As many of you already know, we have gotten away from the traditional yoga classes and have been teaching what may seem as a new style. We call it Spartan Yoga.
In fact, Spartan Yoga is modern terminology conveying an extremely old and very effective style of training.
Spartan Yoga is the form of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual training that originated in Ancient Sparta. It creates the tenacity, skill, strength and compassion of the body, emotions, mind and soul required for the individual to fulfill their purpose in life (whether they know what their purpose is or not.)
The Spartans believed that as human beings we all have one thing in common, the desire to live with purpose. That purpose can be being a parent, a teacher, a waiter, a gardener, a medical doctor, a police officer, a builder, anything that serves the betterment of humanity and the environment.
Spartan Yoga is not specialized, it is simple. It is not wasting energy and effort, it is all about the economy of action. It is using the most effective movements in the shortest amount of time. Whether training for every day life or to compete in the Olympic games, the ancient Greeks believed that the body should be exercised as a whole, not in isolated parts.
According to Spartan Yoga the power is within us. It is based on empirical evidence, on results, not on theory, or philosophies. It is up to us, the individual, whether we will succeed or fail. The power is given to the person, not their teacher or guru.
So, find your hero within.
“Don’t explain your philosophy. Embody it.” ― Epictetus
