Yoga practice initially wakes us up to the very idea that we see the world a certain way. Our habitual patterns, when recognised, can be held in ways that support their understanding and impact in our lives. Our Yoga practice can then support new patterns of awareness. Ones that are beneficial to ourselves, the people close to us and eventually the world. We have to truly understand the possibility that yoga has in waking us up to becoming a real impact in the world beyond our skin.

WORKSHOP: RE-IMAGINING ASHTANGA YOGA - EMPOWERMENT THROUGH A SHARED RELATIONSHIP

This session will look at the relationships that evolve through the practice method of Ashtanga yoga. It will explore the deep integration that yoga practice can have on our lives, both when practiced on our own and when we work with a teacher. We will see that the practice and all relationships within a yoga environment are leading to empowerment, the ability for a student and a teacher to be empowered by the very act of mutual consent and supporting each other through a shared vision. We wake up together.
