Early texts say that mastery in yoga comes from sincere, consistent practice done over a long period of time (Yoga Sutra 1.14). And although we know personal practice is beneficial, making space in our busy lives can be difficult. Learning to prioritize practice is an important, distinct process of its own, one that can be supported by an experienced teacher.
Establishing or deepening your personal practice requires an honest inventory of where you are and what is possible in your life right now.
Starting there, we will delve into some of the important motivating principles that can spur your commitment. Lakshmi will share ideas that have worked (and a few that haven’t) after 18 years as a practitioner and teacher, as well as adjustments for injury, illness or the intrusion of major life events. With new ideas and a refreshed perspective, you will come away feeling empowered and inspired to re-commit to your practice.
The workshop will include lecture and guided practice, with time for questions and discussion.
All are welcome to this workshop. The discussion will be especially helpful to students of Shadow Yoga, which eventually requires a commitment to regular practice. The principles introduced will be helpful to all students.
