According to Tantra, it is said: Sam’yoga yoga ityukto jiiva’tma’ Parama’rmah. (The unification of the individual soul with the Supreme Soul is called Yoga.)
Asanas when done properly, make the body& mind strong & healthy & help a person to endure long periods of time in meditation. Jyoti has been practicing Tantra Sadhana for almost 30 years. In his class he will take you through a sequence of basic & then more difficult poses, stretching not only your muscular & skeletal systems but also your internal physical systems. All organs, glands, nerves & nerve fibres are stimulated in this system of asanas.
Through the practice of asanas & breath control, you may become more aware of the subtle energies that ebb & flow in the mind & learn to still them even more. All aiding one to be able to be silent & still enough to experience even just a moment where one merges one’s individual soul with the Infinite Soul.
Dyana has been practicing yoga for over 40 years. She recently completed her Diploma in Yoga Therapy at Wellpark College. She developed the Integrated 200 hour Yoga Teachers Training Program at Kawai Purapura and teaches Anatomy and Physiology and Yoga Philosophy and Tantric Practices on the course.
Dyana teaches Hatha yoga as investigation and exploration. Students use traditional asanas to investigate the way the body moves. As the mind becomes sharper and more subtle, the body naturally opens to the breath. Soon the mind, breath and body are dancing together .
Yoga is about restoring the normal function to the body. In Dyana’s classes, stability is coupled to flexibility, strength is coupled to softness, and movement patterns are investigated for their ability to integrate the whole body. Yoga is a path of waking up, of becoming embodied. Full embodiment is full enlightenment.
