Who Are We
Yoga is a portal to a more conscious, connected, blissful life. Westside Yoga was born out of a vision to return to and reconnect with what we understand to be the the original intentions of Yoga. Our ultimate aim is to cultivate a way of life that is conscious, mindful, connected and blissful. To achieve this we embrace not just the physical practice, but all aspects of this ancient tradition. Our mantra is to explore wholeheartedly a traditional and wholistic yoga experience, both on and off the mat, and to reinvigorate these ancient teachings into our modern world ….Westside Yoga is not your everyday yoga school.
Here we teach from the heart…. with genuine desire that every experience you have with us is authentic, grounded, insightful, connected and balanced. No gimmicks, just pure yoga that pays respect to the way it was originally intended, that is, to be a way of life. Physical practice is integral to our school but it is only one limb of a multilayered experience that is Yoga.
We are a Hatha Yoga School, but one that also celebrates and integrates the ancient principles of Yin & Yang to balance your practice and your life. We draw from Ashtanga, Iygenga and other valued traditions of yoga into our nurturing blend of Hatha Vinyasa (Yoga Flow). This active physical practice is balanced by our delicious Yin classes that are inspired by the teachings Paul & Suzee Grilley.
Our teachings incorporate all aspects of yoga including movement (asanas), meditation, pranayama (breath-work), nutrition, spirituality and philosophy, all interweaved with ancient traditional yogic knowledge and wisdom in a contemporary and dedicated modern school of yoga. We teach in a way that stimulates the body, mind and heart. Our core values are set deep in the highly treasured 8 Limbs of Yoga as first described by Patanjali, and yet we adapt and interpret these into an everyday modern lifestyle.
Our teachers are hand picked, highly dedicated and are completely committed to delivering you a full and rich experience that will enhance your life both on and off the mat. For us this is a way of life, not just a job. This combined with a deep and genuine commitment to nurture, connect and value every student, ensures a rich and valuable experience every time you step into our School.
Come and experience the difference for yourself. Take way you want and leave behind what no longer serves you.
