Yoga is a natural state of being. It is a way to live life joyfully with full intensity but at the same time, be at ease and calm. Yoga is a reflection of your inner world or called it a being. Yoga is "Made from Within." Yoga is not about being acrobatic. The physical only prepares you to experience something unexplainable. Submerged yourself beyond the physical to find the inner silence within. Yoga is a journey into the unknown.
You might already be doing yoga without noticing and fall under the 4 Paths of Yoga. If you volunteer to your local organization or doing any type of social impact, you are doing Raja Yoga. If you launch a startup and are active in scaling your company without being attached to the results, then you are doing Karma Yoga. If you study sacred texts or are grateful for God's support in your life, then you are doing Bhakti Yoga. So, you are already doing yoga without doing the physical.
4 Paths of Yoga
Devotion. Be a devotee of your God. Being grateful for what God has given you. Always remember him, he is next to you.
Wisdom. Ability to distinguish between right and wrong. When you lead through the heart, you never go wrong.
Action without fruits of the action. From any action you take, whatever the result is, see it "as is."
Moral discipline; Study Sacred Texts (i.e. Bible); Asanas (postures); Control of breath; Concentration; Control of Senses; Meditation; and Enlightenment.
WHY I’M TEACHING YOGA?
When I graduated from the Isha Hatha Yoga School, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to teach right away. I continued to focus on doing my daily practices because I entered Sadhana (spiritual path). Since coming back to the US, I've come across many people who want to practice but they don't because mainstream has portrayed yoga as an acrobatic exercise. Unfortunately, in mainstream, there is a conception that yoga is only “Physical” and some people see yoga as a fashion trend. I began to research what is happening with Yoga in the US. I used the human-centered design method (empathy) and submerged myself in the current yoga culture. I began to explore yoga in areas where is very popular such as Silicon Valley, Santa Monica, Hollywood, Los Angeles, and New York City. I observed yoga studios, yoga meetups, attended well-being events, looked at what is being posted in YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, explored the yoga and meditation apps, observed yoga in the park summer events, and the studied the overall commercialization. I was surprised at the different types of yoga practices on the market. I spoke to random people on the streets on their well-being and what are they doing to bring balance to their body, mind, energy, and emotions. I separated the people I interacted in four categories: (Current Market) those who are currently practicing different yoga styles; (Tier 1) soon to be practitioners who use a gym and have thought about practicing yoga but feel intimidated because of the postures; (Tier 2) people who are not willing to give yoga a chance because they believe it is too expensive - clothes, yoga mat, classes, and organic food; and (Tier 3) I met retirees to investment bankers who at one point of their lives engaged in physical activity but no longer doing so.
From the Current Market to Tier 3, there are thousands (millions if you look at the overall yoga market in the US which is approximately 36.7 million yoga practitioners and the number will go higher globally) of people misinformed about yoga and meditation and it really concerns me. Why it concerns me? Because imagine you buy a Lamborghini but you only drive it at 15 mph when the machine’s nature is to run at full speed. This means, whatever you are doing it doesn’t bring you the ultimate benefit. People are curious about yoga. People want to try yoga. With the right approach and teaching, there are thousands of people who are willing to jump the “Ship” and begin a true inner journey. I think this is fantastic. The fact that at least I have Tier 1 to Tier 3 to work with, really motivates me.
So I decided to open myself and offer what I have learned to you out of my caring - this is my offering to you. Yoga is more than the physical. Yoga had a tremendous impact on my self-transformation. I truly believe we all have an inner potential and I would like to serve as a bridge for your inner greatness. I would love to see your self-transformation. If you give yoga a chance, you will discover the magic it can do for you. Yoga is just pure simple if you allow it. Is not about breaking your muscles, being acrobatic, being experimental, or give you pain. Yoga is about going slow inwards and gradually you begin to poke at things inside of yourself that will leave you in pure blossom ecstasy. If you keep up with the practices, you’ll begin to see life differently. With the right alignment, whatever you do in life, it will just feel effortless. You’ll begin to control the senses thus blocking any judgment, fear, anger, doubt, and other negative tendencies to rise. Your level of awareness will prolong and you’ll begin to experience a calmer mind allowing you to experience more the present moment. It is in the present moment where consciousness the “Creator” manifests itself. It is consciousness the ultimate peak to reach for anyone who practices yoga. Yoga can take you there, to a path of true liberation away from all that is pain and suffering created by the restless mind when it leaves the heart. Lord Buddha always said to his followers to never bow to him because that fact he reached enlightenment doesn’t make him any special. We all have this potential to reach the ultimate liberation. All of us have it inside. For some, it is deeply buried and for others is ready to come out. Karma plays a strong factor in how quickly you can see the benefits of yoga. Yoga will help uncover what needs to be uncovered.
