On And Off the Mat
Yoga is often associated with actions that occur on a rectangular mat. From one perspective this is valid. There are important techniques to learn that open the possibility of a new way of living, experiencing ourselves and the world around us.
Vedanta 'practice' is typically associated with non-doing or meetings to explore questions about consciousness. This may be followed by meditation - as part of the gathering or afterwards.
Either way the 'real' practice begins in relationships with people and in our daily activities - 'Life is the Teacher' is a good way to express this reality.
Equipping people with the tools and capability to bring a conscious approach to all aspects of living is central to my approach. This is why I draw on the wisdom contained in: Yoga, Ayurveda, The Fourth Way, Adviata Vedanta and the Direct Path.
This approach promotes:
- Self practice
- Helping people to be their own teacher
- Community of equals
- Personal verification of all ideas
- Friendship rather than leadership
- Enjoyment and simplicity
What you can expect
- Respect, kindness, dignity
- Compassion, tolerance, patience
- Empathy and support
What you can bring
- Your experience
- Willingness to explore new ideas
