With the new year, a new era has begun. Over time, Elevated Retreats LLC morphed organically into Barbara Yoga and this past fall, I decided to continue sharing my love for the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method and Yogic lifestyle simply as "Barbara Yoga".
The new logo, a conch shell (Shankha), is a symbol of great religious and scientific significance. Earliest written documents of Shankha can be traced back to the Vedas and other holy texts such as the Bhagavad Gia and the Puranas.
Leaving aside the mythology part, the conch shell’s significance can also be corroborated by science. If you try holding a Shankha near your ear, the sound of the gently humming ocean can be heard. This is actually the natural vibration or cosmic energy of the Earth which gets magnified on entering the conch shell. According to science, the blowing of a conch shell enhances the positive psychological vibrations such as courage, determination, hope, optimism, willpower, etc. in the blower as well as those around him.
