The practical application of “yoga” to affect your everyday life.
“I never knew yoga could be like this.” Maria, Student
You might think of “yoga” as being something intimidating or a pretzel practice performed by very bendy people on a mat in some sort of room. Yoga, though, is simply a synonym for life. Put another way,
All of Life is Yoga
The asana, or physical, practice here in our Sacramento Yoga studio is merely a check-in. In this safe, non-judgmental space, you can feel how you are and begin to listen. To what? To the place within you that knows the answers to all of your questions:
- Who am I?
- What is my purpose in life?
- How can I be happy?
We all have this place that knows but being able to pay attention to it is difficult because your life is busy and there are a million different distractions. Focusing and creating awareness is where we begin. But it’s only a start because once you are aware of who you are truly, there is still work to do to let that amazing person out. It’s work only you can do but ultimately it is the way to feel aligned, whole–one.
There seems to be a misconception that all growth has to be tumultuous and hard–that you have to be “stripped bare” and then rebuild.
At One Flow Yoga we believe compassion and softening are equally valid paths to self-acceptance. In fact, it is often easier to push, push, push then to let go, relax and find ease.
There also is a belief that you have to wear robes, be very serious and quiet to find a place of liberation in your life. We humbly challenge this assumption:
- We offer the best music from all over the world, on the highest quality sound system of any Sacramento Yoga Studio.
- Our yoga sequences are based on the philosophy of vinyasa–being present in the moment for it is temporary–and are creative, spontaneous and playful.
