Fire Up With Mars Full Day Yoga and Meditation Retreat

Join us for the Fire Up With Mars Full Day Yoga Retreat at Lake Center Yoga on Sunday, April 13th from 9:30am-4:30pm.

This retreat will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore, cultivate and apply the awesome energy of Mars into our Yoga practice and into our lives! The full day retreat gives us the extra time needed to go deeper into not only the intellectual understanding which is important, but also a longer time to settle into a deeper experience.

Mars is the fire in us. It is our will to follow what we believe. It is that part of us that can get the job done. It is that part of us that can follow our instincts. Mars gives us courage, drive, initiative, good logic and the ability to engineer and build things. A good Mars makes you a good leader. If it is agitated one might not have full […]

Yoga As Alchemy

To compliment this past week’s Yoga Sutra 1.35 on the topic of subtle perceptions leading us to Self Realization, here is a 13 minute enlightening video talk by extrasensory luminary Teal Scott on the topic of Alchemy.

Yoga is known as a form of Alchemy, the conscious, intentional process of transmutation, purification and perfection of our limited self into unlimited Being, becoming a walking embodiment of the soul, rather than a muted reflection of it.

Alchemy as Yoga is a process of turning the smaller self into a higher form of itself. In Yoga as in Alchemy in general there can be no external alchemy without there first being internal alchemy.

Enjoy~

Don’t Be A “Yoga Sheep”

Don’t be a “yoga sheep” following the herded masses of so called yoga practitioners who stay stuck in the 3rd Limb of Yoga, Asana or yoga poses. Don’t forget the subtle perception of the Eighth Limb of Yoga- Self Realization and the practices to invoke that!  That is the big bottom of the yoga iceberg and most of real yoga. The other 7 Limbs of Yoga are practices to prepare us for this pinnacle of human life experience, Self-Realization.

The most familiar Limbs of Yoga the masses of “yoga sheep” do are the 3rd Limb, yoga poses or Asanas and maybe, maybe a little of the 4th Limb, Pranayama or breathing practices. In doing so they stay in the ignorance, density, competition and frustration of the body/mind vehicle and never progress to find the subtle perceptions leading to blissful Self-Realization of the True Self beyond the body/mind ego. In fact the […]

Subtle Perceptions and Back Bending Poses

Join us this week in classes at Lake Center Yoga and open up to subtle perceptions within your own Being via Back Bending Poses & Yoga Sutra 1.35.

Most of us come to Yoga seeking sanctuary. We realize how important it is to briefly step away from the demands of life and relax into a spacious quality of mind that allows us to be with ourselves as we are, without judgment. Insulated from the racket of demands and from the need to rush, we become quiet enough to hear the stirrings of our hearts. In this act of opening to subtle perceptions within, we replenish our energy and inspiration.

Connecting with the Truth of our selves, our hearts, our muscles, and our level of energy in any given moment is the height of subtle perception which takes us to exalted states of Being. With this experience we can have a steady union […]
