The Middle Path: Applied Yoga Therapeutics
“yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured”
“The paths we follow through life are at times determined by us and sometimes chosen for us. Our yogic path follows a similar form. In the modern world our yoga practice may have occasionally taken us to social media with contortionist clips of scantily clad beautiful bodies, which has become the path of aesthetically pleasing yoga. Another more complaisant path or, the path of “I just can’t be bothered”, which we all have taken, is when we head to the yoga studio or press play on a DVD and allow someone else to lead us through a practice. Somedays we follow one path, later that day we might follow another. Even the paths that have led us to yoga might not have been conscious decisions. The decision or influence that led us to the style of yoga we practiced five years ago may not be the same path we are on today.
Paths diverging, paths intersecting, paths beginning, and paths we keep veering off of…
The “Middle Path” is a metaphor for balance, for the spine and for a yogic practice with a method of healing as its basis. The Middle Path is different for each of us but with the commonality that it takes the form of a holistic therapy. It is an intentional path chosen and cannot be deviated from, as it’s end is the goal for all that choose it. Based on different yogic techniques, philosophies and other mediums of therapy The Middle Path helps us assess ourselves and others. It is through that assessment of the individual and observing roots of pain and disturbance of balance, we can bespoke our practice and create a form of dynamic therapy for ourselves and those in our community.”
