be. in Union Yoga is EMVY
(EMpowerment Vinyasa Yoga)

Yoga is about YOU. Vinyasa simply means incorporating breath with movement. The physical aspect of the practice helps builds strength, muscle length, alignment, mobility, and better bodily function overall. But the physical asanas are tools–less stress is placed on the heat or the “power” aspect of the practice, and more focus is placed on using the asanas and movement to breathe and to build awareness and connection to your mind and body.  We invite students to really own and feel empowered by their practice. 

All of our classes at be. are founded on the notion of empowerment. All classes are all levels, designed for every|body, whether you’ve never practiced or have practiced for eons.  Emphasis is given to practicing yoga: building your practice and adapting the yoga postures to your body, not adapting your body to the yoga postures.
