Wake in the early morning, escorted by pastel shades of dawn. Sit in the consciousness of stillness and become poised to listen. Let yoga speak to you as the sun rises. There is no better way to awaken than moving your body on the mat and aligning your heart and mind to spirit.
Sound enticing? Starting July 5, join me in the practice of 21 days of early morning yoga, meditation, mudra, and mantra and joyfully bound into the rest of your day. Experience the power of a daily yoga practice during the annual 21 Day Sunrise Yoga through alleyCat Yoga.
Using the Yamas and the Niyamas as the framework of the class, you will deepen your ability to weave the wisdom of the first and second limbs of the yogic path into your entire life. The Yamas, a Sanskrit word which translates in the word “restraints,” include nonviolence, truthfulness, nonstealing, nonexcess, and nonpossessiveness. The Niyamas, or “observances,” include purity, contentment, self-discipline, self-study and surrender.
Each day’s asana (posture) practice will include a mantra (statement) and mudra (hand gesture) that is associated with one of the Yamas or Niyamas. Using sound and body posture to call forth the energy of each guideline you will find a support for weaving the teachings into your day.
To prepare, I have set the intention to get up a little bit earlier each day between now and July. I wake up and move to the yoga mat for meditation and movement. I listen to what my body wants to do and listen to what my heart has to say. This deep listening sets the tone for the rest of the day. It connects me with myself and what I need to know and do. I am calmer. I am more focused. I am more energized. I am more joyful.
Join me on this yoga immersion experience and witness for yourself how the power of practice is fuel for personal growth and transformation.
