When we can practice yoga from the heart we can open more channels and connect more deeply to ourselves. Once we can connect more deeply to ourselves then we can connect more deeply to others and our surroundings. It all starts with our heart.

We are all here for a short amount of time on this earth. Here are some ideas to help make this time lightfull and open.

  1. Do not judge. Wake up each day and make a commitment to yourself that you will not judge experiences, people or things. This will help open a path of enlightened living.
  2. Do something for someone everyday. This practice of service or giving to others will create much abundance in your life. This can be something as small as a smile, prayer or compliment.
  3. Take time daily for YOU. Giving to yourself will ensure that you tank is full and you have enough to give to others.

How do you seek your truth? We see our truth through self love and acceptance. Understanding that we are not all perfect and it is the imperfection that makes us beautiful.

How do you live your yoga? We live our yoga by practicing daily and moving with ease and flow in our life.

Here is a arial pic of the Sangha we are building in Nova Scotia.

Sangha is a word in Pali and Sanskrit meaning “association”, “assembly”, “company” or “community”.

We are visitors on this planet. We are here for ninety or hundred years at the most. During this time we must try to do something good, something useful within ourselves. Try to be at peace with yourself and help others share that peace. If you contribute to other people’s happiness you will find the true goal, the true meaning of life.

This is our vocation. Our mission and our vision.

Energies in the chakras are moved by two currents.
Upward current of creation and the downward current of manifestation. Each of these currents creates a movement that connects us to our subtle energies. Using these currents in meditation or in asana we can tap in and open our channels even deeper. When we can connect with these currents we are aligning ourselves with the natural rhythm of the universe.

This chakra is located right above our belly button on our spine. This energy space is linked to our personal power. When we are balanced in this space we are motivated, passionate and connected to what we were meant to do. Our vocation. Our service to this earth. Finding out what makes you passionate can help wake up this channel.

The second chakra located at our sacral is one that may be difficult to connect to for many. This chakra works with our sexuality and in our modern world where so much masculine energy has taken over our fluid feminine energy it becomes hard to connect this centre. This centre is all about our feminine energy and flow of life. The element is water and this chakra tunes us into our own fluid rhythm.

Our Root Chakra is the first chakra formed. It is the foundation of our spine but also as we grow it becomes our foundation on which we stand, believe, and grow. The root chakra is a great chakra to start your exploration. It can teach you a lot about who you are, your fears, where you have support and where you need to add some support.

What are our Chakras?

This month we are digging deeper to find and explore the channels in our body that help us connect. In Sanskrit these energy centers or nadis are called our Chakras. The word chakra translates to wheel. In our body we have 7 major chakras and each chakra relates to a different part of our endocrine (hormonal) system. This July, through our social media and classes we will explore the first 3 lower chakras.
