Effortful & effortless practices

Our time together will be to investigate the benefits and dangers of an effortful practice and those of an effortless practice, in order to find the quality of brahmacharya*, the middle way, which will allow our sadhana to be both intuitive and alive, but also challenging and transformational at the same time.

Full Description

SHOULD THE PRACTICE BE EFFORTFUL OR EFFORTLESS?
...finding the middle way…
with Sònia Isart (yoga teacher & bodyworker)

When practicing yoga we are asked to choose between what has been called yang practices (mainly vinyasa) or yin practices (mainly yin yoga)...Together we will explore effortful and effortless practices and we’ll learn how to integrate them in a fuller experience and potentiality of the present moment.

Our time together will be to investigate the benefits and dangers of an effortful practice and those of an effortless practice, in order to find the quality of brahmacharya*, the middle way, which will allow our sadhana to be both intuitive and alive, but also challenging and transformational at the same time.

When questioning our beliefs about the practice, and exploring new ways to approach it, new opportunities for self-knowledge open up. New insights, connections, experiences. And we might learn there is not just one way but several, and we need to always choose what it is more appropriate for the present moment: therefore opening to the creative process of being and living.

"Sònia's being is an invitation to rest deeply within ourselves. Her rich and textural teaching and exploration of the inner landscape draw us into a more sensual experience of all that is occuring. She demonstrates a rare skill of courageous and rigorous self study. Her offering shimmers with tender vulnerability". by Kira Sloane

Sònia Isart is Nomad Yoga's founder and belongs to the international yoga community where you can find some of her teachings on video.

*”Brahmacharya literally means to dwell in Brahman (the Vastness). All practice of Yoga is intended into assist us in relating us more and more to the subtler and vaster realities, in which we live and move and have our true being. In this effort, a repeated practice of containment of all our energies is required, always searching for the right balance between indulgence and depravation”. Ravi Ravindra
