yOGA THIS WEEK – JUNE 20, 2021 – NEW START TIME FOR TUES & FRI MORNINGS!

*PLEASE NOTE:  TUESDAY & FRIDAY MORNINGS ARE BEINGING AT 9AM FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS* 

Greetings dear yoga students,

“She began to realize that identifying her practice with things that could be lost [advanced postures or deep states of meditation],  would always leave her susceptible to fear anything that could be taken away through sickness, aging or life circumstances, was not a very wise thing to stand on.  It  was then that she realized the only security lay in using her yoga practice to tether her awareness to the part of herself that was and is eternal. ”  Donna Farhi

Avidya is the core klesha from which all the others arise.

Avidya – Spiritual Ignorance

Asmita – Ego – Persona -False Self

Raga – Attachment to Pleasure

Dvesa – Aversion to Pain

Adhinivhesa – Fear of Death/Loss 

These Kleshas or misperceptions are basically the core confusion of what is permanent with what is impermanent and the suffering we cause ourselves when we try to hold on to these impermanent things.  We all have fear of losing things we hold dear.  It may be loved ones, our jobs, our health, our strength, our physical appearance or the myriad of ego driven personas we believe ourselves to be.  The yoga sutras tell us that if we are aware of these Kleshas at the root, and Do not allow them to take hold in our psyches, we can release their power. Finding rest within the eternal part of ourselves illuminates the truth that  uncertainty is a core part of our existence. This understanding  is the key that gives us the courage to see through false promises and lack of control so we can ultimately  let go to live with freedom, peace and joy!
