Sound healing is a form of healing that uses vibrations to address physical, mental, and spiritual issues. Different emotions vibrate at different frequencies, and blocked or unexpressed emotions can lead to illness. Sound healers use instruments such as bowls and tuning forks that vibrate at specific frequencies to address specific emotions and release trapped negative emotions. The human body is a good conductor of vibrations because it is mostly water and sound healing has numerous benefits for the mind and body. You can experience this incredible process for yourself in a private or group sound healing session.
Reiki is a non-invasive healing technique that promotes balance and restoration of the mind and body by using the touch of a healer's hand.

Nicole Zornitzer is also a certified Reiki Level 2 Energy Healer in accordance with the Usui System of Natural Healing, with lineage under Dr. Mikao Usui.
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian practice that emphasizes total wellness by balancing the body, mind, spirit, and environment. It treats disease by addressing imbalances or stresses in a person's consciousness through lifestyle interventions and natural therapies, such as a special diet, herbal remedies, massage therapy, yoga, and meditation. Ayurvedic counseling aims to reduce symptoms, eliminate impurities, increase resistance to disease, and increase harmony in life using herbs, oils, and spices. In India, Ayurveda is considered a form of medical care on par with other forms of medicine. Nicole Zornitzer is a Certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant, C.A.L.C, having received her graduate degree from Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) in 2020.

Our Sparta Shala features an Iyengar Rope wall, developed by Yogi B.K.S. Iyengar, which originated from Indian homes using ropes to deepen yoga practices and hold inversions for extended periods. Rope walls allow practitioners to deepen poses and assist those who are stiff, weak or unable to perform certain asanas independently. They are also beneficial for accessing hard-to-reach muscles and holding inversions longer.
Hot yoga is an amazing practice. Aside from generating heat, the panels installed in all of Niyama's Shalas provide a number of health benefits, including improving blood circulation, strengthening the cardiovascular system, detoxifying the body, aiding weight loss and eliminating cellulite, killing bacteria and parasites, boosting the immune system, helping with pain management, and calming down the autonomic nervous system which can relieve insomnia, depression and anxiety.
