FINDING BALANCE AND HARMONY THROUGH THE GUNAS, THE 3 QUALITIES OF ENERGY
spiritual discipline of Yoga can be said to be about harmonising and balancing
the three gunas - tamasa, rajas and satva - the three basic characteristics or qualities of nature
that are present in all things, including our body and mind.
Referring to the body, heart and mind, through our practices,
we aim to vibrant harmony by transforming tamas (getting rid of all the "junk" as we can),
balancing rajas (cultivating a balanced way of moving and acting) and
developing sattva (lightness, peace, joy and self-awareness).
The main goal of Yoga is that of aiming for a more sattvic life, -
with a positive and balanced presence of rajas and sattva, wiht a higher frequency of purity and liveliness -
in the body and actions, in our thinking and feelings, in our heart and intentions.
Once we understand how the gunas work,
we will be able to better
understand and navigate our inner world,
and to work with what life is bringing us moment by moment.

Let's deepen the experience of ASANA and PRANAYAMA
as a way to balance and harmonise the three gunas by "detoxing" our physical and subtle body.
Let's explore the MEDITATION as a way to move beyond mind and emotions,
accessing the sattvic space of our higher self and integrating that frequency and qualities into daily life.
Let's learn about food, movement, practical wisdom and awareness of our thoughts, actions and inputs
related to the balance of the three gunas.
Cultivating the ability to identify and understand the nature of the gunas,
not only we can find balance and insight,
also we get closer to seeing the universal truth of Oneness.
