Samskaras, Sankalpas, and Tapas: the Yogi way to start the New Year

People often start the New Year with resolutions to evolve or make significant life changes. However, this usually just leads to disappointment by the beginning of February as we go back to the same old patterns. This is because our habits don’t just disappear with a wish, they take reflection and commitment.

Throughout this Day Retreat, we will be exploring the yoga philosophy of Samskaras—our deeply ingrained patterns, both positive and negative—and look at realistic ways to try to understand them and to begin to make subtle shifts. Instead of resolutions, we will be setting Sankalpas—vows to commit to our true selves and the inherent nature that already resides within us.
