“What is this body? A shadow of a shadow of your love, which somehow contains this universe.”
— Rumi
The Sanskrit name for the heart is hṛdaya. It translates to mean – centre; core; essence; the Self. Abhinava Gupta, the great sage described the heart, hṛdaya, as ‘mainstay’ or ‘resting place’.

The space where the breath merges between the breath’s movements is referred to as madhya – it also means centre or midpoint. It is the technical term for the still point between two phases of movement – a moment of pause. In Tantric schools madhya correlates with the heart.

Between these two Sanskrit words, we could say the heart describes a resting place or still-point where a merging occurs revealing the essence of pure being. The heart embodies a paradox at the core of yoga – a place of revelation within the physical and subtle body where the individual and universal meet.

Come join Anna for an afternoon that explores heart-based practice through back-bends, breath and meditation.
