We are a hatha yoga studio located in Atlanta's Grant Park neighborhood.
At Nirvana Yoga, All classes connect the mind, body and breath through a series of opening asanas (physical postures) and vinyasa (poses) which flow from one to he other in conjunction with the breath. This flowing energy creates a loving teacher/student dynamic which fosters healing and growing in the intimate atmosphere of Nirvana Yoga.
Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in America. It is the branch of yoga which concentrates on both physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind.
There are nearly 200 Hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs, glands and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility.
“Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity.
This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization.
Yoga means union — the union of the body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul.
Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in
the performance of one’s actions.”
- BKS Iyengar
