RussaYog Yoga Studio
Address: 1905 Cliff Drive, Santa Barbara, CA
Contact: Phone: (805) 448-1320  /  Email: talk [at]
Website:  |  Yoga Links
Instructors: Teresa Singh, Jasprit Singh
Yoga Style: Yoga with ropes
Description: RussaYog incorporates the strength and power of weight training, and the balance and flexibility of traditional yoga. Using a rope, you will experience a complete body workout, taking your mind and body to a heightened state of awareness and fitness...
RussaYog asans are specifically developed to address the challenges of the modern lifestyle: On a physical level; On a mental level; On a contemplative level.
The solution is not more busy-ness or faster, harder work, but more thoughtful actions. As the RussaYogi will immediately sense, the asans will demand strength and balance that will challenge the mind and body. It can offer challenges to a person who has just enough strength to stand up from a lying position by holding onto ropes. Yet it can offer challenges to the strongest Olympic athlete as well. In fact, the asans are designed to allow one to exercise muscles at a level that even exercise machines costing thousands of dollars cannot!
Like traditional yoga, RussaYog takes the yogi and gently places him/her in an asan where gravity is manipulated (through the rope) to create forces in multiple directions. With various forces pulling/pushing in dozens of directions the yogi achieves a choherent balance.
The yogi will see that RussaYog is especially useful for the upper body posture. It builds strength in the core muscles as well as shoulders, chest, and gripping muscles. At the end of a session the yogi should not only feel a sense of heightened balance and symmetry, but also a "pump" that is usually associated with weight training.
