YOGA

Liliana utilizes Yoga as a tool to reintegrate the physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of her students to achieve a state in which everything fits together.


“The word YOGA is derived from the sanskrit root yuj meaning to bind, join, attach and yoke, to direct and concentrate one’s attention on, to use and apply. It also means union or communion. It is the true union of our will with the will of God. ‘It thus means’, says Mahadev Desai in his introduction to the Gita according to Gandhi, ‘the yoking of all the powers of the body, mind and soul to God; it means the disciplining of the intellect, the mind, the emotions, the will, which that Yoga presupposes; it means a poise of the soul which enables one to look at life in all aspects evenly”

B.K.S IYENGAR, Light in Yoga

Yoga is a phenomenal way to peel back the layers of the ego and thru perpetual conditioning of the physical, mental and spiritual bodies, it enables us to find our true self – a changeless, stable, quiet self beyond the ever shifting emotions of the mind with which we tend to misidentify ourselves. Yoga reveals this true self by a process known as citta vritti nirodhah – ‘ the control of the activities of the mind ‘.

We accomplish this not by learning to twist ourselves into what often seems like an impossible position, or bending in all directions effortlessly, but working to our own capability, within our physical, emotional and spiritual bodies but most importantly with our BREATH to explore and discover the way into our internal landscape, our inner life, energy and our life force (known as prana) which flows thru us giving us the eternal energy we need for survival.

MEDITATION

Meditation is the practice of watching your mind think/wander. You cannot watch and be what you are watching at the same time. Meditation is not the same as prayer or contemplation. Prayer often means asking for something from someone other than yourself. Contemplation means to dwell on thoughts or concepts. Meditaion means to listen within. To listen, you must stop talking. Trusting that everything is exactly the way it should be, now at this present moment and always, not like you think it should be. – The meditator rests in the timeless.

To understand what happens during meditation, we must first have some sort of understanding of consciousness, which is the knowing principle. A being can be in a high state of consciousness or a low state, depending on the degree of avidya (mis-knowing or ignorance) Avidya can cloud consciousness, so that it is as if we are trying to see who we are in a dirty mirror, and mistake the dirt for our face.

The practice of yoga and meditation are psychotherapeutic methods to cleaning the mirror of consciousness. They are design to free the practitioner of despair and depression and from dependence on external substances or external conditions for achieving HAPPINESS.

Liliana will guide the student thru several different techniques to learn to meditate.
