Damian Rocks from “Stars Like You” answers a couple of questions about the combination of Astrology and Yoga.
1) What will I experience when attending an Astrology / Yoga workshop?
When you attend a yoga and astrology workshop you gain a new way to understand and deepen your practice. Astrology and yoga have been sister sciences for thousands of years. Through yoga, we learn to deepen our body awareness, and find our centre through movement and breath. With astrology, we deepen our awareness of the psychological drives, which motivate us and find practical tools for experiencing our full potential.
Our first workshop, “Discover Your Solar Journey” on 30 June, explores solar asana such as Surya Namaskar, and teaches the participant to notice how yang postures will activate creativity and personal will.
We will then translate this into an astrological context, showing you how your Sun Sign also describes ways in which you can harness your innate creativity and sense of purpose
The entire workshop is an extended meditation on your core motives and drives and how these can be activated to enhance your life experience.
You will receive a copy of your personal birth chart and an asana series that you can take home to practice on your own
2) How does knowing my Sun Sign help my yoga practice?
The fundamental principles of astrology are also found in yoga practice. Hatha Yoga – literally meaning Sun (ha) and Moon (tha) – explores the balance between Purusha and Prakruti, the essential masculine and feminine universal forces. Astrology does the same as it seeks to understand the balance of elements and polarities within the personality.
Knowing your Sun Sign will show you where and how you seek to strive in the world, and the areas of life experience that will lead to a greater sense of authenticity and personal fulfillment. When we come to this awareness we can address internal obstacles and create the right conditions to generate both health and personal happiness.
When you understand the psychological underpinnings of astrology, you can harness this tool for your yoga practice. You can explore both your active drives to accomplish and achieve as well as your receptive needs to connect and feel.
As you achieve greater psychological integration through the study or astrology you also release energetic blocks held within the body that interfere with yoga practice. Spiritual growth then happens at every level from the physical through to the mental, emotional and psychological. This leads to a balanced way of being and a more creative life.
