Keeping it simple...

This week I wish to keep it simple and share with you one picture, one quote and one song.

Ascetic practicing various techniques of yoga and tapas (~1825)

 

"Hatha Yoga is a technical system whose purpose is to achieve 'freedom', 'release' or 'salvation' for its practitioners... 'Self Realisation'. Self Realisation is an abbreviated way of saying 'the realisation of one's true identity as the Self, the Self (with a capital initial) being the paramatman (the highest or supreme Self), who, according to Yoga Philosophy is identical to Brahman (the Absolute)." - Mikel Burley, Hatha-Yoga.

See you in class this week to practice Hatha Yoga, as we begin to delve deep this year in to the complete and integral system of spiritual development for body, mind and soul to discover in-depth knowledge about the subtle body and its energy, using not only asana (postures), but also pranayama (breath control), mantra (mind freeing sound) and meditation. 

Can you begin to practice Yoga in its truest form and be open to the transformative qualities that arise? Come back home, create space and trust.

I look forward to exploring this alongside you.

Namaste x
