“Yoga is not about self-improvement, it’s about self-acceptance- You don’t need to be “fixed”; you simply need to reconnect with how wonderful and perfect you already are. Yoga is about remembering who you truly are.”-Cathryn Michon
WHAT IS YOGA?
Yoga is “to come together”, “to unite”, “to tie the strands of the mind together” “to attain what was previously unattainable” “acting in such a way that all of our attention is directed toward the activity in which we are currently engaged.” “to be one with the divine” Yoga attempts to create a state in which we are ALWAYS present-really present- in every action and moment.
I teach yoga because I want others to recognize the divinity that resides in each of us and all around us. To help you connect to your true self, and the universe so that you can live life to the fullest, happily and compassionately. To help you learn to be here now, releasing stress, and negative samaskaras (samaskaras are deeply rooted, negative behavioral patterns.), to know and find that it is possible to burn out old habits through yoga. To focus the mind on the present and heal, to live fully and compassionately for ourselves and all living beings!
“One of the basic reasons many people take up yoga is to change something about themselves: to be able to think more clearly, to feel better, and to be able to act better today than they did yesterday in all area of life. In these endeavors yoga can be of great help, and it requires no prerequisites that must be fulfilled before we set out on this path.”- The heart of Yoga.
Yoga is for EVERYONE and will unite the mind, body and spirit with the universal love that is in us and around us.
Yoga is a 5,000+ year old tradition. Yoga is harmonizing the breath with the body and mind, through pranayama (controlled breathing exercise, asanas (poses and meditaiton), and dristi (point of focus)
“Yoga is a the process by which the impossible becomes possible and the possible over a long period of time becomes easy. CHANGE does not happen quickly, start with the impossible and allow it’s difficulty to teach you.” – Kino MacGregor
