Types of yoga

There are many types of yoga. Hatha (a combination of many styles) is one of the most popular styles. It is a more physical type of yoga rather than a still, meditative form. Hatha yoga focuses on pranayamas (breath-controlled exercises). These are followed by a series of asanas (yoga postures), which end with savasana (a resting period).

The goal during yoga practice is to challenge yourself physically, but not to feel overwhelmed. At this "edge," the focus is on your breath while your mind is accepting and calm.

Yogesh candra das

He began practicing different types of yoga and meditation at a very early age. His need to deepen his spiritual knowledge took him to India, where he traveled extensively with his spiritual teacher. He has trained many international level practitioners in Hatha and Mantra Yoga meditation for the past 30 years, dedicating his selfless service to others. On his metaphysical path, he has always been committed to providing everyone with the opportunity to discover the spiritual self through yoga. With this in mind, he co-founded the Houston Chapter of the Devanand Yoga Center in 1993 as an independent non-profit organization. He is the driving force behind this organization, having created a unique yoga center in the United States. Currently, he guides the Kirtan or Mantra chanting segment of our evening yoga classes. Yogesh also teaches classes in Vedic philosophy and meditation.

Breanne Lighten

During my holistic journey I fell in love with the art of yoga, which grounded me physically and mentally.Dealing with certain body ailments mentally and physically deepened my curiosity for homeostasis. After studying yoga philosophy and homeopathic medicine, views on life are different than before beginning on this journey. Holistic Wellness became essential in my everyday lifestyle. Through this art I have been able to become one with myself and the surrounding environment. 

My tenure working at stretchlab, southern flow yoga, and private practice has granted unlimited opportunities and knowledge for a deeper understanding of yoga and mobility. Through attending various classes available further increased my proficiency in different skills. Over the course of time I found a burning desire to create a career in something held within my heart and soul. With the support of family, friends, and fellow yogis I found my calling. Thus, the journey to become a Wellness Practitioner was inevitable.

I am currently certified in RYT 200, stretch therapy, sound healing, meditation, and ayurveda. Helping others lead a more holistic lifestyle, offering private sessions, group classes, and virtual sessions is my dharma. These sessions are not only physical, but mental as well. When you step into our session, expect change and growth. Prepare to dive within the depths of your soul and unlock a new way of life.
