Yoga combines the mind with focus and attention, the breath through energy techniques and practices, and the body in movement and postures. The tapestry created is a magical resonance of transformation that makes yoga different both neurologically and physically, manifesting true awareness and bringing inner-strength, clarity and calm: BLiSS! Hence the concept to cultivate, grow, blossom and shine.
At least 4,000 years ago (possibly much longer), the early yogis in Northern India drew on their deep experiences and formulated practices for man to achieve and maintain a state of balanced existence. Although the Sanskrit word yoga is commonly interpreted as ‘union’, it’s primary meaning has been that of practices for the cultivation of the highest awareness at all levels of the human being. There are many ways to practice yoga including meditation, study, self enquiry, chanting and the physical asana practice known as hatha yoga. Here at home in BLiSS you will find a delightful variety of yoga choice, enhancing your personal inward journey.
Every time you step on to your yoga mat, you connect to and become part of an evolving and powerful, ancient tradition. Yoga is the ultimate connector to our interwoven, natural world and spirals our connections to rise to the ripple effect of positivity. Live your yoga on and off the mat into this awesome BLISS filled world!
