Another beautiful discussion to share this month! We discussed the definition of "Yoga" as it is laid out in Patanjali's Sutras; we defined and discussed Samskaras, Citta, Vasanas, as they relate to our habits; Trauma in the body/mind; changing our habit patterns; and how interacting with family and close relationships is a True Test of our practice! We finished with how to work through it, and then we shared a Group Practice together <3
