What is Dhyāna?
Dhyāna (dee-AH-nah) means "meditation" in Sanskrit (or specifically, the "flow state" of meditation) and it is considered one of the Eight Limbs of Yoga. At Dhyāna Yoga & Wellness, we carry forward the intent of classical yoga by using asana (yoga postures) and pranayama (yogic breathing) to prepare the body and mind for meditation. Bringing awareness to movement and breath, we can approach meditation with a quieter mind.
Looking to spend some time on the mat? Kripalu yoga can be described as a "moving meditation" that cultivates mindfulness and body awareness while moving with the breath. Increased strength, flexibility and vitality are just some of the benefits of regular practice. Our Kripalu style classes typically include pranayama (breath work) and a period of relaxation or meditation.
