Could Ayurveda help today’s fitness-based yoga culture? Spira-Radio Episode 4

Fitness is great, we need it, but yoga is so much more than Fitness. Yoga is about health and balance for mind and body; it is not concerned about looking good. Unfortunately, the more prolific yoga gets in mainstream culture with social media and large corporations, the more it loses its content as a wisdom tradition. Ayurveda is about bringing balance to self and the universe. In this episode, we will explain the basic concept of Ayurveda and discuss how these ideas could bring our current culture into greater health in both mind and body.

Yoga requires us to let go of perfection and enjoy the flow. The Japanese have an expression for finding beauty in imperfection, or imbalance; Wabi-Sabi. Well, this is a fun Spira Power Yoga flow class where nothing went as planned. Dora taught a perfect morning class on the breath, which went so well that she decided to repeat the class in the afternoon and record it… Well, Wabi-Sabi, the class ended being very different, with emphasis on letting go of perfection. Did we tell you? You can never repeat the past; everything is flow, everything changes. Enjoy wabi-sabi!

Amy is a teacher at Spira. There are her thoughts on life and yoga.
“It’s so easy to get caught up in preparing for an event – whether it’s a vacation or a concert or a night out. And when we’re busy in our minds and in our actions preparing for that thing -that show, it’s easy to forget the now.
