Prounced Surya (SÜR-yah) Daya (Day – yah). Surya means sun in sanskrit, the energy of the sun opens space for you to grow into your full potential. In yoga we practice sun salutations, or surya namaskar to release negative energy and welcome in a positive influx, balancing the body and the mind. We do the practice to create space inside of ourselves for improved health and wellness, allowing us to flourish. Daya simply means compassion, the place we want you to connect with inside of yourself every time you come to your practice.
We have been in our community for 11 years, formerly operating as Rising Sun Yoga. In November of 2018, we decided to rename our studio as a celebration of our journey with you. Our new name honors the roots of what we have brought to our community, the rising of the sun, emerging now as Surya Daya as we begin a new chapter under new ownership with Amber Young.
Part of our mission at Surya Daya Yoga & Wellness is to hold a safe space for you to release tension and grow. We offer you yoga the way nature intended, for everybody and without judgement, honoring you exactly as you show up everyday.
Our Yoga Alliance certified yoga teachers offer many styles of yoga including Hatha, Kundalini, Yin, Restorative, Pilates, Mindfulness based practices as well as gentler styles of yoga and movement. We also offer private classes to help tailor your practice to your own individual needs, and workshops to help support you on your journey.
We teach from our hearts with a guiding principle of compassion, and our hope is to help you find that deeper place within of peace, health and vitality.
The Core Pillars of our studio are
- Respect for the wellness of body, mind and spirit
- To Uplift and Inspire
- Provide a safe space
