Wow how time flies when you’re having fun!!! It has been great to welcome all the new yogis to the studio, sharing their passion and commitment to the practice.
Everything…. However let’s be a little more detailed.
We have commenced weekly Sanskrit learnings on Yamas, Nyamas and Asanas (the first three limbs of Pantanjali’s 8 Limbs of Yoga). This week’s Yama is Aparigraha- nonhoarding/detachment of material possessions. Nobody should be defined by what or how much they own. Our character can be measured through the contribution to a greater, safer and inclusive society. Aparigraha can help individuals release negative thoughts and find an inner contentment, shifting further from external or material pleasures.
Also we have begun working on a Drishti (focus) wall, something to gaze at or contemplate when a little extra support is required. You can add you own words when you arrive or depart the studio, just request the letters. Each week it grows with love and connection to yoga.
