Artist Ana Pollak’s ‘No-where to go.’
How to explain this word?
It is a ‘Yes,’ to only what you know that you are seeking, without necessarily knowing what it is as you begin.
It is the response to the longing of the soul looking for a place to rest, to come home. It is a ‘Yes’ to take seriously your life and what calls you. That you, the keeper of your life you will honour this.
It does not mean that Yoga or any particular way of starting is the way, but that you will make a commitment to apply yourself, learning to listen and pay attention.
Sadhana is not implying we start a fresh page, though we may wish we were. It is a response to the desire to move forward, to look at our experiences freshly, with an open mind. We often act blindly, not knowing why we do things, what is leading us, often a reaction to our past stories. Our past is in the present, colouring and obfuscating what we see and hear, our past must be seen freshly, so we can live in the present.
Yoga, like Buddhism, is a practice, we learn by doing. It is not a religion, yet in religion too, we require a way of exploring.
This is Sadhana.
Teacher Student Relationship
Working with a teacher is an important component of learning. It is important that you feel comfortable with your teacher and ready to embark of a deeper learning relationship with her. The teacher then gets to know you and what you are working with. It is a learning that is not done alone. You become part of this lineage through your relationship with a senior teacher, who can then support your deeper learning.
- You will be part of a learning community, and this is a great and necessary supportive structure.
- You will be able to access study material from Slack for your reading, practising and collaborative research.
- There will be practice sessions available for you to attend if you live in Sydney.
