Lalitha® Yoga Classes
Lalitha Yoga is an authentic practice. A complete path, it creates an experience of wholeness in the individual and the collective. It is not just a physical practice but a process of cellular transmutation from gross to subtle to divine; body, mind and spirit integrate. Lalitha Yoga, a comprehensive self-healing system, creates wholeness in body and mind.
The natural approach to health and well being, Lalitha Yoga is condensed into five yogic principles: proper exercise (asana), proper relaxation (guided meditation), proper breathing (pranayama), healthy diet (plant based nutrition) and positive thinking (meditation).
It manages stress, maintains a youthful appearance, promotes health and well being, enhances intuition and creativity, increases intelligence and evolves. Whole Self Integration allows the head, heart and hands to work together. This wholeness is the highest healing.
Practices are sensitively and intuitively designed to meet the needs of the moment. They support and empower. An individualized approach, practitioners become joyful and natural, experiencing the fullness and beauty of life.

Lalitha® Yoga and Ayurveda
Prescription for Mind Body Wellness
Ayurveda, the Science of Life, is the ancient mind body medicine of India. Ayurveda recognizes three life forces in the body called vata, pitta and kapha - the basis for health or disease.
Yoga and Ayurveda reflects the true healing potential of yoga. It forms a complete system of well-being that remains relevant for all people, all cultures and all time and can be adjusted to our modern life circumstances with many benefits for everyone. Yoga and Ayurveda promotes positive health through yoga asanas, breath and mantra.
In a Yoga and Ayurveda session for the physical body, Margaret sequences yoga asanas to treat doshic imbalances, rebalancing them and sustaining them as forces of health and vitality. These yoga asanas promote positive health. They balance and prepare body and mind for pranayama and meditation.
Yoga and Ayurveda for the mind offers the healing of consciousness. In a Yoga and Ayurveda session for the mind, Margaret offers pranayama (breathing) and mantra (prayer).
In Yoga and Ayurveda, these practices - asana, breath and mantra - integrate body, breath and mind to lead you towards your highest potential.
Give Yoga A Try And Discover What It Can Do
A central premise in yoga is “everything is connected.” That’s clear when looking at the health and fitness benefits of yoga that have long been reported by practitioners and are now being confirmed by scientific research.
Yoga reduces stress in body and mind. It reduces the physical effects of stress on the body by encouraging relaxation and lowering the levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. Related benefits include lowering blood pressure and heart rate, improving digestion and boosting the immune system, as well as easing symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, asthma and insomnia.
Yoga can ease pain. Studies have determined that practicing Yoga asana (postures), meditation, or a combination of the two, reduced pain for people with conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, auto-immune diseases and hypertension as well as arthritis, back and neck pain and other chronic conditions.
Yoga teaches people to take slower deeper breaths. This helps to improve lung function and trigger the body’s relaxation response.
Yoga helps to improve flexibility and mobility, increasing range of movement and reducing aches and pains.
Yoga asanas (postures) use every muscle in the body, helping to increase strength literally from head to toe. Yoga also helps to relieve muscular tension.
Yoga (even less vigorous styles) can aid weight control efforts by reducing the cortisol levels, as well as by burning excess calories and reducing stress. Yoga also encourages healthy eating habits and provides a heightened sense of well being and self esteem.
Yoga helps to improve circulation and, as a result of various poses, more efficiently moves oxygenated blood to the body’s cells.
Even gentle yoga practice can provide cardiovascular benefits by lowering resting heart rate, increasing endurance and improving oxygen uptake during exercise.
BETTER BODY ALIGNMENT
Yoga helps to improve body alignment, resulting in better posture and helping to relieve back, neck, joint and muscle problems.
FOCUS ON THE PRESENT
Yoga helps us focus on the present, to become more aware and to help create mind body health. It opens the way to improved coordination, reaction time and memory.
