THE YOGA OF YOGA...

       To be clear... Saith Yoga is not some style of yoga proclaiming to be better than other styles.  It is quite literally speaking to the universal requirement of all Human Beings practicing any kind of Healing, Awakening, or Wisdom based art, to face the very essence of what all Authentic Wisdom across the Globe through time has been calling us to face.  And it is to see clearly, and then kick, the greatest habit of all;  Making oneself into an entity... a thing... an object, which eclipses us from the Source of Life itself.  It's an evolutionary stage of culture making that's so deeply embedded in our consciousness that no one has ever had to come out and explicitly say that we are separate it in those literal words for it to have become the very foundation upon which we think, perceive, build our lives, and move through life.  Because of this, we get stunted.  And it is the root of all dysfunction in every aspect of life from the personal level to the collective level on a global scale.  Yoga (as well as the myriad Wisdom teachings across the planet) has sought to address this for thousands of years. 

      The drive behind the Yoga of yoga is two-fold... 

...One, to Liberate Yoga in the 21st Century from the confines of these deeply entrenched thinking patterns that have plagued humanity since the beginning.   We do this by dissociating Yoga from the tribal and sectarian mentality of humanity's past and present so that Yoga can become a Global Name for a practice infinitely more diverse than what we have come to associate with Yoga thus far.  In other words, Yoga must be liberated from the confines of the same objectifying habits that Authentic Wisdom has been calling us to heal as this was the whole point of Classical Yoga from the beginning.  However, this does not require us to go backwards to the Classical Yoga of ancient times.  But rather, to accelerate forward to the Classical Yoga yet to be realized in our modern times.  This goes hand in hand with addressing the "symptom" of "Pop Yoga" culture which has naively eclipsed the essence of Classical Yoga with the superficial focuses characteristic of vanity-based, objectifying popular culture...In other words...yoga itself needs Yoga!  And that's the Yoga of yoga.

...Two, to bring forth the profound trans-technical Awareness-Practices of Authentic Yoga into the realms of the yoga we have grown familiar with.  Asana (Posture), Pranayama (Breathing), etc. are all ready to evolve past the fragmented stage of development we have known which have still been greatly impeded by habitual, un-Yogic, and objectifying practices.  Granted, there have been wonderful developments in Yoga in recent decades just by virtue popularizing of yoga and its amazing impact on the culture's openness to alternative approaches to health.   However, it would be Anti-Yoga to turn a blind eye any longer to the obvious delay in our Yogic Evolution due to using the same familiar, yet crippling technology of teaching and informing ourselves and our students in order to impart the Wisdom of Yoga.   Saith Yoga's mission is to provide a more potent, evolving technology of teaching and practice suitable for the  magnitude of what Yoga is capable of Becoming in our Lives.
