Right Effort and Equanimity in the New Year Yoga with Lisa Walford and Todd Semo
Yoga practice engages every part of us, physical, sensory, emotional,
reflective and spiritual. It asks a lot of us, the persistence and patience
to learn, refine, let go, and start again. Right effort (abhyasa) is based on
cultivating sensitivity, awareness, analysis, correct perception and
evaluation. It is a stream that is forever flowing. Equanimity (vairagya)
evolves when any situation is handled skillfully. Within the fabric of
practice, it is easier to let go of frustration, anger, judgement and fear.
Determination tempered with patience is the way. In this workshop we will
explore how to read the multi-faceted messages from your body and mind in
asana that guide you to right effort and equanimity in practice.
"When wise action comes, you no longer feel the effort as effort, you feel
the effort as joy". -Sri B.K.S. Iyengar, Tree of Yoga
