In this Intermediate Vinyasa Yoga class, we use the sequence (the krama) to understand the purpose of Sankalpah (intention setting). This humble and humbling process encourages continuous questioning and openness to editing actions and thoughts. By doing so, it creates an opportunity for deep active presence that allows the practitioner to peel away from Asana as a primarily physical pursuit. This process also prevents the practitioner from engaging in “symbolic” action where the Asana or gestures within the Asanas only “symbolize” something profound when in fact the opposite is true. Thus, this process also prevents the trap of Spiritual Bypass.
