At Westside Yoga, we are on a mission to make yoga accessible, fun, and rewarding for everyone.
We believe that everyone can be successful in yoga, especially with the support of an inclusive community.
Yoga is a system for self-improvement that has been around for thousands of years. The great teachers of the tradition emphasize that yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory. With practice, we can all become experts; yoga is only as difficult as we believe it to be. If we show up with an open mind, and practice, our mind, body and spirit will be changed. While it is important to understand how to move safely in the poses, this is just one small part of the learning process. The most important part is to practice, and believe that all is coming.
Yoga teaches that our greatest teacher is within, and that is why we hold space in our classes for students to connect to their inner voice. Our instructors will guide you through the practice, but will also offer periods of silence, to allow you to stop thinking, and actually feel what in happening in your body. So many of us are disconnected from our bodies these days, and yoga is an opportunity to go within, and remember who you really are.
We believe in diversity and inclusiveness, and that is why all levels are welcome in every class. Westside Yoga is a sacred space, where you can connect with people of all ages and backgrounds, in a truly authentic way.
We are in the business of creating yogis--helping our students create a daily yoga habit that will enhance their quality of life. That is the true purpose of yoga--to create healthy disciplines that strip away avidya (the idea that we need something outside of us to be happy). With regular yoga practice, you will find a new kind of clarity and freedom, knowing that you have everything you need to be happy inside of you.
They call us the #happyplace, because we are committed to helping our students reveal their inner joy. The light in us recognizes and honors the light in you, and we hope to see you on the mat soon!
