Letting Go: The Heart of Yoga Practice
Practice with Judith Hanson Lasater. We will use Yoga Asana, Restorative Yoga, Pranayama, and Meditation to explore what it means to let go on the mat and in our lives.
One of the most powerful teachings of the ancients is about letting go.
All religions and spiritual traditions tell us to let go of our suffering, of the tyranny of our thoughts, and of our constant judgments.
But what does it mean to let go? What does it feel like?
How is it different from giving in? How do we learn to let go of our attachments, our fears, of our constant holding on to the hope of making things be the way we want them to be all the time?
Can we learn to let go, not just of things we don’t want, but learn to let go into our true power, into our innate strength, and into our courage as well?
These are some of the questions we will explore.
We will use Active Asana and the Quiet Practices of Restorative Yoga, Pranayama, and Meditation to explore what it means to cultivate the wisdom of letting go on the mat and in our lives, minute by minute.
Who is the workshop for?
Open to all dedicated yoga practitioners.
