The blacksmith: the worker and the alchemist. Using the elements of fire and air, earthen metals were shaped into purposeful form. Like the blacksmith, through our practice we combine prana (breath) with tapas (discipline/heat) to shape ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually - revealing our purpose and cause in the world.
Yoga is a practice of devotion, by coming back again and again we throw ourselves into the fires of transformation, truing ourselves of karmic knots, illusion and coded beliefs. Through movement, breathe, and conviction we stoke the inner forge - we become the blacksmiths of our souls. We change, we shape, we purify what resides within. Stoke your inner fires - forge your Self.
