The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, one of the main texts from which modern yoga comes from, states that:
Yogaḥ citta vṛtti nirodhaḥYoga Sutras of Patanjali 1.2
The restraint of the modifications of the mind-stuff is YogaTranslated by Sri Swami Satchidananda
Yoga was originally about reducing the turbulence of the mind. This was done by bringing awareness to the body and the breath – mainly through meditation.
Practicing postures or asana is one of the most common forms of yoga practiced in modern western society. It is a wonderful way of reducing turbulence in the mind by connecting the body and breath in a moving meditation and bringing the mind to focus on the present moment.
In my classes we will practice asana (postures), pranayama (breath regulation), dharana (concentration), and dhyana (meditation) to build strength and mobility in your body as well as helping to bring calmness and resilience to the mind.
Private 1:1s and small group classes can be organised. Please email or call me for more information.
