If you've been looking for a yoga class to attend or want to deepen your practice this is the meetup for you.
Committing to a yoga practice can help with your spiritual growth, as through yoga we find our mind body spirit connection.
Through the conscious art of breathing we are able to slow down the body's physiological & emotive reactions and processes and really connect with spirit & our soul purpose. The yogic path incorporates the 8 limbs, of which asana(poses), meditation, and pranyama(breathing) are only 3 of the areas we practice.
We will be connecting with Mother Earth & the spirits of Elders & Ancestors passed, opening our HEARTS in GRATITUDE. We will celebrate the SUN with sun salutations in blessing that we are able to greet another day. Humbly we will recognize and thank each of the elements for the part that they play in our lives. We will ground our Energy with Mother Earth, respectfully sharing her energy, wisdom & strength. Many of the asanas that we will practice have the ability to open and balance our chakras and clear any energetic blockages. We will connect & share energy as a group in compassion and love. This is a breath focussed class, suitable for all ages & stages. Participants are encouraged to set sankalpas(intentions) and to practice with ahimsa(non-violence). The class always concludes with a beautiful healing guided meditation. Please bring your own mat (if you have)
Hope to see you there!
Namaste& big love
