Swakriya Yoga Class
This is a gentle class and our max is 9.
Our resident bhakti yogi, Meg Sharana, felt the call very early in her training to discover a yoga that allowed her to go deeper into discover of herself as well as a desire to guide others that were looking to yoga to do the same. This call led her to Ma Sharanam Ashram in rural India and the Swami that runs the ashram Swami Gurusharananda. There, through Swamiji and the boys of the ashram she discovered a deep connection to Anandamayi Ma a powerful teacher of her time who practiced and preached love and oneness. Through Ma and Swamiji the birth of the yoga of oneness called Swakriya Yoga was realized. Meg Sharana was honored to be one of 2 people from the United Stated to complete a teacher training in this lineage of yoga and is honored and excited to begin offering it to you at MpowerD
The force which is moving our 'breath' is the same which is moving the planets and stars. The flow of blood in our body is due to the same force which is moving 'rivers' and ocean. The power which is blinking our eyes is the same which is the cause of dawn and dusk.
This body and the universe are not different. Only" one" is present everywhere. Only one force is moving everything.
Swakriya yoga is based on this very concept oneness. By becoming aware of this supreme truth our limited perception falls down and we percieve the Infinite, Vast energy present everywhere. We become one with the supreame love which is flowing in the veins of every person.
"Swakriya' literally means the 'movement'(kriya) of 'I' (swa)- the Supreme Self in the form of movement. We are only to just become aware of this supreme truth already inherent in us. We have not to create or invoke anything. In Swakriya yoga there are different movements, mantras, breathing processes, and postures which accelerate the awakening process. In other words all the tools of SKY help us in removing the barriers which prevent us in realizing this great truth. The 'Truth', the 'oneness' is already here and now in each and every movement. We are only to discover. This discovery makes us one , and allows us to flow in infinite Love and Wisdom.
Oneness is the Truth. All the teachers of the great non-dual traditions say the same thing in their own way. All have told us that there is only one reality, one awareness in the universe, and that we have never been separate from that. They have also showed us that all our problems, from fear, to feeling abandoned, from selfishness to aggression, to carelessness toward each other and the mother nature, arise from the feeling of being separate.
So by practicing oneness, practicing SKY techniques we cure the root cause of problem. Practice and creates an inner climate within which grace can reveal the reality we are trying to discover. If we keep practicing SKY - the bhava of unity into our mind, intellect, and imagination. Our consciousness will eventually respond by generating its own spontaneous intuitions and realizations of oneness.
By practicing SKY the main benefit is it helps to let go of the idea that we are simply a body. We start feeling oneness with awareness, with energy. We start feeling intense love in the heart. The love which is unconditional, the love which makes you one with all. And we have seen 90% of sickness of body is due to this limited perception. So by practicing SKY the body & mind get healed. We live much more happy, peaceful and loving life. A life which is meaningful, a life with connectedness of mother Nature.
