Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga – All Levels
It is a unique form of hatha yoga that incorporates the principles of Dr. Deepak Chopra’s international bestselling classic, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. This practice integrates 5,000-year-old Vedic wisdom and body-centered restful awareness techniques such as asana, meditation, pranayama, sun salutation series with Sanskrit mantras, flows and chakra opening practices.
The All Levels class brings awareness to the stillness between each asana and moves at a mindful pace. This class will provide you with clear instruction in the basic foundational poses to help you improve your flexibility, balance, muscle tone and endurance. Variations are given to accommodate the beginner to the more advanced student. Through these timeless principles, we cultivate balance and calm in the midst of life’s daily stresses.
Benefits of a Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga class include:
- Improved flexibility
- Enhanced balance
- Increased muscle tone
- Greater endurance
- Calm mind
- Deeper understanding of yoga’s essence: the union of body, mind, and spirit
Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga – Level II
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga – Level II incorporates all the benefits of an All Levels class while emphasizing on more movement, balance, and strengthening asanas. This Level II class will feature a more moderate pace, while also introducing more complex postures than the All Levels class. This class is designed to help you cultivate more inward stillness while maintaining one-pointed focus on your outward practice. In addition, the Level II class focuses on strengthening your core to prepare you for exploring more advanced postures.
This class is recommended for students with a regular yoga practice, who have a basic awareness of yoga postures and their own bodies, and are willing to modify accordingly. This is a wonderful opportunity to evolve your asana practice while being infused with the essence of Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Success principles.
