abhyāsa-vairāgyābhyām tan nirodhah
- Patanjali's Yoga Sutra 1.12
 
Loving greetings
 
In the above verse, Patanjali reminds us that, if we want to achieve success in yoga and to experience inner peace, more than regular practice is necessary. Most yogis know about abhyāsa, which is regular steady practice for a long time, without interruption, with reverent devotion, respect, sincerity, positive attitude and full belief in what we are doing.
 
However, when I mention the second part of the sutra, i.e. vairāgya, most students look at me blankly. In addition to practicing diligently, we need to do it with detachment - and the highest form of vairāgya is non-attachment to all the things that we think limit us.
 
I'm planning to discuss this more in my new blog - and I look forward to receiving your comments.
 
For me, this autumn has been full of changes:
  • My website has been totally renovated - please have                         a look: www.FlyingMountainYoga.org
  • I'm now doing skype classes and mentoring sessions
  • I have a new email address: swami.saradananda@gmail.com
  • and...starting on Oct 6th, I'll be a university student again. I'm beginning a MA programme in "Traditions of Yoga and Meditation" at SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) at the University of London.
with best wishes

Feminine Face of Yoga

Sunday, 2nd October

10am-6pm at Patanjali Centre for Classical Yoga, Battle, E. Sussex

Join me on a fascinating day-long retreat that will include a balance of bhakti (devotion), karma yoga (selfless service) and discussion of ahimsa (non-violence). We will be relating these principles to the divine feminine archetype, which has a number of levels of meaning in yoga tradition – understanding them can assist you in taking your practice to a deeper level.

Journey thru the Chakras

Sunday, 18th September

2:30-5:30pm at Yotopia in Covent Garden

How smoothly your chakras function influences how fully you inhabit your physical body, the success of your relationships, and how much inner peace you enjoy. Swami Saradananda presents a down-to-earth approach to inner peace. Many of the exercises are aimed at eliminating the negative emotions associated with each of the chakras.

Mudras for Modern Life

Sunday, 30th October

2:30-5:30pm at Yotopia in Covent Garden

Mudras (yoga hand gestures) work at the physical, subtle, psychological and spiritual levels. Most are easy to do; yet are so powerful that regular practice can create inner peace and deep strength, eliminate fatigue and anxiety, protect your physical and emotional health, transcend stress and depression, reduce your guilt and anger, calm your mind, sharpen your intuition and promote happiness.
This workshop is a interest to anyone who works on a computer.

Mudras for Modern Life - in translation
This Autumn, my book "Mudras for Modern Life" is being released in French, Spanish, Dutch and Norwegian. This is in addition to the German version that came out last Spring.
 
The thought that my book is inspiring so many yogis inspires me to practice more so that I have more to write about.
