Welcome

To our River Lotus Yoga Kula: 

We are still uncertain of what the next step for River Lotus Yoga will be. We will be taking some time to reflect, and look to the future. Our hope is to be able to open our doors again after some time has passed, and we have done some restructuring.

Please stay in touch with us and look for updates. For now, we will be offering some outdoor yoga classes during July and August at the Royal Gorge Mansion. Click here for details

Remember that Yoga is something you are, not something you do.
Each of you has the power of yoga within you. Don’t forget to tap in to that once in a while! 
Keep practicing and keep breathing. (though your nose)

Namaste, Robin and Justin

 What is yoga? 

Simply put, Yoga means union. You can look at this union on many levels. We practice the 8 limb path to yoga, which includes many mental, physical, social, and psychological tools. In the USA, Yoga is sometimes thought of as the asana or postures that we do during class, but yoga can be so much more than just that. Yoga is not a religion. However it can offer a set of moral, mental and physical guidelines.

When practicing yoga, you can discover a new way to look at life. There are some mental and social modifications that come with being a yogi (yama and niyama). These choices can help create union with the Self, and with the community. For example Non-harming (ahimsā) is one of these modifications. This can help you be kind to yourself, others, and the community as a whole.

Of course the postures (āsana) are a large piece of the practice. These postures are done with the intention of healing and calming the body. In a consistent yoga practice, you will find that these postures become a way to alleviate pain and tension from the body. Also the movement can have a calming effect on the mind. By keeping the focus in the moment, it can help us let go of worries and stress.

Breath work is also a big part of the practice. Guided Breath control exercises (prāṇāyāma) can help to calm the mind down. The āsana is a breath work practice as well. You may be instructed to inhale and exhale in coordination with the postures. The breath can be a powerful tool for transforming the mind and the body.

Yoga can also help with concentration. By withdrawing the senses (pratyāhāra) and learning to focus, (dhāraṇā) you can learn to have a better control of the mind. This can help in our daily lives, creating increased productivity in daily tasks, and increased control of our emotions and thoughts. We also practice meditation (dhyanā). If you have never meditated, it is a way to sit quietly with yourself. It is used as a way to work on concentration .

If you have never done yoga, try a class. Each teacher is different, each class is different, but the goal is always the same. We want you to walk out light-hearted and feeling good; feeling more at peace with yourself. Yay Yoga!
