Janak Desai

Janak is an experienced 200 hour certified yoga teacher from the Sivananda school. Sivananda yoga is a classical hatha yoga system which emphasizes relaxation of the nervous system and tapping of the life force through pranayama and asanas, using this as a gateway into meditation and the more profound aspects of the yogic practice. After many years of a mostly asana based practice, Janak craved an approach to yoga which moved beyond physical exercise, and found just that with Sivananda. Janak's class is constant reminder on being connected with the breath and guides the practitioner back to the present moment. You can expect to experience a profound calming of the mind and sense of inner peace from the inward focus of the practice. He teaches various formats - hatha, restorative and yoga nidra. Janak is a tree hugger and can often be found communing with the veggies in the garden.

On a lifelong journey to be her best self, Morgan returns to the mat to find her center and use the tools of yoga in everyday challenges and obstacles. Through linking breath work, meditation and movement, Morgan’s classes help students, of all levels, create awareness of body, breath and mind and honor their own unique and authentic practice.
We like to think of this as the "best of both worlds."This is a 60 minute class that combines a Level 1 yoga practice with Yoga Nidra (Conscious Sleep/deep guided meditation). All levels are welcome.In the first part of the class, you are led through a series of postures (asanas) and breath work (pranayama) in a manner where lots of instruction is given, and the pace is moderate. More challenging variations of postures are offered, but absolutely are NOT required. This movement prepares you for. . .In the second part of the class, you are guided through a Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a profound, deceptively simple and scientifically based tool for physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Through the use of specific guided visualizations the practitioner is able to enter a state of deep rest and penetrate the otherwise inaccessible recesses of the mind.
