What is Esoteric Yoga?
Esoteric Yoga is the yoga of stillness. It supports us to re-connect to our body, experience the quality of stillness and develop and build conscious presence. What we learn in a session is a way of living and being that we then have the choice to continue to experience, build and deepen in our day to day lives. We have all had experiences of this connection and stillness however most of us have learnt to override, shut down and basically ignore the deep wisdom our body holds. In stillness our body speaks very loudly and the wisdom that we each hold within us is constantly there for us to connect to.
What is stillness?
Stillness is a quality that we feel when we are deeply connected to ourselves. It is a quality and state of being that leaves us feeling very connected to our body, present, calm, relaxed and with a clarity of mind most people just love. In an Esoteric Yoga session we are learning to get to know what stillness feels like from our body, what supports us to stay in stillness and what takes us out of stillness. Essentially we come to realise that every choice we make, which includes everything that we do, say and think has an affect on not only ourselves but also on others. And it is our body that experiences all of this.
What is conscious presence?
Conscious presence is keeping our mind with what we are doing as we are doing it, rather than thinking of other things that are completely unrelated to what we are actually doing now. Each Esoteric Yoga session allows us to explore conscious presence and the effect being present has on our body and well-being.
