The goal of any yoga practice is a sattvic (pure) balance of rajasic (active) and tamasic (passive) energies – a powerful union of yang and yin, effort and surrender, ha (sun) and tha (moon). The practice of Yoga helps us learn about stillness in movement and the flow of stillness, ultimately so that we have greater ease in every aspect of our lives.
Raja means King. A king acts with independence, self-confidence and assurance. Likewise, a Raja Yogi is autonomous, independent and fearless. Raja Yoga is the path of self-discipline and practice. Raja Yoga is also known as Ashtanga Yoga.
I offer Rāja Yoga classes in classical Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga tradition focusing primarily on counting with breathing, static and dynamic asana (posture) followed by Pranayama (breathing exercises) and relaxation. The practice of Raja Yoga is easy to adopt by anyone regardless of age, gender and flexibility capacity. The student reaches to a still state and ready to practice dhayana (concentration on breathing or an object) and reaches meditative state. Reaching this state is the ultimate goal of Yoga according to Pãtanjai (पतञ्जलि)- The father of Yoga.
Regular practice of Rāja Yoga streghten muscles, increase energy, improve flexiblity, promote better posture and reduce backpain. It helps reducing stress, anxity, chronic headaches and imsomnia and decreses fatigue and promotes cardio and circulatory health.
Rāja Yoga re-introduced by Guruji Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya in early 20th century – He is regarded as “The father of modern Yoga” and the guru of world famous yoga masters Sri B. K. S. Iyengar (Iyengar yoga), Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga vinyasa yoga) and Sri T. K. V. Desikachar (ViniYoga).
