WELCOME TO THE HOME OF ASTANGA YOGA AT THE MOUNT!

 

'Shala' in the Sanskrit language means 'home'.  

 

Buddhi Shala is a place of yogic practices in alignment with the sutra of Patanjali and the tradition of Astanga. 

 

"Astanga" literally means eight limbs.  Patanjali described these as: Yama (abstinences), Niyama (Observances), Asana (Postures), Pranayama (Breath Control), Pratyahara (Sense withdrawal), Dharana (Concentration), Dhyana (Meditation), and Samadhi (Contemplation).   

 

The practice links a series of postures (asana) in a continuous flow with the rhythm of breath. Through the yogic practice of breathing, postures (asanas), and gazing point (drishti), we gain control of our senses and develop deep awareness of ourselves.

Steadiness of body and mind can be acquired through practice with regularity and devotion.

 

When practiced in this way it is possible to energise, purify, and strengthen the energetic and physical system. We can gradually rediscover our full potential on all levels of human consciousness - physical, psychological and spiritual.
