“The practice of yogasana for the sake of health, to keep fit, or to maintain flexibility is the external practice of yoga. While this is a legitimate place to begin, it is not the end. As one penetrates the inner body more deeply, one’s mind becomes immersed in the asana.
The first external practice remains dry and peripheral, while the second more intense practice literally soaks the practitioner with sweat, making him wet enough to pursue the deeper effects of the asana”

VITALITY-The Energy Body 🌞🌬️“Exhalation is a sacred act of surrender, of self-abandonment. At the same time we abandon all those stored up impurities that cling to the self—our resentments, angers, regrets, desires, envious, frustrations, and feelings of superiority inadequacy and also the negativity that causes the obstacles to adhere to consciousness. When #ego falls away, they fall away with it. Of course they return, but the remembered experience of #peace acts as proof that these obstacles are not insurmountable; they can be detached and disposed of. Ultimately they are not permanent and integral to consciousness but ailments that can be cured...” #BKSIyengar #Iyengar #exerpt #LightOnLife #book #philosophy #wisdom ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ Who gives you an opportunity to disconnect from the demands of your life? What kinds of engagement outside of work, social media, detaches you from the “grind”? How can we free ourselves in order to refresh, rejuvenate, reset ourselves so we can refocus, rebalance & approach the external world with a fresh perspective, new insight & more energy? NURTURE YOUR NATURE. It is all there for us. The answers are always with us & often they are cultivated through nurturing the very connections that take us outside of ourselves, promote healthy detachment, foster imagination, creativity & ❤️. We lose track of time, we flow with, not against & all becomes a simple, ease of effortless effort in the presence this beautiful phenomena...as simple as learning to #exhale. Stop holding your breath! 😘

"Yoga allows you to achieve a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit the broken pieces together. Yoga allows you to find an inner peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and struggles of life. Yoga allows you to find a new kind of freedom that you may not have known existed. "➖ B.K.S Iyengar 'Light on Life'

Corto y simple!
"Debes pugarte antes de encontrar faltas en otros. Cuando vez un error en alguien más, trata de encontrar ese error en ti mismo. Ésta es la forma de tomar un juicio y convertirlo en mejora. No mires a los otros cuerpos con envidia o con superioridad. Todos nacemos con diferentes constituciones. Nunca te compares con otros. Las capacidades de cada uno son una función dr la fuerza de cada uno. Conoce tus capacidades y constantemente mejoralas."

“Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of #wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you’re constantly trying to fit the broken pieces together. 💫
Yoga allows you to find an inner #peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and #struggles of life.
Yoga allows you to find a new kind of freedom that you may not have known even existed.
To a Yogi, #freedom implies not being battered by the #dualities of life, its ups and downs, its pleasures and its suffering. It implies #equanimity and ultimately that there is an inner serene core of one’s being that is never out of touch with the unchanging, #eternal infinite.”

This place has a special flavour, a taste of freedom, a place of retreat, that accepts all sorts of humans to give them a glimpse of the simple life, a bit of nature in their lives. Mother Earth has become, over the years, a concept that people experience for a few hours, a few days before going back to their lies.
Staring at the Earth sitting on a plastic chair is a bit of a concept, a tame attempt to be part of the cosmos, where the unknown is left to the wild and the man-made become the Sapiens kingdom.. •

When students ask to learn more about yoga, we often refer them to the writings of B.K.S. Iyengar. There’s such wisdom & poetry to his words. 🙏🏻 #bksiyengar #lightonyoga #lightonlife #youarethelight #yoga #alwayslearning

Sauca, purity.... in Light in Life B.K.S. Iyengar says that ‘the body is the child of the soul’. We are each born with clarity and innocence, unconditioned by experience, pure awareness.
As we move through life, our sensory organs (eyes, ears, nose, tongue, skin) get bombarded with information and as we process it all, our Lens of perception gets clouded, and confusion sets in as to what is real and unreal.
We attach meaning to sensations, emotions, identities, all coming from the outside world, and we lose touch of this pure awareness that lives within.
In yoga, we work to ‘polish the Lens of perception’ so that we can observe with awareness, and see more clearly into our experience of each moment. The teachings of yoga remind us that our body is the vehicle in which we move through this world, but there is a whole universe that exists within.... ✨

Happy International Yoga Day to all.
.
.

A year ago in January 2017, I started taking classes and practicing Iyengar Yoga. I always imagined and deeply aspired to do sirsasana one day. It seems I have reached a milestone for myself but this is just the beginning and it is a life long path. The deeper the roots, the stronger the tree.
.
.
I am so grateful for the precious gift of Yoga especially Iyengar yoga.

My crazy upside down world has become more stable over the period of last one year. 🙏🏻😇 #internationalyogaday #internationalyogaday2018 #iyengaryoga #LightOnLife #lightonyoga #healthylifestyle #healthiswealth

SVADHYAYA | The study of the self is at the core of a yoga practice or Sadhana. Far from navel gazing and egotistical this is the powerful realisation that to understand the world around us we need to turn in and understand our own nature, our own experience. We can use our experiences to build greater knowledge and support it with the imparted knowledge of our teachers as well as poetry, art , and books 📚. .
.
“As animals, we walk the earth. As bearers of a divine essence, we are among the stars. As human beings, we are caught in the middle, seeking to reconcile the paradox of how to make our way upon the earth while striving for something more permanent and more profound. So many seek this greater Truth in the heavens, but it lies much closer than the clouds. It is within us and can be found by anyone on the Inward Journey. “ ~ BKS Iyengar - ‘Light on Life’. .
.
Can you find a moment of stillness today to truly experience life exactly as it is? This being, half way between the earth 🌏 and the sky 🌌, tasting, seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, loving. Allow every experience, the highs and lows to be received as teachings on our True Nature. .

✨ALIGN YO SELF✨
It’s all connected.
.
When one area is out of alignment I can feel it in the others.
.
It’s like going to a chiropractor when you need an adjustment. You’re walking around all crooked (true story) and you get adjusted and you’re like a new person.
.
Same with the mind and soul. We need to check in and get adjusted.
Through coaching, reading books that help us improve, exercise, meditation, and eating well. Just to name a few.
.
When we get into alignment with our full selves we are whole - and that’s really the idea. To feel whole and complete.
.
Do you notice the connection between mind, body, and soul?

...ร่างกาย “ฟังความคิดเรา”.......🧐............. ~ความเครียด~มีวิวัฒนาการเพื่อช่วยให้เราปลอดภัยจากการถูกทำร้ายหรือตกอยู่ในอันตราย เช่น จากสิงโตที่หิวโหย หรือหิมะถล่ม. ฮอร์โมนคอร์ติซอลและอดรีนาลีนจะถูกปล่อยเข้ากระแสเลือด ทำให้ม่านตาดำของเราขยายกว้างขึ้นเพื่อให้เรามองเห็นชัดขึ้น หัวใจและความถี่ในการหายใจของเราจะทำงานเร็วขึ้นเพื่อให้เราตอบสนองได้ไวขึ้น และเลือดที่หล่อเลี้ยงอวัยวะต่างๆ ของร่างกายก็จะถูกส่งไปยังกล้ามเนื้อมัดใหญ่เพื่อที่เราจะได้ต่อสู้หรือหลบหนีได้ดีขึ้น การตอบสนองต่อความเครียดเช่นนี้เกิดขึ้นเพียงชั่วครั้งชั่วคราวไม่บ่อยนัก แต่สำหรับหลายคนในโลกยุคปัจจุบันของเราแล้ว การตอบสนองต่อความเครียดของพวกเขาถูกกระตุ้นอยู่ตลอดเวลา. เอเปล และเอลิซาเบท แบล็กเบิร์น นักชีวิทยา ผู้ที่ได้รับรางวัลโนเบลสาขาชีววิทยาโมเลกุล ได้ศึกษาพบว่า ความเครียดที่เกิดขึ้นตลอดเวลาทำให้เทโลเมียร์(telomere) ของเราซึ่งเป็นดีเอ็นเอที่ทำหน้าที่เป็นปลอกหุ้มปลายโครโมโซม คอยปกป้องเซลล์ของเราจากการเจ็บป่วยและการแก่ชราหดสั้นลง และไม่ใช่มีแต่ความเครียดเท่านั้น แต่รูปแบบความคิดโดยทั่วไปของเราก็ส่งผลกระทบต่อเทโลเมียร์ด้วย ซึ่งนั่นสรุปได้ว่าแท้จริงแล้วเซลล์ร่างกาย “ฟังความคิดของเรา”...=เปลี่ยนความคิด-~~>ชีวิตเปลี่ยน<❤️😇 #จงมีชีวิตที่เบิกบาน #LightOnYoga #LightOnLife #mafiayoga

Day off from work today. I had plans to get an early morning run in, but caught up on needed sleep. I looked up at the sky while walking the dog this morning and thought today is also a day off from training. Despite going to work yesterday, I managed to get a good run, 90 minute workout and a late evening swim in. Today is about catching up on reading, meditation and walking around with my daughter. #plantbased #recoveryday #beautifulday #relax #meditation #reading #iyengaryoga #lightonlife

#สอนที่กรมการขนส่งทางบกวันนีเพลังงานดีๆมีไว้แบ่งปันกัน😍 จงดำรงความจดจ่อใส่ใจไว้ภายในไม่ใช่ภายนอก ไม่ต้องกังวลว่าคนอื่นๆจะเห็นอะไร หากจงใส่ใจในสิ่งที่อาตมัน ตัวตนที่แท้จริง มองเห็น อย่าหมกมุ่นอยู่กับเรื่องที่เราต้องการจะเหยียดยืดไปแค่ไหน แต่จงจดจ่อกับการเหยียดยืดอย่างถูกต้อง อย่ามุ่งไปยังจุดที่เราต้องการไป แต่ไปให้ไกลที่สุดเท่าที่เราสามารถทำได้ด้วยการยืดออกอย่างมีชีวิตชีวา💕

• A jóga integrált személyiséggé teszi az őszinte gyakorlót. Az erkölcsös élet hozzájárul a test és az elme harmónikus fejlődéséhez. Kialakítja az ember és természet, az ember és ember, illetve ember és Teremtője közötti egység érzetét, lehetővé téve ezzel annak megtapasztalását, hogy azonosak vagyunk az egész teremtést átható szellemmel. ~ B.K.S. Iyengar . 📸@_zabszem_

Thinking about yesterday’s workshop on Mind/Body Well-being, I reviewed some of Iyengar’s Light On Life - in the first pages of chapter 2 he perfectly outlines the synchronicity between breath and physical practice, making the body and the mind more open through this life cycle journey...

“Always try to extend and expand the body. Extension and expansion bring space, and space brings freedom. Freedom is precision, and precision is divine. From freedom of the body comes freedom of the mind and then the Ultimate Freedom. The #UltimateFreedom that yoga works toward can be tested in our own bodies, as each limb gains independence, flexibility, and freedom from its neighboring limbs. Certainly, stiffness and rigidity in the body is like wearing a straightjacket or living one’s life in prison.” ✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻

I read this book a few years ago and loved it. I think I gave it to someone, like I usually do with the best books! I ordered it a few days ago and it couldn't have arrived at a better time. Today was difficult, reflecting on depression, anxiety, stress and everything else that goes along with life on this planet. I'm hoping #iyengar will shed some #lightonlife #yogi #yogini #yogaeverydamnday #hathayoga #earthysoul #nyc

OMG both babes are asleep! Time for Mr Iyengar and I to have a deep conversation....well, he will be doing most of the talking! It's been 7 years since I first read this remarkable book for my 200hr yoga teacher training. A must for anyone wanting to dive deeper into their yoga journey. Thank you BKS Iyengar for all that you gave, and continue to give. .
