Yoga to Sacred Music

This article is a brief review of a Yoga Sacred Music Class. Whoopee! I finally got invited to Yoga to Sacred Music, if you are curious as to what that is here is a brief explanation from the website:
In this class, we turn the lights off, light candles, and play soothing and inspiring music to our flow of yoga asanas. This class allows students to focus more on the mental and spiritual aspects of the practice, while still receiving the physical benefits. Verbal instruction is minimal, therefore we ask that you take at least 10 Hot Yoga classes before attending the Sacred Music class."

This class really was relaxing. I forgot all about getting it right, and focusing on my dristy. My focus had to come from somewhere else - my inner sense of balance was called forth. The whole experience was breath-taking.

A hand stretched palm flat on the floor while every other limb is contortioned and twisted into ecstasy is no small feat. The lack of self judgment came from my not being able to see my reflection in the studio mirror - this gave me the added oomph to hold each pose a little longer than I ever had before.

What was the Yoga to Sacred Music class like:

The room is dark except for 7 candles, each representing a Chakra. There is melodic music playing softly in the background. The room is heated just like any other Hot Yoga or Bikram class. The teacher only calls out the pose in English and Sanskrit. We flow into each pose, choosing our level of difficulty. Every class is different, what you could did yesterday may not be what you can do today. Honor your level.

The yoga speaks for itself. I hope you enjoyed my review. If you've attended a Yoga to Sacred Music tell me about your experience I would love to hear your thoughts!
