LIVING YOGA PHILOSOPHY
– WITH EMMA PALMER
LIFESTYLE OF THE MODERN YOGI
Dinacharya is a concept from the Ayurvedic teachings that guides us to establishing daily routines that support our awakening and evolving spiritual practice. With time, dedication and consistency our practice – or Sādhana – calls us to go deeper into reflection on the lifestyle we have created for ourselves; asking us to consider honestly the patterns of behaviour we have established and whether or not they are in alignment with who we are today.
We come to a time in our lives where we are being asked to care for ourselves in a new way – to explore how the fruits of our practice can continue to grow beyond the mat and within the very fabric of our being, to positively enrich our whole living experience.
“You are being asked to care for yourself in a new way. To replace the old worn-out circuitry of shame and self-abandonment with that of curiosity, empathy and holding. To set aside the fantasy of winning the war and to step off the battlefield and into the water of life.” – Matt Licata
The teachings of our Sādhana echo their wisdom throughout our day, and essentially call us back home when we have become hijacked by our demanding lives. They seep into our dreams, asking us to step more fully into who we are and pointing to what is needed in order to best support that.
In our next Living Yoga Philosophy class, Emma Palmer explores the teachings of Dinacharya – the lifestyle of the practice – and the lifestyle choices we can implement amidst the demands of the modern world that support us to rise and meet the needs of our ever-evolving states of being with greater wholeness, presence and aliveness.
“My beloved child, break your heart no longer. Each time you judge yourself, you break your own heart; you stop feeding on the love, which is the wellspring of your vitality. The time has come. Your time to live – to celebrate. And to see the goodness that you are. You, my child, are Divine. You are pure. You are sublimely free. You are God in disguise and you’re always perfectly safe. Do not fight the dark, just turn on the light. Let go and Breathe into the Goodness that you are.” – Swami Kripalu
