TARA NICOLE BLAKE
Senior Yoga Teacher
Yoga classes focused on the mindful unfolding of movement through the breath and gravity as taught by Vanda Scaravelli.
Return to naturalness and ease while moving through an exploration of posture and breathing, a challenging practice for beginner and advanced students alike.
BREATHING, MOVING, STRENGTHENING, ALL WITH MINDFUL AWARENESS.
The commitment and positive energy that the students are bringing to their practice is very inspiring. Every class is an opportunity to let your stress melt away and focus on being in the present moment, alive and awake! I am thrilled so many of you have chosen to continue your yoga practice with me at Yogaroots. What we practice on the mat spills over to our daily living bringing us in closer contact with truth and authenticity leading to a life of satisfaction and love.
Consistency, dedication, and commitment to you and to yoga. Quiet and reliable. We show up without judgement and welcome everyone equally. We focus on clear expectations and instruction and you are invited to practice in a way that feels safe for you. We teach mindful awareness of ourselves and our physical and mental limitations.
You are responsible for your own body and we respect that completely.
Working with the science of our body and the laws of physics yoga becomes natural. We are not fighting against our own nature, we are celebrating and finding strength in what we already are. Working this way, our body begins to crave movement and it is no longer work. Vanda Scaravelli taught yoga as a direct experience of gravity and the laws of the universe that we can discover through practice.
Using breath as a focus point we learn to read the signals from our body more clearly. We pay attention and we learn about ourselves and our dynamic way of being.
Our breath also provides the rhythm and pace of our practice. We work with naturally arising movement of breath, amplified in asana. Vanda Scaravelli spoke about breath as a wave we can ride into every pose.
Instead of using your body to achieve a pose, use the tradition of yoga to free your body. In the end, we want to live without feeling limitations in our daily movement. We can use yoga to achieve that freedom.
Discipline and dedication are required in your practice but the reward is worth it. We intentionally do not use strict alignment 'cues' but encourage you to take responsibility for discovering the poses through consistent practice.
