Workshops – Understanding Yoga and The Yogi
Melbourne Yoga and Meditation Centre >> offers the more dedicated student an ongoing meditation and study program and regular workshops to introduce these studies. Spiritual insights unfold on an accurate rationale. The writers of the original teachings understand this rationale, and it is to these writers and yogis which we refer in our meditations and studies. Some of the deeper teachings and references are found here on our Blog. But it is suggested that the Workshops are a useful beginning if you would like personal guidance, and the ability to ask questions relevant to your individual direction.
Each Workshop introduces an accent on the following month of daily Practices and Meditations in our studio. The workshop gives an insight into the topic and the practical application of its technique in individual development, in the world.
Yoga is no mere exercise routine for just keeping fit and relaxing. Yoga has a development procedure starting with physical disciplines, passing through mental and psychological disciplines, opening to individual talent development, Self-understanding and Spiritual Insight. Through Samadhic Contemplation, the Reflexive Self-consciousness we seek, all truly valuable possibilites arise.
Melbourne Yoga and Meditation Centre offers teachings in every phase of Yogic development.

INNER FEELING – There is an inner feeling at any given moment either of passivity to the world’s events, or of an active assumption of a self-directive. The feelings are quite different. The passive is accompanied by a down-drift quality, the active with a “forwards and upwards” quality. Discover the difference between these two feelings through your Yoga and Meditation disciplines, and what the consequences are of identifying with each in your individual development.

WILL and the SPIRITUAL WARRIOR – WILL is not WISH, WANT, or DESIRE. Will is Spirit, initiative, the starter of every original act. What is not will is inertia. Inertia is the after-motion of a once-originating will. The Spiritual Warrior is he who makes war against everything that impedes his own true perception of his being and of the Infinite Reality which is his source.
