If you read the previous articles, you are probably beginning to feel the paradigm shift. But don’t worry, there’s no understanding required. Just show up and enjoy the ride. Avita Yoga is designed as a moving mediation where you are guided through the process. With our online recourses, you can practice in the comfort of your own home. There are demanding moments but don’t let that push you into trying to overcome something. Best to work according to the information that shows up in the shapes, moment by moment.
As the body is exposed to various positions, the mind observes. Most of the work takes place on the floor, so nearly everyone can do it.
We are creatures seeking comfort but living a life destined for pain. The more we chase comfort and avoid the pain, the more limited our range of motion becomes! Our world narrows, the body tightens, and the likelihood of pain increases. It’s a vicious cycle that nearly everybody falls into. The third Avita Yoga principle I’d like to share addresses this innate biological fact head-on by acknowledging that seeking the source of the problem may be painful and/or irritating. In this practice, we investigate and bring light to the dark, stuck, unused corners of the body. It may be frustrating and will likely bring up old thoughts, patterns, and visions of injury. To give practitioners time to adapt, Avita Yoga moves at a pace that the nervous system appreciates. This is what nurtures and fosters healing from the inside out.
What problem in your life ever got better by avoiding it? What problem was ever solved by going around it? Avita Yoga leaves no stone unturned. It takes a direct path, knowing that the only way to correct any problem is to kindly and honestly work through it. Sound scary? Maybe. But that’s why we pace ourselves and get to know the healing rhythm of the body and mind. We don’t try to fix anything in one session! To heal, time must be on our side. It took years for patterns to form and injuries to accumulate—it will take some time to unwind it. But the body has an amazing capacity to heal once given the space. Avita Yoga is a practice that provides the space for your body and mind to heal together.
Give it a try and watch it work.
