spirit on the breath
“Like a marriage, the commitment to an ongoing practice of one style or method allows us the possibility to move beyond the surface. In repetition and devotion we provoke a gradual awakening.”
ashtanga yoga is ever challenging
to the body
to the mind
to the spirit
of each and every practitioner.
what begins as physicality:
a struggle of bodily limitations
evolves with an ignited breath and heartfelt intention
then energy shifts
and changes the way we experience ourselves and others
it affects our moods, behaviour and our relationships
resulting in a gradual awakening
