Inner Power Yoga is about cultivating a deep awareness of who you are. It's about understanding your own quiet strength.
Inner Power is about remembering your inner light, the one you were born with, the light that we share, that connects us as a community. Having Inner Power means having the capacity to recognize the strength and light in others. Inner Power is about acknowledging the shadows too. It's the ability to crack your heart open to it all.
When you remember the inter connectedness of all things, THAT is real power. Power is having spirit, fortitude, resilience, endurance. Strong Inner Power Yogis know how to offer kindness and selflessness. They can find compassion, patience, and acceptance deep down, but that doesn't mean they always have to be strong. Because of course they understand that dark and light, weak and strong, fear and courage, concealing and revealing (just like expanding & contracting and rooting & rising) are inseparable.
Inner Power is spiritual but transcends religious dogma.
Inner Power Yoga is an experience. It's difficult to grasp intellectually. As you all know, understanding comes from embodying the teaching, from living it, not from the words themselves. I truly believe, however, that the words Inner Power go a long way towards describing the practice of this tribe.
INNER is spiritual, emotional, energetic, thoughtful, psychological, mindful
POWER can take many forms. I like to think of this power as an electric current. As in infinite potential, the infinite power supply we have when we connect into the rest of the universe, when we remember to plug in. And yes, power means physical strength and muscles and health and durability, and aren't we about that too?
YOGA I was thinking about the name and how neatly it encompasses
all 5 koshas in an interesting way:
"Power" refers to both the first and last. Annamaya (physical strength and health) and Anandamaya (spiritual bliss/connection to higher/deeper realm) And "Inner" embodies all the rest Pranamaya (breath, energetics) Manomaya (thought, emotion) and Vijnanamaya (discerning wisdom, conscience, will) (So, gross body, subtle body and causal body are all contained. '
(The WHOLE self = Inner Power Yoga)
