ABOUT

THE VASTU—
a space to illuminate a vital body,
tranquil mind and nourished spirit.

 

THE NAME

The desire to practice with artful intelligence, contemplative philosophy and enjoyment of life led to the creation of THE VASTU. The name, which means energy, originates from vāstu śāstra, the science of architecture from the classical scriptures on knowledge, the Védas. The essence of THE VASTU is deeply rooted in yoga, which is sanskrit for union.

THE VASTU embodies the alignment of body, mind and breath to cultivate wellbeing. Our desire for you is that, through the practice, you create palpable sense of peace and presence, and the energy to live your dreams.

You are what your deep, driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.
— the Upanishads

THE SPACE

According to the vāstu śāstra, our spaces and dwellings are designed with universal resonance to create functional health and prosperity. The structure and natural design elements of our studio, with lots of natural light, high ceilings, and nourishing amenities, do just that. We invite you to experience the synergy of the space, centrally located and accessible to nearby communities and major highways with ample, free parking.


THE PRACTICE

A strong, effective, complete, well-performed, fully realized practice fortifies our vastu - strengthens the physical body, calms the mental processes and uplifts our spiritual orientation. The practice is drawn from classical yoga teachings as relevant to modern day life. THE VASTU offers a balanced framework of several styles and traditions guided by form, alignment, meditation, breath awareness, scriptures, mantras, and music.

THE VASTU classes explore the architecture of the body through the principles and patterns present in nature, nourishment and life. Our studio classes are designed for all ages, body types and practice levels.


THE PURPOSE

Our purpose is to create a space to illuminate your best self. We gather for practice, meditation, nourishment, inspiration, curated shopping experiences and events that give back to our world. THE VASTU brings together ideas, talents, expert trainings and teachings that cultivate community and the joys of wellbeing.
 

Love,
