Breathing through imperfect lines: Sketch by Natasha Gunn
When used as a tool for self-transformation and awakening to clearer awareness, yoga starts the moment a student first pays attention to what he or she is doing in the practice.
If a student is unsteady, falling, in pain, or distracted by discomfort, the tendency will be to go back into his or her analytical or agitated mind. Sthira and sukham— steadiness and ease— give the asanas their transformative potential.
Being steady does not mean being perfectly still in a pose that you hold for a very long time. Asanas, by contrast, are alive, in each moment a unique expression of the human being doing them.
From 21 October, Yoga Nieuw-west moves to the brand new building, just three minutes away from the older location, at:
De Honingraat Slotermeerlaan 103F 1063 JN Amsterdam
Next week, the Wednesday lesson (16 Oct) is in the old location (Huis van de Wijk ‘Multibox’, Jan de Louter straat, 19,) as usual and at the usual time.
There is NO lesson on Thursday (17 Oct) due to the move.
