Starting from the beginning is a valuable technique to readjust our practice and how it makes us feel. The month of March will hold an opportunity to re-examine ,redefine and reshaper ourselves with the 1st series of Ashtanga Yoga. In order for our practice to generate peace and freedom we need to approach the asana practice with a contemplative understanding of the subtle art of pranayama, mudra, and bandha. Without this deeper penetration into the practice, asana can lead to injury and a mechanical, even competitive, approach. Join me with “beginners mind” to return Yoga Chikitsa as the name intends, to unveil the light and joy of our bodies and minds when our approach is free from demand, expectation and disappointment.
