So you do Yoga?
Updated: Feb 28
Oh honey, you cannot do yoga, yoga is your natural state. It's not meant to make you a different person, it aims to help you return to your true peaceful, equanimous self. See, the fundamental purpose of yoga is to cultivate balance in the body and mind, in order to live in harmony with the environment. But the beauty of yoga is that whether you are young or old, overweight or fit, an erudite or a beginner, it will calm your mind and strengthen your body. So let's roll out that mat and join the millions of practitioners around the globe. Yoga is for everyone.
Yoga's history can be traced back to over 5,000 years ago in Northern India and the word itself was first mentioned in the oldest sacred texts, the Rig Veda. This collection of texts was used by the Brahmans who slowly refined yoga and documented it in the Upanishads, which most renowned is the Bhagavad-Gita. The idea of ritual sacrifice was internalized, sacrifice of the ego through self-knowledge, action and wisdom.
So your mat is rolled out and you are ready to do the yoga thing, because it is commonly associated with poses, known as asanas. What if I tell you that asanas represent 1/8 in our exploration of the eight limbs of yoga? In Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, the "eight limbs" are basically guidelines on how to live a meaningful and purposed life. So the journey inward begins with outward actions, and incorporating asanas in our daily life gives us strength and flexibility of mind and body, to sit in stillness. And it sure takes a lot of thoughtful movement to be still. Ultimately, when the prerequisites have been met, the actual process of the inward journey will begin.
So I guess my question to you is: Are you ready to start your journey to your true self and are you ready to dedicate yourself to unconditional self-love?
This will be the greatest adventure of your life and I would be honored to walk that path with you, by your side, and to guide you towards this meaningful and lasting transformation.
