Yoga & Me Ottawa Gatineau Question Form

A question ?

We can answer

F.A.Q

What is the relationship between yoga and meditation and why link them ?

Yoga is a body-mind practice tapping into the ability of the person for spontaneous growth. This innate ability is unleashed through a simple yet subtle process of “opening up” to one’s own inner world.

This opening is no more complex than a full attention to what’s happening in one’s own body combined with specific techniques designed to encourage the manifestation of certain aspects of our inner world.
The whole purpose of yoga is that “opening up and discovery” – this “expansion of your former boundaries”.
On one hand, a way of naming that expansion is “meditation” – in this way, yoga has no other object than creating the conditions of meditation.
On the other hand, during your yoga practice, your inner attitude, your disposition to feelings and sensations is one of the major drivers of your success and your progress. Thus meditation is one of the key elements of your yoga practice.
So, as a summary, yoga leads to meditation and meditation is key element of your yoga practice. That’s why we combine them, they are two expressions of the same process.

Can I become a teacher if I can't achive the perfect postures like it's described in the books ?

Kundalini yoga is an experiential yoga. Being a teacher is being able to teach others to reach their own potential through their experience practicing a set of mind and heart opening techniques. 

To be a good teacher, you have to have two major qualities : 

1-to have experienced yourself, in depth, the benefits of the practice.

2-to have the compassion to allow others follow their own personal path of discovery through the same set of practices.

None of the two require a perfection in the form of your practice, but both require a depth in your own practice experience and a depth in your own acceptance of the human experience. 

Through your practice, your acquire this acceptance, through your practice you acquire the “knowing” of the reality you uncover, through your practice, your become able to understand other’s learning curve in their own intimate experience.

There is no need to practice perfectly, but it’s essential to perfect your own practice.
