Just working on translating 2.48 and 2.50 this week and considering these two apparent definitions of yoga. This discussion has been so helpful in my exploration. I hope we can have James back to teach in subsequent seasons! (or in any other show, for that matter!)
Kate, we are cooking on a great show with James to be filmed this year. Will share details once revealed! xok

WooHoo! Is it about Sankhya? It's okay - you don't have to tell!! Can't wait. His offerings are first rate.

Evenness and skillfullness in action are THE two great definitions of yoga so grateful of the very helpful exploration here - being steady in all that we do, and being skillfull in all that we do - and do it everyday, all day - that's the real practice !  I think once you realise that all actions can be yoga it becomes very interesting and rewarding ..
re-listening to 2.50 gave me an idea about actionless yoga which you mentioned James in recent live teachings.  I feel like it could be that actionless action is being present in all that we do without expectations; I was a little confused with "actionless action" but making our action yoga makes sense.  Skillfulness in action fits, thank you - I love cross referencing talks...everything is connected
