  • Activation, Integration, Actualization

    Activation, Integration, Actualization is a continuation of the Master Series workshops that I offer. The intention of the series is to broaden our time together allowing us to dive deeper into the multifaceted aspects of yoga.

    This chapter of the series is a look at cultivating our power, not only for our benefit, but as a way to serve the world around us. Our current model of power is one of a win/lose mentality. This paradigm supports the progress of some through diminishing others. Perhaps the key to unravel this story is to realize that the win/lose struggle begins on the inner level.

  • August Theme: Balanced Individuality

    This month in class, we are continuing to explore the concept of the ego. Deepening our study, let us examine the ego through the lens of chakra theory.

    According to the classical teachings of yoga, the ego or ahamkara is considered to be one of the five obstacles (kleshas) that is a direct cause of our experience of suffering. The ego is what is responsible for our sense of separateness or individuality; “I am different from you and my environment.” In the experience of separateness, we no longer are a part of the whole. Returning to wholeness is the story of yoga.

  • The Importance of Puranic Literature

    Shiva is considered to be the first guru of yoga. He is the Lord of the Yogis and the Lord of Auspiciousness. He is often depicted sitting in a meditation posture, holding a trident with snakes around his neck. The snakes represent the fact that Shiva welcomes all as his devotees, even those that are considered to be the outcasts and misfits of society. He is the destructive force in nature that clears out one’s lower nature leaving room for positivity and growth to flourish.

  • Guru and Sadhaka

    For many of us, we have spent the majority of our lives identifying ourselves with and defining ourselves from the material world that surrounds us. Great masters that have transcended the world of matter, names and forms have taught the rest of us that the tools that we use to collect information, namely, the mind, intellect and senses, are limited. Therefore, these tools cannot answer the deeper transcendental questions in life such as: What is the purpose of life? Where am I going? What happens to me after death?
