The Balance Between Effort and Surrender

Saturday, January 12th 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

oakland Symmetry Astrud Castillo Alameda Yoga Studio

Join Astrud for an exploration of the relationship between breath and body and the ability to bridge the gap between effort and surrender. In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali sutra 2.46- Sthira-Sukham Asanam invites us to honor and embrace our strength and stability as well as our ease and grace and to be present and find equanimity in our asana practice as well as our relationships. Honoring the duality between Shiva and Shakti and Radha and Krishna and the relationship to our inhale and exhale, this is the secret to a balanced, devotional way of life that allows for an embracing of life, reality and all its mystery.

Astrud Castillo has been teaching since 2001 nationally and internationally. Her teachers Mark Whitwell, Jasmine Tarkeshi and T.K.V Deskichar have inspired and fueled her practice for several years. She is a senior teacher at Laughing Lotus, leads kirtan in the USA and Europe, leads retreats to India annually and teaches Bhakti Yoga teacher trainings. She is devoted to transformation and wakefulness through the healing power of sound, vibration, asana, pranayama and most importantly relationship.
