Anita Ribble Valley Yogalife
"The pose begins when you want to leave it"
I am a wholehearted yoga teacher in the Ribble Valley, my main wish is to help your mind and body connect, developing your own healthy and spiritual process and spreading the yoga love in our community.
Yoga focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental well-being. Regular yoga practice can be beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains – including lower back pain, depression and stress.
Yoga is not something that you do. Yoga is something that you become. It is not an act, it is a quality. If you cultivate your body, mind, emotions and energies to a certain level of maturity, a certain quality arises within you. That is yoga. Do the practices bring that quality? Definitely, but we do not teach it as some kind of an act that you do only for a few minutes a day.
If you take care of your garden well, there are flowers. In the same way, if you take care of what you call “myself” well, flowers will bloom. That means, being peaceful, happy or joyful is not determined by anything outside of you, it is determined by you. This is something that every human being must do to himself. Yoga is a subjective tool for this to happen!
Tat tvam asi, Sanskrit: “thou art that”
in Hinduism, the famous expression of the relationship between the individual and the Absolute.
Tat Tvam Asi (Sanskrit: तत् त्वम् असि or तत्त्वमसि) is a Sanskrit mantra
Typically translated as “I am that” or “Thou Art That”. It is one of the four principle Mahavakyas, or "Great Sayings" from the ancient Hindu text, The Upanishads. Tat Tvam Asi is used within Hindu and yoga philosophy to refer to the unity of Atman (the individual self or soul) with Brahman (universal consciousness or the Absolute).
The direct translation of this term stems from three Sanskrit roots:
Tat Tvam Asi may be chanted in repetitions or recited silently as part of a meditation practice.
