The Sanskrit salutation “Om namah shivaya” can be translated as: I bow to that which I am capable of becoming. Each of us has unlimited possibilities stretched out ahead of us, regardless of who we are, where we live, what we do or how old we are. It’s interesting to take a moment to bow to the possibilities. Inevitably something specific leaps to mind. Perhaps a physical goal, some mental hurdle or maybe even a spiritual seeking comes into focus.
As Yogis, we try to step back from the chatter, the planning and the desire that comes up when we contemplate those possibilities. There is an art to acknowledging potential without becoming overwhelmed by it or chasing after it. The key is to stay present.
We explore this on the mat by placing ourselves in different physical postures or using varied this in the safe environment of the Yoga space, we may find this skill naturally extending into the other areas of our lives so that we can experience the fullness of our potential while staying grounded in the present.
Yoga offers you the opportunity to explore your potential in whatever aspect you choose – physically, emotionally, spiritually or any combination thereof. Within Yoga there are a number of different styles and each one appeals to different people for different reasons. At Yoga Unlimited, our goal is to provide you with a variety of options to choose from so that you can explore multiple options. We invite you to explore the possibilities with us.
