Yoga Citta Vritti Nirodhah

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 1.2

Citta - Mind
Vritti - the influences of the mind
Nirodha - to cease, to still

The Eastern Psychology of Yoga is the process of stilling the mind through the body via the breath.

Yoga is an ancient practice dating back 5000 thousand years, and modern scientific research is validating its benefits for improving our health and wellbeing.

Yoga comes from the Sanskrit "yuj"
to yoke, to unite, to connect

Land Acknowledgement

I wish to acknowledge the land upon which I am grateful to live and work. For thousands of years, this has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, Anishanabec, and Haudenosaunee, and it is also home to many diverse First Nation, Metis and Inuit peoples. It is covered by Treaty 13. May we continue to work towards Truth so we can achieve Reconciliation. 

Ending Caste Apartheid

Yoga is a practice for liberation from the influences of the mind, to achieve Self-Sovereignity (control over one's self). Yoga also recognizes our interconnectedness. The goal of yoga contradicts the notion of Caste. It is clear that the those created and enforce the Caste system, abuse their power and knowledge to assert dominance over those who they deemed less "pure." While the Caste system is illegal under the Constitution of India, it continues to be practiced. I reject the Caste system and call for an end to practices that enforce caste-apartheid. We must work for equitable opportunity for all.
