“To be grounded is to be connected to our emotional-electrical currents, to the waves of our needs and images and the rhythms of actions which comprise our physical-psychic processes: the rhythms of the human and the natural ground.” Stanley Keleman
I recently met with my teacher for continuing education and when I asked him what he wanted me to focus on in my practice, he lead me right back to the Eight Limbs (Raja Yoga). We didn't discuss advanced Asana, the Bhagavad Gita or practice my Sanskrit. We talked about life and how focused I am on the Eight Limbs, applied to my life.
Origins of Yoga It is a little-known fact that Yoga first began in Africa, specifically Kemet (ancient Egypt). Yoga, which means union, is for everybody. I would like to see people of African descent reclaim this ancient holistic practice for themselves and incorporate it into their modern lives.
