Often it is easier for us to achieve a goal than to sustain it. So this sutra describes the effort required, first to reach the blissful state of clarity that is Yoga and then how we can work to remain steady in that state, even when we are away from our mats in daily life.
"Practise is nurtured by sustained practise over a long period of time, with a steady rhythm and dedicated heart " 1:14
In this sutra Patanjali goes deeper into the definition of practise, describing the qualities of practise and what we have to do to ensure the practise gains a good foundation and that it has value.
" With constant remembrance of the Self , all yearning fades" 1. 15
" When consciousness unites it remains clear and unaffected by the external changes of nature, this is the ultimate detatchment" 1. 16
In this class we explore the benefits of detachment. When we are detached we are in a more neutral state of mind and we can remain unaffected by the external pulls of nature ( gunas) and this takes us closer to the Yogic state.
Kath Pinnick and Aileen Boyd will be teaching you between 27th July and 31st July whilst I am away, so we will be taking a short pause from the Yoga Sutras theme during these two weeks.
