Find time for you, at Soul Sanctuary. Soul Sanctuary is somewhere where you can just be you, and our online classes allow you to create an environment wherever you are, where you can take the pressure off, explore both your mind and body, and empower yourself to listen to what you truly need. Through experiencing the poses, we can start to see where we doubt ourselves, where we hold ourselves back, or maybe where we push too hard. And then, we can ask ourselves, where else do we do this off the mat? And that's where the real yoga begins. When we have the time, space and guidance to shine a light on our current way of being, we can gain clarity on which aspects of ourselves serve us, and which drain us. After regular practice, the welcomed bi-product is a strong, aligned, healthy body, which is an added bonus, to your healthy, resilient, authentic and energised mind! Find your Soul Sanctuary today.
20. YOGA PRACTICE - Kleshas
As a little bonus, Laura adds in something beyond the eight limbs, another framework we can use to help us find balance. Kleshas are ‘poisons’ which can slow down or stop us on our ‘path’. By understanding common poisons of the mind, we are able to identify how to avoid them. For example, one Klesha is ‘Asmita’ which could be translated as ‘egoism’, and explains how the more ‘I’ am the most important thing in the world, the more focus put upon ‘me’ the more pressure ‘I’ feel. This helps us to see where a sense of pressure may be coming from, and how we could change that. We can only change what we can see, these teachings are simply a way to shed light on engrained ways of being otherwise known as ‘samskaras’ - once we can see them, we have the opportunity to grow and make change, if we wish to.
