Fine Tuning Your Practice

Fundamental

Adjective - forming a necessary base or core; of central importance

Noun - a central or primary rule or principle on which something is based

Here at the Atma Center we have a series of classes called Fundamental Yoga. Although it is seen as our entry level, its importance to your overall success in making meaningful progress, both to and within other levels, cannot be overestimated.

In the Fundamental Yoga classes, you begin to cultivate a level of awareness that comes from feeling movement and its effects, from finding the nature of the breath, and from learning how to let go, be still and release from the chaos of daily living. It is a process of connecting to the very core of our being.

Remember when a radio had knobs and a station had to be tuned in? There was lots of static between stations, but when you found a signal it was necessary to slow down the turning of the knob and adjust it carefully to get the best reception. There needed to be a very precise adjustment to connect fully with the message/music being broadcast by the station. Sometimes distance precluded a clear signal or the broadcast strength was weak. And if you were traveling in a vehicle, the signal would be lost after some time and it was necessary to begin the process again.

We come to yoga class broadcasting the static from the world but as we adjust ourselves carefully in the practices we begin to find the signal. We hear the message of our body encouraging us to move and stretch. We hear the music of the breath moving rhythmically in and out. And during this time and space we can distance ourselves from the mental chatter so we can find our inner peace.

We fine-tune ourselves in Fundamentals. We connect with our “necessary base or core that is of central importance.”

When was the last time you took a Fundamental Yoga class?
