Yoga can transform your body, it's true. It can make us more flexible, healthy, and toned. The problem is that even when our bodies are stronger and leaner we still feel incomplete.
We still want to be thinner, taller, have more money, a bigger house etc. And there's nothing wrong with getting what we want, but wouldn't it be great to be content even when things aren't working out perfectly? The ancient Yogic texts and Master Yogis suggest that when practiced as intended, Yoga can help us get there.
They propose that when Yoga is practiced on the inside AND the outside, it can end all unpleasant mental and physical experiences, forever. Imagine, being truly happy all the time... That's what yoga can do.
We emphasize that asana, the physical Yoga practice, is only one of the 8 limbs of Yoga as outlined by Master Patanjali in the great Yoga Sutras. These physical poses are intended to be practiced with the first two limbs, the Yamas and Niyamas (ethical practices). This means that we must live our practice if we want to experience its full benefits.
We can take our Yoga off the mat and into the world. It's something we can infuse into every activity, 24 hours a day. So, all of our classes go beyond the physical, incorporating meditation and practices designed to strengthen our kindness and compassion. They provide students with time-tested wisdom that's been around for thousands of years. There's no dogma. Just practices to help you become healthy and happy.
And of course, you'll get a fit, healthy body in the process. Join us for yoga and meditation classes where you can unplug, and relax at this little oasis located in the heart of Piermont, NY.
