Like the mythical phoenix that rose from the flames, you too can reinvent your health and rejuvenate your body through yoga, meditation, and mindful action.
The Phoenix is a mythical bird that has eternal life. It flies far ahead to the front, always scanning the landscape and distant space. It represents our capacity for vision, for collecting sensory information about our environment and the events unfolding within it.
The Phoenix, with its great beauty, creates intense excitement and deathless inspiration.
The Phoenix represents power sent from the heavens in the form of peace and virtuosity. It has an intimate link with the sun, and the renewal and rebirth of life.
The Greek named it the Phoenix but it is associated with the Egyptian Bennu, the Native American Thunderbird, the Russian Firebird, the Chinese Fèng Huáng, and the Japanese Hō-ō.
The Phoenix is described as being larger than an eagle. It lives on dew, killing nothing and crushing nothing that it touches.
The earliest reference to the Phoenix was made by Hesiod in the 8th century B.C., but the most detailed account is by Herodotus of Halicarnassus, the famous Greek historian in 5th century B.C.
Through the power of the Phoenix our yoga practice is inspired to a higher level. We intensely search within for a clearer view and devote our practice to the greater good of the world.
