Focus of the Month: April

Bija: The Seeds of Growth


This month we bring our attention to Roots and Seeds. Outside we will see in nature the blooming of seeds planted in years past, or in earlier months. Some of us will begin digging in the dirt to place new seeds in the earth and we will see the sprouting of those seeds in a few short weeks. The Rishis, the great seers and seekers on this path of yoga who have come before us and are amongst us today alerted us to another law of nature. Each thought we have is a seed that forms and eventually bears a karmic fruit in material form. This month, we will look at Bija in all its forms. Seeds we plant inside an Asana class with our physical habits, seed sounds in mantras, and the manas, or mind, as a place where seed thoughts begin and grow.

“Our thoughts have a materializing nature.” –Parmahansa Yogananda

We welcome you to Jaya with open hearts and open minds. We are committed to the highest quality multidimensional yogic offerings and to a continued presence in the neighborhoods we serve.
