Some of you may recall, that many years ago we titled our yoga classes - power yoga. But these words now are conflicted with a style of yoga that is overly physical and the mind space of calmness is left behind in the dust in favor of fast moment and an uncontrolled mind. So, we use the term Vinyasa to describe our classes best. Vinyasa means "to set or place mindfully". And, at CPY that is exactly what we do every single class. Every class at CPY has focus on developing a meditation practice that includes movement and mental peace. The postures of yoga should be practiced with a jovial mindset, steadiness and peacefulness. There is no force or push in our yoga practice, because the simple practices themselves are already challenging enough.
For many current day students, we cannot run to the woods for peace like the ancient sages of yoga. We are living in a concrete jungle. So, we have to take whatever little peace we can get. For many of us, the peace achieved in 90 minutes at College Park Yoga relieves an entire week of suffering. So, whether you are thinking about starting a yoga practice or you already have one in place, make sure you take time out to experience CPY's unique yoga practice and enjoy the amazing benefits of dedication and simplicity!
