Yoga is not a magic pill to calm your irritation or stimulate your boredom. It is about riding the waves of life with resilience, strength and basic goodness. Drawing on the Buddhist teaching of Upekka, or equanimity, we will practice moving away from habitual drama and toward what Buddhist texts call, “the radiant calm of the mind.”
Asana is the perfect vehicle for this practice because you can’t get radiant or calm or present or strong without your body. Be ready to go slow or a little faster, to pay attention and not buy into everything you think because it is all impermanent anyway.
