“Yoga is the cessation or inhibition of the fluctuations and variations of the mind.”
The word Yoga in Sanskrit means “union,” “harmony,” or “integration.” It is both a philosophical system and science of self-awareness. This understanding of yoga is the foundation of our Yoga Kona Hawaii practice.

Yoga is a process through which one can learn how to live an integrated life, reaching a state of consciousness in which fluctuations of the mind – thoughts and emotions – cease.
We can then perceive our true Self, the source of all creation. This Self has many names depending upon the religious tradition: “God,” “Goddess,” “Brahman,” “Allah,” “Jah,” and “Buddha.”
The ultimate goal of yoga is to attain a direct experience with this true Self. Interim goals are peace, balance, and contentment. Patanjali, the creator of yoga, describes an eight-step process. The process is known as the eight limbs, or in Sanskrit, Ashtanga (ash=eight and anga=limbs). They involve disciplining the mind and body to break one’s identification with the false self (the egoic mind) so you can awaken to yourself.
