Move Mindfully With Inversion Poses This Week at LCY

Move mindfully from the temporary to the eternal, the impure to the pure, the painful to the pleasurable, the non- self to your true Self in this week’s inversion practice at Lake Center Yoga.

On the surface level of life we can often feel disconnected and fragmented. Reconnect with the real YOU this week in classes at LCY reinforcing the importance of moving with mindfulness, integration and cohesion. We will use intelligent alignment in a slow flow culminating in a variety of inversions such as handstand, headstand and shoulderstand. There are variations of all of these to accommodate any body issues. We will integrate integrate Yoga Sutra 2.5 to support the theme of moving mindfully through our practice.

Yoga Sutra 2.5 says, “Ignorance is confusing the permanent, the pure and the bliss of the unlimited Self with the limited individual self.”

The Four major forms of ignorance of this are:

Seeing the temporary as […]

Expand Your Love With Meditation

Join us at Friday Night 7:15pm Meditation Class and expand your LOVE capacity!

Meditation Mystic Osho says,  “Love has no basis unless it is grounded and centered in meditation. Any problem of love can be solved only when the problem of meditation has been solved, not before it, because it is really two non-meditative persons who are creating the problem. Two persons who are in confusion, who don’t know who they are will naturally multiply each other’s confusion, they magnify it. Unless meditation is achieved, love remains a misery.

When you are in love, don’t forget meditation… Love is only going to show you who you are, where you are. And it is good that love makes you alert…Now is the time to meditate. If love and meditation go together, you will have both wings, you will have a balance. Love and meditate, meditate and love, and slowly, slowly you will see […]

Listen With The Whole Body Instrument

Listen With the Whole Body Instrument and Yoga Sutra 2.4

This weeks practice will be a slow meditative flow that will attune your body/mind instrument to listen in order to follow the inner promptings and to recognize those magical moments of synchronicity beyond the Kleshas (obstacles, afflictions) and will include breathing practices to balance the nervous system and end with a meditation.

This practice will be supported by Yoga Sutra 2.4 which teaches us to recognize the layers of intensity of the Kleshas in order to reduce, weaken and inactivate them permanently.

Yoga Sutra 2.4 says, “Inability to accurately perceive what is True is the primary cause of afflictions which may be dormant, weak, controlled, or very influential. Subliminal conditions that prevent spiritual growth result from flawed perception and incomplete understanding.

Those afflictions which are dormant may be activated and cause problems in the future or may be eradicated when understanding is improved. Those […]
