Yoga means “to yoke, to join, to connect.” What are we connecting to? That’s the question. Sometimes, it’s to our body, awareness, the heart, but basically, it’s to this very subtle and expansive moment. Yoga is the relationship. Or, sometimes I like to say the REAL SHIP.
Sonata is a Latin word which literally means “sounded” or “played on an instrument.” This word echoes my personal experience of yoga, as intentions, actions, and spontaneous expressions become catalyzed through the instrument of the body. “So that’s what my body is doing all day you ask…?” Yes! That’s what’s happening in your body right now.
Starting inside the flame of your own heart, may the warmth of your own radiance inspire you to engage fully in this playful dance of art. May this practice benefit all beings.
