About Yoga

Yoga is a transformative body-mind tradition that has been practiced for thousands of years. Physical postures called "asana" are traditionally combined with mindful breathing to explore a progressively deeper awareness of the body, mind, and present moment. Yoga classes at IOBT are taught in small groups, providing opportunity for the instructor to give plenty of individual attention and hands-on adjustments. Our yoga classes are designed to challenge students physically as well as encourage relaxation, meditation, and spiritual inquiry.
