Why Yin Yang Jung Yoga?


Yin Yang:
the yin/yang symbol represents the ancient Chinese understanding of how things work. The outer circle represents "everything", while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies, called yin (black) and yang (white), which cause everything to happen. They are not completely black or white, just as things in life are not completely black or white, and they cannot exist without each other. While yin would be dark, passive, downward, cold, contracting, and weak, yang would be bright, active, upward, hot, expanding, and strong. The shape of the yin and yang sections of the symbol actually gives you a sense of the continual movement of these two energies, yin to yang and yang to yin, causing everything to happen; just as things expand and contract, and temperature changes from hot to cold.

Jung:
a Swiss psychiatrist and psychologist who founded the school of Analytical Psychology. He was a visionary genius whose intuition and experience have guided millions in the discovery of the unconscious. He was also one of the few of his generation to explore Eastern practices and understand and appreciate their meaning and their power. Many of his ideas are related to the philosophy of yoga, and in particular to the yin/yang concept of the opposites that is at the root of everything.

Yoga:
the practice of a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline. The goal of yoga is the attainment of a state of spiritual insight and tranquillity to be reached via a physical practice that leads to meditation and ultimately to enlightenment. The Sanskrit word yoga has the literal meaning of "yoke", from a root yuj meaning to join, to unite, or to attach.
There are many styles of yoga that reflect different emphases on particular yogic tools or philosophies. Hatha yoga is geared towards self-realisation by practising postures (asana), purification procedures (kriyas), gestures (mudras), breathing (pranayama), and meditation. In the word hatha (ha: the sun and tha: the moon) we find again the concept of the opposites. Ha-tha yoga: the union of the sun and the moon.
Yoga and Jung have empowered me to make radical changes in my life to pursue my passions, one of which is to share what I have learnt with others by teaching.
Although yoga is known in the west mostly because of the physical practice (asanas), it is much more than that: in ISHTA (Integrated System of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda) we like to call it the technology of life, which will allow you to become what you need to become.
Wherever you are in your life, in your mind and in your body, yoga can help you to make your journey better, and to open new horizons, within and without.
