Life isn't what we think it is. We are not what we think we are. Our minds project all of the stories, beliefs and memories it has created onto the flow of life and we take them to be true. We filter reality through the lens of our mind, and when we do that we suffer. There is far more to life than the pursuit of happiness, and if we take the time and effort to really examine our lives we will see that nothing external has ever really satisfied this pursuit for more than a brief moment. If we really look at life and our experience of it, deep inside we know that there is something more to life, and more to what we are. Life is meant to be a journey to go within, to experience the unity that exists within each of us. Some of us take that journey out of necessity others do it by choice, but regardless of the path you are on, ultimately the end result is the same. Wherever you are in your journey right now, is exactly where you are meant to be. Some people will guide us along the journey, others will cause us to briefly go astray, but ultimately we all end up in the same place. I wish you all the best, and I hope that
Five years ago due to immense trauma and suffering, Kevala (Previously Christina) had an awakening experience that not only immediately ended her suffering, but also drastically changed her view of herself and life and these experiences have continued to evolve and deepen over the last few years. Immediately feeling drawn to yoga, she began studying traditional yoga philosophy and found descriptions of her experiences and the answers about life she had always been looking for. She understands the awakening and liberation paths, perspectives, and experiences described in the ancient texts and by the modern sages in a deep and authentic way. In 2022 she changed her name to Kevala, which means "alone" to express the unity experience that has awoken within her. She feels called to share these experiences with others, and has opened The Mind-Body Connection Yoga Studio as a means to share these profound and life changing teachings and experiences.
