    Importance of Yoga

  11. We love to meditate at Upaya Yoga, but understand one meditation is not for everyone. That’s why one day we could be swirling and twirling in the garden courtyard, the next we might mindfully with awareness walking to the ocean’s edge. So if its dynamic dancing and release you are after, or sitting in energetic stillness, we have the practice to suit your style. Or maybe you will find a new one too!
