Stand In Your Abundance

Become stable in your Being and merge with the second Yama in Yoga Sutra 2.37, Asteya: Non-Stealing, as you access the abundance of your inner and outer treasures in classes this week at Lake Center Yoga.

The energy meridians in your feet affect your whole body and mind and ultimately spirit. When we are constricted through the feet we constrict on all levels and feel a need to grab and covet what we feel lacking in be it physical, mental or emotional. We’ll use the feet to align and enliven the abundance in our lives that is present in us and all around us.

The feet can be the gateway to alignment of the joints, balanced action in the muscles and ease in the Asanas.  In our practices this week you will mindfully focus on the actions of the feet as well as balancing the weight on the feet as the foundation […]

Immerse Yourself in Satya, Soul Truth To Express Life From

Do you think you are doing Yoga because you do yoga poses?

Do you tell people you do yoga since you attend asana classes?

Well, the Truth (Satya, Truth, our theme for the week) is that you’re NOT doing yoga! Yoga is union of body, mind and spirit, not just about the body. Asanas, or yoga poses are a very small part of Yoga barely mentioned in the Yoga Sutras. Asana, the physical poses are the 3rd of the 8 Limbs of Yoga.

The beauty of LCY is that in our classes, although the focus is asana, we do touch on all the other 7 Limbs. It would be so incomplete not to. So in our classes you do actually go beyond the rampant, physical only asana classes which are actually NOT yoga. Most people can’t focus beyond the physical so you have to be at a more refined awareness to even come […]

Twist It Out!

Join us this week and delve deeper into twisting asanas by activating the back body in standing poses, standing twists and seated twists.

Twists are postures that generally involve moving the shoulder girdle to face in an opposing direction in relation to the hips. There are different twists that target the upper, middle and lower portions of the torso, all having heir own unique set of health benefits.

This week we’ll access core power in the usually dull and collapsed mid to upper back by moving the back ribs forward and taking the belly and pelvis back as we go deep into twisting asanas.

Benefits: Twists improve digestive function by flooding your digestive organs with fresh oxygen and nutrients via fresh blood flow. This also cleanses the cells of any built up waste and so detox’s stagnated impurities and moves them through the digestive tract due to the compression that comes with twisting. […]
