Atma in Sanskrit means the inner Self or Soul. It is the essence of who we truly are and the source of our energy, light and power. Yoga in Sanskrit means union, it is the natural state and condition of our being – body, mind, and Spirit are One. Atma Yoga is a style of yoga developed by Saul David Raye with the blessings of his teachers. It is a holistic and heart-centered approach to Yoga and the path of spiritual awakening that recognizes each of us as sacred channels of living, breathing Cosmic Energy. Atma Yoga draws on the teachings of Yoga, Bhakti, Tantra, Ayurveda and all forms of Universal light, love and wisdom.
It is an evolutionary approach to practice that honors each being’s unique Self, creativity and Spirit. A practice not based on performance, competition or achieving, but on accepting, experiencing and connecting with the Universal Spirit, which flows through all things. An Atma Yoga session takes an intuitive and exploratory approach to our being, weaving together heart wisdom teachings, dynamic asana, breathwork, meditation, chanting, music, intuitive movement and many other techniques to experience the infinite Source within.
All levels are welcome and students are invited to honor their own personal evolution and go at their own pace. You are invited to participate in group energy that creates the space which allows for us all to go deeper into healing and transformation.
