THIS 4-WEEK SERIES OF CLASSES IS OFFERED ONLINE VIA ZOOM.
Life is always changing, yet these changes seem especially stressful in today’s world with COVID, politics, climate change and personal challenges.
“How do we maintain a position of steadiness? When we look outward at situations in the world, we often feel that we have no control, no ability to effect change. But we can go back to changing our world within – where we do have the ability to change. We can change how we use our intellect and emotions so that we are not swept up by outside forces. When we harness the emotions and intellect, we can gather facts and mobilize ourselves to actions rather than getting stuck in reactions.”
~ Swami Radhananda, Living the Practice: Collected Writings on the Transformative Potential of Yoga
In the midst of these stressful times, we continue to age and experience changes in our bodies and minds. How do we stay grounded and clear about our own path amid these changes? “How do we maintain a position of steadiness?” As Swami Radhananda notes above, we go within to find the answers.
We can explore our inner self – our thoughts, choices, limitations we put on ourselves. We can change our inner landscape to meet today’s challenges as we age. In these Saturday classes, we will be harnessing the emotions and intellect and gathering facts to move forward in this time of life. We will be using a variety of yogic practices: visualization, reflection, symbolism, breath and relaxation.
