This series of sessions is based on the yamas and niyamas outlined in the Yoga Sutras. The yamas and niyamas offer guidance for interacting with the world and for our relationship with ourselves. They include values such as truth, discipline, non-possessiveness, self-enquiry and so on. These values form the basis of our personal growth and our relationships with the outside world, including families, friends and the environment.
Sessions will include self-reflection and discussion to explore what these guidelines mean for us personally, how we are living our lives currently and where we want to go. These classes are open to all.
On Our Blog: Movement Habits for a Healthier You (III)
Move more and move better throughout the day
One of the things I love about the term ‘movement’ is how broad it is. Movement, unlike exercise, is everything you do with your body–shifting your weight, scratching an itch, going to the bathroom, picking up your bag, putting down your bag, reaching for your coffee… I think you get the point. When you think about moving, all of what you do is included. This means that not only is it possible to move throughout the day, you’re probably already doing it (to some extent). The idea, in this post, is to get you to (1) evaluate the ways you’re already moving, and (2) add on new and different ways that use more of your body, or that use different parts of your body…
This is a set of individual sessions with Charu, designed to help us understand our propensities and the type of work that is aligned to them. Most of us divide our lives into sections like work, family, interests etc., and look for each of these to provide us with different types of satisfaction. We then hope that putting them all together will give us the happiness that we are looking for.
The focus in these sessions will be to take us away from this thinking and explore different ways ‘to be that one self which one truly is’ (Soren Kierkegaard), thus making our life a seamless whole with the potential to provide lasting happiness and contentment in everything we do.
