“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
Samya Yoga Healing offers a variety of workshops and retreats that focus on using yoga techniques like asana (poses), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. In addition, psycho-education (education about the mind, thoughts, emotions, and coping skills), discussions, and experiential-based activities are also integrated. All are focused on tools to support self-transformation!
AREAS OF FOCUS AT SAMYA YOGA HEALING to cultivate a Compassionately Responsive Life
Awareness is the key to change. If we aren't aware, change cannot happen. Yoga is a wonderful way to cultivate awareness because our body and breath are always in the present moment. Being present is how we can begin to notice the world around us, ourselves and our reactions to our environment.
The breath is one of the most powerful tools we can use in managing stress, emotions, and what life brings. It's effect on mind, body and spirit is endless. Just simply learning how to breathe effectively can calm the mind and create more sense of balance and peace. It can lead us towards knowing ourselves more fully.
You've probably heard, 'If you don't love yourself, you can't truly love others.' Compassion is made up of three components: Kindness, Common Humanity, and Mindfulness (Kristen Neff, http://self-compassion.org/the-three-elements-of-self-compassion-2/). Using these three components towards ourselves as we go through life and face the inevitable challenging situations can keep us grounded and moving with more ease and flexibility. Learning how to love yourself only creates more love around you.
