"Yoga originated in India 4,000 years ago as a spiritual practice focused on uniting the earthly practitioner with a universal, divine consciousness ... it is best described as a mind-body-spirit system for achieving self-awareness.
Yoga, in all its forms, provides a means for the practitioner to master the body and mind so that the soul (or true self) can emerge to share in the experience of life." – © 2012 theyogaposter.com
The human energy field is composed of 7 main subtle energy centres aligned along the spine called Chakras. This energetic anatomy is like a computer running many different programs from your cellular memory. "Every thought and experience you’ve ever had in your life gets filtered through these chakra databases. Each event is recorded into your cells. In other words, your biography becomes your biology." – Caroline Myss
There are many styles of Yoga, each offering a unique contribution to the full spectrum. The Tantric Revolution (500 CE) rejected classical Yoga's emphasis on self-denial and opened up new pathways.
Kathleen first studied Hatha Yoga, which is rooted in Tantra Yoga, and has since explored the Tantric tradition with great gratitude. This is a practical approach that embraces all of life's ups and downs. Tantra celebrates absolutely everything as an expression of source energy, and its practices prepare us to fully unite with divine consciousness.
"Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted - in body, mind and heart - and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow - or we begin to flow more in our lives."
