Divine Connection:
Yoga and Your Higher Power

While not all Yoga practitioners practice Yoga as a spiritual practice, Yoga is, itself, a spiritual practice. 

For those who do come to practice seeking deeper connection, understanding, and contentment with their relationship to the divine, and even for those who come to practice weighted with questions around their own faith and spirituality, Yoga philosophy offers clear and precise framework for exploring and navigating each individual’s relationship to the divine and higher sense. 

No matter what faith, denomination, or undetermined affiliation one holds Yoga frames our connection to higher power through īśvarapraṇidhāna or surrender to one’s own divinity. 

Īśvarapraṇidhāna in practice both on and off the mat allows one to cultivate courage to trust and act in alignment with one’s own intuition. In return, the practitioner’s  experience of life shifts. The events of life take on new meaning, joy and purpose return, and the mundane becomes extraordinary. 

This is the spirituality of Yoga, the practice that creates a sacred shift of perspective and offers a path to transforming our suffering and liberating our life.

Join Chase Bossart for this special event Divine Connection: Yoga and Your Higher Power and learn how Yoga has always been intended to connect you to your inherent divinity.
