Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of love, good fortune, beauty and prosperity. She blesses those whom have clear focus, goals and direction.

Rising means to advance, grow or ascend.

Vinyasa is the sacred dance of breath and movement.

Yoga is integration.

Lakshmi Rising Vinyasa Yoga is an awareness-based practice that incorporates fluid sequencing and the full exploration of asana, bandhas, pranayama, mantra, meditation, ritual and intention.

We emphasize expressing and loving the whole Self as we courageously meet whatever exists in the present moment. Our practice is designed to cultivate mental, physical and spiritual strength and to recognize and transform our patterns and conditionings, to eliminate all that is not effective as we allow our own unique process to unfold. We value a challenging vigorous physical practice, and we also know how important it is to move slowly with therapeutic space for rest, relaxation and revitalization.  You will find music, laughter, sweat and wild silly sensual fun harmoniously combined with stillness, self-discipline, silence and introspection.
