Ahimsa: Respect Leads to Unity

If you are reading this, you have probably already embarked upon the journey of Yoga – the process of overcoming separation to experience Oneness. The process is not new, but quite ancient in fact. The system of yoga as we know it today was codified by the Master Yogi, dancer, doctor, and grammarian, Patanjali. In his Yoga Sutras, Patanjali gives us a tested method towards yoga, most well-known as the eight-limbed path, that begins with the ethical precept of ahimsa. Read More

Pose of the Month - Reclined Bound Angle Pose

The practice of ahimsa asks us to pay close attention to the relationship we have with ourselves and others. One way in which we can begin that inquiry is through stillness.

Chandra's Embrace

We have begun the transition into shorter and darker days. As the curtain of the evening sky lowers earlier throughout autumn and trees shed their leaves, Nature calls us to follow her pattern of transition; therefore, cultivating balance in our lives becomes necessary to maintain inner and outer steadiness. This transition has us unpack our vacation suitcases of summer, and roll out our yoga mats, returning to our practice. We let go of summer’s spontaneity and revisit the roots of our families in harvest and feast. The light foods of summer are replaced with autumn’s earthy, grounding bounty. Ultimately, we find that the outpour of summer energy transforms into groundedness. One way in which Nature provides that steadiness during transition is through the gravitational pull of the moon or Chandra. Read More

The Roots of Fall's Sustenance

This September clearly and decisively cycled into fall. And just like that, we have found ourselves in a transition into the darker months. Maybe it’s the mountain girl in me, but I welcome the change of the seasons. It’s as though my body, mind, and energy have fully experienced all that summer has offered. And when the transition occurs, I find my arms open to fully embrace the change and a desire to return to the roots of my yoga practice. Read More

Pose of the Month - Ksepana Mudra

As the seasons change, we find the urge to move inward and let go of our old patterns so that we can clear the path. We often consider ways to break patterns and habits in our asana practice. But we tend to repeat the same cycles within our habits of meditation and mudra. Read More
