The practice of yoga originated in India. It has been around for 5 thousand years. Through the physical discipline of movement, meditation, and breath control Yoga provides many physical, mental and spiritual benefits. The literal meaning of the Sanskrit word yoga is to add, join or unite. At Om Yoga, we believe that Yoga is a wonderful way to connect to ourselves, to the present moment, and to each other.
Om is said to be the sound of all creation. It contains all other sounds, all words, all languages and all mantras. Om is the reflection of the absolute reality, it is said to be without beginning or end and it embraces everything that exists. The three letters AUM represent creation, preservation and liberation. Chanting Om elevates our consciousness, unifies the energy in the room, and symbolizes our connection to all that there is.
Most students like to use their own yoga mat and towel. If you ever forget your mat, towel or water…no worries! We’ve got you covered. We rent yoga mats and yogi toes for $2.00, Hand towels for $1.00. We also sell water bottles, mats and other yoga accessories.
Wear something that makes you feel comfortable. It’s best to wear clothing that does not limit movement, or cut circulation. You may be upside down in certain yoga poses so very loose clothing is not recommended. Shoes and socks are not needed.
