Yoga is the union of the body, mind and spirit – the union of your individuality with the divine intelligence that orchestrates the universe. These practices awaken poise, grace and strength in the midst of chaos and turmoil. Our planet is in need of healing and transformation. At times, the challenges of our age can seem overwhelming and beyond the influence of individual intention. Here we hope to provide you with a path to expand your awareness of the relationship between your individuality and your world. Each of us has an opportunity to contribute to a better world through the very personal choices we make on a daily basis, on and off the mat.
The Law of Detachment
Yoga is not a competitive sport. You will not achieve integration of body, mind and spirit through force and effort. The Law of Detachment reveals a great paradox of life: In order to acquire something in this world, you have to relinquish your attachment to it. Attachment is based on fear and insecurity. According to the principles of yoga, the only true security comes from your willingness to embrace the unknown, the realm of uncertainty. By detaching, and thus embracing uncertainty, you relinquish your need to hold on to the past.
Yoga is a system of mindful surrender. The practice of yoga accomplishes its goal of union through attention and intention – through the conscious release of conflict and struggle. This is the essence of the Law of Detachment.
