EDPE 161-01        Studio Yoga

Experience yoga off-campus in a warm room exclusively dedicated to the practice of yoga, meditation and study.  At Spokane Yoga Shala, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is taught.  Ashtanga involves the practice of a specific sequence of poses combined with an equally specific way of deep, calm breathing.  These two aspects together create vinyasa (breath led movement).  This practice of vinyasa then generates heat which, over time, can rid the body of the harmful by-products of our everyday stressful lives.  Ashtanga is a physically challenging form of yoga and practitioners quickly notice an increase in flexibility, strength and endurance.
