Ayur-what-ic? Before we dive in… let’s play a word association game! Please read the words below and notice what images first come to mind: Science. Illness. Treatment. If you were born after the 18th century Industrial Revolution (which, let’s face it… you were), then you probably saw white lab coats, test tubes, needles, prescription drugs and fluorescent lit hospital hallways when you read the words above.
It’s a moment every yogi can relate to… There you are—45 minutes into your favorite class. Your teacher’s new sequence feels like it was designed specifically for you as the playlist moves you gracefully into deeper states of consciousness. Breath by breath, you ride the waves of each inhale and exhale like some kind of mystical yoga dolphin.
