The Practice

Through physical postures, breath work and meditation practices, Blissful Awareness Yoga addresses all aspects of a person simultaneously; the physical, the emotional, the mental and the spiritual. It can be powerfully integrative and deeply transformative. It leaves you feeling like your natural and true Self.

In the early stages of a meditative yoga practice, there needs to be a teacher, facilitator, or guide who has a depth of experience and the skills necessary to guide people safely into their “centre” (Inner Being) and assist them in becoming established in that centre.

Later on, after the student is familiar with the journey into Source or Centre and after they become established in their practices, they will evolve from a good foundation.  Blissful Awareness Yoga practices embody the true intention of yoga practice which is self-awakening.  This is not easily found in the vast and confusing yoga marketplace of today. 

Many of the direct and in-depth teachings in this practice are drawn from the Kripalu Yoga and the Amrit Yoga traditions for which I will be forever grateful.  They have exposed me to the true depths of yoga.    Also I am continuously learning and deepening my understanding of the body/mind from a wide variety of sources.
