'All foundations rest upon the earth-the universal ground for all we do.
To connect with the earth, to be grounded in the biological reality of existence.
Our bodies are the home of our spirit ' Anodea Judith
Yoga an ancient tradition for the now
What is it you wish to get from your yoga? Do you want it to serve you like any other exercise system? Or to offer your something new?
First founded by the ancients before dissection and modern anatomy and in hand with the Hindi believe system Raja yoga offered a way through meditation, breath, self observation and right doing as well as movement to connect us with the realisation that we are perfect as we are. A realisation that is inseparable from the wider environment. In doing so we give ourselves an opportunity to regenerate, physically, emotionally and cognitively effecting our lives for the better.
What is largely practiced as yoga is only a segment of what yoga wholly is. It is natural that at first we develope awareness through the body. However, it is important to note that yoga is more than an exercise system to strengthen muscles or release joints.
Yoga is an opportunity to be our own teacher. As we learn through our bodies we feel overlooked sensations. We start to observe these discoveries and they in turn guide our observations of ourselves, our relationships and our surroundings.
'It is possible to have a different attitude in which a new intelligence, not imposed by authority but, inspired from interest, attention and sensitivity, will emerge and in which body and mind, fused in one single action are collaborating together' Vanda Scaravelli
