is being taught might well question whether anything is going on at all. These reactions raise the larger question of whether yoga has any practical value whatsoever. more »

Yoga Teacher Training–Part-time Program Starts Soon

12 week part-time program begins in just under 2 weeks!

There are still a few spots available!  Our 12-week part-time program is for working Bay Area yogis who can commit to Tuesday and Friday nights, plus Saturday and Sunday afternoons for three months.

Yoga Garden’s Teacher Training is a community-supported personal transformation. Deepen your personal practice or learn to lead others. Learn the fundamentals of structuring classes, teaching skills, anatomy, philosophy, and the business of yoga.

We empower you with the knowledge, experience, and support to begin teaching yoga immediately upon completion of the program. See what our graduates are doing on our Graduates Page.

Sankalpa: The Power of Intention

by Sonya Genel (www.SonyaYoga.com)

I have heard many interpretations of the Sanskrit word Sankalpa. It roughly translates to “will, purpose, or determination” but I believe it can best be understood as an affirmation of intention. In the practice of yoga, working with a clear and honest Sankalpa consistently over time is incredibly powerful and often utterly transformative.

For me, yoga has always been so much more than just exercise. By weaving in a Sankalpa, I sense that each pose is both a dedication and a reflection of the intention in my heart. The physicality of this translation from mental words into embodied actions generates great power. The experience is profound. In doing asana, I am making prayerful art with my body. more »
