PRACTICE the Eight Limbs
The Yoga Sutras presented by Patanjali outline a plan for living that flows from action to knowledge to liberation. This plan, or path, has eight limbs that give the practitioner the tools to achieve profound peace by merging with the object of contemplation. Over the next few months we will explore the eight limbs of yoga.


In Janaury our focus is the seventh limb Dhyana or meditation.
“A steady continuous flow of attention directed toward the same point or region is meditation.” Yoga Sutras

 

Get to know your teachers: Chelsea Winters
Chelsea was first introduced to yoga as a freshman in college at the University of New Hampshire and has been practicing since. A long time vegetarian with a passion for the outdoors, yoga was a natural fit. As an active person she was initially drawn to the physical practice, the movement of the asanas and the strengthening aspect. As Chelsea did more yoga and her practice deepened and she soon became aware of the mental and spiritual changes that yoga creating. Her whole attitude and outlook could shift from a single yoga class. Yoga has taught Chelsea many life lessons. It has taught her presence and breath and has made her more aware of her natural surroundings. Yoga has taught Chelsea to pause and appreciate the little things, and how truly small we are in this big world. Chelsea received 200HR yoga teacher certification at Yandara Yoga Institute in December of 2012. In April of 2015, she received a 400HR yoga teacher certification, also at Yandara Yoga Institute, and has currently completed her 500HR training. Chelsea teaches from a place of love and understanding that you can feel in every class.

This plan, or path, has eight limbs that give the practitioner the tools to achieve profound peace by merging with the object of contemplation. Over the next few months we will explore the eight limbs of yoga.

In December our focus is the sixth limb Dharana 
Dharana means concentration and it is a by product of love. It can be external as in asana or can be internal as in meditation.

“On the mat we experience Dharana quite often, during those moments when we lose track of time, when our minds become so absorbed in the physical experience of a posture that we no longer connect to everyday concerns. The past and furutre dissolve and we are simiply existing in the now. When we are doing something we truly love, we cannot help but give ourselves to it wholeheartly.” Rolf Gates

Get to know your teachers: Lindsea Stowe


Lindsea Stowe's yogic path began on the beaches of Florida and culminated in the mountains of Vail. Moving to the valley allowed Lindsea’s passion for yoga to grow as she was introduced to a variety of styles of yoga. Here, she found Karen Anderson as mentor for both yoga asana and meditation. She was drawn to a traditional style of yoga that allowed her to slow down and explore the breath and depth of the poses. Her formal training under Karen, with influences from Richard Freeman and Dharma Mittra, helped focus Lindsea's inquiry into the unity of the universe and possibilities of the body. As a new teacher she has a growing interest in therapeutics and the healing power of yoga. She is constantly growing her home practice and understanding of the yogic traditions with playful ambition.
