Spiritualize your life: making yoga a life practice
Sunday 23rd Aug 2020
What if everyday life could become part of a “life practice” to reveal your essential Truth?
Asana is great. But in this thought-provoking and rewarding workshop we’ll rediscover the riches beyond the physical process of yoga and learn to practice Yoga to see our essential Truth:
“The purpose of a formal practice is to establish and sustain the awareness of inner tranquillity that is always available to us.”
If this “inner tranquility” is not always available to you (it’s not to me either!) we can use our life practice to change the way our mind works to find it. In this method, there is no distinction between our formal practice and everyday life and we can use every conscious moment to attain this True Nature and reduce any sense of separation.
This workshop uses simple inquiries -and a gentle asana practice too- to explore ways to “Spiritualize” your life beyond the mat to turn your Yoga into a Life Practice with rich and immediate rewards.
The way you do this will be unique to you, so we’ll explore how to proceed on an individual basis leaving you with a plan and an approach tailored uniquely to you.
In this session you can expect:
Freedom from judgement
Please bring a note book, your own yoga mat, cushion/bolster to sit on.
Capacity of only 20 to comply with COVID safety restrictions and spacing
Cancellation up to 48 hours prior to event date is possible subject to a $5 cancellation fee. Less than 48 hours’ notice of cancellation is only possible if we can fill your place from a wait-list.
