Finding The Sun in The Heart (Aditya Hrdayam) An Iyengar Yoga Workshop with Kofi Busia

June 4, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
THE SUN IN THE HEART (Aditya Hrdayam)
From The Ramayana
“Aditya hrdayam punyam sarva-satru-vinasanam”

“The Sun in the heart…It is propitious, it is the vanquisher of all impediments.”

Kofi has created an Iyengar based asana sequence that will open us to find the wisdom and courage we want by seeking the Sun within. Conducting that search is our own true nature.  This Great Song, called Aditya Hrdayam, “The Sun in the Heart”, will be the core idea for practice.

When we lose sight of truth, standing poses can help ground us; inversions can help us gain a new perspective; forward bends can help deliver patience to us and help us compose ourselves; backbends can strengthen our resolve to do the right thing and enliven us; and twists can help the wisdom and warmth that is within to quietly perco- late through us and sustain us at all times, so we benefit from that Light.
