Beauty of Asana

Lila’s Asana Class Changes & Updates

Asana, which means pose or posture, is the doorway that many of us have walked through in our path to live an inspired, conscious life. Many of us have been witness to the positive affects of this ancient practice and have gained first hand experience to its healing and mentally-calming powers.

Asana, which also means “seat” defines our inherent need “to sit” with our own inner world. It awakens in us a desire to return to our Essence, to return to Spirit. This doesn’t mean that we are to negate the physical form and accept only our spiritual Self. Rather, it means that in order to live fully, we are to ground in our body, detach from the ever-changing thought world, and clearly identify with our Spiritual Essence.

Postures are far more than an exercise or stretching regimen. Asana is a response to our intrinsic nature to look within, to investigate and discover our vast body, mind, and spirit. It is a prayer, a moving meditation, that opens us up like the warm sun opens a beautifully surrendered lotus flower.

When you practice theses sacred postures, you are brought to the present moment. You are taught how to transcend time, suffering, and separation. You awaken to your Highest Self and consciously connect to the Whole. Through asana, you embark on the path of Self-discovery, Self-preservation, and Self-transformation.

Join us at Sangha for the inner experience of asana and continue to be transformed towards love, light, and peace. Dedicate to carve out time in your busy schedule to make your Self a priority. By developing your inner consciousness, you will better equipped to manage the external world of name and form, and more quickly arrive at the place we all seek; inner peace and unwavering happiness.

Blessings on your mat and your dedication towards wholeness.

With Om and Prem,
Lila Saraswati
