The ultimate purpose of hatha raja yoga is self realization in order to be liberated.
Sometimes contemporary yoga approaches feel more like yoga I can make us feel like we’re not good enough and illicit and trigger our tendencies to be competitive and self loathing I can tell you that this is not the intention of yoga.
When you decide to participate in a mind-body centering yoga class with nina be or any of the beautifully trained teachers from the Mbcy program you’re invited to be authentic; you are invited to explore the deepest and sometimes most vulnerable parts of your wisdom we know you are here for a very particular reason and we want to affirm that purpose.
Attending a yoga class can be an amazing experience as long as we are home with ourselves.
if we begin to make the teacher or the other students in the room or even the challenge of the most perfect asana the reason we are in class we are being dominated — our small self may look out from the window of our hearts and wonder why we’ve left home.
Yes focusing into the heart is a high practice called drishti.
The heart is said to be the seat of the soul and the Bliss body where there is quietude and stillness and the ability to accept the conditions of the present moment this indeed is our power that resonates deeply in the center of our truth that all is one.
Mind body centering yoga is meant to be attentive and quiet enough so that one can find every part of one’s yoga practice tucked away within one’s pure nature.
The environment is meant to be beautiful inspiring and fantastical perhaps otherworldly; a place where a human being can realize they are the cosmos and the cosmos is them.
