"The effort to understand yourself is yoga. Be a yogi, give your life to it, brood, wonder, search, till you come to the root of error and to the truth beyond the error."
- Nisargadatta Maharaj
Yoga, as practiced here at Ray of Light, is a way of life. It is a journey into mindfulness, self acceptance, and non judgment. Yoga practiced here is a blend of Classical Yoga or Raja Yoga and Hatha Yoga yielding a beautiful combination of moving the body through asanas with focus on the breath and emphasizing the benefits of meditation for spiritual self-realization. Yoga is a movement toward enlightenment.
Although is has experienced a great rise in popularity for the physical benefits of toning and lengthening muscles, the practice of yoga is much more than a physical one. We help you explore layers of yourself and your relationship to the world around you.
We have all the gear you need to practice the physical movements (asanas) safely and comfortably. All you need is yourself and to be willing. Dress comfortably. Leave your cell phones and your to do lists at the door.
Are you ready to expand your physical and spiritual being? Join us for a yoga class where you will learn to be open to new ideas and challenges.
Empowerment is about having the ability and confidence to turn towards and really feel the moment deeply – no matter what that moment involves. During challenges we often turn away from feeling the exhaustion or the work we put in – instead we just try and get through it.
Turning up and turning towards! That is empowerment! Turning your pain, weaknesses and vulnerability into strength, connectedness and presence. This creates confidence that you can be with life, as it moves through you, your experience of it. Once you can feel deeply, there is no need to turn away from anything that asks for your attention. You will be able to deal with life head-on.
During this class we will incorporate our HAPPY essential oil blend to empower us.
