Yogascitta vṛtti nirodhah (1:2)
Yoga is the stilling of the modifications of the internal landscape.
– Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali
How Is The Renegade Method™ a Foundational Practice of Yoga?
Yoga is the practice of unification of the body-mind towards the cultivation of awareness that is capable of holding all life experiences without feeling bound by them. The modifications of the mind are experienced as the limiting beliefs about ourselves and the world, and as a consequence use up our energy that becomes unavailable for other endeavors. Such limiting beliefs are the result of a false identification with the subconscious patterns developed early in life which can often lead to addiction, persistent anxiety, despair, anger, unworthiness, self-doubt, or a feeling of being stuck in life.
In The Renegade Method™, we learn to question how we expend our prāṇa in these subconscious patterns and how to preserve it by cultivating focus and continuously evaluating and refining our actions, speech and thoughts. While thoughts and emotions arise in our conscious mind, it’s the subconscious that controls our patterns. In order to make lasting change on any spiritual path or a path of personal growth, we have to go deeper to uncover what is hidden in our subconscious mind and free that energy to allow prāṇa to flow towards transmutation and the expansion of our potential for freedom impacting our relationships, careers, creativity, and overall well-being.
How can self-inquiry support you specifically, in your life, work, or a spiritual practice?
If you’re a yoga teacher or a practitioner in other holistic disciplines this is an opportunity to discover the unique benefits of self-inquiry to unlock your full potential through:
- Personal transformation: You will develop an embodied self-awareness, furthering your understanding of yourself and supercharging your spiritual practices.
- Practical approach: The difference between an excellent teaching and a life-changing teaching lies in its applicability in everyday life. Self-inquiry shouldn’t be just about theory, and this is where The Renegade Method™ is different. You’ll gain access to a toolkit of practical techniques that can be seamlessly integrated into every aspect of your life.
- Holistic perspective: Self-inquiry integrates the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of our lives, offering a comprehensive perspective on practicing (and facilitating) yoga and other holistic disciplines.
- Deepened connections: Forge profound connections with people in your life. Self-inquiry will help you build deeper bonds with your students and colleagues, creating a nurturing and fulfilling learning environment and fostering a sense of community and shared growth.
Enhanced teaching skills: Self-inquiry isn’t just about self-discovery; it’s a powerful teaching tool that will make you a more effective and inspiring instructor. Learn how to incorporate the discoveries you made during your self-inquiry process into your yoga classes and holistic sessions, guiding your students with authenticity on a relevant inner journey.
