High On Yoga has just had its first birthday!
First part of the celebration is announcing a new weekend class - something you have been asking for a lot since we stopped our Saturday classes last year.
So here we go. Next Sunday at 17:00 we are starting a new vinyasa class for all levels. It will be led permanently by Mateusz.
The class will be called YOGASTAH and promises a very vigorous, meditative, heart-changing and spirits-lifting practice in a very High On Yoga manner.
ABOUT THE CLASS:
“Yogasthah kuru karmani
sangam tyaktva dhananjaya
siddhy-asiddhyoh samo bhutva
samatvam yoga uchyate"
"Arise in Yoga and perform your actions
firm in discipline with a steady mind
O Arjuna! Abandon all attachment
to success or failure. Such evenness
of mind is called yoga"
— Bhagavad Gita 2.48
This is what Lord Krishna said to the warrior Arjuna in India's greatest book - Bhagavad Gita. This famous quote was an inspiration for a special kind of yoga class where intense asana practice turns into a state of trans in movement while sweating and breath transforms into meditation.
A Yogastah class has a very precisely directed steady rhythm and is set at quite a fast pace.
The whole course is led without any philosophical or spiritual talks. Only at the end of the 90-minute course a meditation and mantra session takes place.
YOGASTAH is meant for physical and spiritual empowerment. YOGASTAH means to arise in yoga and that is the purpose of the class.
