The practice of yoga coupled with the knowledge of Ayurveda creates a synergy that amplifies your ability to create a healthier body as a vehicle to spiritual evolution.  Each yoga pose possesses great potential to balance the five elements, harmonize energy, and stabilize the mind. In Ayuryoga we give great attention to this inherent potential, we seek to utilize and magnify it to balance the five elements, and harmonize the energy. The power of mental concentration is turned inward to discover the communication within your own body.  This connection deepens the practice of yoga and transcends into all areas of life.
