Pranayama is the art and science of breath. With experience in Asana the natural progression is to explore the subtleties and rhythms of the breath through techniques to both in elongate inhalations, exhalations, and eventually retain the breath.
Pranayama keep the body and mind healthy, producing energy and distributing that vital energy through the body. It increases lung capacity and fresh blood through the body, enhances your respiratory system, strengthens the circulatory system and nervous systems, and aids in digestion and elimination.
At YCSC, our approach emphasizes precise alignment and develops strength, flexibility, stamina and balance. Through regular practice, students gain physical health, mental peace and emotional stability. Currently, all of our classes are online.
Hopefully, in time we will be able to offer in-person classes again. Yoga Center Santa Cruz offers 35 classes a week in Iyengar-style hatha yoga from beginner to advanced levels. Our studio features 2 spacious rooms and is well equipped with the essential props i.e. mats, sandbags, blankets, etc.

Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.
