Inspiring video of Stockholm Astanga yogi Laruga Glaser. Her strength, control and grace are a thing of beauty. Laruga has been a practitioner of yoga for over 18 years and is deeply passionate and dedicated to the practice of Ashtanga. She is inspired by her practice each day she comes to her mat.
"The practice of asanas and pranayama is learning to control the body and the senses so the Inner light may come forth. That light is the same for the whole world and it is possible for man to experience this light, his own Self through correct Yoga practice. This is the natural outcome of a good practice and one will gradually learn to control the mind because one eventually will come to experience the very support of it. But the mind is indeed very difficult to control, but everything is made possible with right practice. We must therefore first and foremost practice, practice, practice for any real understanding of Yoga to take place. Then eventually we will be able to break the fixed patterns of the mind and taste the greater underlying support of it all.” - Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
Laruga teaches Mysore classes at Yogayama in Stockholm, Sweden. She teaches as an act of deep sharing and love for what yoga develops in each individual - facilitating space to open, challenge and inspire those to step into the center of their own being and experience their inherent potential. Thank you for the inspiration Laruga. xx
