“As one removes the shoes and sandles at the entrance, ...leave our egos also there. As one removes the headgear, ...remove unwanted and mixed thoughts away from our minds and brains. One has to empty one’s brain to learn...You are made to know the faults and weaknesses in your practice and taught to rectify these so that self-study sets in to go towards self-realization. Learning is an art as teaching is an art. But learning is a hundred times superior to the art of teaching. A pupil is expected to be like Nachiketa who went to the Lord of Death (Yama) for spiritual guidance. One has to die to gain knowledge. We have to keep aside our egos and personalities to be reduced to ashes to reach the soul. Total surrender to practice is a must.” —Geetaji __ Grateful to be studying with my teacher, Manouso, twice this month: Each time the practice of seeking the state of stillness and silence is renewed, deepened, strengthened. He is a trustworthy source, a teacher who challenges limitations, to show students ways toward freedom. Manouso jokes he has the gift (or power “siddhi”) of being able to piss almost anybody off. To teach yoga (“citta vrtti nirodha”- stilling of the fluctuations of the consciousness, defined In Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtras) or find yoga, one has to be willing to look beyond the entrapment of the small self. To neglect to correct a student who is going wrong is worse than (intentionally or unintentionally) offending them. We need to be willing to pay attention to everything (experiences, beliefs/prejudices, both sides of the knee) to let go into unity. Manouso asks, “what are you willing to look at and what are you not?” _ Vrśchikāsana: “The head which is seat of knowledge and power is also the seat of pride, anger, hatred, jealousy, intolerance and malice. These emotions are more deadly than the poison which the scorpion carries in its sting. The yogi, by stamping on his head with his feet, attempts to eradicate these self-destroying emotions and passions. By kicking his head he seeks to develop humility, calmness, and tolerance and thus to be free of ego. The subjugation of the ego leads to harmony and happiness.” Iyengar, Light on Yoga.

Timeless teachings from my guru. Yoga is so much more than backbends and handstands. ... Honouring my source teacher on his 130th birthday. His son Desikachar would say, "he lived 100 useful years".

SLOW DOWN 🦋 *anzeige What a wonderful Yoga Event with beautiful soul @annikaisterling and @ritualscosmetics 🙏🏽 . We are all surrounded by cycles and influences. Have you ever heard about doshas? Ayurveda describes how to live a healthy long life and comes with three doshas: . Kapha (element: earth, water) Pitta (element: fire) Vada (element: water) . These three types have their own characteristics and all of us have them more or less inside our bodies. The three doshas can also be find in our seasons and within our daily 24h. My dosha is 60% Pitta and 40% Vada. What is yours? There is a 2min Test waiting for you in my story to find out and to read more about the characteristics 🤩 #theritualofayurveda #ritualscosmetics #anzeige

✨L I N E A G E✨ "In response to the ever-growing number of reports of sexual misconduct and abuse in the yoga world, a number of North American practitioners and teachers have started what they are calling a “post-lineage” movement. . While I can understand wanting to have nothing to do with teachers who have abused their students, I believe it’s important to recognize that without lineage, we lose the connection to the source of the teachings. . A connection to a real lineage (one that is older than a single generation) offers us a foundation on which we can develop an approach that is rooted in the wisdom of the ancient tradition but alive and responsive to our modern needs." .

The ancient wisdom tradition of India offers a useful model of the human being in the panchamaya koshas, the five layers. . The outermost layer is our physical body, made from the food we eat. . More subtle is the energy layer which we can engage with through breathwork and movement. . More subtle is the mental layer where we process sensory and experiential experience. . Even more subtle is the wisdom layer, from which we can observe the working of the mind from a detached perspective and practice discernment. . Our innermost layer is the abode of the soul where we experience undisturbed peace and contentment. . The classical approach of yoga — asana, pranayama, meditation — is a path to the heart and soul, leading us through the layers of our being to discover that ever present truth of our being. .

O grande sábio Guru Arjan diz no Japji: "Por que nos preocupamos? Quando o flamingo parte, Deus cuida de sua prole." A nossa falta desse instinto básico de confiança interrompe o fluxo de energia para os centros superiores ou chakras.

My mat is my canvas and yoga is my art. . . . I’ve been having some artistic urges lately. Typically I would sit down to draw or paint, but unfortunately I haven’t had much time to do that. So I’m trying to expand my idea of what art and creativity mean to me. I love that art can be used to describe so many different things: singing, dancing, acting, sculpting, painting, movement, drawing, performances, comedy, photography, film making, making jewelry, cooking, etc... Just like in yoga the thing you are doing is less important than how you are doing it. Yoga is said to be the art of living a meaningful, conscious, intentional life. #liveartfully my friends . . . .

🇩🇪Leichtfüßig durch den Tag tanzen kann ich auf jeden Fall, wenn ich gleich am Morgen Yoga übe. Heute habe ich mit #Natarajasana #Tänzer) mein Gleichgewicht geschult. Das hilft mir in #Balance zu bleiben, auch wenn es mal hektisch wird. Währen der Asana habe ich das Gefühl, total zentriert und zielgerichtet zu sein. Die #KunstdesYoga besteht nun darin, diese Qualitäten mit in den Alltag zu nehmen. Die Matte ist der erste Schritt, der zweite führt ins Leben. 🇺🇸I can totally dance through the day twinkle-toed when I start out with my Yoga practice. Today I practiced Natarajasana #dancer) and trained my outer and INNER balance. That helps a lot with two little energy balls around. While being on the mat I‘m completely centered and focused. The #artofyoga is to implement these qualities in my daily life. The mat is my first step, the second one is the ‚real‘ life. #yoga #yogaeverywhere #yogaeveryday #yogini #breathing #atmen #breath #asana #pranayama #bewusstsein #conciousness #yogamom #yogamind #yogachallange #energy #energyflow #relax #relaxing #inspiration #yogainspiration #inneresgleichgewicht #countyourblessings #grateful #dankbar

Yoga - conscious living is an exercise form that originated in India. It's funny how Indian culture has a ton of great discoveries that have gone unnoticed until a westerner has come across them and broadcasted its importance. Why do we consider the west to always be better? A fun fact - Since Mukesh Ambani's move of giving free internet with Jio to the mass Indian population, the most searched topics on the internet are Bollywood and Porn. #india #indianculture #indians #bollywood #mukeshambani #yoga #western #exercise #innovative #technique #yogi #artofyoga #lifestyleblog #pursuitofbeauty #knowmore #bemore #learnmore #seemore #grow #learn #discover #statistics #Jiomobile

Patanjali lays out a 3-step process of meditation. 1️⃣Concentrate on an object of your choosing. 2️⃣A connection happens where you receive knowledge of the object. 3️⃣Eventually you merge with the object and rest as pure consciousness, the seer. . Try it with music, a flower, a candle flame, a mountain, a tree, your lover.

A propósito da aula que vou dar no Domingo dia 18 de Novembro às 10h no #lisbonyogafestival , aqui fica a descrição da aula...vemo-nos lá!!🙏💟 "Quando construímos uma casa, começamos pela base ou fundações. Da mesma forma todas as posturas no Yoga são construídas a partir de uma base. Nesta aula iremos focar-nos nesses pontos que servem de base às posturas e passo a passo vamos construir a postura, entrar, permanecer, sentir e sair da mesma.  Para além dessa especificidade que é importante para se praticar com consciência, iremos praticar de uma forma sequencial, tal como o Mestre B.K.S.Iyengar nos ensinou. Primeiro a mente observa, depois o corpo começa a fortalecer-se em todas as suas camadas e de uma forma clara, atenta e feliz conseguiremos integrar e absorver todos os benefícios da prática de Yoga".
