The practice of yoga is an art and science dedicated to creating union between body, mind and spirit. Its objective is to assist the practitioner in using the breath and body to foster an awareness of ourselves as individualized beings intimately connected to the unified whole of creation.

In short it is about making balance and creating equanimity so as to live in peace, good health and harmony with the greater whole.


This art of right living was perfected and practiced in India thousands of years ago and the foundations of yoga philosophy were written down in The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, approximately 200 AD. This sacred text describes the inner workings of the mind and provides an eight-step blueprint for controlling its


restlessness so as to enjoying lasting peace.


The core of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra is an eight-limbed path that forms the structural framework for yoga practice. Upon practicing all eight limbs of the path it becomes self-evident that no one element is elevated over another in a hierarchical order. Each is part of a holistic focus which eventually brings completeness to the individual as they find their connectivity to the divine. Because we are all uniquely individual a person can emphasize one branch and then move on to another as they round out their understanding.

In brief the eight limbs, or steps to yoga, are as follows:


  1. Yama : Universal morality
  2. Niyama : Personal observances
  3. Asanas : Body postures
  4. Pranayama : Breathing exercises, and control of prana
  5. Pratyahara : Control of the senses
  6. Dharana : Concentration and cultivating inner perceptual awareness
  7. Dhyana : Devotion, Meditation on the Divine
  8. Samadhi : Union with the Divine

To be physically and mentally fit it doesn't only matter how we treat our body at a physical level but it also matters how we take care of it internally. Food plays a big role on our mind.

A Yogic diet is a composition of sattvic food with mindfully eating.
Sattvic Food
Have you ever noticed the effects of food on our body and mind? Some gives an effect of disturbance or uneasiness however there are some foods which have more subtle effects on the mind and our mood. Ayurveda offers us an intricate understanding of how different foods effect our body physically , mentally and even spiritually.Sattvic foods promote purity of both body and mind. In particular, a sattvic diet is intended to cultivate a calm and clear mind.Sattvic foods are generally fresh vegetables, grains, and legumes, mild spices and  mild sweet foods.
According to Ayurveda, this is the best diet for a Yogi to adopt. It helps keep the mind clear, and Sattvic as opposed to rajasic or tamasic. A sattvic diet is also soothing for the digestive system, nourishes tissues, and utilize the six tastes in Ayurveda (sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, astringent) to help balance our sattva, rajas, and tamas maha gunas (mental energies). The six tastes describe the flavors of different foods and their vital essences. A well-rounded meal will incorporate both nourishing and purifying qualities.

ASANAS AS AN OPEN SPACE THAT LETS LIFE HAPPEN 

Asana is sitting in an empty space, it is not living in a known or pre-established form, but knowingly entering a living space, a place to be explored without preconceptions or certainties, to take a form that freely expands into the formless (it is to close the body into a form, without tightening anything as Eric Baret wisely says), it is living without cluttering up, furnishing, but welcoming, listening, leaving space to space.

The first indication is therefore: to dismantle, to deconstruct, to depose: therefore to be, in the void, present. Filling has nothing to do with fullness: true fullness is fuller the more it is emptied, when it gives way to the new, the unexpected, and the different. This void is therefore full of ... expectation, an expectation without expectations, and availability to the unknown. The breathing pauses, full or empty, is always khumbha, the open vessel that contains the space of life. Asana is becoming traversable and dissolving in the abandonment of what was our solid form. What we thicken becomes hard, mechanical, and painful. The pause, the space between things, makes things live. In that suspension one can be born and die, in that opening life happens. And life is softness; it's becoming fluid, flowing between the spaces of things, without haste, without purpose with pleasure. The contact, the border, the limit are transformed into places of the relationship, with the space above, below, inside and outside of us.

In order for the asana to be fulfilled, it is necessary to enter a form that represents freedom from all forms, it is necessary to become the templum, traditionally that portion of the sky that the august observed to derive presages from it. It is becoming kshetra, the open field of experience. There is therefore a chosen space in which the ritual of asana performs in a limited form and this space is the body. The delimitation of the place does not imply, however, a forced restriction of the field of exploration, nor does it impose limits on the freedom or depth of experience. The opposite is true: in Yoga continence is never repressive compulsion or closure, but rather it is that inner custody, that becoming womb, which gives wings to the freedom of conscience, since the body itself becomes infinite sky.

Yoga Asana is letting you be inhabited, opening yourself up, going beyond, rushing from a certain shape. The sky is round and in asana we become turned-up attitude, kunda, but not closed: kundalini is the energy that rises straight up spiraling from its roundness to become khecari, the one who wanders in space, freely. This is the awakened attitude of the consciousness that the yoga in embodies in the protected space of the asana.

To embody is to let oneself be impregnated by the air, by the perfume, by the warmth of the vital energy and dissolve in it.
