Self Discovery Through Practice & Study Annual Weekend with Linda Di Carlo
Iyengar Yoga is a multifaceted disciplinary art. This concept is easy to
accept if you read and study the work of the Iyengar family. When B.K.S.
Iyengar, a brilliant but humble man, “divided the body into a thousand
pieces so that the mind could be whole,” he gave us numerous points and
concepts to focus on as we practice. Guruji’s work is legendary.
One’s practice can be thought of as a tapestry or mosaic woven together to
form a masterpiece. For many of us practice is often the foundation of our
day. But do you study? Geetaji left us a pearl of wisdom when she said, “It
is your practice that brings the secrets to you. No teacher can give you the
secrets.” This was truly a gift to us all, especially if you enjoy the
process of study.
Our practice is our laboratory for Self discovery and it is in our daily
practice that we align ourselves in asana to receive the enlightenment that
lives there. The richness we find in our studies can be applied to our
practice. We can look at asana through the window of the Kosas, the Vayues, the Yamas and Niyamas, Kriya Yoga, Chakras, or Consciousness to name a few.
The beauty of having this understanding is that it gives us focus. Knowledge
declares our intention. During this weekend we will explore some of these
concepts or approaches to practice and study.
