"When wise action comes, you no longer feel the effort as effort, you feel the effort as joy."
- Sri B.K.S. Iyengar, Tree of Yoga
Yoga practice engages every part of us, physical, sensory, emotional, reflective and spiritual. It asks a lot of us, the persistence and patience to learn, refine, let go, and start again. Right effort (abhyasa) is based on cultivating sensitivity, awareness, analysis, correct perception and evaluation. It is a stream that is forever flowing. Equanimity (vairagya) evolves when any situation is handled skillfully. Within the fabric of practice, it is easier to let go of frustration, anger, judgement and fear. Determination tempered with patience is the way.
In this workshop we will explore how to read the many messages from the body and mind in asana that guide us to right effort and equanimity in practice.
