The Obvious vs The Important

Spring is upon us! Here are some seasonal ideas for your yoga practice.
On Sunday (21st March) we have a yoga workshop at Poole Yogashala with the theme "The Obvious vs The Important". Last night I watched Brian Cox's tv program about the solar system. He described how when watching the movement of the stars, the heavens are seen to revolve around the earth. It's obvious but it's also wrong.
We fall into the trap of mistaking the obvious for the important, for the truth, in all aspects of our lives including our yoga practice. As long as we accept the obvious we stop enquiring and so never discover the truth. We need to put aside what we think we know to find something new and refine our understanding.
There are still some places available in the workshop. Email me if you are interested in joining us.
