UPCOMING WORKSHOP: Bandhas Demystified - Jalandhara Bandha
Sunday, October 26, 1-5 pm
at Body Language Studio in Chino Valley, AZ
Pre-register with payment by Oct .19 here

The subtle body cannot yet be measured yet it cannot be discounted either.   Bandhas or energetic seals are used in yoga practice to redirect our energy, restoring and elevating us physically, mentally and spiritually.

Jalandhara Bandha,  the chin lock that stabilizes and calms the mind, keeping a cool head and awakening intuition. Through discussion and practice in asana, pranayama and meditation we will cover:
What is each bandha?
What are the benefits  and contraindications for practice?
When is it used?
Technique for each banhda.
Each workshop will include anatomy,  asana,  prarayama and  meditation related to the use of Uddhyana bandha.  Note :Mulabandha  and Uddhyana Bandhas will be recapped from our prior Bandhas De-Mystified workshops.   Fee: $50   Register Here

The passing of BKS Iyengar is momentous to so many in the world today.   Millions of people around the world are feeling the effects of this event and reflecting on his influence in their lives.   Mine, for one, would not have any resemblance to the life I have had without this man's inspiring practice and teaching.  

I cannot honor him enough except to continue to fan the flame of yoga through practice and teaching.

"Yoga is a light which, once lit, can never fade off.  The more you do, the brighter the flame burns in you."   BKS Iyengar

Jai Guru and pranams,

TRUSTING  In THE PROCESS OF YOGA


Awareness and understanding of yoga, or of anything that is important, grows at a unique rhythm and pace for every individual.  Trying to force a shortcut to maturity results in resistance, confusion, and separation.  This is the antithesis of yoga, since yoga is the unity of heart and soul from which trust and respect arise.  

Approaching yoga as a process, more akin to falling in love than to working toward a promotion, will make the experience one of expanding freedom.   Mastering technique and striving for accomplishment give way to joy and wonder.  In gaining trust in yoga's process there is a loss of trust in old responses that once may have "worked" to attain position or favor.  Relationship takes priority over results.  Trust is gained in the the kind response, the compassionate response to bring about deep and enduring supportive connections that are divinely human.
 
The new blog post,  Trusting in the Process of Yoga gives a few more thoughts on this topic.  We will be exploring this process in classes and workshops.  I look forward to seeing or hearing from you, my friends in yoga in the coming year.

Namaste,
Lynne
