About The Yoke Collection
About the Yoke Collection
The word ‘yoga’ means to connect, unite or ‘yoke’.
We as humans are connected to the universal energy that each of us manifests—including plants, other living beings and objects.
The practices of yoga are so infinitely rich with wisdom on our natural ability to find peace & to heal ourselves in our bodies, minds & souls. It has become part of my dharma (calling) to share the knowledge I have gained through teaching & also through my craft.
In my studies I discovered Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra which sequences the path to a purposeful & meaningful life into 8 limbs of yoga.
The Yoke Collection features an assortment of adornments that are created to embody the essences of each limb & the journey to liberation. Each piece is crafted delicately by hand with the intent to inspire the wearer to invite meaning & connection to their lives.
The 8 Limbs:
Yamas - Restraints, moral disciplines or moral vows
Niyamas - Positive duties or observances
Asana - Posture, physical practices
Pranayama - Breathwork
Pratyahara - Sense withdrawal
Dharana - Focus, concentration
Dhyana - Meditative absorption, letting go
Samdhi - Bliss or Enlightenment
