The art and science of Yoga reaches far beyond the impressions most Westerners have of it being a series of bendy, physical exercises. Yoga is a systematic body of knowledge and practice that teaches integrated living, while living our highest good, following our deepest joy.
While yogic knowledge spans the breadth of spiritual study, herbal medicine, astrology and such, what we mostly know of yoga in the Western world is one small branch of it, called Hatha Yoga, which concentrates on the health and purity of the body. Whether you are doing Kripalu, Ashtanga, Hot Yoga, Power Yoga, Kundalini, or any other kind of yoga in a local yoga studio, you are likely doing some form of Hatha Yoga.
The goal of Hatha yoga is the purification of subtle channels that run through the body, so that we can experience unending bliss while still present in the body. It is understood that our ego and our attachments are in the way of this fountain of joy, and as such, clog our ability to tap into true abundance.
When injuries, exhaustion, discontent, overdoses and addictions set in, we must make peace with the sobering fact that we are actually part of nature, and as such, must live by earthly, mortal laws. Living in alignment with nature lets us tap into an infinite well of power and creativity, the very life force that continually creates this amazing universe in which we live. Yoga is a way to trade in the never-ending rollercoaster search for temporary highs for a life that welcomes eternal bliss.
YEM is where yoga and healing meet. YEM focuses on the flow of life-force energy in the body and weaves together the influences of meditation, medical intuition, and holistic healing with Hatha, Iyengar, Scaravelli, Ashtanga and Tantra yoga.
YEM infuses the body/being with consciousness. Bringing together subtle attention to yoga postural alignment, mindful-breathing, meditations and chi energy-work, YEM awakens the latent intelligence within the body/being and guides practitioners more deeply into the present. It clears the body’s energy channels to tap into unlimited power and live with greater ease and peace. Attendees to Parvati’s YEM classes and workshops, whether they are beginners or longtime yoga teachers, come away glowing and expressing profound appreciation for the benefits they already feel.
YEM is a gift to dedicated practitioners of yoga or meditation, while also being accessible to beginners. The asanas are simple, yet effective, as the focus is on the awareness of breath-energy as it moves in the body.
Through mindful breathing, energy work and subtle attention to yoga poses, you will explore how to let your body become receptive to life-force energy and direct energy where healing is needed. You can experience deep relaxation and increased health, vitality and well-being.
You do not need to invest in props, blocks, bolsters or other materials to get started with YEM. A yoga mat is all you need, and if you don’t have one, you can very well practice on any lightly cushioned surface such as an area rug.
