CONNECTION Yoga is about building an inner connection between the body, the breath and the mind to find peace, balance and a sense of well-being. Yoga is also as powerful and rewarding as one makes it, and exploring this energy among the safety of men adds to its strength. Yoga is also about community, and OMY prides itself on being a safe and welcoming space to foster a community for like-minded men.
STYLE OMY classes are taught in a classic hatha tradition with influences of Kriya, Tantra and Sufism. The emphasis is on moving energy intelligently and seamlessly through breathing, postures and meditation. The deeper, more beneficial effects of yoga can be realized by focusing on body alignment, conscious use of breath and stilling the mind.
Most of us are in need of relaxation, and yoga will challenge participants. The use of progressive sequencing and breath work will ultimately lead to a deeper sense of peace by the end of every class. LEVEL All classes are taught incrementally for all levels of participants. Yoga is a personal process, so everyone is individually encouraged to practice and progress at his own pace without feeling pushed or held back.
For those with specific, acute health issues, a recommendation from a health-care provider is strongly suggested.
