Yoga for Anxiety and PTSD
Join me for a 5 week Monday Night Series - September 16-November 5
5:15 - 6:30 PM Cost: $80
I invite you to come and experience guided gentle yoga with conscious breathing and mindful awareness that will address individual physical, mental/emotional qualities at the time of practice.
I have been told that “yoga” means “union” and that union is the goal of yoga. My question is, union with what? The body with the soul? Union with consciousness?
The central focus of yoga is not the soul and not the body—it is the mind. The body is external and the soul is internal, but the mind, which stands between the body and the soul, is neither completely internal nor completely external. You have probably also been told that consciousness is all pervasive and lies at the core of your being, but until you catch hold of the mind, this is just another sweet statement. Problems are not created by consciousness and they are not created by the body. Problems are created by the mind, and these problems can only be solved by the mind. That is why the scriptures say, “Mind is the ground for both bondage and liberation.”
