Quick Note of Diversity
Karma believes there is not one path of yoga. We believe and offer a large variety of styles taught by experienced and certified instructors of each method. From complete beginners to seasoned practitioners looking to deepen their practice, our students love the choice a large yoga studio such as Karma can give them.
Navigating the world of yoga can be daunting and confusing at first! However diverse, all yoga styles are based on the practice of physical postures (also called poses, or asanas), and some styles also incorporate additional elements such as breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation, or chanting. Each style emphasizes different postures, different ways of sequencing these postures, and different ways of combining elements. Adding to this diversity is the fact that each teacher will bring their own personal viewpoint to teaching the yoga style you will practice during the class type you are taking.
As a student you have to find not only the yoga style with which you connect, but also the right teacher for you. Finding this magic combination that suits your needs and personality is a bit like shopping for that perfect pair of jeans -- you may have to try a lot of classes and teachers until you find it, or you may walk into the right class with the right teacher for you the very first time. Experimenting and trying different yoga classes and teachers until you feel "at home" is the way to go!
Unless noted otherwise, all classes at Karma are taught at a temperature of 72 to 75 degrees F (air-conditioning is used in the summer months).
