Laura’s Fall Workshop (Laura Jarrait is back in town!)
“Skillful action is the appropriate response to the demands of the present moment with minimum effort and maximum effect.” FSY Aphorism
One of my favorite things that Laura used to say in her classes was that you would “get” a yoga pose “all of a sudden, after a long period of time.” The “getting” had to do with being able to exist comfortably in the pose or at least being able to understand what it requires. But the funny play on words is that this phenomenon seems to happen spontaneously while in reality it is the culmination of consistent effort tempered by nonattachment. In yoga parlance, consistent effort and nonattachment are called abhyasa and vairagya, and they are considered to be the two complementary pillars of the practice that form the foundation of skillful action. The weekend workshop that Laura will be leading on Sunday from 1-4pm will be a display in skillful action because rather than planning a specific theme and set sequence of poses, she has committed herself purely to complete presence. Through this demonstration of faith that things will unfold exactly as they need to, you will be able to both participate in and practice the message of the class. What a unique opportunity to study with such a dedicated yogini and skillful teacher! At the present moment, we still have several spots open in the workshop. Be sure to claim yours right now! Hope to see you in class soon.
