Continuing on and delver deeper into the three transformative aspects of the Yoga practice: tapaḥ-svādhyāy-eśvarapraṇidhānāni, we will slow down and take a whole day to unravel each stage of the process:
Tapa which means to heat, to fire up, to purify and to alchemize. Traditionally it refers to the heated effort of the practice which leads to radiance of body and clarity of mind. A more contemporary interpretation may regard tapas as our drive, determination, endeavour and inner strength of intention.
Svādhyāya is understood as study of the self and inner reflection of one’s patterns and nature of being. This includes inner listening and sensing, thoughtful contemplation and openness to learning in all situations.
īśvarapraṇidhāna refers to surrendering (praṇidhāna) to a higher source (īśvara). It is a return to our heartfulness, goodness and inner light that we can use as our compass and guide. It has been likened to the Buddhist concept of bodhicitta, “enlightenment-mind”, that opens to awakening and compassion.
Further workshops at Flow Yoga, Tunbridge Wells in 2019 are:
Yogaria Aerial Yoga Workshops
Dates to be confirmed
Classes and workshops draw upon the authentic yogasana system and integrate it with the principals of aerial training using a rigged silken cocoon material, which stretches organically yet has tremendous strength, like another skin, to harness, support and lift us from the ground.
Every session begins with gentle mat based asana work to strengthen and safely prepare the body and mind for the challenges of aerial work. We then move on to develop the practice in to fluid sequences using the cocoon alternatively with floor work to both elevate and ground.
Fun and challenging as well as restorative and gentle, Yogaria Aerial Yoga invites you to develop your confidence, strength and agility whilst deepening your yoga practice mentally and physically both on and off the mat.
Important Notes on Aerial Yoga workshops: Aerial work is strong, so expect to be challenged, stretched and strengthened to the core!
Mat work and partner work are both integral parts of aerial practice, so please come prepared to work on the yoga mat as well as in the air, and to share the practice and work with others.
Please also bring along extra clothing: one long and one half-sleeved top (no vests) and a long or knee length bottom (not baggy) to layer yourself with, so as to avoid friction of the skin with the cocoon
