Ghaëtan teaches YOGA AND SELF-AWARENESS (description below), starting January 23, 2016.

YOGA AND SELF-AWARENESS (FR)

This class’s focus is on the systematic observation and cultivation of self-awareness. Attention, the capacity to remain present with the self, is key throughout the process. Through sustained attention, the yoga practitioner maintains a focus in the here and now, allowing him or her to fully experience the posture at physical, emotional and cognitive levels.

Observation and self-awareness are foundational for the process, in which eventually the practitioner is lead to a deeper understanding of his or her existential nature and ultimately to awaken to his or her profound level of being.

The practice contains the following aspects:

  • Create a center space within which to observe what is happening within during the postures.
  • Develop a capacity to be attentive to what is being experienced physically, emotionally and mentally (mental activity).
  • Welcome what is being observed, from one’s own standpoint, in order to have a better understanding of the self.
  • Integrate the new understandings.
  • Avoid judgment, analysis, criticism or condemnation of what is being observed.
  • Bring yoga to daily life. From an observation of the self in a posture to an observation of the self in daily posture, such as driving, housecleaning, walking, etc.
