So the last 12 days have been spent in The Gambia going into the teachings of Maha Yoga with @chrisgladwellyoga
What have I learnt?
Transcendence can be seen as a goal of yoga, to go so deep and experience pure emptiness. I have experienced snippets of this in my yoga practise thus far but what I have gained this week is a richer sense of relaxation. Relaxation is key to enable the self to drop more fully into the vastness of emptiness. Relaxation requires disciplined practise, strategic practise and dedication to practise. Then can drop into these deeper states. I always feel so inspired and learn so much whilst on retreats and ever excited to keep diving into these practises!
Experiencing the culture of The Gambia, such welcoming people, amazing scenery, beautiful beaches, eating tropical fruits, freshly made peanut butter, incredible trees and huge smiles on faces. Africa I shall return.
Yes and getting to spend it with a bunch of awesome fellow yogis
