Welcome to Agni Power Yoga “True
meditation is about being fully present with everything that is
- including discomfort and challenges.
It is not an escape from life. "
~ Craig Hamilton
Vinyassa in sanskrit means "to place in a special way,"
and is generally accepted to mean flow when describing a yoga class. We
work to synchronize movement and breath to transition with intention
and awareness through a series of dynamic postures
logically sequenced to strengthen, open and energize the body.
Tapas in sanskrit means "heat, fire, and cleanse;"
as well as discipline. The physical body is heated by the movement,
breath, and postures. Vinyassa yoga is also a mindfulness practice.
Continuously bringing our attention into our actions and sensations develops our capacity to hold a one-pointed focus so that the flame of the mind burns steady.
Santosha in sanskrit means "contentment,"
not to be confused with complacency. Contentment requires both
compassion and non-attachment. Practicing compassion means developing
self awareness without judgement. We tend to place value judgements on
ourselves based on how well we do something. Observing these thoughts
and feelings as they come up, rather than identifying with them, turns
them into fuel for the fire of discriminating awareness.
Yoga in sanskrit means "to yoke together, to unite, to join." Yoga
is one of six schools of Indian philosophy and is generally understood
to be a discipline of mind, body, and spirit. We practice non-attachment by aligning our awareness, intentions and actions while surrendering their results.
