This is a physically focused session based on asanas (yogic poses). Breathing and meditation are woven into the practice.
Yoga asana as defined by Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra is “Sthiram sukham asanam” meaning “that position which is comfortable and steady”. It is a balance between ease and effort, between surrender and control.
In a traditional Raja Yoga style, asana is practiced to cultivate a comfortable and steady posture for an extended period, which is paramount to practicing meditation properly.
Asana is one component of the eight limbs of yoga as taught in the Raja Yoga tradition. These classes are focused more on the physical posture and learning to find a comfortable seat whatever posture one finds oneself in.
