Cultivating Breath, Mind & Body Consciousness
You are the mantra. --His Holiness Swami Chidanand Saraswati
My Style of Yoga
Yoga Answers the Question
Yoga is about alignment, but for what exactly? Certainly, studying the bones and muscles is important. But all too often many do so for appearance or to conquer some limitation.
Some see yoga as relaxing the mind. Meditation, a form of yoga, is used these days to "relax," only to jump back into the poison of busy, busy, busy.
Yoga carefully considers the body and mind, but for more. Yoga is about union of body, mind & OTHER to answer the question: Who am I?
In my private yoga classes, I look closely at:
how your body works to understand its potentials and limitations
how you relate to your body in these states
the patterns of your mind as they engage with the body, better known as attachments and aversions
your energy style, which has a lot to do with modern day definitions of depression and anxiety
your breathing patterns, which contribute to anxiety and other unhealthy conditions
how you understand yourself in light of the bigger picture
