The philosophical goal of yoga, according to the Sutras of Patanjali, Sutra 2, Book 1 is, “Yogas Citta Vrtti Nirodhah”.
Yogas = Yoga,
Chitta = of the mind-stuff;
Viitti = Modifications;
Nirodhah = Restraint.
Translated this means “The restraint of the modifications of the mind-stuff is Yoga” (taken from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Sri Swami Satchidananda).
In theory, all the other aspects of yoga, such as the physical postures, breathing techniques and meditation practices, are designed to lead you towards this destination.
With all the stress in the world today, making it increasingly difficult to remain calm, understanding how we could each achieve this clarity, would make the world a happier, healthier, calmer, and more productive place.
The world would also be kinder and more compassionate. Moving into this space leads to a passion towards giving rather than receiving, allowing us to be more at peace with whatever is experienced in this lifetime.
Does this sound too good to be true? Well it isn’t.
One of the struggles modern society has with this goal, is giving it time to flourish. Yoga is a practice that takes time to master. It is like anything, if you want to do well at it, you have to invest the time to do so.
I am really lucky because I have managed to work towards a way of life that is filled with a passion for and a deep interest in, all that I practice myself every day.
How I want to help move this forward
In order to help society along the way, I have decided to dedicate one hour a month complementary tuition for the study of meditation, breath work (pranayama), gentle asana and deep relaxation. I will also be touching on aspects of Yoga Philosophy, such as that listed above to encourage you on your journey.
In return, all I ask is that you dedicate a few minutes each day to taking the teaching and putting it into practice. There is a saying that if something is free, it is not valued. You can add value to this by dedicating time and attention.
I will help you to manage the chatter of the mind and to help you to become aware of when you are self-sabotaging your own efforts.
If you would like to join us, the complementary one hour session will take place once a month on a Wednesday evening in Kingsthorpe, for 3 months, initially.
Booking is essential as this class is designed to encourage a continued and dedicated practice.
Bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
This 5th session will be on:
Moving Forwards Together – Complementary Meditation and Philosophy Evening
Wednesday 11th July
Church of the Holy Trinity
