Class Themes for May: The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Chapter One continued Sutras 1:3- 1:10


30th April - 4th May


"United in the heart, consciousness is steadied, then we abide in our true nature- Joy" 1:3

We all experience moments or periods of happiness in our lives when things go well or we're in  a good mood but we also know that this does not last, in this sutra Patanjali offers us one of the main benefits of Yoga- the ability to experience true joy,  known as Ananda or bliss.  Unlike perceived happiness, this feeling is non- transient and cannot be affected by the pull of the mind, senses or external circumstances.


7th- 11th May Bank Holiday Monday- 7th May: 7pm Class is on (No 10am class) 

 

"Our essential nature is usually overshadowed by the activity of the mind" 1:4 "There are five types of mental activity. They may or may not cause suffering" 1:5 "These five are: Understanding, misunderstanding, imagination sleep and memory" 1. 6  


In these Sutras we learn what happens when we are not in the state of Yoga, or connected to the heart; the activities of the mind can veil our experience of pure Joy, and true bliss, Ananda. 


14th- 19th May ( Flow class this week on Saturday 19th May at 8:30am)


"Knowledge embraces personal experience, inference and insights from the wise. " 1. 7 "Misunderstanding is the delusion that stems from a false impression of reality." 1. 8  


In these sutras we learn what happens when we engage in the first two of the five activities of the mind, correct understanding or knowledge and misunderstanding or misperception. 

21st- 26th May (Flow class Saturday 26th May at 8:30am)


"Imagination is thought based on an image and conjured up by words, and is without substance." 1. 9


In this class we will discover the extent to which we use imagination in our daily lives and  how it can either be useful or harmful, it can lead to creativity, or it can result in worry and unclear perception.



28th May- 1st June Bank Holiday Monday 28th May: 10am Class is on ( No 7pm class)


"Deep sleep allows us to withdraw from conscious awareness " 1:10 /p>

In this weeks class  (which will include a long Yoga Nidra - deep sleep relaxation) we will understand the differences and similarities  between state of deep sleep and the state of Yoga.
