About Heartland Yoga Studio
The name of the studio reflects the tenet in Indian yogic philosophy that believes the soul is housed in the heart center. The soul’s light is often hidden but is thought to shine brightly in saints and yogis. Everyone contains this brightness in their heart, but we must learn to let go of the tensions, frustrations, traumas, and false beliefs that conceal this light.
Yoga is a tool to help people surrender everything that really isn’t them, and step into their own light. Yoga precisely means “union with self/spirit.” The reason we practice is to remember and become reacquainted with our true nature, which is light and balance and ultimately, bliss.
Heartland Yoga offers opportunities to learn about the many aspects of yoga’s eightfold path such as the physical practice (asana), meditation (dhyana), mindful breathing (pranayama), healthy behaviors (yamas and niyamas), and union with the self (samadhi). Through this balanced practice we not only strengthen our bodies physically but also address our spiritual and mental bodies, all within the supportive network of a yoga community.
