We've changed ! What is still the same is we believe yoga is for everyone, from all walks of life regardless of religion, level of fitness, flexibility or size. From the professional athlete to senior citizens and all people in between! We offer yoga classes accessible to everyone from the beginner to the lifetime practitioner.
The Yoga Oasis, Inc. was founded in 2001 when we began Traditional Hot Yoga from the Bishnu Ghosh lineage of yoga(Bikram Yoga). We expanded our teaching style and types of yoga classes over the years to offer a variety of Traditional Hot Yoga along with Yin Yoga for the joints, Yin/Stillness & Yang/Movement, Harmony & Balance, Deep Stretch & Qigong. What's different now as we move into offering classes at Elemental Healing Charlotte is the Traditional Hatha Yoga ( previously Traditional Hot Yoga) will be taught without added heat. Don't worry, you'll build internal heat with nice long holds. As the Master Yogi Tony Sanchez once said about practicing the Ghosh System of yoga without added heat, "You've conquered the heat, now it's time to conquer the yoga"
Consistency is the key and the game changer for healing your body and for improving flexibility.
Our philosophy? It's simple;
Do what you can, from where you are, with what you have. We encourage a regular practice of 3 sessions each week for maximum benefits.
- Yoga helps strengthen, stretch, detoxify and de-stress the body.
- Yoga improves focus, clears the mind of "mental' cobwebs, and enhances overall well-being.
The Yoga Oasis classes give you the opportunity to relax and take a break from the busy details of life. Each practice invites you to be the passenger and enjoy the scenery(on the inner level) The beauty of our yoga classes are they offer a challenge enough for all levels, yet not too extreme and therefore accessible to everyone
