Yoga we teach

By now, many of our readers see that what we teach about yoga is very different.  Although Lisa teaches Vinyasa which has very helpful attributes, the yoga we teach as Life Balance is different.  Our understandings of poses, what they mean and how we can use them is not what you will find anywhere else on the net.  Nor will you find it in any book.

If we were to name the yoga we teach.  It would be Jnana yoga. The yoga of knowledge or the yoga of wisdom.

To understand yoga in a different way, we need to study the word.  Yoga- Union- Yoking.  What does it mean to be Yoked.  There is a lovely line in the bible which says it all.  Matthew 11:30 https://biblehub.com/matthew/11-30.html  In times gone by, to be yoked was seen as hard work like the oxen that ploughed the fields, oppression or slavery.  Looking through the Yoga lens.  Yoking- Union – Yoga makes our burden light.  Why ?  How?

A key aspect of Jnana yoga is using spiritual knowledge

Anyone seeing any connections yet ?

If you have been reading our articles from the start, we have been teaching Jnana yoga as such.  It may be useful for our readers to look at the following link on Envelope Yoga. https://lifebalancestudio.co.uk/envelope-yoga/  When we observe things from different angles or perspectives.  Even better from the truth of the spirit, things become clear.  Remember when we look at something it changes.  This is why we close our articles by wishing everyone Unity with their Spirits.  Namaste. 

Yoga we teach

The connection with our own spirits allows us to see differently, know and feel differently.  Alas, there is so much help at hand but only if we learnt how to find it, correctly and safelyWe will revert back to Matthew 11:30.  It is possible to unburden our physical life by applying spiritual knowledge and guidance.  This then helps us through the tough times.  We use our spiritual knowledge to free us from material pain and suffering.

We use our knowledge, thoughts and insight. 

Please read the following links these will help all look at things from another perspective: https://lifebalancestudio.co.uk/noble-silence-or-being-noble/


One thing that Jnana yoga teaches is that knowledge is only knowledge unless applied, we need to know how to use it to help us, to benefit us.  We hold the pose!

We need to go back to the beginning.  Knowledge is only knowledge unless we have the wisdom to use it.  We need to ask where did the knowledge of yoga come from?

We wish you unity with your spirits
