What is Wellness Based Yoga?
Wellness Based Yoga is an asana (physical yoga class), taught with the infusion of personal development anchored in western psychology, Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine; which contains the elements of an effective asana class: movement, breath work (pranayama), hasta mudras (had positions) and meditation. The class style is considered Hatha; however vinyasa philosophy and restorative postures and sequencing are included.
