New Years Yoga Workshop

Jan 2, 2014 1:30-4:30 pm at One Yoga

Transitions in life – such as the New Year – awaken the human inclination for self-reflection. Any time we return to the eternal questions “Who am I?” and “How do I wish to live?”, is an auspicious time for yoga and spiritual inquiry. The New Years Yoga Workshop is an annual tradition of reflection and envisioning to support our inquiry.

This year we will explore the power of Sankalpa or “Inspired Intention”. It is not just any intention; it is a vow of heartfelt desire and willful determination. Sankalpa is a statement of guidance from our Highest Self, revealed through listening to our inner wisdom. By allowing us to see clearly what we really seek, Sankalpa empowers the mind to move from intention to realization.

The yoga tradition identifies four essential human desires that compel all our actions: meaning, prosperity, happiness and freedom. Through teaching, practice and self-reflection we will use these desires as the basis for exploring and realizing your Sankalpa. This vow becomes the force that brings our thoughts, choices and actions into alignment with our True Nature – empowering our ability to act while lessening our resistances, uncertainties and fear.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Learn the teaching of Sankalpa and the four essential human desires: meaning, prosperity, joy and freedom
  • Practice postures, breathing, meditation and chanting to support self-inquiry
  • Experience a guided process of meditation, self-reflection and journaling to reveal your sankalpa
  • Make a commitment of a 40 day practice to empower your sankalpa
