Yoga philosophy acknowledges our multidimensional existence, that our being comprises of many layers or koshas, the basics of which are the mental body, the physical body, the emotional body and the spiritual body. Unfolding to the experience of each of these layers is essential for our health and well-being.
Physical yoga practice or hatha as it is called, is important to communicate with our physical body by routinely moving and stretching it.

Sometimes I skip staying busy when slowing down with some yoga likely would replenish mind, body and soul.That is on occasion.I appreciate the “wow factor” when I am in the mode and revelations and freeing the breath flow in my practice.
With pleasant anticipation I was ready to host Meditation Group.I looked forward to the synergy of group meditation.I looked forward to renewing a mindset of letting go of limiting thought patterns and beliefs.As we sat I was ready to be “an empty vessel,” clear for meditation.I was greeted with insight. Our post meditation discussion included laug…

It is with delight that the hip strengthening exercises I implemented a little over a month ago I note are now completed with ease and confidence by all in class.
A new exercise along with following through with the ancient wisdom of yoga poses indeed is a refreshing re-set for the mind, body and soul.
Join me this evening at 5:45, and every third Wednesday for Prana Flow Wind Down Slow Yoga.  Warm up, Vinyasa, and ease in to keeping the muscles warm and comfortable for winding down.
“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.”
