"Liberation Yoga is founded on the belief that every human being can and should be free." This motto sums up the philosophy of Liberation Yoga, while the center's practices put the motto into motion. Here, students can free themselves of stress and tension during classes that incorporate the mind-body-spirit connection through deep breathing, core-strengthening moves, and meditation. By practicing the ancient technique, students can also lower their risk of heart attacks and relinquish dependencies while increasing their self-awareness and sense of community with other practitioners. These benefits extend outside of classes as well. In the Wellness Center, visitors can further their healing during massage and reflexology sessions, reducing muscle aches and calming their minds from mentally cursing their muscle aches.

After earning his master's degree in traditional Chinese medicine, Peter W. Tricarico honed his skills in several Shanghai hospitals and clinics.
