Women, Food, and Spirituality

The Yoga Matrix: The Body as a Gateway to Freedom

The Yoga Matrix

The Body as a Gateway to Freedom

The Yoga Matrix has become revered as an invaluable resource for all students of yoga as a detailed overview of the rich teachings and sutras that inform the many schools of yoga. In the lectures Richard reveals how the body can serve as the ultimate laboratory, temple, and place of pilgrimage for spiritual inquiry. Looking back 5,000 years to early texts, he observes how the living roots of yoga philosophy have grown into many schools, techniques, and philosophies that are united by a vast, interpenetrating “matrix.” This matrix holds the key to understanding yoga’s full depth and greater purpose.

Studio Talks: Gazing Dristi

Studio Talks

Gazing Dristi

Placement of the gaze on a single point inside or outside the body helps the mind to flow into single pointed meditation. In each posture there is a specific Drsti or gaze, which, in some circumstances, is modified as one goes deeper into the practice. In this talk, Richard reveals the complexities and importance of Dristi and explains how the technique is central to the elimination of extraneous tension during the practice. By feeling the palate (the roof of the mouth) as being “empty”, just as when smiling, the prana (inhale) and apana (exhale) can unite and the yoga can become a full meditation in action.

Studio Talks: Prana

Studio Talks: Prana

Prana is breath, life force, inner breath; prana is the substratum of perception. Prana is the substratum of thought, or chita. It is the way that perception is organized into patterns and it is only through patterns and organization that you know something, that you are consciously aware of something. In this “Studio Talk” Richard details the central relevance of awareness of breath to a balanced and full yoga practice and how this awareness draws us into a full and profound understanding of the present moment and reality itself.
