Painful or Non Painful
October 2018

Yoga Sutra 1.5
“The fluctuations of the mind are of 5 fold and these are either painful or non painful”
The mind and it’s thoughts are what we call consciousness. Consciousness is how we perceive ourselves in the world. These thoughts are of 5 types and these will either be manifested as painful or non painful.
Patajali expresses it as painful or non painful instead of painful or pleasurable because something initially painful can become pleasurable and vice versa. For example the feelings of love. This is most certainly considered pleasurable. But if that love is a selfish one, it will ultimately end in pain. Only a love that is selfless, a love that is for the sake of love itself bearing no expectations or rewards expected can be non painful.
To live in a state of non painfulness is the ultimate goal.
For many this can be a life long practice.
First you must be able to recognize what is painful and non painful, only then can you make the discriminating choice between the two states.
And this recognition comes through the practice of yoga and meditation. When you are still and are able to go within, your ability to see with a selfless eye is honed and sharpened.

TearDrop Support Master Class
Rescheduled October 20th  3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Diana’s School of Yoga is presenting the TearDrop Support Cushions Master class. In this class you will learn the benefits of it’s wonderful design and ability to allow passive stretching for body.
Here is what the distributors of this amazing prop has to say:

“The Teardrop Support is the most effective, comfortable and least expensive back arch available anywhere. Made using the same sturdy cotton canvas that we use in our studio quality round and rectangular Bheka Bolsters, these little organic buckwheat hull filled back supports are double stitched and built to last.

  The unique design of the Teardrop support enables it to open your upper back, support your mid back and traction your lower spine. The overall effect frees most back pain sufferers from discomfort.

While the most common benefit of the Teardrop Support Cushion is to open the spaces between the vertebrae, restore the natural arch of the spine and relieve discomfort, it is useful for opening the chest, expanding the lungs and relaxing the entire body.”
And to take it a stop further it’s unique design conforms to all area of the body allowing release in many other areas as well.
Since it involves passive stretching it makes designing your own home Yoga practice a dream!
When: Saturday 10/20
Time:   3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Where: Diana’s School of Yoga
Class Fee: $30.00
TearDrop   $35.00

TearDrop Support Cushions are available to be purchased separtley from this Master Class.
