Private yoga & Meditation

Traditionally, yoga was almost always shared on a one-to-one basis as a means of direct transmission from teacher to student. The deeper my own study and practice grows, the more I realize the benefit - if not the need - for offering this highly customizable approach. We are each living in very unique bodies, and operating with very unique minds. So much personalized information must go into creating a practice that can efficiently and elegantly address these diverse, unique, needs. Private sessions give us the opportunity to do just that.

Let's get to know one another so I can learn how best to support you, and prescribe a practice which will empower you to heal and begin living the life of your dreams.

The Yoga Sutra is the living source wisdom of the Yoga tradition. Using it as a guide, we can unlock the hidden power and experience the promise of Yoga in our life. The Yoga Sutra is as fresh today as it was 2,200 years ago when it was discovered by the sage Patanjali. By applying its living wisdom in our practice, we can achieve the purpose of life - lasting fulfillment and ultimate freedom. 

Every time I read Patanjali's Yoga Sutras I am astounded by the wisdom they contain.  They are an intricate, in depth manual for maximizing our experience of humanity.  Many of us in the west begin our foray into yoga outside of the context of the Yoga sutras, and so miss out on the profound possibility yoga contains.  

In Patanjali's first chapter of the Yoga Sutra, he dives deeply into the nature of the human mind - its promises and its pitfalls. He explores the nature of suffering, as well as revealing what is known as the 'secret' of the yoga sutra, the true nature of the self, divine, radiant, self-luminous joy beyond the reach of all suffering.

For this satsanga we will use Pandit Rajmani Tigunait's commentary on the Yoga Sutras as our guide. Panditji's commentary is practitioner oriented, fully grounded in a living tradition. It shares the essence of Pandit Tigunait's rigorous scholarly understanding of the Yoga Sutra through the filter of experiential knowledge gained through decades of advanced yogic practices and enriched by the gift of living wisdom he received from the masters of the Himalayan Tradition.

Imagine a life free from pain and sorrow—infused with joy and tranquility.
The ancient yogis called this state vishoka, and insisted that we all can reach it. The key is a precise set of meditative techniques designed to unite mind and breath, and turn them inward.

Embodiment through Mantra

 

Embodiment is a buzz word in the yoga world these days. But what does it really mean? It means transitioning your engagement with yoga from a primarily intellectual endeavor to one of direct experience. The intellect is subject to doubt. Direct experience is undeniable.

 

Embodiment means that you are a living, breathing expression of your practice in day to day life. It means that all of life is an experience of the sacred, even the most mundane moments like folding laundry, checking email or driving your car.

How do we transition from the intellect to direct experience? For me, Mantra has been the key. Mantra invites the thinking mind to rest, held in a nurturing cocoon by the sacred Sanskrit sounds received by the Rshis thousands of years ago. These Mantras are living and breathing vibratory expressions of various aspects of the Divine. They live and breathe in creation, they live and breathe within us.

 

Mantra awakens us to the presence of these energies. They do so in a way which protects and expands the mind, and accelerates the process of enlightenment.
