GW Body Practices Ahimsa
Ahimsa means non-harming or non-violence in Sanskrit. Ahimsa Yoga is founded on the principle that yoga should be safe, accessible, inclusive, and engaging for all students — regardless of physical condition, level of experience, or reasons for being interested in yoga.
What is OM?
OM is the “sacred syllable” of Sanskrit, the ancient language of Northern India, home to the practice of yoga. It represents the four states of consciousness: waking, dreaming, deep sleep, and pure consciousness. We often chant OM at the beginning and/or end of class. Please feel free to join in or sit quietly and allow the vibrations of the chant help you to relax deeper.
