Literally, Alif is the first letter of the alphabet in many eastern languages including Arabic, Urdu and Farsi. Metaphorically, it is considered “the letter par excellence” It’s shape of a staff signifies the highest to the lowest, beginning to end. It is further used to represent the divine or source of our existence. The letter Alif is not only used in a linguistic sense but a spiritual, cosmic one. Alif, spoken is a continuous flow of air (breath) which creates an energy that resonates in the entire body. The utterance of Alif has been used as a chant or mantra by poets and philosophers of the silk road such as Rumi to invoke spiritual awakening and acceptance of ones beginning and end. I have coined the use of the Alif sound and symbol in my unique Alif Yoga practice to help practitioners use their human ability to communicate and connect with letters and sounds to reach physical and spiritual enlightenment.
Progressive schools all around California are incorporating yoga into their school’s enrichment programs. Yoga’s balanced emotional and physical fitness benefits offer students those tools in fun and mindful yoga classes.
