*One practices in holistic martial arts to heighten their skills, have vibrant health, and to raise their awareness in all aspects of their lives. They learn to appreciate all life. A martial artist dwells in integrity, self-discipline, and honor – not to be acknowledged, but to be of service to the world.

"This Sivananda style of yoga feels very healing. The way the class is led, the healing energy is built up powerfully and then absorbed directly into the body. The teacher, Hari-Om RadhaKrishna, is easily able to work with people at all levels. He is a very kind, intuitive and obviously athletic teacher. The studio is well-appointed and he creates a calming atmosphere within it."
