Beyond Asana: enlighten your practise - yoga beyond the mat…
Any cursory understanding of yoga will point towards a whole world ‘beyond asana’. The road map of Patanjali gives 8 avenues or steps of study and practise. The Bhagavad Gita invites the student of yoga to explore the 4 ‘margas’ or paths of yoga. The Upanishads are filled with references to the diversity and multi-faceted nature of yoga.
Embraced fully our yoga will merge into all areas of our lives. Our relationships (with ourselves, others and our planet), and our life choices become an extension of the conscious breath and movement on our asana mats. The yoga comes off the mat and into all aspects of life. A life lived in yoga, beyond the asana.
This series of workshops will explore yoga beyond asana drawing on teachings from the Vedas, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Bhagavad Gita and other seminal yogic texts.
Looking through the lens of going beyond the asana, enrich your practise and your life.
Foundations of practise on and off the mat ~ Yamas and Niymas
The Yamas and Niyamas form the first two rungs of the eight runged astanga yoga of Patanjali. There are 5 Yamas and 5 Niymas and we will examine each and discuss how they relate to yoga practise on and off the mat and how they inform the 6 subsequent steps along the path of astanga yoga to the final rung of Samadhi or the goal of yoga.
