The temperature in the Soul Yoga studio room is kept between 72 and 78. We build heat within our bodies to warm our muscles and connective tissues in preparation for deeper movements and increased flexibility. Many researches have found that yoga at room temperature has the same benefits as hot yoga without the risk of over heating, over stretching, and dehydration. There are many people who practice both hot and room temperature yoga. For many it is simply personal preference.
The word YOGA translates to UNITE and refers to the union of the mind, the body, and the soul. This connection of the physical and the metaphysical does NOT require Athletic or Performance yoga. It does NOT require that you contort your body into unimaginable, instagram worthy shapes. At Soul Yoga you will be guided through movements and poses that, over time, bring your mind, body, and soul into alignment and unification. When our inner world begins to change it is reflected in our response to our outer world. We begin to stretch and flow to conclusions rather than jump to conclusions.
Walking into Soul Yoga is like walking into your own place of peace and safety. The space is calm, inviting, and peaceful. You will find smiling faces, warm welcomes, and overwhelming acceptance from the yogis and the guides. The space occupies the oldest house in Kyle, ordered from a Sears and Robuck catalog and built around 1900. There is a kitchen and a community room where events are held to promote connections between people. Many close connections and friendships have been born in this space in the past year. Come here and find a place to belong.
