One of the great benefits of ongoing yoga practice is the development of our ability to pause, and to rest in the posture of observation: an inner state of conscious awareness. This can mean being in a place of deep relaxation, yet alert and aware as we observe our inner reality and outer environment. Yogically speaking, this occurs primarily through the practices of pranayama (conscious breathing), dyana (meditation), and asanas, the postures of yoga. Also, in many of the great psychological practices of the present era, we engage this state by creating space to observe our thoughts, shadow areas, and the light of consciousness moving through us. This posture of observation can be a doorway to greater self-awareness and personal freedom in life. Please join us for this week of yoga practices as we calm and rest deeply in perception through our inner and outer eyes.
Please have a minimum of three months of yoga practice, and bring a yoga mat.Source: www.esalen.org
