There are many different styles of yoga practice, diverse methods, and individual lineages. There is not one single yoga philosophy. Yoga is an umbrella term that covers many traditions and practices. Formally, Yoga is one of the six schools of Indian philosophy called darshanas. It is a Sanskrit word that is translated as follows: ‘to yoke’, “to unite” or “union”. The practice of yoga encourages an experiential understanding of the interconnected nature of life. It is a path of self-transformation, self-exploration, and awakening. Each class is an invitation to open up and touch the essence of life.
In Nepali maya means love. The essence of life is Prana. It is the stuff that makes life move and the most refined and pure expression of prana is LOVE.
prana = the life force = love
