Have you ever asked yourself why you are going to a yoga class or workshop? You may answer to become more fit and flexible or to find your center and invite more peace into your life.
Today we would like to invite you to reflect on the intentions of a Blissology Yoga class.
When you come to a Blissology Yoga class, you definitely will get more fit and flexible, but this is only the tip of the iceberg.
We have clear intentions about what our classes are about. Curious? Have a look at this five-minute video from our Somatics and Sequencing Course or continue reading.
In this post, I wanted to share with you what the intention is of a Blissology Yoga class. This might be a refresher for some of you, but I think it’s super important to get clear on this so you can see where we’re coming from philosophically, even though this is a course about sequencing and somatics, the philosophy is guiding our underlying philosophy. So without that, we’re kind of driving around in the dark with no headlights.
Why setting or having an intention is important.
The intention is important because I want you to know that when you are teaching your class, you are never just teaching a yoga class. Please don’t use the term just. You’re never just doing anything, especially not just teaching yoga. And it is definitely not just fitness, and it’s definitely not just relaxation.
But I would love for you to feel that you are creating a ritual for people. Now, ritual is a loaded word, but I wanted to tell you what I mean when I say ritual. A ritual is a consciously performed action that connects us to a belief system. So every time you do a class, it’s meant to connect you to a belief system.
And the main one, by the way, is that we belong to each other and we belong to nature. That is the main ritual of a Pathology Yoga class at least.
The intentions behind a Blissology Yoga class.
So at any point, if you’re lost for a theme, this factor, the theme, feel free to borrow these. I mean, this is for me what the yellow classes are all about and I hope that we are aligned on this one. These are the intentions of our Blissology Yoga classes and these are what are guiding all the sequences.
