Jaya Yoga Center, in the neighborhood since 2000, offers alignment based vinyasa classes. Our staff of enthused and experienced teachers look forward to bringing you closer to a truly yogic experience in every class. We embrace all 8 limbs of the raja yoga path and as such you can expect asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, and even some chanting. Our deepest gratitude to Shri Krishnamacharya and all of our teachers.

At Jaya we are continually putting our hands together in a gesture called Namaskara. Namaskar or Namaste is a nearly universal hand gesture (Mudra) understood as a greeting. But unlike hello, Namaskar contains in it a deep bow. The bow we take with folded hands is in reverence to another’s soul and an acknowledgment of our own.
This month we explore all the beautiful Mudras—ancient and newer which add a deeper dimension to our time on the mat. Come find out what gesture the Buddha made at the moment just before Enlightenment came as he sat under the Bodhi tree. Find out which mudra is connected to the 7th limb of Patanjali’s Ashtanga 8 limbed Yoga Path put forth in his Yoga Sutras. In some classes you will find new-fangled mudras, less ancient but no less potent and all month we invite you to work with your hands exploring shapes which we apply with intention and loving kindness to our practice.
