THE FLOW OF PRARTHANA (PRAYER)
– A YOGA INTENSIVE WITH EMMA PALMER
“Prayer may just be the most powerful tool mankind has.” – Ted Dekker
How can we be open to receiving the answers when we haven’t even asked the questions?
Prarthana relates to the power of prayer and the calling for guidance and clarity, while honouring the longing of the Soul to be in deep communion with all that is.
The practice of Asana as a moving prayer in our Sadhana has the capacity to create and re-establish alignment with our true essence through movement of the body. It is through this alignment we reconnect back to the very source that guides the breath to flow through the body, as an offering and a prayer of surrender. In this union (Yoga) of the individualised Soul (Jivatman) and the Supreme Soul (Paramātmā), the pockets of stillness that arise allow the wisdom to reveal itself with a greater sense of clarity, depth and understanding.
“The inner voice is something which cannot be described in words. But sometimes we have a positive feeling that something in us prompts us to do a certain thing. The time when I learnt to recognise this voice was, I may say, the time when I started praying regularly.” – Mahatma Gandhi
This Yoga Intensive will guide you on a journey of self-enquiry and discovery, through a Vinyasa Krama sequence of sacred Yoga practices including Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Dhyana (meditation) and Mantra as a moving prayer and offering. Join us on a journey within to call on the internal guidance system for wisdom that equally awaits our questioning to reveal a richer understanding and steer us to a place of indisputable faith as we navigate the voyage of life.
“The Simple Path: Silence is Prayer; Prayer is Faith; Faith is Love; Love is Service; The Fruit of Service is Peace.” – Mother Teresa
