With over 20 years of practice, Honeybee Yoga has its own personality, while still drawing on the ancient traditions of classical yoga.
On the physical side, the foundation of Honeybee Yoga is Kripalu Yoga. Kripalu Yoga is also known as “meditation in motion.” This tradition of yoga helps a person to slow down and draw their attention inward, linking breath with movement. With this tradition, the person is able to strengthen the body while slowing down enough to incorporate breath, awareness, meditation, and proper alignment.
Some influences from Svaroopa Yoga can be seen through the use of restorative postures and use of props to hold the body, supporting full relaxation and release of stress and tension. And Honeybee Yoga has used influences such as Kali Ray Tri Yoga for inspired and well sequenced asana flows that will feel more like play and get you in touch with grace.
On the more mental and spiritual side, Honeybee Yoga uses the study of the chakras (sacred centers of the body) to help us move past old physical and emotional scars, letting us live fuller lives. And what yoga practice is complete without the yoga sutras of Patanjali. This short ancient text can be studied and incorporated into our yoga practice as well as our lives to teach us how to live to our fullest potential.
