Yoga and Human Being
Outline plan for the day.

The polarities of perusha and prakriti can be symbolically represented by the concepts of axis and form. An axis is an imaginary line around which form moves. form is what we see and what is manifest whilst axis can only ever be inferred. Also, form is finite and is continuously changing, whereas an axis is theoretically infinite - it is not bound by the limitations of form.  The role of prana is to bring perusha and prakriti into relationship, it dances between the two.  By playing with these ideas in asana and pranayama, we can deepen our practice in a creative way to enable an embodied experience of two fundamental concepts of yoga.
