Atma will lead a wisdom talk and guided class with a focus on how we approach Asana through Yama & Niyama, posture, & breath, exploring:

  • Asana as it is used within the 8 fold path
  • The meaning and beauty of ‘Sthira Sukham Asanam’ drawn from Patanjali’s Ancient Sutras and its impact and importance in our practice in the present-day context.
  •  How Hatha Yoga works to release tension and toxins to prepare us to arrive at a place of steady, comfortable posture.
  • Pranayama and how it can be approached to build and continue to deepen relationship with the breath and realize it as a truly powerful ally.
  • How simply harnessing the breath releases tension, shifts emotion and changes our state of mind.
  • Four key aspects of the breath that work to support us on all levels in both outer life and inner exploration.
