purusha school is rooted in the 8 limbs of classic yoga

Our trainings are based on the 5 kosha model of the human experience which includes the physical, energetic, mental, wisdom, and spiritual dimensions, and we believe that through direct experience, personal application, deep reflection, and sharing, you will naturally become a great teacher of Yoga. Our Teacher Trainings are not only about learning to teach. However, many choose this path as a means of experiencing and exploring the many facets of Yoga in a deeper and more meaningful way. We study the energy system of the chakras and vayus as well as western modern science, Tibetan mysticism and world truth/values that call on optimal human potential for well being of each individual, self realization and realization of a healthy community, planet and world.

Purusha helps its students recognize these gifts and share them with the world.

This studio is an oasis. With so many yoga studios in the city centered solely on fitness, it’s nice to find a place that expands beyond the physical into the lessons of yoga - integrating the philosophy. It has such a great vibe, it’s always felt really cozy and welcoming. The schedule has a wide variety of classes and they switch up schedule a few times a year which keeps things new. I have gone through their 500 RYT training program and had a really nice experience. The teacher’s training was a huge learning experience for me and very invaluable.
