There are no guru’s, queen bees or otherwise superior beings at Bee You Yoga and Wellness. We are a gathering of people looking to share and learn from one another no matter where you are in life’s journey.
Hi I’m Shelly, I’m a certified yoga teacher, yoga therapist, Licensed Massage & Bodyworker, Y12SR leader… and the list continues for this eternal student! I am not a guru or the boss. Yoga does not have hierarchy it is about people coming together to learn from each other on their journey. Everything we do at Bee You Yoga and Wellness is a suggestion for you to explore.
Yoga philosophy is ancient, over 5000 years old. It has taken many translations & can be intimidating to start. It is important to remember that though the philosophy is ancient most of the poses were developed in the last 100 years. Yoga is not about the poses. Yoga literally means union. Union of body & mind, body & breath, to connect with your true self, with your higher power, or simply Union of all of our parts of ourselves including the parts of us that may still generate emotions of shame. The purpose of practicing yoga can be different for each individual & can change from day to day. It is important to remember the poses are simply one of the tools we use to explore and learn. We move and breath to focus on reconnecting with our physical body. This is just another tool we use to bring us into the present moment. Much of human suffering can be linked to a disconnection to present moment.
It is also important to remember that Y12SR or any of the therapies Bee You Yoga and Wellness offers are just tools, they are not a replacement for traditional therapies, medical advice or 12 step programs, however it is most effective when used together with other tools you are finding useful in your journey.
