Monday 11th and last one Monday 18th
Yoga as usual at Greasby Centre tomorrow, Monday 11th December at 11.15a.m where we will continue to work with balances and connecting to our inner light during the dark winter months.
Next Monday, 18th December will be the last session before the Christmas break and the return will be in the New Year on Monday 8th January 2024.
Until then, remember that the longest night of darkness coms to an end on Friday 22nd December which is the 24-hour period of the winter solstice with the fewest daylight hours of the year.
The winter solstice can be seen as either the shortest day, or the longest night of the year depending on your perspective but either way it means that light nights and warmth will be on the way after the 22nd.
The astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson states that technically the cold does not exist it is rather a lack of warmth because there are degrees of warmth in the trillions but cold is finite known as Kelvins. So, apparently, we do not feel cold but rather a lack of warmth.

Both the winter solstice and the lack of warmth, or presence of cold as we lay folk might say, are all concerned with our perspective and yoga would ask us to connect to more than our outer sensations and responses. Yoga would ask us to contemplate who or what is experiencing the lack of warm or the view of longest night or shortest day?
Is it merely our physical experience that communicates or something within us that has deeper insights and knowledge.
That is the journey of yoga! The journey to the Self who also experiences along with the part of us that interacts with our outer world on this adventure in time and space.
The part of us that is beyond sensory input and the mind trying to make sense of the sensory input and connecting to both our external self to go deeper into our inner self. That is always the journey worth taking through yoga.
Looking forward to continuing our journey tomorrow.
