Tim Costa"I believe when you enter the Yoga studio, it becomes a sanctuary. When you come into your practice, you realize the body is the truest temple . The alter of your heart calls for your presence, your breath. I started to practice Yoga in the late 90’s, mainly to help my body recover from injuries of the lower spine and knees. What I started to get out of a regular practice was far beyond just feeling better physically. I noticed right away I was happier, more patient and felt I had more to give. After completing my 200 hr RYT at Shivananda Vedanta Center, I was encouraged to teach Yoga to some of my drum students, family and friends." "I have been playing music professionally and teaching percussion for over 20 years. My studies in music have taken me on several trips to West Africa, as well as Cuba to study at the National School of Folkloric Music in Havana. During my time studying music and dance, the focus has always been on the healing qualities of movement and sound. I incorporate Tibetan singing bowls and breathing exercises into every class. I am full of gratitude to be a part of this studio, this community. I hope to help encourage and inspire all to know Yoga as a way to realize the true qualities of Self. See you on the mat. Aloha, Namaste, Om." Classes Drum Yoga
