I encourage all yogis to start working on the Yamas Niyamas we looked at last week please see the form below. Those who started please pick a different Yama and Niyama this week to work on.
So why as yogis do we learn about yogic life style, ie Yamas, Niyamas? Is it to make everyone the same. like a cult? The answer is NO. We do not want yogis to live in such a restricted way that we cannot express our creative individuality but we do want you to start developing self-discipline and change your life style to promote a healthy mind and body because without the support of our lifestyle, life becomes uphill battle.
I was asked the question this week why is it when I eat unhealthily, do little yogic or exercise do I feel dull, lifeless, tired and down on myself. Answer: It is because you are increasing the Tamas Guna in your body (look back at the blog on the Gunas) which creates the slowing down, heavy, dull feeling in the mind and body.
This is why we encourage you all to come on a Retreat. We love teaching them also. But for a few days or weeks we live a Sattvic lifestyle. What does that mean? Well we eat healthy locally grown foods, freshly cooked to balance and compliment the Kundalini Yoga program during the day. We spend plenty of time in nature, silence to soak in the pranic energy as well as soaking in peace. We do kundalini yoga, walking and breathing practice to get you back in touch with your body, to feel the lightness of being. We use early morning meditation, star gazing and gong to lighten your vibration so you leave the Retreat feeling radiant and more able to cope with the stresses and strains of life.
