With so much uncertainty abut the future, the anxious mind runs away with itself in concern about what will be. Leaving the secure mooring in the here-and-now it seeks to close the gap between now and later. Since it can never do this, it becomes increasingly more worried. Yoga breaks through this self perpetuating cycle by providing guidelines and a structure through which you can feel grounded and secure. Today’s session will begin with a dharma talk on how yoga, mindfulness, and paying attention to what is going on in the moment affords anyone who does this consistently an experience of what it is to be fully alive and at peace with life in the present.

Abhyasa is defined as long, uninterrupted practice, with devotion, over time. Refinement of the coarser aspects of personal practice follows initial attempts in yogic sadhana. Therefore, yoga leads from outer to inner, gross to subtle, external to internal awareness. Finer details, more precise adjustments, and holding poses for longer durations naturally proceed from better sequences and perseverance. Today’s class will focus on how to link the details in a given pose, how to link details within a specific category of poses (such as twists), and how to link poses within a class format. Since a hit and miss practice does not allow health benefits to accumulate, this workshop’s intention is to ignite the fire of aspiration that will make you want to the mat over and over again as a committed life-long practitioner.
