Invest In Yourself
Lakshmi Rising Vinyasa Yoga is an intentional practice that includes dynamic asana, fluid sequencing for injury prevention, purposeful pranayama, meditation & mantra, chanting, dance and ritual for optimal well-being, spiritual growth and self awareness. And yes, we are a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School offering yoga teacher training certification programs since 2014.
Stay In Style
We deeply value comfort, style, art, esthetic, and the balance between form and function as vital pillars of health, and as a major influence on any experience. After all, our surroundings are an extension of our physical body and effect us all in obvious and subtle ways (emphasized in both Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine). We offer high quality comfort in all of our accommodations at every unique location. You will have the chance to nest in our well-appointed, tasteful, and relaxing high-end private properties. You won’t be roughing it or in a backpackers hostel.
Our method is a revitalizing approach that goes beyond just the physical aspect of yoga. We do not view yoga as a performance art or competitive sport. We practice & teach yoga as an internal, healing and personal practice. Our founder and director, Dr Liz Lindh, studied directly with TKV Desikachar, and carries on the vinyasa lineage of Sri Krishnamacharya, considered by many to be the father of modern yoga. The Lakshmi Rising method is unique in the way that we fuse current research in the fields of exercise science, physical therapy, neuro-science, mind-body psychology and epi-genetics with the time-tested tradition of classical yoga. This is a modern and informed relationship with yoga that is relevant to the current challenges we face in todays industrialized civilization.
