Growing A Practice
Central to any teaching of Yoga is Dharma — the nature of things, and your own personal path within them. Leaf to Root Yoga considers our most instructive “text” on Dharma to be the natural world, starting with yourself — your own body and mind. With compassionate and honest attention, a variety of practices and tools, we grow our ability to connect with Satguru, the “true teacher”, within.
Before we flower, before we fruit in any sustained way, we must have well-prepared ground to rise from.
Perfect for developing a personal practice, returning to practice after injury, and identifying personal modifications.
Sharing insight and experiences with those seeking connection, practical application, and to create a journey of their own.
Join Our Journey
Consider yourself a gardener of your mind. In the words of Buddhist Teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh, “the seeds that are watered are the ones that will grow.” As we tend the soil and the seeds inside the self, we begin to grow more of what we consciously want our life to be about. In the garden there are many tools that can help us along the way. A shovel. Some stakes. A gardening hose or two. In yoga, it is the same. We have the breath. The physical poses, and mantra or three. Most importantly, we have our own attention and curiosity.
