Living Consciously Lifestyle Program


Creating positive lifestyle changes 
The Online Living Consciously Lifestyle program covers 21 days and consists of 7 subjects of daily awareness and daily practices.  Each subject of awareness is practised for 3 days enabling a deeper understanding of the human personality, its inner and outer tendencies and habit patterns.  The regular practices and daily focus on techniques for developing self-observation, assists us to reflect objectively, be less reactive and to act more wisely with clarity and discernment.  

Sustaining lifestyle balance
To strengthen the understanding of self-observation a systematic progression of practices include;  setting a Sankalpa – intention, guided audios for asana, pranayama, yoga nidra – relaxation, meditation, readings from Yoga with Attitude and short videos expanding on the concept of self-observation.

Enhanced way of life 
The program is not the general zoom style.  It is self-motivational, using the reality of life as raw and real material for cultivating equanimity – balance of mind and awareness skills for living a more conscious and enhanced way of life.  The daily readings give guidance and focus to align oneself with the yogic philosophy as a way of Living Consciously and connecting or reconnecting with our deeper self and positive inherent nature. 

Daily subjects of self-observation practiced during the 21 days

  • observation of physical actions 
  • observation of sense experiences
  • awareness of thoughts
  • awareness of emotions
  • awareness of action and reaction
  • awareness of energy and its effects on the mind
  • awareness of attitudes, positivity, and negativity 

Precautions

  • All class recordings are of live classes conducted in the Ashram.  
  • Allow the practices of asana – postures and pranayama to unfold naturally.
  • According to your need, asana can be modified, visualized or replaced by a posture more suitable.  If the progression of asana and pranayama are not appropriate for you, please choose one of the previous classes.  Include the current focus of the day. 
  • It is important that asana is practised according to your ability, without straining the body to perform a position which may not be appropriate for you.  Work with your ability, and observe, that if allowed, the body and mind will become comfortable and accepting.  Self-acceptance, regular and sincere practice will allow you to open more fully to your positive and happier attitude and expression in life.
