Instant Karma Yoga

The yoga origins at Instant Karma are in the heritage tradition of Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar and his family of Pune, India. Iyengar Yoga is unique and known for its deep understanding of asanas (postures). Ultimately essential yoga, including ethics & philosophy, breathing, concentration, and meditation are described through experiences on the mat.

Iyengar showed us a way to profoundly study ourselves and envision possiblity. He charged us with the duty to seek out our maximum potential with courage, dedication, humility and love. These life lessons sustain us off the mat as well.

Iyengar's family of teachers can be found world wide. After many years of study, an ongoing commitment to learn, and upon passing an assessment a teacher may use the Iyengar Yoga certification mark. The mark is a symbol of sincerity and dedication in practice.

There is no experience required to take yoga class. Yoga is for EVERY BODY! Beginners are always welcome.  For locals and visitors alike, drop-in students accepted.
