In this practice, we invite you to:
show up on the mat with whatever is going on for you right now
keep up in your human capacity & you will be kept up by your divine capacity
grow up from the roots you put down
breathe up through the long lines of integrity in the body
turn up the intensity by softening through your individual, breathable edge; and
lighten up through being present, compassionate & playful!
Our intention as MYOGA teachers is to empower you to empower yourSelf, to embody your strength and grace in this lifetime.
Come along to a MYOGA class and make it your own!
MYOGA is a fusion of influences woven together, including traditional asanas (physical postures from a broad variety of yoga styles), pranayam (breath control practices) & mudras (the yoga of hand symbols) as well as meditation in motion, sound, laughter, core awareness, & Structural Yoga Therapy. These are like tools in a tool box, each one chosen because it is currently the most effective & efficient tool for the job at hand. Since one of the main tenets of MYOGA is personal & community evolution, the practice itself has evolved (& hopefully continues to evolve!) over the years. We, as teachers, learn as much from you as we do from our own teachers.
MYOGA is focused on bringing yoga to the people, on making the practice accessible to the modern human Being & on developing ourSelves individually yet within the web of community.
The most current weaving of this MYOGA fabric is a Seasonal Structure that honors the changing seasons both within & without our individual bodies.
MYOGA can be found in its home, the Powa Centre, the Beehive for Well-Being.
As we focus on cultivating the inner teacher & uncovering the wisdom within, the practice deepens & broadens. In 2009 MYOGA graduated 5 women from the innaugural MYOGA Apprentice Programme, a 9 month, 200+ hour Yoga Alliance Registered intensive teacher training. In 2012 five more women graduated from the programme & are apprenticing their way towards teaching more fully.
