We Are Yoga Vida

GHOSH TRADITION

At Yoga Vida we believe life is better with yoga. Yoga exercises your body and focuses your mind. Yoga builds balance, flexibility, and strength. Through yoga you can develop discipline and self-awareness, manage stress, and relieve tension, all while participating in a gracious community.

Yoga Vida believes your yoga practice should challenge you while allowing room to breathe, that postures should be held and sustained to achieve the benefits, that hard work yields results, and that the best communities are accessible and inclusive.

Yoga Vida teaches three distinct, complementary classes derived from the Ghosh Yoga Tradition.  Our classes are 90 minutes long, and our yoga room is heated and kept quiet to promote deeper stretching, prevent injury, and ease tension.

Change happens one drop of sweat at a time. Live la vida yoga.

Ghosh Tradition

ALIGNMENT, STILLNESS, AND SEQUENCE

Bishnu Charan Ghosh was born in Lahore, India in 1903. A bodybuilder specializing in feats of strength and muscle control, he began his yoga training at the  Ranchi School for Boys which was founded by his older brother Paramhansa Yogananda, the author of Autobiography of a Yogi and founder of the Self Realization Fellowship. In 1924, Ghosh founded Ghosh’s College of Physical Education in Calcutta, India1. Bishnu Ghosh’s best known students and successors are Buddha Bose, his son Biswanath Ghosh, Bikram Choudhury, and Tony Sanchez.

The Ghosh Hatha Yoga system is based on 84 asanas, 3 pranayama exercises, mudras, bandhas, and kriyas. Ghosh yoga has both a physical therapeutic focus and a spiritual culture. The asanas are designed to stretch, compress, and stimulate all parts of the body: muscle, bones, joints, and organs. Pranayama, mudra, and bandha are intended for more spiritual purposes.

The Ghosh Hatha Yoga system is intended to be accessible to everyone, to heal the body, reduce stress, and quiet the mind. Ghosh yoga is built on 3 principles: physical alignment, stillness, and sequence2. Physical alignment contributes to the optimal development of posture, body, and mind. The greatest benefit of a posture is attained when using correct form and effort. Postures are held between 10 to 60 seconds followed by a brief recovery period. Stillness and sequence are therapeutic to the body and mind by building bodily awareness, focus, and strength.
