Yoga & COVID-19

Now that we have entered Phase 5, classes are running pretty much as normal. I ask everyone to wash hands often and to stay away from class if you are feeling unwell. I will keep the doors and windows open, which should be pleasant as it is summer time. Booking is essential.
One of the aims of Yoga practice is to avoid future suffering. Heyaṃ duḥkhamanāgatam is the way to express this idea in Sanskrit (YS II.16).
Heyaṃ duḥkhamanāgatam asks us to take time before we act to ensure that what we do and do not do won't increase suffering, will reduce suffering and will prevent the return of suffering.
Thank you for your understanding
