THE ESSENCE OF YOGA
By practicing yoga poses we are able to clear the stuck physical areas, which then gives us mental clarity as well. It becomes easier to focus, to concentrate and to make efficient effective choices.
The poses and breath help you to experience first hand, in your own body, how to start to bring balance into your life. Physically, mentally and emotionally. Using the body to help break through any stuck stiff area’s that are holding stress and or creating pain. These stuck areas are a distraction which slow us down and keep us from being the best that we can be.
The only place that your intuition works, is in the present moment. Yoga techniques help us to bring our awareness into here and now to help you to break old patterns and stay open to the new creative solutions available to you. By learning to increase your ability to focus, observe and bring awareness to any situation you are able to reduce stress and create clarity in almost any situation.
We teach based on the principles of Pralaya Yoga. This type of yoga was created by Robert Boustany, and it's based on the idea that balancing your joints will create an optimal flow of energy through your body. This balance can be created by combining two elements, which are releasing connective tissue and strengthening weak muscles. For example: when your hamstring (muscle in the back of the upper leg) is tight, most types of yoga will focus on stretching this muscle. In Pralaya Yoga we believe that it's better to strengthen quadriceps (muscle in the front of the upper leg), so that the hamstring is given more space to relax and will automatically become less tight. This tactic can be used anywhere in the body.
All of our teachers teach based on the core values of Pralaya Yoga. Would you like to know more about this type of yoga? Join our Pralaya yoga classes on Tuesday evening at 18u30, Wednesday evening at 20u00 or Thursday evening at 18u30..
