Repost from @ashtanga_yoga_center using @RepostRegramApp - THE MARRIAGE OF SHIVA AND SHAKTI–FINDING HARMONY IN DUALITY

Taught by Tim Miller
SATURDAY | MARCH 3, 2018 | 4:00-6:00 PM
The practice of Yoga offers us an extremely concentrated experience of duality, and the opportunity to find balance between opposing, yet complimentary forces. Asana and Pranayama are collectively referred to as Hatha Yoga – literally “the union of the Sun and the Moon” – the Sun representing the active, masculine force and the Moon symbolizing the passive, feminine quality. Throughout the practice of Hatha Yoga, we encounter constant duality – the inhale and the exhale, extension and flexion, right side and left side, mind and body, effort and surrender, etc. Throughout all of the changing circumstances we encounter during practice, we are challenged to be stable yet comfortable and exercise intelligent effort coupled with appropriate surrender. Patanjali, author of the Yoga Sutras, suggests that if we are able to cultivate these skills, “Tatah dvanda anabhighathah” – then we are no longer disturbed by duality. In this class we will explore the myriad manifestations of duality that the practice of Asana and Pranayama provide for us and learn how we can begin to harmonize these forces to create balance. Central to this process is the conscious use of breath to link body and mind, facilitate more stability and receptivity and move with greater ease and intelligence. We will explore the notion of “Reciprocal Inhibition” – the complimentary actions of opposing muscles to provide both greater strength and flexibility and the importance of the interplay of pose/counterpose. In addition, we will learn the practical application of Mula Bandha and Uddhiyana Bandha to develop both Roots and Wings in our Asana and Pranayama practice.

Day 10 of #TheYinYangYogis is #savasana or “corpse pose.” The bolster underneath my legs can be replaced with any blanket or blanket on blocks or anything resembling a block. This will give you a super fulfilling rest.

Namaste🙏🏼 This fall 🍁🍂, join us #TheYinYangYogis to balance our yoga practice with yin and yang asana that will keep our mind and spirit aligned with our body through yoga poses.

Day 10 of #TheYinYangYogis is #ekapadarajakapotasana or “one-foot-royal-pigeon-pose.” A very advanced pose actually. If you’re bendy no problem, just make sure you are actually pressing down into your legs, which helps the inner thighs to engage and leads to the belly lifting. This will protect your low back. Otherwise you will be working on opening your chest and shoulders for a while;) This fall 🍁🍂, join us #TheYinYangYogis to balance our yoga practice with yin and yang asana that will keep our mind and spirit aligned with our body through yoga poses.

Day 9 of #TheYinYangYogis is #savakapotasana or #deadpigeon a.k.a. #sleepingpigeon a.k.a. #sleepingswan
As a yin pose you want to allow gravity to work for as much as possible, so if your hip does not comfortably release towards the floor stick something under your bent-leg hip to rest on and stay for at least 5 minutes.

Day 7 of #TheYinYangYogis is #suptahastapadangustasana not necessarily a yin pose, but at least less active than the standing version.

Keep the bottom foot on the floor. Lift your body to the leg, not just pulling leg to body.

Day 5 of #TheYinYangYogis is #anandabalasana or #happybaby. Ananda means “bliss.” Flex the feet, trying to keep the sacrum flat while tucking the chin to elongate the neck.
