“The asana is an enquiry: ”Who am I?”
Throwing out the parts until only the Self is left,
the final pose is “I am.””
Look at last Monday’s post to see how Mr. Iyengar has whittled away the non-Self.
As a teacher, I’m privileged to watch students deepen their sense of Self regularly. You’re welcome to do the same in any of my classes (listed over there on the right).
My journey began on the bottom right branch at the Himalayan Institute.
Most of my training is from further up the right side of the tree:
the Iyengar limb
of the Krishnamacharya branch.
You can visit my tiny twig on the tree in any of the classes listed in the Upcoming Events & Ongoing Classes section on the right side of the page.
And in Iyengar yoga, you can take comfort in knowing that a bolster will solve it all.
Thanks to Yoga Dork for the wonderful post!
You’ll get to play with lots of props in my classes. The schedule is in the Upcoming Events and Ongoing Classes box on the right of your screen.
We can spend a LOT of time dissecting poses.
Dissection helps create awareness,
helps us understand what we’re directing.
But we need to bring the cadaver to life:
allow for the “single, harmonious whole”
You’re welcome to join the opportunities to expand your yoga in any of my classes. The schedule is on the right, in the Upcoming Events and Ongoing Classes box.
Theresa is the beautiful Iyengar teacher who trained me to teach yoga.
Please donate to the fund that will expand her cancer treatment options as you’re able, and share if you’re so minded.
You’ll find my yoga class schedule over there on the right, at the end of the Upcoming Events and On-Going Classes list.
