Yoga-Asana is the third of the eight limbs of yoga as described by the ancient sage patanjali. Asana is the practice of performing a sequence of postures, intended to enhance the health of the body, mind and spirit. In each class the sequencing of postures changes as does the theme or focus as well as the pace. Verbal instruction, demonstration, the use of props and gentle touch are used to facilitate understanding. Students are encouraged to regulate the breath, hold a steady gaze, be present and be comfortable.
