Transformation through the Body

Our growth in practice only happens when we rest sincerely in inquiry. We need an Internal order through subtle perception:


Ashtanga - The eight pillars

The basis of Yoga practice rests in these eight branches that are interdependent and form an indivisible unity. If we transit this path without one of them being present, essentially the ethical principles of Yamas and Nyamas, the possibility of a profound state of unity will not be possible as we deviate from the encounter with the Self. Living these eight pillars guide us to a profound path of discrimination that will help us gradually understand our true nature and thus be able to rest in a state of profound peace.
