Yoga poses are great to strengthen and relax the body, but there is so much more to Yoga than a workout. Most of us are accustomed to looking outside of ourselves for fulfillment. We are living in a world that conditions us to believe that outer achievements can give us what we want. Yet again, and again our experiences show us that nothing external can completely fulfill the deep longing within for “something more.” We get caught up in the doing rather than being, in action rather than awareness. It is said in the Bible, “Be still and know that I am God.” In these few words the essence of the science of Yoga is captured. This 5,000+ year old wisdom offers a direct means to still the natural turbulence of thoughts and the restlessness of the body that prevents us from knowing who we really are. The word “Yoga” translates to “union” or “unite” – the individual consciousness or soul with the Universal Consciousness or Spirit. Connect to your soul intention through the gift of Yoga.
