Join us for a unique opportunity: Contact Yoga Studio of Corpus Christi at 361-779-0183 or michelle.acebo@gmail.com to register!
This is a 40 day method that offers us the understanding of our condition and the road map to get ourselves out into a more sculpted and awakened life-whether that be a stronger, more powerful, or pain-free body, a heightened emotional intelligence, or a spiritually deeper experience of life. Taking responsibility for the self means taking action, and this program is about taking action. It is designed to challenge your personal philosophy and your body so that you can tap unknown resources within yourself. Once you take full responsibility and spark you inner revolution with full consciousness, the practices you learn in this program will never fail you. This program will lead you towards a more awakened and truthful life.

What you need for class: journal, and book 40Days to Personal Revolution; Baron Baptiste

This does require a commitment we will meet every Friday at 6 p.m., starting on February 20th – April 3rd. The class will last approximately 2.5 hours. It will consist of a 90 minutes Vinyasa practice and inquiry. 

What is provided is support for a 40 day period of time. You will be provided a audio meditation and asana practice for each week. Each week will progressively increase in time. e.g. Meditation starts at 5 minutes working up to 30 minutes. Vinyasa starts at 20 minutes working up to 90 minutes. It can seem overwhelming at first glance, remember it is not about doing this perfectly. You will be supported the entire duration, Sundays are your resting days. Along with meditation and asana we will work with eating clean. This is not a diet, just healthy eating, bringing mindfulness into what you eat and why.

Cost if register before February 13th $150, after $180.

I am committed to supporting you compassionately and helping you realize your most powerful self.

Namaste,

Jivamukti Focus of the Month JANUARY, 2015 Time Was, Is, and Will Be

The succession of changes (the uninterrupted sequence of moments) is only recognized as distinct moments when one has transcended those moments and is at the other end.

Yoga Sutras IV.33jivalogo1Sri David Ji
We regulate and evaluate our lives by time. Seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years, and decades are all measures of time. Time – that you can see passing in the sweep of the second hand and the sweep of the Sun across the sky. But how accurate are the measures of time that we judge our success or failure in living, the length of our yoga practice and the paycheck we receive? Do past, present, and future actually exist, and can you visit them?

The age-old quest into the nature of time floats somewhere between physics and philosophy. Time is a very mysterious thing. The best scientific minds do not agree on the qualities or nature of time. There are basically two modern theories of how time works:
A theory – past present and future exist and time passes
B theory – no time is objectively past, present, or future, the passage of time is an illusion.

Either theory could be true, or both. We accumulate memories about the past but we have no memory of the future, so time does seem to be traveling from the past to the future. Time moves slowly sometimes and faster other times…or at least it seems to. For example, raising your body temperature can slow down your sense of time as much as 20%. That is why yoga class seems to contain so much – in so little clock time. Time runs faster at elevation too, so clocks run faster if they are raised by just 12 inches. People who live on the top floor apartment age more quickly than on the ground floor. Time passes more slowly at sea level than it does in the mountains. (Time passes slowly in Shavasana.) Your head ages faster than your feet – unless you invert everyday!

Could we travel through time? The grandfather paradox states that if you went back in time to a period before your parents were conceived and killed your grandfather before he had a chance to father your parent, you will never be born — which means, you could never have existed to go back in time and killed your grandfather which means backward time travel will interfere with the future path of the thing which travelled and that the inherent impossibility of this makes backward time travel impossible. This paradox makes sense from a physical point of view, but perhaps time travel takes place in other dimensions, perhaps in the realm of Super Consciousness itself.

The yogic method for transcending time is to dive deep into it. In Hinduism, god is personified as time – Kala, and Time moves in relentless and bloody cycles that repeat. In yoga sutra ksana represents the smallest increment of elapsed time – a moment. Aksana is so small that it actually has no duration. Ksana is time out of time. It is much like the point in geometry. In the same way that a point has no dimensional existence of height, length, or width – the ksana has no duration. The point that is repeated creates the first dimension of length. The ksana that is repeated creates the arrow of time that seems to move from the past to the future, the kramah. The trouble is (according to the sutra,) that we don’t realize the impact of our actions, until it is too late to do anything about it by changing our actions. Hindsight is 20/20!

The reason we cannot seem to link our current actions, with past actions and future results, is because we act unconsciously. When consciousness lapses the continuity of actions is lost. The present moment seems to have unrelated challenges and novel inventions of fate. “How did I get here?” “Why is this happening to me?” The world seems to be coming at us for no fault of our own. Yoga practices reveal how your actions result in the life you experience, and your projections appear – as the world before you.

Too bad we can’t pierce the veil of time and inhabit our past, present and future now!

But you can…and you will reach a state, through yoga practices, when there are no more unconscious lapses – we call it Super Consciousness. You will experience past, present, and future time as continuous and connected. You can free yourself from a time-bound existence.

Special Donation Based Candle Light Yoga Friday, May 24th, 2013

Candlelight yoga

Special Donation-Based Candle light Gentle Yoga followed by a Yoga Nidra Practice Friday, May 24th 6:00pm-8:15pm

Suggested Donation: $20

Gentle yoga is a calming, stress-relieving yoga practice to stretch and strengthen the body gradually. Emphasis is on building awareness of the breath and the body. Asanas are practiced at a slower pace with attention to alignment. Recommended for all levels in search of a relaxing, restorative experience.  We will then move our Savasana practice into a Yoga Nidra Experience.

“Yoga Nidra, which is derived from the tantras, is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. In yoga nidra, sleep is not regarded as relaxation. People feel that they are relaxing when they collapse in an easy chair with a cup of coffee, a drink or a cigarette, and read a newspaper or switch on the television. But this will never suffice as a scientific definition of relaxation. These are only sensory diversions. True relaxation is actually an experience far beyond all this. For absolute relaxation you must remain aware. This is yoga nidra, the state of dynamic sleep. Yoga nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. The term yoga nidra is derived from two Sanskrit words, yoga meaning union or one-pointed awareness, and nidra which means sleep. During the practice of yoga nidra, one appears to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness.” ~ ‪Swami Satyananda Saraswati

Limited space available.  $5.00 will hold your spot.  This will be a full event.  Sign ups will be taken first then as space permits, walk-ins will be taken.
