Saturday Morning Workshops...
Commitment and Energy in our Yoga Practice Workshop- a morning on the yogic principle of Tapas Saturday 9th September10am-1pm, Sedgwick Park House
“Living life with zeal and sincerity, the purifying flame is ignited (Tapas) revealing the inner light.’ -Yoga Sutra II.43
In Sanskrit, the world Tapas is defined as commitment or internal fire, in other words the type of energy that gets us on the yoga mat after a long day, a stressful encounter or just a hundred and one tasks to do. It’s the kind of energy that won’t leave us alone until we’re where we’re supposed to be, doing what we’re supposed to be doing. In our asana practice (the postures) it’s the desire to get the right alignment, find that extra bit of openness in the body and energy in our practice. In meditation, it is the commitment to burn away the dross of the mind and allow the inner light to shine through our thoughts. Whether you have an abundance of this energy in your life or you’re looking to cultivate more of it this workshop will speak to the need for balance and offers ways to apply this energy on and off the mat.
In the physical part of this workshop we’ll dig in to an alignment based class. I’ll go around the room and gently adjust and suggest ways to open and progress individually. As a group, we’ll explore the yoga sutra above and meditate on burning away the useless thinking of the mind to find the bright inner light within.
This session is suitable for anyone with some previous experience of yoga. If you would like to sign up each workshop is £35, payable in advance to secure your space. There will be tea, coffee and (sugar, wheat and dairy free) cake for refreshment. I will send a confirmation email and directions to Sedgwick Park closer to the time the time.
