12:23 pm - Importance of Laya Yoga

The term laya means dissolution, melting of all karmic conditioning and limitations that have accrued as result of various occurrences and incidents which took place in the course of one's entire lifetime. Laya Yoga is a practical art of meditation and contemplation based on the ancient knowledge relating to chakras (energy centres).
The succession line, i.e. the spiritual tradition from which Laya Yoga originated, is also called Himavanti, or, in more accurate terms, Himavanti Confraternity Brotherhood (HCB). The seven-stage path (marga) of spiritual growth that causes one to dissolve in an infinite grace of the ocean of compassion of the highest God is a basis for the entire spirituality represented by successions of Gurus (Spiritual Leaders), who in turn pass on one of the most ancient and esoteric forms of Yoga teaching. Traditionally, in the lead of the entire transmission line as well as its forms appear: Guru Shiva (The Merciful One), more familiar in his numerous emanations as the Venerable Father, Babaji, and his spouse, known as Devi Parvati (Daughter of the Mountain, i.e. the venerable Mahatma Himavant). Acharyas: those ordained in the process of spiritual transmission to play the part of messengers or apostles of the succession line belonging the Vedic Laya Yoga, constitute the groundwork of yoga teachings.
Laya is a process of gradual absorption of basic energies that generate our material form so that Consciousness (Chittam) becomes released (liberated, redeemed) from all phenomena that are not spiritual, or where the divine enlightening power of Pure Spirit is concealed inside.

10:47 am - jala and sutra neti

I've been performing jala neti using a Water Pik with a nasal attachment for several years.  I've been using primarily the stage one irrigation, but I'm curious about going to stage 2, as I find that I experience congestion in the back of my sinuses that jala neti is unable to get.  I'm curious if anyone can make any recommendations to websites, or maybe practioners in my area that could instruct me in stage 2 jala neti?  And does anyone know where I can find string or tubing suitable for sutra neti?

Any help would be much appreciated!  Thank you!

6:50 pm - Hi, I'm new here

Hi, I'm new to this community, but not that new to yoga.
I've been doing it for a couple years now.
I just have a question that I'd like to surface with more
experienced yogis. . .
I've heard about the growing cardio workout of Yoga Dance.
I've even seen some dvds on it. I was just wondering if I
did that, would it ruin my yoga practice, or take away
the ancient wisdom it gives to me?
Yoga Dance seems a little new age. Is it? Can anyone please
help me? Thank you.

Promo for a new yoga comm!


For followers of Integral Yoga, or for people interested in that style of yoga. You don't need to be a devotee of Swami Satchidinanda, just interested in yoga. Come with questions about the technique if you wish. Also people interested in Sivananda Yoga are also especially welcome. All are welcome to join but the focus is on Integral Yoga style of yoga.

12:40 pm - Yogivation

Well, hello. I enjoy yoga for health and recreational purposes, but have no one to do it with me. I was part of a postnatal yoga class where I could take my baby, but she is getting too active for it now. I need to save money and I don't put my daughter in daycare, so I can't join another class. I like to do it in my back yard, but it's hard to get into the habit of just getting out there and doing it. I'm hoping that by reading the posts here, I'll feel more involved in a yoga 'group' and will be more likely to practice it more often. Happy posting. Chop, chop.

Bee-yoo-tiful picture, by the way. Do you know where it is?
