auckland YOGA DAY
Free the Breath - Expand Awareness
Yogic tools to live by.
These days bring a taste of authentic, traditional yoga to our modern landscape seeking to merge the sacred with everyday experiences we can relate to. Taking a holistic approach the day will drill down on the role of conscious breathing & relaxation, asana, mantra chanting & meditation & how these support a sustainable life-long relationship with health, self development & yoga as a lifestyle. Drawing on the transmitted wisdom of a yogic lineage this day will be infused with practices that work intentionally with breath & the respiratory system to free up tension that leads to restrictive patterns. To get in touch with energy and learn how to work with it via breathing techniques & different types of pranayama.
Links will be made with yogic physiology & philosophy to bring context to experience, to connect the dots and to inspire you towards further exploration and transformation. Classical Hatha is a timeless science unaffected by fads or trends, it is a precise and systematic way to purify, balance and strengthen the 5 koshas (layers of our existence from gross to subtle).
Coming in touch with this sacred alchemy through cultivating a meditative awareness in action induces a cascade of positive psychological & social effects. The physical body becomes the conduit for refined awareness in action and application through the senses grounds it into daily life.
