“Sanka cakra asi dharinam”
During the retreat we will deepen our understanding of these allies that support us in Dharinam (concentrated yogic practice):
Sanka the divine conch – we will raise awareness of our ujjayi breath through pranayama, meditation and chanting;
Cakra the wheel – cultivating stillness in our minds and bodies while seated or while in asana; let’s map back to the origins of the practice and rediscover surprising places of joy and reflection buying time for ourselves and our highest self to come out while in practice;
Asi – the sword – use discriminative awareness to cut through any unwanted thought patterns and habits in order for transformation to take shape.
