The return of the Yogi
Developed in India over thousands of years, yoga had its beginnings during a period of great turbulence and struggle. Rishis, the seers of India, entered into profound meditation and were given the keys to unlock the great mysteries. Inspired by this pure yogic knowledge, they taught and practiced yoga to remain connected with the universal source of life. Practitioners engaged in yoga to overcome fears and face the challenges around them with equanimity. Seekers entered into a moving meditation to overcome passions, worries and confusion. This is the same ancient, sacred practice that is offered today in yoga.
In its original and purest form, yoga is a way of life that allows the practitioner to embrace all aspects of health. It supports conscious, healthy eating habits, bathing rituals, meditation, social interactions and spiritual rejuvenation. “Sculpt a New You” provides the practitioner with whatever chisels they may choose to sculpt and shape body, mind and spirit.
