Take The Great Vow (Maha Vrata) To Live The Yamas

In Asana Classes this week we’ll be activating Yoga Sutra 2.31 into our Being along with more core strengthening and Muscular Energy to shine out the 1st Limb of Yoga, the 5 Yamas of non-harming, truthfulness, non-stealing, conscious control and right use of our vital force and non-attachment in Balancing Poses.

B.K.S. Iyengar translates this sutra as: “The five components of Yama are called ‘mighty universal vows’, as they are not confined to class, place, time or concept of duty. They should be followed unconditionally by students of yoga in particular. They form the framework of rules on which society is based. This universal approach should also be applied to all the other component states of yoga without distinction of time, place or circumstances to lay down the precepts of a universal culture. They represent the ideal, responsible way for everyone to live.”

Meditation Master Sri Mooji says that without meditation, without […]

Get Calm Mastery at Friday Night Meditation Class 7:15-8:45pm

“Letting go can be as scary as dropping backward over a cliff with your eyes closed, but once you’re able to let go, you float in the arms of the interconnected universal fabric.”
Meditation Teacher Jack Kornfield

Many approaches to meditation might be obvious but unless you hear them spoken while deep in a receptive state they can be hard to bring into life. Come and enter that receptive state in meditation class!  As you follow your breath with the calm detachment of listening to a breeze through the trees you stop struggling with what you cannot change and ‘float in the arms of the interconnected universal fabric.’

Sri Ekan will guide you to this place of stillness and impermanence, calm mastery and deep understanding through the more subtle of the 8 Limbs of Yoga. In Asana Classes at LCY we incorporate all 8 Limbs but the focus is more on the first […]

2nd Chakra Full Day Astro Yoga Retreat at Lake Center Yoga

Our next  Full Day Astro Yoga and Meditation Retreat at Lake Center Yoga will be on Sunday, March 1st from 9:30am-4:30pm!

In this retreat you will enjoy a great morning yoga practice with asanas focusing on opening the Second Chakra, the Sacral Chakra, the Sacred Chakra, called Svadistana Chakra. The Second Chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment. The gift of this chakra is experiencing your life through feelings and sensations. The Second Chakra is the center of feeling, emotion, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy and connection. The energy of this Chakra allows you to let go, to move and to feel change and transformation occurring within your body. It allows you to experience this moment as it is, in its own fullness. Everything you create, a poem, a drawing or a website, originates from the energy of the Second Chakra. A person with an open Svadhistana Chakra is passionate, present in body, sensual, creative […]
