Tip Toe Through Your Yoga

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.

Keep Your Focus with Friday Night Meditation Class

“Keep your focus. Be the person you always want to be.”
Meditation Master Gurumayi Chidvilasananda

Seclude yourself on Friday nights at the sanctuary of Lake Center Yoga from 7:15pm-8:45pm for a mini meditation retreat and reconnect with the person YOU always want to be.  Transformation of outer circumstances actually comes from a pure energy within us which expands back out and creates magic in relationships, job opportunities and success in all areas.  To access that transformative energy we MUST meditate!  There is no way around it.

When that energy is pulsing strong from you and keeps building in you with each meditation session you will just witness in awe the magic in your life. Circumstances you tried to change for years will melt into this energy and the alchemy between the circumstance or relationship at hand and the expanded sacred energy inside you will take things to a higher level. It’s true! Try […]

Yoga Sutra 1.8 and Standing Poses

Yoga Sutra 1.8 as the class theme of the week will serve to move through limiting concepts and illusions about what you can and cannot do in yoga poses. This along with a focus on Standing Poses will stabilize you into direct perception of your possibilities! Standing poses build stamina while increasing flexibility. Through intelligent alignment in Standing Poses poses your internal organs become healthier, your nervous system becomes stronger and you gain more vitality while heightening your mental awareness. Standing Poses help you to chill out and go beyond a flawed sense of self-identity by grounding you into your wholeness and bringing equilibrium and harmony to move you beyond the illusion of limitation in your practice!

Try Asana Classes AND the Friday Night Meditation Class and see how that combo really takes you beyond your incomplete perceptions to transcend the illusional sense of Self!
