Yoga Workshop – Exploring Clarity
Do we always think clearly? Our thoughts are real but are they always true?
In this workshop, we’ll explore
- how to recognise blurred, unhelpful thought patterns
- how you can gain greater self-awareness
- how yoga / embodiment practice can sharpen your mind
One of the five afflictions identified in the Yoga Sutra is Avidyā – illusion, misconception, not seeing clearly.
We’ll consider not thinking clearly from the Eastern viewpoint of Avidyā and the Western of thought distortions.
We’ll investigate the idea from Tsoknyi Rinpoche that are thoughts might feel real but they’re not always true.
Eastern Philosophy and Western Psychology
The theory covered in the workshop will be based on yoga philosophy and Western psychology. We will explore the idea of Avidyā, misconception and how our yoga practice can help us gain more clarity.
You will be given tips and techniques to help you become aware of when our thoughts are distorted. There will be opportunities to discuss the concepts Beth introduces and how it relates to our everyday lives.
The 2-hour morning session will be made up of:-
- Short talks – exploring concepts through listening and reflection.
- Practical application of tools from yoga, embodiment and mindfulness.
- There will be time for discussion and opportunities to ask questions and make observations.
NB – This isn’t a physical yoga class. Due to the subject of the workshop you won’t need a yoga mat. We may a try holding our body in different positions that can be done sitting or standing.
