Abhyasa - Practice with Perseverance !
Shiva Samhita says “Through practice comes perfection; through practice one will attain liberation".
In the Yoga Sutras (1:13), Patanjali defines Abhyasa as, “Abhyasa is the effort towards gaining stability in that state of cessation of the fluctuations of the mind".
In Sutra 1:14, he further elaborates, "But this practice is firmly grounded only after it has been cultivated properly and for a long time uninterruptedly".
In his teachings, Ramana Maharshi also stressed that, “No one succeeds without effort. Those who succeed owe their success to perseverance.”
Practice, Perseverance, Passion and Patience are the 4 Ps to success. Practice makes you perfect in your skills, perseverance offers you the required momentum for keeping you in the race irrespective of the prospective outcome, Passion keeps you glued to the target and above all Patience helps you wait till the zenith of all the former qualities making you most successful.
The circle is a powerful symbol that encapsulates a multitude of ideas, including totality, wholeness, perfection, timelessness, and eternity. It embodies the infinite nature of energy and the all-encompassing inclusivity of the universe. Our logo is surrounded by concentric converging circles and has 108 segments, with '108' inscribed at the centre. This number holds significant spiritual and cultural significance in many traditions around the world, including yoga and Buddhism.
It represents the idea of completeness, wholeness, and the ultimate reality of the universe. By incorporating this symbol into our logo, we aim to embody these principles and communicate our commitment to promoting mindfulness and holistic wellness.
The significance of the number 108 is rooted in its representation of completeness, wholeness, and the interconnectedness of all things. It is a symbol of the ultimate reality of the universe, and is often used in spiritual and cultural practices as a way to connect with the divine and access higher levels of consciousness. In yoga, there are 108 sacred points on the body, and there are 108 mala beads on a traditional prayer bead necklace. In Buddhism, there are 108 delusions or forms of ignorance that one must overcome on the path to enlightenment.
Every person emits a unique energy or "vibe" that can have a profound effect on those around them. Some individuals may make us feel nervous or uneasy, while others may bring us a sense of calm and relaxation. This energy is often referred to as an aura, and is believed to be an essential part of our being. At 108 Aura Yoga, we recognize the importance of maintaining a healthy and purified aura. By working with individuals to cleanse and purify their aura through the practice of yoga, we aim to promote not only physical health but also mental and spiritual well-being. Through regular yoga practice, we can cultivate a healthy body and a calm and centred mind.
As we focus on our breath and movement, we begin to release any negative energy that may be trapped within us, allowing for a more free-flowing and vibrant aura. In this way, the practice of yoga serves as a powerful tool for purifying our aura and promoting overall wellness. We invite all individuals to join us on this journey towards a more healthy, balanced, and energetically vibrant life.
Vaheeda Tariq, first practiced yoga for the physical benefits hoping to lose weight and become more fit. As her body became stronger and healthier, she soon discovered that her yoga mat was a place to find a sense of contentment, self-awareness, and mind-body connection.
When Vaheeda decided to enroll for Hatha Yoga teacher training, she only hoped to deepen her own practice, however, the more she learned and, the more her intention turned to teach and sharing the practice she loves with others. As a teacher, Vaheeda realizes that yoga is not a "one size fits all'' practice and that every person is on a different path, so she pursued her study of yoga and did her Masters in Yoga from S-VYASA, learning more about how yoga can be applied to help and heal people with lifestyle diseases and common ailments. Curious about different styles she further did her teachers training course in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Vaheeda further did her training in Rehab Pilates from APPI so that she can use the best of both Yoga and Pilates in her way of teaching. All the experiences she had while studying different forms helped her put together a style of her own. Vaheeda has been practicing yoga since 2010 and teaching group classes since her 1st yoga teacher training course in 2013 .She has been taking online classes since 2020 .She has been working in association with Consult Yoga. She has also been teaching children between the ages of 6 to 16 of SSVM Institutions and working as faculty of the school. She is working with Lodestone Healthcare as a Yoga consultant helping the team create yoga protocols and is conducting group classes for Postnatal and Prenatal women.
She tries to offer her students, be it adults or children, the opportunity to take that path in their own way at their own pace, to modify when needed and to honor how they feel at all times. Vaheeda believes in the motto Abhyasa - Practice with perseverance. The very heart of yoga is Abhyasa - steady effort in the direction of your goal. Practice not just to get it right, Practice so that you will never get it wrong. Vaheeda finds immense joy, satisfaction, and inspiration in seeing students discover themselves in their personal yoga journey and hopes to nurture and encourage them along their path.
