Lotus (sanskrit word is padme or padma)- a plant that grows from mud in the water and as it reaches toward the sunlight becomes a beautiful lotus flower. It symbolizes wisdom, beauty, and purity.
Bliss (sanskrit word is anand) - extreme happiness; spiritual joy
Yoga - means union of two objects. Whether you connect with your breath and body, body and mind, or soul and spirit.
Do you practice a mantra?
A mantra is a word or a phrase that can be repeated aloud or quietly to oneself. The aim is to focus the mind and an intention to oneself or a higher divine power. The simplest word is "om" or "aum". The sound vibration helps to clear the mind and bring peace to the spirit.
I have been a long time practitioner since 1992 and a teacher of yoga since 2006. I hope to share the benefits of yoga in my instructions to those who attend my public classes. Yoga is not just the physical poses but also an awareness of linking our breath, body, and spirit. My classes put a smile on your face. It is filled with delight, spirit, freedom and a feeling of calm after the practice. The practice of yoga is filled with infinite possibilities and you are the focus. As described under the classical yog text, the 8th limb of yoga is samadhi. This means bliss. Please embrace a blissful state of well-being from yoga. Om Mani Padme Hum ~ Sharon
Comments - I love your class because it is different. It is never the same. That is why I keep coming back.
