Welcome to

Despite common rumors, yoga is what you make it.  This practice will take you where you need to go.  It allows you to discover what lies deep beneath the surface of YOU.

It allows your inner Divine light to shine.  Self awareness, connection, compassion and peace are all that can become a part of you through your yoga practice.

According to Krishnamacharya, there are several definitions of the term Yoga. To unite; to come together; to attain what was previously unattainable; to be one with the divine. Yoga is the ability to direct the mind without distraction or interruption.   -Yoga Sutras

“The actual practice of yoga takes each person in a different direction. The practice of yoga only requires us to act and to be attentive to our actions”.   -The Heart of Yoga

Hi, I'm Sheri and this is Yogimamas.

I am an RN with two little girls.  I came into yoga in 2009 at a local gym in Southlake.  What began as a fitness class, quickly turned into so much more.  At that time, I found Divine Center of Yoga in Southlake.   After two years of practicing at Divine,  I went through teacher training.  Through my studies, I learned that the world of yoga has so much more to offer than exercise!   This practice has truly changed my life, and  I teach it to offer that same opportunity to others.  I teach yoga to continue my education in this ancient art of healing, and bring that knowledge back to my fellow yoginis of the Southlake area.   I teach to let people know there is not a stereotypical body type, age, race or position in life, to have a beautiful practice.  Mostly, I want women (in particular) to feel what I feel from this ancient art.  My hope and prayer is to bring more stillness, clarity, connection, awareness, and peace to your day through guiding you in your practice of Yoga here in Southlake, TX.

Yogimamas classes offer a wide variety of different types of yoga to the yoginis of Southlake, Trophy Club, Roanoke, Grapevine, Keller, Colleyville, and other surrounding areas.

From VINYASA (high movement), to YIN (seated poses that are held), to RESTORATIVE (supported poses to restore the body), to POWER (arm balances and inversions), each yogini has an opportunity to explore their body through these different poses.

Within each class, I offer modifications as well as opportunities to take it to the next level.   I count on the feel of the room, what I am impressed to teach, the energy of the yogis and the skill level present.

With yogimamas, each student is offered a diverse practice.

As always, your practice is what you make it.

History of Yoga

 

The 8 Limbs of Yoga

 

taken from the Yoga Sutra’s by Pantanjali

There are several different times that have been thrown around regarding the inception of a hatha yoga practice.  Some texts believe yoga began roughly 5,000 years ago.  However, most researchers agree yoga became a routine practice around 200-600BC.  During this time, the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras were written.  Both of these sacred texts have been and continue to be instrumental in both the history and current practice of yoga.

Within the past 100 years or so, yoga began to its path into the Americas   There have been several gurus that have contributed the evolution of this practice in the states.  Krishnamacharya and his student Pattabhi Jois were instrumental in this.  BKS Iyengar was also a large influence in the asana practice here in the states.  Through the studies of these teachers and the Yoga Sutras, the 8 limbs of Yoga came to fruition.

Chakras are known as energy vortexes.  There are seven chakras throughout the subtle body.  Through these chakras, our body, mind and soul can communicate and open.  Thereby, creating space within the subtle body allowing for clarity and peace.  If we have a chakra (or two) blocked, it makes it difficult for prana (life force) to move through the body.  Each chakra is connected with an area in the body, signs of imbalance, color, element and sound.  Through an asana practice, the body is able to encourage freedom in these areas in the subtle body.
