Vajrasati Yoga at Yoga Arch
Vajrasati Yoga aims to implicitly and explicitly explore the yoga teachings of Patanajali, the Buddha, Non-Dual Saiva Tantra and other great Indian teachers/teachings in a non-abstract experiential way, most commonly this is done in the school through bodywork recognisable to anyone who has come across a Modern Postural Yoga class (most studio classes come under this category).
The ultimate goal of practice is leading each student towards ‘moksha’ a Sanskrit word meaning liberation or freedom which is a realisation of ones fundamentally interconnected state.
The school seeks to achieve these ends through encouraging students to practice whilst exploring yogic principles such as set out in the Yamas and Niyamas of Patañjali’s sūtras. In particular; non-violence (ahimsa), honesty (satya), investigation (svadyaya) and a sense of trust in a Knowing (Sanskrit – Prajñā). This Knowing is not stored or learned but more ‘plugged into’ (ishvara pranidhana).
The focus on Iyengar yoga is on alignment and extension, creating strength, flexibility and evenness in the body connecting the body with the breath and the mind , creating evenness and stability in the mind.
Iyengar yoga is a rounded and balanced practice. It is a holistic approach and practice for your whole life. There is a strong emphasis on teaching in Iyengar yoga. It is culture of teaching and learning. The student can begin to start their own practice with the knowledge they gain in class. We also focus a lot on inversions ( going upside down ) as these asana’s have enormous health benefits and are also seen as the gateway to meditation.
Each week the class will be different, moving from standings (including balancing) forwards bends, back bends, twists, restorative and pranayama. We also practice Surya namaskar and jumping when the students become more experienced. As a student you move towards staying for longer periods in the asanas, to explore them in depth. This leads to meditation in action, by placing the mind in the body everyday thoughts cease.
