New to Yoga?

Just Show Up!

Come at least 10 minutes early so you can fill out our client waiver and get accustomed to the space. We have yoga mats and towels you can use, and we have water to fill your bottle as well, so even if you are just starting out we can provide you with everything you need to have an enjoyable experience.

Yoga guru, Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois so eloquently says, “If you can move and you can breathe, then you can practice yoga. There is only one man that cannot practice yoga, and that is ‘lazy man’.” We can’t emphasize that enough.

Why Yoga? Is Yoga for You?

Two short answers: Why not yoga? & Yoga is for everyone!

The list of benefits for yoga and why everyone should be practicing is endless. More and more of our students come to Santosha Yoga from the recommendations of their family physician, cardiologist, chiropractor, massage therapist and counselor.

The journey of yoga starts from the outside and then goes inward. It’s like peeling away the layers of an onion. We can’t have a healthy body without a healthy mind and can’t have a healthy mind without a healthy body, they go hand in hand. When we start to heal the body through yoga poses the healing then “auto-magically” continues on the inside, taking us into the journey of self-realization which is the true essence of yoga.

Teacher Training

Currently we are teaching the advanced 300 hour yoga teacher training, which required the students attending first having completed a 200 Yoga Teacher Training, taught a minimum of 100 hours and being registered with Yoga Alliance. At the end of this training, the teachers who have completed it will be 500 YTT and will have truly deepened their knowledge of the true essence of yoga, “A true master is an eternal student”.

Our next 200 Yoga Teacher Training will begin October of 2016. We are in the process of updating the catalog with information about the training, but in the mean time please contact us with any questions that you may have. It’s never too early or too late to start this amazing journey of becoming a yoga teacher and changing others lives as well as your own.
