Yoga asanas (exercises) increase flexibility, strengthen and tone muscles, balance hormones, cleanse and flush all the internal systems of the body, calm the mind and reduce stress. Our classes at ASMY are non competitive and focus on safely progressing from easy to more challenging poses. Classes are suitable for all levels and include kirtan, meditation and relaxation.
Kirtan is the singing of ancient Vedic mantras, spiritually uplifting songs, prayers and the Sacred Names of the Supreme. Rather than being a type of performance, Kirtan is a journey of self discovery. It is the most powerful and enjoyable form of meditation. By meditating on these sacred sounds we reach a state far beyond the stress and worries of life, gain deep spiritual insight and inner happiness.
