Founded by American yoga master teacher, Rod Stryker, ParaYoga is one of the country's fastest growing and most respected approaches to Yoga today. “Para” means supreme, ancient, highest, the culmination of all effort. Rod developed ParaYoga from his more than thirty-five years of intensive study and practice to give students and teachers––of all levels––access to the complete power, spirit, and tradition of Yoga.
ParaYoga draws from the larger science of yoga to unlock the vast potentials of your body, mind, and spirit to help you achieve your best life possible. Thus, unlike many of today’s approaches, which emphasize a strictly physical approach, ParaYoga seamlessly weaves the practices of asana, pranayama, bandha, and a variety of approaches to meditation to help you realize your full potential.
Despite its ancient roots, ParaYoga practice is highly accessible and open to all levels of students. Whether you're taking a class, workshop, or ParaYoga Master Training (which is open to all levels), enjoying one of Rod’s meditation/relaxation CDs, or whether you're a new student or Certified Yoga Teacher, you'll quickly discover why ParaYoga is helping to reshape and enrich the way people practice yoga.
