Yoga is the union of the mind, body, and spirit.  It is an inward journey to the Self. We are all on our own journey. This is not a competition. Start where you are, no matter how inflexible and love your Self. - NAMASTE - Shalan Hill

​The word "Yoga" means "union" of the body, mind, and spirit. The Posture Project considers yoga as a course in self study and solid health "ensurance". You can begin to listen, to feel, to sense your limits, to learn of your unlimited possibilities to feeling great, to breathe, to open, and to live with more freedom!


The Posture Project offers traditional Hatha Yoga with an Iyengar influence with emphasis on the breath or pranayama and energy movement.  We are the perfect studio for beginners to start their yoga practice and continuously progress, and the seasoned yogi enjoys deepening their practice with us, as well.  We guide you through each posture with awareness of body and breath. The different yoga poses can help you relieve pain, improve posture, develop strength and endurance, heal physically and emotionally, reduce depression, focus, lose weight, and rejuvenate.  Yoga is best known to create more flexibility and our most common feedback is that our students are “so relaxed” after class.  The practice of yoga can offer peace of mind and centeredness to be able to enjoy more or your precious time. 

Yoga can be a perfect means to maintain your fluid movement & freedom in your body to perform  your daily activities with ease.  It is a perfectly "well rounded" form of exercise for the body & mind.  

We recommend starting with two classes a week for the first month, then increasing to 3 - 7 times a week thereafter.  Your yoga instructor can give their recommendation for your individualized needs after your initial class.  

It is always important to share any body conditions, injuries, or limitations with your instructor Before Class.  We offer clean, alkaline, filtered and enhanced drinking water from our Nikken PiMag water system to keep yourself hydrated. 


WHAT TO DO & COMMON COURTESIES:

  • Be hydrated, drink extra water and limit caffeine and sugar before class.
  • Not recommended to eat 1 hour before class, but if you must eat, eat light.
  • Bring a yoga mat or large bath towel.

  • Limit movement during meditation times to lessen distractions.  If you need to use the restroom or get something for yourself, please wait until the meditation is over.
  • If you are a new student, come 5 - 10 min. early to complete necessary information on your first class, or print off our waiver to complete and bring with you.

  • Shoes are not allowed in the Yoga Room.  There is a shoe rack outside the entrance.  You may bring your purses or valuables in the Yoga Room to be placed near the restroom..

The yoga classes at The Posture Project are fantastic. I had studied yoga many years ago and enjoyed it, so I wanted to give it a try again. The instructors are experienced and offer many alternatives to the students to help them achieve the various postures. The classes are gentle, yet challenging and serve not only to strengthen my body, but also decrease my stress.  Walking into The Posture Project is like walking into an oasis of calm in a stressful world. You always feel like everyone is happy to see you and anxious to help you on your life journey. I'm so grateful for the wonderful people at The Posture Project for sharing their gifts of healing and strength. - P.K.


I met Shalan & Annie a couple of years ago and have been practicing yoga with them for about one year.  They are warm, kind, respectful, and light-hearted.  The classes are great for stretching and toning.  I have found them to be healing for the mind and body as well.  I am grateful to be a part of this studio. - M.H.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)

What is yoga? Yoga literally means "union." It is a practice of uniting mind, body, and spirit. Traditional yoga consists of meditation to focus and calm your mind, specific poses to stretch and strengthen your body, along with awareness of your breath (spirit or life force). 

Is yoga a religion? No. Yoga is a practice, a tool for self-healing, a way of life. If anything, yoga enhances religion. "Be still and know that I am God", and "Your body is a temple" are perfect examples of the practice of yoga. We at Breathe claim no religious affiliation, but want you to "Know thy Self." 

Do you have to be flexible to do yoga? No. Doing yoga is how you get more flexible. Start where you are (we find adjustments for you) and incorporate these wonderful stretches to lengthen your muscles, breathe deeper and let go of tension and stress and you will increase your flexibility.  Remember, "you get back what you put in." The more you stretch, the more flexible you become. 

Can anyone do yoga? Yes! If you can breathe, you can do yoga. If you are very frail, sick, stiff, or weak, just do what your body can do. Even just learning how to be aware of your breath will make a big difference in your life. If you can move your body in addition to your breath, you'll even see more. 

What do I wear / bring to Yoga? Wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in, but aren't too baggy. Bare feet are best. Bring a beach towel or yoga mat and yourself! Please no perfumes or cell phones! You might want to arrive about 5-10 min. early for class. 

What are the benefits of Yoga? Yoga is an incredible tool for self-healing. It helps you listen to your body so you can take care of it better. It helps you to calm and center so you can be more present in your everyday life. It helps to counter aches and pains when they start creeping up by opening and strengthening the body.

"...Yoga is an immortal art, science, and philosophy.  It is the best subjective psycho-anatomy of mankind ever conceived for the experience of physical, mental, intellectual, adn spiritual well-being.  It has stood the test of time from the beginning of civilization and it will remain supreme as a precise psycho-physical science for centuries to come.  
There are many different types of cells in the body, with physical, physiological, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual functions.  It is known that each cell has a life of its own.  These cells are the pearls of life.  In the practice of Yoga every cell is consciously made to absorb a copious supply of fresh blood and life-giving energy, thus satiating the embodied soul.  With serenity one then experiences the self by the self, and rests the self in the lap of the soul."  - B.K.S. Iyengar
