Our Approach

Welcome to Cafe Namaste, where we embrace the timeless wisdom of Yoga! As we dive into the essence of "Yogas citta vritti nirodhah" or "Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind" (Patanjali's Yoga Sutra 1.2), we'd like to share our approach and values.

At Cafe Namaste, we see Yoga as more than just physical postures; it's a holistic journey and an inner technology for self-realization. We understand that in the modern world, Yoga has sometimes strayed from its traditional roots, causing confusion. In the unregulated landscape of Yoga, our goal is simple - to stay true to the heart of Yoga, providing authentic and enriching experiences in every Asana and Yoga session.

 

What are we mindful of at Cafe Namaste?

 

We teach to the individual in the room, ensuring classes are inclusive with options for everyone. Our classes are designed to be appropriate for various physical levels, making the experience accessible.

To create an immersive Yoga environment, we minimize distractions of the senses. Whether it's ambient music or serene silence (no lyrics in music), we eliminate oils, scents, or anything that might take you out of your Yoga state. In relaxation classes, we may use aromatherapy for an added touch of tranquility.

Savasana is a priority at Cafe Namaste, and we devote a minimum of 5 minutes to this final pose. This allows ample time to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and at peace.

You won't find mixed classes like HIIT Yoga, Goat Yoga, or Beer Yoga here. We believe in preserving the authenticity of Yoga. Similarly, when we say "namaste," we mean it in its traditional form, avoiding variations like "namaslay."

And let's clear up a common misconception - at Cafe Namaste, we refer to our practitioners as students or sadhakas, not yogis. Yogi is the highest term given to someone in India and we'd like to honor that.

 

We believe that the journey of learning and growth is a continuous process. Join us at Cafe Namaste, where every class is a journey of self-discovery, and our commitment to authenticity and growth is unwavering.
