About the event

What is yoga? In the Yoga Sutras, Pantajali defines yoga as:

योगश्चित्तवृत्तिनिरोधः॥२॥ “yogascitta vritti nirodhah” (Sanskrit).

This translates to English as, "Yoga is the restraint of the modifications of the mind-stuff".

It took me several years of teaching yoga (almost seven!) to come to the realization that this definition means that yoga was always about mental health - even thousands of years ago. In a simple way: we can be peaceful and happy when we learn to control the mind. We learn to control the mind by practicing and studying yoga. If we don't learn to control the mind, the mind will control us.

According to the American Psychiatric Association, mental illness is experienced by 19% of U.S. adults. According to the National Institute for Mental Health, approximately 31% of all American adults will experience an anxiety disorder at some time in their life. And the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that more than 300 million people worldwide suffer from depression.  The WHO expects depression to be the biggest health problem on earth by 2030.

Everyone has mental health. Everyone experiences emotional imbalances from time to time. And In 2014, the Society for Neuroscience reported that 60% of Americans feel they are under a great deal of stress at least once per week.

Unfortunately, many of us grew up with so many issues in the way mental health was taught to us. It was stigmatized, thought of as separate from physical health, and we weren't educated on an Eastern approach to wellbeing - drawing in all aspects of the many layers of the human being to bring a balanced approach to mental wellbeing. And this is why we need yoga.
