Yoga for Heart to Heart Relationships
May 2: The Power of the Heart. “Building trust into every connection”
Saturday, 10:00-11:30 am
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” – Carl Jung
We will integrate two principles of the Yamas and Niyamas from Patanjali:
- Santosha – a yoga practice for acceptance, gratitude and respect
- Saucha – using asana and pranayama practice for focus, cleansing and progress
Through asanas, breath-work and stillness we will slow down our thoughts and examine how we “react or respond” in our daily lives with our partners, family or friends; and as we do so, look at how we can motivate and build “harmonic relationships” that increase trust and heart opening interactions. We will explore the idea of Harmonic Balance – the yoga of harmonious awareness in interactions and how we strengthen our relationships with every connection.
Within the ancient science of yoga there is much wisdom about how to live a joyful life and one filled with beautiful experiences. In this series, we uncover and explore some of this wisdom by looking at it in a modern day context. Each session will focus on particular ways in which our societal and cultural conditioning tend to reinforce separation instead of unity. We look at our typical ways of interacting with others when we are hurt or unaware that something is disturbing us, and how the simple but powerful knowledge and practices can elevate and evolve our awareness to create harmonic relationships. We also look at how to strengthen your yoga practices of movement, breath and stillness with affirmations and intentions of creating new habits for yourself.
“When you struggle with your partner, you are struggling with yourself. Every fault you see in them touches a denied weakness in yourself.” -Deepak Chopra

More Information on this series:
The idea of Creating Harmonic Relationships is about amplifying the effect of what you think, say and do in order to strengthen your relationships with others. A harmonic of a wave is a component frequency of the signal that is an integer multiple of the fundamental frequency, so what we explore in this series are practices that strengthen the heart-to-heart connections between friends, family and loved ones. If we become consciously aware of the ways in which we unconsciously weaken or “deharmonize” our relationships through our current habits and quirks of character, we can then learn to acquire new ways of interacting that build trust and inspire others to open and come closer.
