The Yoga Hive is a green studio connecting people from all backgrounds and fitness levels through the practice of yoga.
We believe that yoga makes people happier and healthier; which means that there are fewer people wearing their grumpy pants around and more people who are tuned-in to themselves and to the greater community. Rather than an attitude, our staff has adopted an “OM”itude. We are open, friendly and ready to help you. One om at a time, we will reconnect with ourselves, our neighbors and maybe even meet a few new friends along the way. Choosing to stay fit and live conscientiously isn’t always an easy path, but once you give us a try, we hope to make your path a little more inviting and inspiring.
Kundalini Yoga is called the "Yoga of Awareness" because it enables the direct and loving connection of the finite
(the individual self) with the Infinite (universal consciousness). We engage in the breathwork, the kriyas, the meditations, and the chanting of mantras that are all part of the foundation of this amazing practice. The healing, powerful, and uplifting merging of individual consciousness with universal consciousness is our path, and the pranayam, the kriyas, the asanas and the mantras which we practice are integral parts of that path and important and supportive aspects of daily life. We are in a time of great challenge and change, and we have the tools to enable us to make our way with the strength, clarity, and wisdom that we each need. We invite you to join us in the beauty, the grace and the power of this work. We are all on the journey together.
