YOGA AND MARYJOANNA
Welcome and Namaste,
How humbled I am to share my experiences of this practice with you. First, let me honor that there are many different ways to feel and experience this ancient, sacred healing system that has originated in India thousands of years ago. I am grateful to share some aspects of this mountain that is yoga with you, by way of my own practice and study.
For me, yoga is much more than the physical Asanas/poses. It goes beyond where you put your limbs. Yoga is the practice of getting to know your body, your breath, your SELF. The more we connect with this knowing of ourSELVES, the more we can love ourselves, check ourselves, grow ourselves.
Let us journey together to know ourselves, to feel the breath, to strengthen the muscles, to stretch the body and the mind, to feel our deepest potential of strength and letting go, to find balance. May we approach our practice through the physical body, mediation, self-reflection, community, and committed study and reverence for this gift that is yoga.
