Yoga is not merely gymnastics, nor is it an exclusively religious practice.
Yoga is the ultimate path to Self-discovery and empowerment.
One that is accessible to anyone with the desire to return Home.
The word Yoga literally means ‘union’. Here, we are speaking of the union between Oneself and Divine Consciousness. This can be perceived in many ways, but ultimately it is through recognising the oneness of all, that we begin to merge with the Whole - naturally leading toward compassion, love for Self and others, and even a sense of pure bliss.
There are many paths toward reaching this state of Yoga - Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga and Jnana Yoga, to name a few - however, the style of Yoga we are most familiar with here in the West today is Hatha Yoga. It is from the science of Hatha Yoga, that most modern-day Yoga styles originate.
‘Ha’ ‘Tha’ Yoga is a primarily physical system, in which we manipulate the energies within the body to achieve a state of balance. Balancing the Solar and Lunar - Male and Female - Yin and Yang - polarities within our Being, allows us to come into harmony with the rest of the Universe, and ultimately touch our own true Nature. This is done through the methodology of Asana (postures), Pranayama (breath control) and Meditation. As we progress in our practice, other useful techniques are incorporated including Bandhas (locks), Mudras (seals) and Mantra (sound).
The paradox is that, the end result of all of this ‘doing’ is actually an ‘undoing’. Through practice the layers of conditioning are removed, which allows the Light of Being to shine forth into the world.
I have been blessed to receive truly authentic teachings in the field of Tantric Hatha Yoga, and it is a joy to bring these very real teachings to the World.
If you are ready to dive into the Self, and fully enrich your life, then please find information regarding my upcoming classes and workshops here.
I cannot wait to see you on the mat!
