If you’re like me you go to a Yoga class not just for the asana practice, but for the little snippets of wisdom, “dharma stuff”, that the teacher imparts throughout the class. Most of us don’t have time, or don’t make the time, to sit down and read about things such as Patanjali, chakras, the yamas, Ganesha, Hannuman, and to translate some of the Sanskrit phrases that we hear all the time. So, if you don’t know what any, or all, of these things are, but would like to know, then you’re in luck. In this blog I’m going to give you Yoga snippets that are short enough for you to have time to read, but diverse enough to slowly increase your knowledge of all things Yoga.
So, where does the name Yogini Guru come from? Well, I am a “Yogini” (a female who practices Yoga) and a “Guru” (commonly translated from Sanskrit to English as “teacher”). It’s as simple as that.
And, how and why am I, “Helping you reach samadhi”? By reading my blog posts, and increasing your knowledge of all things Yoga, you’re increasing your chances of reaching samadhi. Samadhi can be translated from the Sanskrit to the English as “experiencing oneness with the universe” – otherwise known as enlightenment. We can probably all use some help with that.
I hope you enjoy my blog!
P.S. Some of the hotlinks that I’ve provided in my posts will point you to a place where you can purchase specific books, music and other yoga resources that I personally think are worth owning. You should know that if you do buy something after clicking one of these links, I will be given a small commission from the vendor as a “thank you” for pointing you to their store.
