Where Attention Goes, Energy Flows.
Created by Liz Arch, Primal Yoga is a dynamic yoga & martial arts fusion style that merges vinyasa yoga with the artistry of kung fu, and the grace of tai chi into an athletic, heat building flow while focusing on alignment, balance, strength, power, and flexibility.
Vinyasa is a Sanskrit term in relation to a certain style of yoga, referring to a transition between two different positions. Nyasa means ‘to place’ and vi means ‘in a special way’. So essentially you are placing yourself in a special way step by step from pose to pose. It’s shining a light on transitions. One of the most popular styles of yoga in the US, vinyasa involves synchronizing the breath with a contintuos flow of postures.
Hatha is a Sanskrit word that means ‘force’ and translates loosely to ‘union through the discipline of force’. Hatha represents the ‘sun’ (ha) the masculine energy and ‘moon’ (tha) the feminine energy and the balancing of these energies through asana, pranayama, and meditation.
Yin Yoga is a passive practice involving variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3-5 minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia. Yin Yoga applies moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body with an aim of improving flexibility. A more meditative approach aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality within.

Meditation is a technique used to still the mind. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to take your mind, like loose change out of your pocket, and just place it on a dresser? That utter silence and stillness. That constant ‘yimmer yammer’, as I like to call it, ceases. What bliss! But for
