International Day of Yoga 2018
Class Location: The Hong Kong Hong Kong Jockey Club Hall
Asana is not a physical culture though the building of the body is a by-product of its practice. The purpose of Asana as per Yoga Sutras is to reduce confusion and weaken dualities of the mind through disciplining the body. Hence the practice has to incorporate full attention in order to synchronise movements of the body parts to attain a desired pose which must be stable and performed with relative ease. When practiced along with a breathing technique the mind becomes one pointed clearing the clouds of confusion.
Nada Yoga is ancient practice of meditating on the soothing sound of music or nature by bringing full attention to ears and then on to all the sounds around us and then connecting to the universal cosmic sound achieving a union in which one may lose himself.
