A Detailed Practice
The Practice is to find an awearness of self. The purpose is to support the mind through the practice of asana /moving meditation/ which to most is the gateway to the yogic philosophies. We want to be able to sit for extended periods of time, moving past the distractions that come from the body, that come from the perceptions we have taken on, that come from anything that is not serving us. The goal is Self Realization. The knowledge and understanding of ones true self, where you become the most loved, the most supported, and it all comes from within. In 2019 we use the terms ‘Self-Love’, and ‘Live Your Best Life’.
