Take your yoga practice off the mat with the Tranquil Space Arlington Book Group, meeting next on Sunday, November 16, to discuss Journey Into Power by Baron Baptiste.
It all starts in your body, on the mat. (page 19)
“Now here” or “nowhere.” Interesting, isn’t it, how the only difference, really is a little extra space. (page 33)
The edge is where we come right up against ourselves and what we can do and be. It is the boundary between where we are and where we grow, the place of comfortable discomfort, where all growing and healing happens. The edge is the point in every pose when you are still within your capacities but challenging yourself to go just a little bit farther. Stepping up to this edge and daring to leap is how you break through and thus break with old ways of being. (page 29)
Journey Into Power provides insights into body, mind, and spirit helping us to tap into the deepest parts of the self. The book is a blend of philosophy and asana, including alignment fundamentals and explanations for why we do certain poses. If you are interested in taking your yoga practice deeper on and off the mat, this is a must read book.
Join us on November 16th at 7:30 PM in the Tea Lounge (at our Arlington studio) to enjoy tea, cookies, and lively conversation. All are welcome (reading of the entire book in advance is not required to join the discussion)! This is a free event and pre-registration is not required.
