Mens’ Kula

WHAT’S MEN’S KULA?

What’s unique about Men’s Kula is that we practice together, exploring a theme about masculinity. We check in around our relationship to the theme, and do practices including pranayama, asana, chanting, to help embody the object of the theme more fully. 

Come practice together at Spring/Fall studios, then join us for brunch at Tomate cafe after.

August Kula led by David Schlussel: AWARENESS

Awareness –
 
Our minds are incredibly fast – so fast that you could look at these colors on the screen, interpret them as letters, as words, as sentences… and follow right along. We cna evne do it wiht messplelings…
 
There is a great benefit to the minds ability to fill in the gaps with what it already knows. There is a cost as well. The yoga sutras tell us that when the mind is still, we can see who we truly are: as pure AWARENESS, otherwise, we’ll think we are our mind.
 
This shows up in a typical yoga practice as us believing in our limitations. We feel something, and our mind says “that’s it” and we tend to believe it… unless we slow down our thoughts, and simply observe – I remember my first example of this – in an early yoga class, didn’t think I could touch my toes, so I would just hang in a forward bend, fingers dangling above my toes, until my teacher suggested I straighten my fingers, and the connection was made. I was so close and just simply didn’t believe enough to literally lift a finger to reach my toes.
 
So in the practice this month, we’ll be slowing down, settling our minds, and observing ourselves.
 
No yoga experience necessary. All levels welcome.
 
This month the practice will be led by David Schlussel
