About Yoga

Yoga is a venerated science distilled from masters who have gone deep within themselves discovering secrets of health, peace, longevity and vitality. The components of this system are physical, mental and spiritual. The 8 Limbs I referenced earlier from Pantangali’s Yoga Sutras: Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyanna and Samadhi. The 6 branches as taught by Integral Yoga® are Raja (the royal path), Hatha (asana), Japa (mantra), Jnana (yoga of the mind), Bhakti (yoga of devotion), and Karma (yoga of service).

About Vimukti Aslan

Vimukti Victoria Aslan, C-IAYT, E-RYT200, RYT500 brings her curiosity and passion as a certified yoga instructor in Integral Yoga® Hatha Level I, II, III, Gentle and Therapeutic Yoga, Stress Management.

The use and breadth of the physical body has always fascinated me starting with the days I was a professional dancer. My years at New York University continued the study of the body and voice in theater. I continued on the path of creativity working with incredibly talented directors, writers, singers and dancers in the world of avant garde theater and music. Eventually, I entered the world of yoga, meditation and martial arts obtaining a black belt in aikido in the USAF school under Yoshimitsu Yamada Sensei, Shihan. Each of these forms reveals how body, speech and mind must work in harmony to bring consciousness.

My interest in the restorative powers of Therapeutic Yoga led me to certify as a teacher under Cheri Clampett. I am a registered member of Yoga Alliance®, a certified instructor for The Yoga of Recovery® and a happy member of the Integral Yoga Teacher's Association. I am also certified as a Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

My journey continues toward compassion, patience and love through my yoga practice to live in an easeful body, a peaceful mind and enjoy a useful life. Bringing that to others is a joyful service.
