Have Restful Awareness While Being Active

Join us this week in asana classes at LCY to establish a pattern of moving while having restful awareness via Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra 2.11 and a vinyasa yoga sequence with intelligent alignment.  In this practice you will retrain your nervous system to go from just having awareness, which isn’t always restful, into restful awareness in action! In your practice you can instill this state to extend into your life and constantly be in the unclutched mode while walking, talking, sitting, working, cooking- doing everything in unclutched restful awareness!

Meditation Master Roy Davis translates this sutra as, “Troublesome influences are effortlessly resisted and their forces weakened and dissolved by super conscious influences that prevail when, and after, meditative states of samadhi are experienced. Gradual or sudden immergence of our innate knowledge of what is true replaces erroneous ideas and illusions.”

Yoga Master B.K.S. Iyengar says of Yoga Sutra 2.11, “Here Patanjali offers meditation as another method to quiet the mind. By this, the mind’s impulses are reduced to their subtlest point and it is compelled to rest silently in its source, the soul.”

You can take that alert restful awareness to the next level of transcendence where agitation and fluxuations of the mind subside into the field of Supreme Consciousnes at Friday Night Meditation from 7:15pm-8:45pm.
