An illuminating class where we use the principals of Tapas and Tejas from yoga philosophy to create beneficial challenges for the mind and body, then explore the opportunity to ‘earn light’, which will fundamentally change how we show up in this life.
Tapas means the stoking of our inner fire, which leads to the purification that builds character and strengthens our will. When you are able to say, ‘my intention is stronger than the obstacles I face; my willpower is stronger than my old patterns’ – i.e. when tapas is rightfully applied – it leads to Tejas (light). This class is designed to provoke thinking and action, and to take its learnings off the mat and into the world to create change.
Props (optional): bolster or cushion, 2 blocks
