asana and ayurveda (lecture and asana practice)

knowing your ayurvedic constitution ( unique mind-body type) benefits your practice of asana. understanding of your nature gives you an edge to the practice of yoga that achieves your personal best without stress and strain. the " no pain no gain motto" for achievement is out dated and is redefined by ayurveda as "less is more". in the bhagavad gita lord krishna tells arjuna, the great warrior the secret to success "first establish yourself in being, then perform action."
in this asana class we will explore the cycle of the asana, entering, staying and after asana state. how the form of mind linked with breath can be and is a continual act of harmony with nature.
