Yogasana: asana that works with mind body breath, time and space to guide us into the power of our own presence.

At the Hervey Bay School of Yoga students learn, study and practice asana.  In learning to work in these three distinct modes within asana we train ourselves to recognize the link between our physical body, our mental/emotional experience and the capacity to grow wisdom and peace.

Students learn asana to awaken the energy and intelligence of the physical body.
The 'learning mode' is applied to broaden our repertoire of asana and to develop a range of techniques for accessing more difficult asana.

Students study asana to recognize the link between the mind, emotions and breath.
The ‘studying mode’ is the process of refining our perception. We re-cognise asana as we discern the center of gravity, directions of extension and our capacity to access the asana without pushing, grasping, shrinking or collapsing into our habits.

Students practice asana to discipline the mind and habituate it to stillness and silence.
In the 'practice mode' we work with asana that we are competent in. We apply repetition and timings to achieve what Prashant Iyengar would call "effortless effort".

With repetition and methodical discipline we re-view and realign our perspective of experience to gain accuracy and clarity of perception. The teaching/learning process uses props such as chairs, ropes, blocks and walls to engage different layers of experience so that over time students habituate the mind to stillness and silence which allows day to day life to become more peaceful. This approach to teaching/learning holds alignment with classical yoga where the body is trained to become an instrument of meditation and enlightenment.
