This week is the beginning of the 5 week dive into the Hindrances of the Mind or the Kleshas. In an ancient text, The Yoga Sutras, the sage Patanjali speaks about the things within each human mind that get in the way of knowing the true nature of the Self- the Highest Self- the part within each human that is a spark of Divinity itself. This week classes will focus on what the Kleshas are and the first one, which the 4 others fall under the umbrella of: Avidya or Ignorance. Ignorance in this sense basically means the belief that one identifies with the physical world as real and the Spiritual world as unreal. Yoga philosophy teaches us just the opposite through wisdom passed down for thousands of years: our true nature is ever expansive and unchanging. The physical world is ever changing and will create suffering and internal turmoil as long as we identify with it as real/unchanging. Coming into our humanness upon birth clouded our mind with ignorance, however through shining the light of conscious awareness the truth can be known. In order to do this one must look at the messy mind and learn how to find harmony in it. There is a way to create an internal sanctuary, but it takes hard work. All the practices done on the mat assist with this- intention setting, grounding, breathing, moving, meditating, resting, surrendering, chanting- all these things help with clearing the way to deeper understanding and integration step by step with patience, persistence, curiosity and love. I know the magic of yoga because I have practiced and studied it for almost 20 years. I love sharing it as a tool for self understanding. My teaching style is lighthearted, playful and trauma informed. If interested see details below on how to practice virtually with me live or anytime through On Demand video library.
