School Info

The word Nirmana is a Sanskrit word that translates in many different ways in the East, commonly 'change', 'transformation', 'without pride' and it truly speaks to the deeply transformative qualities of this ancient and most sacred practice. Nirmana Yoga Loft came to be out of the desire to be of service in our community, doing our part to be a light in the darkness. With the rapidly growing divisive nature of our present reality, the practice of Yoga, which translates directly as 'to yoke' or 'to unite', is more important now than ever before.

Union is at the core of the heart & soul of the practice of Yoga. Not only the union that takes place within the microcosm of Self via mind, body, spirit, but also the macrocosmic union of our Communities, our Countries, and our Planet. Yoga is an ancient practice of self-realization, a mental science of knowing oneSelf so that we may realize for ourSelves the Oneness of which we belong to. The concept of Unity is not just a fluffy term used in new age, esoteric, spiritual materialism but is a matter of understanding recognized within Quantum Science and other scientific insights.

We created this space for you, or in the spirit of Oneness, for US. To provide a safe space for personal discovery, spiritual practices, and respite from the traumas and challenges we face along our path. This is an inclusive space that views all sentient beings as One and we seek to revive the deep, sacred roots of Yoga that the Western World has long forgotten. We'd like to invite you to join our community, to share in the ineffable Oneness that we are all a part of, and to truly come home to yourSelf. "We are all just walking eachother home." - Ram Dass
