90-minute Weekly Yoga Class


Location: St Paul Yoga Center, 1162 Selby Avenue, St Paul

Time: Saturdays at 8:45AM-10:15AM


This peaceful Saturday-morning class is an excellent introduction to Yoga. Maria Toso seamlessly blends the esoteric principles of yoga as taught by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras with very accessible, all-levels accommodated, alignment instructions.

In yoga sutra 1.2, the second sutra of book one, Patanjali lays out the definition and purpose of yoga. Yogash citta vrtti nirodha: yoga is the cessation of the modifications, or fluctuations, of the mind.

This sutra gets right to the heart of why we practice yoga. Through the consistent practice of meditation, asanas (yoga poses) and breath awareness (pranayama), we gradually and patiently train our minds to quiet down so that we may experience our True Nature which is peaceful awareness.

This class if for you whether you are brand new to yoga or you have practiced for years. Anyone will benefit from this gentle yet effective 90 minute focus on reconnecting to the Spirit Self that is too often drowned out by the anxious ego based mind chatter.

"I very much appreciate Maria's focus on the philosophy of yoga as well as the movement. She does such a beautiful job of connecting heart, mind, body and spirit. Every time I come to one of her classes I realize some new internal reality or make a connection to something else I have learned on my spiritual path. It is wonderful. I don't have vast amounts of yoga experience, but she does that better than any other instructor I have encountered thus far.  Maria's approach is gentle and sincere. I love it. She is clearly meant to do what she are doing. A deep felt thank you."
