tofino yoga - unify through yoga

Unify through Yoga

by Dawn Batenchuk, Tofino


The nature of all life continues on, ebbing and flowing constantly changing and adapting. Beneath this unfolding beauty of life there lies an underlying rhythm, a breath so to speak, a unifying truth. Through the practice of yoga one might tune into that breath of life within themselves and bring harmony to the mind, body and spirit.

Yoga means "Unify" and is designed to stretch, cleanse and center the body. The first step and basis of experiencing yoga is breath, for our breathing symbolises life and our connection to it. It is through the awareness of breathing that we can make our first steps towards a calmer, clearer state of mind. "Pranayama" is the term used to describe breathing techniques that are designed to cleanse, purify, tone the body and enable the concentration of the meditative yoga experience.

The next step forward is the union of breath and "Asanas", or body postures, which combined ease the mind toward peace and clarity.

Daily practice and a keen ear to the body's needs is an easy route towards health and happiness. The more limber your body is the more vibrant and young you feel. So stretch and open up to the enjoyment and freedom of a loose body and eased mind. Listen to the rhythm of life and relax into it.
