I always used to say to my husband that my body is my temple and little did I know at the time that I was quoting BKS Iyengar when he said “The body is your temple, keep it clean and pure for the soul to reside in”.
.
.
The one thing my body is, is my own. I am responsible for maintaining a healthy body and mind. So 2 years ago I was housing a little mini inside me for 9 months so it was even more important for me to keep maintaining a healthy body for us both. With all the hormones it was also critical to keep a healthy mind and soul. When people often ask me how do i have time to practice yoga daily as well as looking after mini and the household I find it funny as I have always made and found time for me during the day. Without my me time I struggle to help and look after others. .

What do you do to maintain your temple? 😍😍😍

The study of asana is not about mastering posture. It’s about using posture to understand and transform yourself. - BKS Iyengar ✨
👆🏻This is the reason behind my passion for asana. Yoga is so much more than fancy shapes on a brightly coloured piece of rubber. It is my deepest intention to guide my students to explore the depth of this practice and experience themselves fully. First on the mat then the rest will follow.
Come join me this week 🙏🏻

What I Learned in Pune
.
.
I learned in Pune that we may have the same destination but our journeys are different and they make us the individuals we are. When you see someone doing jaw dropping asanas you should never think that it is beyond you. You are looking at someone who is just further along in their journey. If you stick to your path you will eventually get there.
.
.
This transition from sirsasana to bakasana is something that improved for me while in #rimyi. Having a good sirsasana and bakasana doesn't guarantee that you'll be able to do this transition. The only way you will be able to do it is to practice the transition itself. .

Hot from our practice this morning- Frankie in his Eddie Betts shorts (Aussie football reference) cracking out a shoulder opener through the chair. He loves doing this, it’s always in his collection of poses. He gets so much out of it- see the chest expanding.
Breath finds more space , freedom comes to the neck and shoulder girdle, arms rotate, strengthen and you are now ready for down dog and inversions!

Earlier this year, I spent a few weeks reflecting before I made big changes to my life. The Govinda Valley community taught me how to truly live gratitude and surrender in kindness to myself and others. My yoga practice on and off the mat wouldn’t be what it is today without their influence. A fellow volunteer, Lily, passed me this book on the day she departed the retreat. Lily and I had a very different practice, but we shared a hall space together most dawns. Her gift was one of acknowledgement. She had seen my determination to practice and watched it grow, and shared this book to inspire me to continue. Lily, you also did not go unnoticed. Your patience, your deep listening, and your kind heart; awake long before my own rose. It was your example that encouraged me to make time and space, and journey beyond a practice simply in asanas. You will never know how this small act touched me. I will never know the challenge it was for you to wake up each and every morning. To others, you walked your journey with a facade of peace. I hope that you have found this in death, because now I will strive to live with my eyes open and ears in deep listening to those around me. I must strive to tell those around me that they are seen, and hope they will do the same. Your life, your hopes, your bravery, and your strength lives on through those that got to know even a fraction of you. Thank you, Lily.

Sunday’s spent in studio are Sunday’s well spent. “You do not need to seek freedom in a different land, for it exists with your own body, heart, mind, and soul.”

Today I got the chance to hang like this! How joyful it is to be to be in a long supported inversion. I miss my sling from Sydney but grateful to have the opportunity to experience it today. My UK rental home doesn't lend itself to this sort of set up!
Geeta Iyengar and Lois Steinberg describe the incredible benefits of inversions here: “… In addition to the reproductive effects, inversions also benefit the endocrine, lymphatic, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, urinary, excretory and central nervous systems. The pituitary, pineal, thyroid and adrenal glands receive a proper blood supply. Inversions are the greatest posesfor balancing hormones, which are also connected to maintaining bone density. Constipation, flatulence and hemorrhoids are alleviated. The urinary tract, urethra, kidneys and bladder benefit from the relief given by the anti-gravitational force. Again, mineral loss from the bones is checked when the muscles and bones are going against gravity. The resilience of the lungs is improved, and the body is kept warm. Retention of fluid, edema of the lower legs is reduced. The brain receives a healthy current of blood, is rejuvenated, and clarity of thoughts predominates. Sleep problems may improve. A state of equilibrium, balance, and health is established with regular practice of inversion.”Woman’s Yoga Practice by Geeta Iyengar and Lois Steinberg, p. 120#iyengaryoga #inversions#iyengarprops #joyofhangingupsidedown#loveyoga#happyback #bksiyengar

Finding some time to go inward and reflect can be challenging. On days where I️ can’t seem to find the time I really try to MAKE the time. 20 minutes to sit and take in your thoughts can help get through the day. Stop. Find your breath. Breathe. Focus. And then let it all go! You deserve at least 20 minutes for YOU! #soulfulsunday #meditate #findyourinnerpeace #calmmindsandgoodvibes #bksiyengar #bksiyengarquotes #guruji #gratitude

Quote from one of our students this week; " I've had a shoulder impingement for years from nursing, but it's improved so much since coming to yoga regularly"

Patanajali's Yoga Sutras 11:16 'Heyam dukham anagatam' -
The pains which are yet to come can be and are to be avoided.
Committed and regular attendance at Yoga keeps everything moving in the correct way - it is preventative.

You know that I've been broken down before
Now it's just something else I can't explore
I feel like every time, it takes less and less
To move on with my mind, there's nothing left

Now I want more
(I want more those days I want the sun in my eyes)
Now I want more
(I want more those feelings crawling up spine)
Every day I want more of the night
I want more of you ✨ a recent favorite song of mine Cold by Mating Ritual feat Lizzy Land ✨ #bfreeyogaaustin

Story about Yoga Props (sequencing)
B.K.S. Iyengar 基金公益瑜伽課

艾楊格瑜伽在B.K.S. Iyengar的引領下,已發展超過七十多年。其教學體系,特別重視體位法 (intricacies)、時間的控制 (timing) 和式子的編排 (sequencing of asanas)。 適當地編排式子的先後次序,可讓學員了解瑜伽練習對身體、心理和情緒轉變的認知。這有助我們提升整體的活力,平衡感和協調。

12月14日是Guruji的生日,讓我們一起為他無私的貢獻致敬。

當日Yogasala各導師將舉辦兩小時慈善課堂。課堂包括導師們運用不同輔具的瑜伽示範,講解式子編排的重要性。歡迎大家參加。

建議捐款: $200 / 堂 ( 課堂當日收益將全數捐到 Guruji 的基金會 BKSSNT )

請多多支持!
