2-Week Yoga Challenge: Root and Rise

2-Week Yoga Challenge: Root and Rise

“Yoga is 99% waste removal.” -TKV Desikachar 

TKV Deiskachar was a legendary yoga master and son of the father of modern yoga, T. Krishnamacharya. He built upon his father's teachings and was one of the most respected leaders in the yoga world. One of the primary themes of his therapeutic approach to yoga was that its purpose was to cleanse the body, mind, and emotions. He often spoke of the importance of “burning away the rubbish” to find one’s highest self. 

You know that tangible feeling of lightness after you deep clean your house? Not simply running the vacuum and dusting off the surfaces but digging deep and purging the junk or rubbish. Receipts for items you purchased three years ago, ticket stubs, a collection of socks without their mates––stuff simply taking up space as opposed to adding value to your life. We’re all guilty of allowing clutter to build up and not simply in our surroundings but in our bodies, minds, and hearts.

If you’re feeling lethargic and weighed down physically, a vigorous practice will help you sweat out toxins and energize you. If you’re in the mood for something more mellow, a Hatha or Yin class could be the perfect way to help you feel lighter. All styles of yoga will rev up your digestive, circulatory, and lymphatic systems. When your body feels stagnant, your mind and heart are also not operating at optimum levels of vitality. Cleaning and clearing out is a powerful way to fill yourself with clarity, calm, and purpose. 

Often, we have repetitive negative thoughts and emotions and unless we work to process and release them, they color our entire life perspective. Use your yoga practice to promote clear thinking and positive emotions. We’ve got an incredible 2-week yoga challenge coming in April which will help you release whatever is weighing you down and leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. We’ll have a variety of classes of different lengths and styles each day so you can choose what suits your mood and schedule.

By committing to a daily habit of yoga for two weeks, you are essentially clearing out your overcrowded closet––tossing out the junk and creating space to welcome in the new. Join us and receive classes to your inbox every day and feel refreshed in two weeks.
