Beginners Donation Based Workshop
Discover the varying qualities of the pose, not only in the body, but also the mind. Become discerning in your practice – when to move and when to be still? What does each state (in the body) teach us (in the mind)? Begin to learn to read the feedback the muscle fibers and skin give you in your intelligent action of āsana.
This workshop is for beginners, improvers and those who want to deepen areas of their practice, working towards what BKS Iyengar called effortless effort. When the body is aligned the way is paved for the mind to be clearer, yoga is such a path.
“This process of relaxing the brain is achieved through āsana. We generally think of the mind as in our head. In asana our consciousness spreads throughout the body, eventually diffusing in every cell, creating a complete awareness. In this way stressful thought is drained away and out mind focuses on the body, intelligence, & awareness as a whole.” – B.K.S. Iyengar “Light on Life”
