Practice & Detachment (Abhyasa & Vairagya) - with Marla Apt

In the first chapter of the Yoga Sutras, Patañjali outlines what Iyengar refers to as the two wings of yoga: abhyasa (practice) and vairagya (detachment). Patañjali’s methodology for developing abhyasa and vairagya is called kriya yoga, Yoga of Action, which involves effort, study and transcendence. In this workshop, we will explore how to apply the practices of kriya yoga in asana and pranayama and how to balance along the thread of practice and detachment through our yoga practice.

MARLA APT is a Senior Intermediate level Iyengar yoga instructor based in Los Angeles, California and is on the faculty of the Iyengar Yoga Association of Southern California's Teacher Training Program. Since visiting India for the first time to conduct research for a degree in Buddhist Philosophy Marla has returned to spend a year studying at RIMYI. In a piece by Yoga Journal Magazine, Marla was highlighted as one of twenty-one young yoga teachers helping to “shape the future of yoga.” She has been involved with medical research at UCLA on yoga as a treatment for depression, anxiety and IBS. She created the first yoga therapy content to be incorporated into the curriculum of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
