Science behind Yoga

Body

Today, modern science has brought to light the immense impact of ancient Yoga on physical, physiological, and psychological aspects. More than an exercise, Yoga improves body flexibility, strengthens systems, organs, and muscles, and balances every system from the nervous system to skeletal, immune, and cardiovascular systems. 

Mind

Positive mental health is one of the core benefits of Yoga. Yogic practices improve mindfulness and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, which activates our rest and digest response. The most proven way to elevate stress, Yoga balances the hormone system and enables better control of emotions and thoughts.

Breath

Yoga gives us a pathway to accessing the most essential and powerful tool we need to survive - breath. By accessing and controlling our breath, we can improve our health & well-being immensely. Developing the habit of conscious breathing makes it possible to activate the higher centers of our brain and experience life to its fullest.

Types of Online Yoga classes we specialize in and teach

Shvasa’s teachers have practiced and trained for years in the homeland of Yoga - India. Our teachers are experienced in various styles of Yoga, making sure you get to practice exactly what is required.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga classes are even-paced with great emphasis on the breath. Hatha Yoga postures when done in conjunction with the breath help us develop awareness, strength, focus, and balance. According to Hatha texts ‘Ha’ means sun and ‘tha’ means moon, and through the practice of Hatha Yoga we can balance these energies within the our bodies. Hatha Yoga can be very relaxing, yet energizing.

Vinyasa Yoga

Steady-paced dynamic classes, Vinyasa Yoga classes are practiced in a flow by stringing together asanas. Coordinated with the breath, these flows infuse energy, burn calories, ignite the digestive fire, called Agni, and improve strength and flexibility. Perfect for intermediate to advanced practitioners, these classes are challenging yet invigorating.

Ashtanga Yoga

A dynamic and challenging type of Yoga asanas, Ashtanga vinyasa classes consists of a series of asanas in a fixed sequence that strengthen yet balance and calm the mind and body. Movements are coordinated with the breath and practiced in a mindful and concentrated manner.

Restorative Yoga

Slow, meditative, and relaxing is the essence of a Restorative Yoga class. Consisting of practices that aim to restore and rejuvenate the mind and body, these classes allow you to focus on the breath while releasing stress and tension. Gentle, stress-relieving movements are practiced for a healing and calming impact.

Yin Yoga

A slow-paced practice, these classes focus on holding in one posture for 4-5 minutes. These classes help develop a deep meditative and relaxed state of mind. It allows you to slow down, withdraw from the external, release stress, and feel energized.

Pranayama

Prana means life force and Yama means regulation. Through the practice of Pranayama, we regulate the breath, and thus, the life force. Through various breathing exercises, we can balance, cool down, and energize the body, along with regulating many physiological systems.

Meditation

Proven to release stress, improve focus and productivity, sleep quality and calm the mind and body, meditation is a profound practice and one of the most positive habits you can form. We have regular, short meditation classes to help you achieve better mental health and well-being.

Yoga Nidra

A guided relaxation technique, this practice works on the subconscious mind, allowing you to release stress, anxiety, and worries. It balances the nervous system, helps overcome sleep difficulties, and is therapeutic for the mind.
