Action in the Present — The Essence of Sadhana, Part 2 of the Tantra of the Yoga Sutras: The Yoga of Living with Awareness and Grace
A Four-Part Training with Yogiraj Wendy Newton and Kavi Yogiraj Alan Finger
Part 2: Action in the Present — The Essence of Sadhana
Join Wendy and Alan for the second module of a four-part training that will take you on a multi-faceted journey to (re)discover the essence of yoga as ancient wisdom and personal transformation.
During the first hour, Alan will initiate the group with a bonding meditation and a short talk on the meaning of sadhana. Wendy will then lead us on a multi-faceted journey based on the insight and growth that came out of the writing process of Tantra of the Yoga Sutras.
Wendy inspires deep learning through relational exercises, storytelling and lecture, as well as experiential practice to anchor our learning. Join us and unpack your own unique understanding of these impactful concepts!
This is the meat and potatoes of yoga! We will deepen understanding of:
—the dimensionality of the eight limb path
—the yamas and niyamas as practice not ethics
—how tapas, or focus, combines with self reflection and surrender to support practice
— the kleshas as inherent in the process we call life
Participants can expect to go home with new insights into the yogic process and a well-spring of new ideas and practices to weave back into sadhana and teaching.
