Our Story

Brahma >>> pure consciousness.

Shanti >>> peace.

Yoga >>> union.

Through pure consciousness, one can attain peace and be in union with ones true self. There is not just one thing you can do to find peace, or happiness, or meaning to life. It is a bunch of little changes here and there along the way that will allow you to open up and find a balance in your hear and in your mind. It is then that you will be open to new ways of thinking, new ways of learning, new ways of seeing the world. Find something that makes you happy. Yoga literally means Union. Union with your truest, happiest self. That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to do yoga or be a hard core yogi to find union with your highest self, however, the practice of yoga (asana, pranayama, etc.) will clear your mind and open the energy channels in your body that have become stagnant through non-movement or incorrect alignment.
