Yoga Studio of Corpus Christi
The Yoga Studio of Corpus Christi would like to thank everyone for their support. Over the eleven years we have developed a family feel in the studio and are always excited about welcoming new faces (as practitioners and teachers). It is very exciting to be able to share yoga with someone and watch them go through the process of self discovery. This is the reason the studio exists. With our library, workshops, teacher training and availability to talk with teachers on a personal level we are here to promote your personal growth.
Jivamukti Focus of the Month ~ June 2016
EXCERPT: “Asana is considered to be a practice of Raja Yoga, but asana actually underlies all types of Yoga. To practice Yoga you must be incarnated—meaning living in a physical body. The bhakta chants with her heart and voice, which are part of her body; the jñani sits and meditates while in a body; and the karma yogi certainly performs his compassionate actions by means of his body. Asana pertains to our relationship with the Earth and all others, and our means of relating to others is physical. The practice of asana can bring us directly to enlightenment because the only thing that stands between us and enlightenment is our perception of ourselves and others. The karmas generated by our interactions with others are stored in the tissues of our bodies—in fact, our karmas actually make up our bodies—so moving the body through asana practice has the effect of purifying our karmas, helping us feel more comfortable in our bodies and in our relationships with others, and ultimately leads to freedom and liberation.”
