About the Event
During this workshop we will explore with Alex how most Asana practices currently reinforce binary thinking which has created obstacles in our practice that are similar patterns to those described in the Kleshas.
The Kleshas (Spiritual Ignorance, Ego, Attraction, Aversion and Clinging to Life) are the obstacles to Yoga. Right/Wrong, Flexible/not flexible, Full posture/Modified Posture are all binary thoughts that when applied in a universal way create issues as they don’t take into account the individual person or the unique circumstances of each individual moment. These sorts of rules are usually offered in an effort to keep student’s safe, but they often don’t work and lead to a problematic outcomes that steer us away from the kind of growth that yoga’s philosophy asks us to engage with.
If we reformat our intentions so that they are rooted in and aligned with yoga’s teachings we can actually use these binary rules combined with a process of wisely dismantling them within a practice as a way to engage with the rich teachings in a way that allows for a much deeper experience and a path towards true and meaningful growth beyond what is usually available in practices at the moment.
Teacher and Student will benefit from this class as we will outline some of the common binary rules that exist and how the process of dismantling them engages us with the true work of yoga.
The session will include short lectures as well as a physical practice.
Tickets £25 paid online. If you can't attend the live event, the recording will be made available to you for 7 days from the event date.
