Thank you for visiting the Tao of Light website.

On the personal side of things, this is a gathering place for Sherri and I to share information, photos and current events with our family and friends. Much of the photos, movies and information can be found in our Social Media sub menu links under the (about us) menu. 

On the future side of things, the site outlines our concept for studio's that combine Yoga, Meditation and Flotation Tank offerings accommodating flexible membership programs. Each area offers individual and group setting schedules along with seasonal off-site retreats for advanced experiences.

Each offering from Tao of Light Yoga is unique and separates our studios from the norm.

As an example, most Yoga studios in the United States today focus exclusively on the physical side of Yoga, almost like another flavor of aerobics with little balance on the meditative nature of the Yoga experience, while this physical preparation is good for your health and can lead one to deeper meditative states, this one-sided approach may emphasize an egocentric based physical paradigm which can be counterproductive to the ultimate path of Yoga.

Pantanjali saw the asana attribute as only one of the eight limbs of yoga, and by no means more important or emphasized. This limb simply has become the most popular and commercially successful in many western markets.

Toning the entire body

When most people think of yoga, they think of a gentle, relaxed stretch. This is not without reason: yoga's stress-relieving properties are well-documented. People often forget, however, that yoga is an exercise and does promote muscle toning, endurance and flexibility.

Increased core stability

Core stability is essential for proper load balance within the spine, pelvis, and kinetic chain. The so-called core is the group of trunk muscles that surround the spine and abdominal viscera.
