Just as any physical structure needs a solid foundation to endure the forces of nature, the seeds of yoga must be planted with a firm and tender hand if they are to bloom with everlasting vitality. Yoga is the practice of conscious embodiment. It is a choice to awaken into clearer understanding within ourselves so that we may experience life more fully. Most people can feel the difference between a movement grounded in truth versus one that lacks authenticity. A healthy approach to yoga is no different than a healthy approach to any relationship. If we want something to grow beautifully we must treat it with loving care. Breath awareness creates space for truthful presence. This is the seed. From here we observe our thoughts and begin to take responsibility for our actions, clearing the soil that nourishes the root. Yoga postures are external shapes which express our inner state of being. When we approach a posture from breath, with alertness, ease, passion and receptivity, we empower ourselves to approach all aspects of life in the same way. With grounded intentions we discover that the branches, or ‘limbs’ of yoga practice begin to develop all together, with each part directly and intricately relating to the other. The key is remaining rooted with a positive and patient attitude for the long term process so we can enjoy the organic unfolding and go with the flow! - Love, La Mer Hot 8 Foundations Workshop (4 Week Series) January 31, 2015 - February 21, 2015 Beverly Hills Studio Location Click here to sign up!
