At Santosha all of our classes are rooted in the SATTVA yoga tradition.
SATTVA yoga was developed in the Himalayas of northern India and follows the Yog-Vedantic and Yog-Tantric traditions and technology. SATTVA yoga is a holistic, integrated yoga practice which includes all aspects of the yogic teachings. The entire being is considered, body, mind and soul. Our yoga classes may include any combination of asana (postures), pranayama (breathwork), meditation, kriya, mantra and/or meditation.
A therapeutic level of heat may be added to some classes to allow for greater ease in stretching the tissue.
It's called a "journey" becaue this experience will take you to places where the possibility of transformation can happen!
Every class is it's own unique journey into breathing techniques, kriya, and kundalini (as brought forth from the Yog-Vedantic tradition) and can include mantra, postures and guided meditiation.
This integrated approach to yoga also activates dormant and underused parts of the brain, and releases buildup of old/trapped energy from the energy centers creating balance.
This is an ancient yogic modality for holistic healing. If you are looking for a deeper yogic experience and to do something that will create health and change in your body/mind, come join us! All levels are welcome. 90 Mins
SATTVA-60 Integrated Flow

Designed for all levels. 60 Mins.
Slow Flow & Yin
This class experience is a play of movement and stillness. This class will instill a sense of ease -even when there is effort. Ideas of "easy or difficult" begin to dissolve as we move through postures, allow for the breath to flow, and find dynamic stillness. All levels are welcome. Good for beginners who want to slow down a "monkey mind" and restless body.
This class is an experience of Shiva and Shakti -the fierce divine feminine and masculine energies that reside in each one of us. This class will bring balance of these energies through asana (postures), pranayama (breath work) and kriya.
Designed for all levels. 60 Mins.

This class is an integrated practice and additional pranayama (breathwork) and/or kriya may be added.
Level I-II. 75 mins.
SATTVA Himalayan Breathwork Practice
Our breath contains prana (life-force/energy). The more we practice to expand and master prana, the more we benefit on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.
Breathing as a practice becomes an exploration of these benefits and how we can heal ourselves.
This 45min minute class provides detailed instruction on various yogic breathing and breath-kriya techniques as brought forth from the Himalayan/Yog-Vedantic tradition.
The benefits of intentional breathing techniques are vast: Strenghthen and balance the energy centers, energizing all areas of the brain, releasing old neuro pathway connections and creating new ones, create a stronger, healthier central nervous system, boosts the immune system, heightened awareness, increases our Connection and intuition, relieves symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD and cultivates a deep sense of peace.
An adaptation of the original hot series. This class is therapeutically heated, and is good for all levels. The focus is on asana (postures) and this class is designed to help create mental discipline through concentrated attention.and can help create a strong connection to the body/mind. No music. Students move with the structured instruction of the teacher. 75 Mins.
