GRAHA YOGA RETREAT

IBIZA, SPAIN

WHAT IS GRAHA YOGA?

Graha Yoga is the art of mental and emotional self identification with be forces of gravity and magnetism. Graha is a Sanskrit word. It means "planet" or "force." Gravity is a force which is constant and magnetism fluctuates. Gravity is based on the quantity of matter. Magnetism is based on the quality of matter. Both of them are a function of distance, or space between objects. Consciousness is based on life. Without life, there is no observable consciousness. Life is based on physics and chemistry. Biology is possible within the intersection of chemistry and physics. The unit of life is the organism. A perspective, within a physical structure makes a consciousness. Awareness is stimulus response and concentration is the ability to choose based on consideration of values. Biology leads to society, with social animals adapting to their own social demands as well as the demands of nature. Reflex is involuntary movement. It is derived from two sources. Habit and instinct. Instincts are reflexes which come from biological ancestors. Modern humans mostly experience reflexes overrides of social limits to behavior to pursue biological legacy. Habits are movements imprinted by family, society and one's own internalized training. The aim of psychology and some methods of yoga is to become aware of the boundaries between the two. The crux of many fierce debates and often the breakdown of civility occurs in absence of consensus of what is a natural instinct which cannot be controlled, and what is an ingrained habit based on a prejudicial background. A human being is conscious and unconscious, yet she breathes in both conditions. The subconscious therefore is always aware and never sleeps. The conscious perspective can only organize the senses based on the objective physical world. Clear and obvious contrasts within natural cycle are the common sense layers of comparison. Upon these observable and simple terms can we look at the human body. The inhale and exhale are the most important, the most primal boundary between conscious and unconscious motor control.
