The journey of life takes us along many pathways. How often do we take the time to reflect upon the journey travelled and its influence over our current mind set and actions. Happiness is a state of mind which needs to be cultivated to manifest a bounty harvest. I always suggest to allow an inner smile to radiate within the inner heart and allow it's radiance to permeate throughout the entire body and mind. Life is meant to be lived so relax, have fun, smile and enjoy the ride.
Dharma yoga and the Himalayan connection!
Yoga is an ancient discipline that has flourished and continues to be practiced in its many forms by millions of people all over the world today. Even though Yoga provides many benefits, such as physical health, emotional stability, mental clarity and spiritual direction, it is important to understand the true purpose of yoga.
The teaching of yoga was first passed on in this cycle of human existence by advanced spiritual beings to the wise meditators who found solace and self realization in the energetic charged mountains known today as the Himalayas. This unbroken tradition is today know as " The Himalayan tradition ".
The Himalayan tradition is an oral tradition where the students learn directly from an initiated teacher of the tradition. Remember The aim of yoga is to achieve full mind realization which is often misunderstood today.
See the physical body as a vehicle for the mind and our aim in yoga is to have dialogue with the driver and find out why we have chosen to take this amazing ride called life. Once we know the objective we can easily enjoy the journey and quickly reach the destination with an open heart.
Dharma Yoga Health Centre was established in 1993 by Jean-Alain d'Argent. His vision for starting Dharma yoga was to create a positive, conscious, nurturing environment for spiritual growth, learning and healing.
I am often asked what is the difference between Dharma yoga and other schools of yoga. My response is always the same there is only one yoga all teachers are doing their best to impart their understanding of yoga. The seeker must review what it is that they are seeking to achieve and find a sincere teacher who will guide them correctly towards achieving their goal.
At Dharma yoga, our aim is to dispel any misunderstanding about yoga and to bring back clarity to one of the most profound teaching known to mankind to date. Understanding and practice of this vast science has the potential to enhance our lives as it brings clarity, purpose and unconditional love to this amazing journey that we call life. read more...
