This workshop will deepen your understanding of two important yoga sutras as well as the spine; it’s design and function and will help you find more stability and comfort in your practice.
UNDERSTANDING OUR MIND THROUGH THE INDRIYAS
We will explore several ideas from the shastras (sacred texts) to help us understand what influences our actions, ideas, responses, triggers, our decisions. Helping us to understand how we interact with the world outside through inside. The concepts shared are mainly coming from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
We will end with a small dhāranā practice, sharing ways to concentrate or hold the mind still. Only from this space of silence, moving inwards can hear clearly.
