What is Yoga?
Yoga is so much more than the physical practice we may be accustomed to in the West. Yoga means union on a higher level – union of mind, body, and soul, and traditional yoga teachings comprise eight limbs of yoga. The part of physical asanas is only one of the eight limbs.
Self-study through reflection, dream work, and meditative practices helps us developer deeper insights about who we really are – which is a wonderful step on the path of authentic soul growth.
How do the asanas in yoga help us?
The asanas of yoga open up the energy flow, and have physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. Yoga asanas help prepare us for even deeper meditation experiences, and ultimately help prepare us on our path towards Samadhi, the ultimate blissful state of spiritual, connected consciousness.
How does dream work relate to Yoga?
Dream work helps us observe and practice the first two limbs of yoga, the Yamas and Niyamas. These steps become easier to master when we awaken each morning with a compassionate soul connection. Ultimately dreams help us reach even more advanced levels on the eight limbs of yoga, by lovingly preparing us for higher spiritual states.
