Ground Yoga is an urban sanctuary dedicated to the development of healthy bodies, clear minds and open hearts through the experience of Yoga. Students are encouraged to sweat, enjoy and challenge themselves, as well as begin to explore
their inner life on the mat, which inevitably echoes into life off the mat.
Ground Yoga offers a diversity in yoga classes, as well as a wide range of teachers and teaching styles. Whether you are new to yoga or have an already established yoga practice you will find Ground Yoga to meet you where you are at, and to encourage and support you to move beyond.
Lead Ground Yoga instructor, Vincent Lu E-RYT 500, YACEP Yoga Alliance, has studied and practiced a variety of Hatha Yoga styles including Ashtanga Vinyasa, Sivinanda, Iyengar, Yin, Therapeutic and Restorative yoga, and continues to blend this eclectic mix into his own personal practice and teachings. Vincent teaches many yoga classes each year in beginner, intermediate and advanced classes. He focuses on blending the body, mind and spirit and believes without the union of all three in conjunction with the breath, there is no yoga, just physical movement. His teaching style consists of a blend of these schools integrated with balance, meditation, pranayama (breath), mindfulness, presence, and personal revolutions. In his classes Vincent focuses on anatomical principals of alignment, injury prevention and rehabilitation and combining strength building and flexibility. Students are encouraged to listen to their body, adapt the postures to their body and play with their limits without exceeding them.
Yoga is Vincent’s passion and he believes it is critical to maintain balance in all aspects of life. His hope is to facilitate students to improve their life by make permanent changes in their body, mind and spirit, as they incorporate the principles of yoga into everyday living.
