What is Yoga?
Yoga is the cultivation and maintenance of the state by which all your faculties –your body, senses, mind, feelings, emotions, intellect, intuition –are in the harmonious experience of the real you.
Yoga strengthens and stretches every aspect of your body, calms and focuses the mind and balances the feelings and emotions as you release all tension and create a state of effortless balance and deep attunement with yourself.
What kind of yoga do you do? How is it different than other classes?
Our Raja yoga classes not only physically challenge you to strengthen and balance your body and mind, but also go to a much deeper level. Our classes address the whole person on the physical, psychological and spiritual levels – not in an intellectual, religious or new age way – but with deep reaching, practical life applications.
Students learn far more than just doing the right movements; they experience techniques which help them cultivate the specific conditions necessary for learning to meditate. In a few short weeks you can be well on your way in learning to concentrate the mind, relax the emotions and achieve deep peacefulness and contentment.
RAJA YOGA CLASSES:
(FREE FOR FIRST TIME VISITORS)
Come and join us at the La Jolla Congregational church on Mondays at 4:30PM. We’ll be participating in the practice of Raja Yoga. This will be an excellent way of getting everything balanced and congruent within ourselves. From this practice, we create a state of non-interference that allows for the fluid experience of the energy and interconnectedness within and among one another.
The movement is very fluid and is more based on creating a state of non-interference to the mind instead of strenuous moves for the body. People of all ages are welcome and participants often express a feeling of ease, serenity and connection with their higher Self.
