IGNITE THE LIGHT!
My logo created by WUMI Designs has multiple meanings and points to the light we carry within. A light that must be attended to like kindling on a fire.
THE SUN & MOON SYMBOLISM
The sun and moon are powerful symbols in their own rite, but they are also symbolic in the art of yoga.
The Sanskrit word for Hatha translates to ‘force’, pointing to a system of physical movement and techniques; Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Iyengar are all Hatha Yoga. Hatha has also been described as the SUN ‘HA’ (masculine energy) and MOON ‘THA’ (feminine energy). The Sanskrit definition of yoga is ‘yoke’ or ‘union’ and in some cases ‘join’ or ‘bind’. So, it could be said that Hatha Yoga is the union or balancing of the masculine (Shiva) with the feminine (Shakti) energies in the body (yin/yang) (moon/sun).
For me, the cycles of the sun, moon, and stars (astrology) also reveal our blueprint (natal chart) and like a map, can give direction to the continuously evolving transitions and cycles we experience through life.
I also believe that there is light inside all of us. How bright the light shines is up to you! There are many ways to ignite or create a spark! Yoga is one way! And my hope, as a teacher, is to assist in creating that spark that helps to illuminate all of us! IGNITE THE LIGHT everyone!!
Namaste! The light in me bows to the light in you!
