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 […]
Here is a wonderful two minute yogic video talk by cool self-realized guy David Spero on the nature of the universe, Being, Consciousness and Bliss (Satchidananda), and the Eighth Limb of Yoga, Samadhi.
- Go Super Nova and Be Blissful!
Within us are planes of existence, areas of consciousness, which are in absolute darkness. How are you going to penetrate and illuminate them? It’s useless to talk about the different stages of consciousness. You must be able to experience them, like you experience the state of dreams or sleep.
When the pranic energy is aroused and awakened through the yogic practices, it is circulated to these dark areas of consciousness. Kind of like when you do a yoga pose and you feel all the awakened energy go to the side you did the pose on and the other side is so dull and almost lifeless in comparison. It’s the same with consciousness. Once the energy is circulated to the dark areas of consciousness the inner city is illuminated and you are reborn into a new dimension of existence!
Hatha yoga is practiced in order to initiate a process in this physical body […]
Crown Chakra Yoga and Meditation Retreat With Sri Ekan
Sunday, September 15th- 9:30am-4:30pm
In Sanskrit,the Crown Chakra is called Sahasrara,or thousand petaled lotus. Like a king or queen whose crown signifies order in the kingdom, the Crown Chakra represents the ruling principle of life- the place where the underlying order and meaning of all things is perceived. It is the pervading consciousness that thinks, reasons, and gives form and focus to our activities. It is the true essence of Being as the awareness that dwells within. In the unconscious, it is the wisdom of the body. In the conscious mind, it is the intellect and our belief systems. In the superconscious, it is awareness of the Divine.
Come explore and experience the infinitely profound seat of cosmic consciousness known as the 7th Chakra or Crown Chakra. This Chakra connects us to divine intelligence and the source of all manifestation and spiritual illumination. It […]
Detox your body and mind with Twisting Poses, Forward Bends and Yoga Sutra 1.11 and move your spirit into a pristine space of pure energy and a blissful, high state of Consciousness!
Forward Bends slow you down so that you can imbibe Yoga Sutra 1.11 which teaches about memory as a form of knowledge. There are different forms of memory. In Yoga we practice discriminating between them to cultivate the influence of constructive and life-enhancing memories as causative influences (karma) to empower our yogic path to Higher Consciousness.
Twisting poses support us in this endeavor with their naturally detoxifying and purifying benefits. There are physiological benefits to the circulatory system and internal organs, structural benefits to the musculoskeletal system, and focusing, de-stressing benefits to our consciousness.
Yoga Master B.K. S. Iyengar describes twists as a “squeeze-and soak” action. The organs compressed during a twist, pushing out blood filled with metabolic by-products and toxins. […]
Dedicating more time to silence and meditation is so valuable in observing a Sattvic or pure mind rising out of the state of Samadhi, the Eighth Limb of Yoga. The practice of meditation distills and dissolves our attachment to words, concepts, and false identities that make up most of our speech, our hearing and our daily world.
Everyday we use words and images to describe objects, people or events. Our world is so attached and identified to the use of words, but really words are empty objects. They are only a perception of an actual object. Yoga Sutra 1.9 reminds us that a word is nothing but a combination of sounds used together to convey a meaning. An attribute, characteristic, or identity is then created from these words and images. Confusion, projections, arguments and insecurities are caused when we associate qualities such as good/bad, rich/poor, honest/dishonest, this or that with […]
Join us this week in classes for creative sequencing with a focus on cultivating the energy in the feet to ground you into the earth, dissolve imaginary concepts in the mind and create a Lightness of Being!
The first chapter of the Yoga Sutras concentrates on the problems encountered and ways to overcome them in our attempts to reach a state of Yoga or union. We’ll take the support of Yoga Sutra 1.9 as our theme. Yoga Sutra 1.9 enlightens us on the modification of the mind called vikalpahs or verbal delusion that follows from words with no corresponding reality. Sounds develop concepts and then the mind cements itself to a concept. These concepts have no corresponding reality but we begin to live them and this can create stress in the mind, body, life and even our yoga practice.
Here are some translations of Sutra […]
