Asana practice: Through the lens of sacred texts
July 25th – 27th, 2014 (Friday thru Sunday)
Triyoga Soho, London, England (map)
Each of the classes can be taken individually, as well:
Fri. July 25th, 7:45pm – 10:15pm
Prana and Prajna: Experience the vital energy in the body, prana, on an elemental level through breath awareness woven into the postures; and build an internal sensory vocabulary of energy to discern “Prajna” what is best for you. Restorative practice
Sat. July 26th, 10am – 12:30pm
Pramana – Correct perception in standing poses: The technical foundation required to build stability, space, and mobility in these poses and to fine tune them to your unique body sharpens perception. Please have one year, or more, of practice
Sat. July 26th, 2pm – 4:30pm
Svadhyaha – Study of the self: While Inversions turn our world upside down, they also reinforce internal equilibrium. Learning to balance receptivity with strength is Arjuna’s challenge in the Gita. For those with a basic headstand practice
Sun. July 27th, 10am – 12.30pm
Kriya and Karma: Arm balances and backward extensions demand fearlessness and courage. Arjuna reflected deeply before engaging, to discern the nature of action itself. You cannot throw yourself into these poses, they require a progressive preparation and understanding to practice effectively.
For intermediate students (beginners are welcome and will be given alternative postures)
Sun. July 27th, 2pm – 4:30pm
Chitta Prasadanam: Twists and forward extensions invite us into a delicious and still spaciousness. The Yoga Sutras give equal attention to what to do and how to undo. Free your practice from striving and grasping to integrate the breath, body and senses into a unified experience. One year, or more, of practice.
