At Home Practice Can Be Wonderful

Finding The Right Space
First things first. You do not need a ton of space. You just need to be able to lay down a mat and hold your arms out in a T shape. That's all the room you need. Try to close the door and take some private time. ZOOM makes it easy to take classes as last minute as 2 hours registration before class. So, with at home practice, you're always ready to go! Turning your audio and video on and off gives an extra layer of convenience and privacy. But we at Groovy Lotus LOVE to see your beautiful practice!

Yoga History and Philosophy

The practices of yoga are designed to guide us towards an experience of Yoga. Derived from the Sanskrit root “Yuj,” meaning “to yoke, or join,” the experience of Yoga is freedom from the feeling of separateness, creating a mind blowing sense of intimate belonging. The original recorded experiences and teachings of yoga arose in India, some scholars say as early as 3000 B.C.E. We can trace the evolution of teachings through the texts of the Vedas, Upanishads, Yoga Sutras, and the Bhagavad Gita. The physical practice of yoga (asana practice) gained traction in the West in the 20th century as a means to attain health, beauty, and counter the effects of aging. And yet, no matter the reasons for practicing, a magic occurs through the practice of yoga. As the usual tensions relax, a deeper inquiry arises, sparking a quest to discover our true nature, allowing life to be richer and more wonderful.(yogaanytime)
