Not Too Tight, Not Too Loose: Balancing Effort and Letting Go
by Poep Sa Frank Jude Boccio
Saturday, September 14th, 1:00-3:30p
Learn how to integrate the polarities of effort and surrender and find balance in practice and in life. 

As students of yoga, we are often told to  “let be,” and “let go.” We are also instructed to “practice, practice, practice!”  The intention behind the practice of yoga integrates the two apparently contradictory impulses of effort (abhyasa) and surrender (vairagya).  The Buddha used the metaphor of tuning a stringed instrument so that it sounded harmonious and encouraged his students: “Not too tight, not too loose.”  Workshop includes: Discussion and asana for all levels.
