Dennis & Kathy’s philosophy:
We are not tied to any one tradition and not restricted in our teaching as we love them all. We believe that you can only teach that which you actually practice and experience. One cannot simply read and theorize; one must practice and take that practice inward to experience the multiple layers and terrain of oneself. We integrate our studies of the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, The Upanishads and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika as well as other sources.
We consider ourselves as guides or facilitators of an experience rather than teachers per se. We want to share the potential of yoga as it was shared with us. Our practice is guided by our knowledge of the yogic model of the body, Chakras, the philosophies of Yin and Yang and the subtle layers.We believe that yoga is about relationships, you with yourself, you with the world and the divine. So with us, the practice is not a “work out”, but very much a “work-in”.
