The #manasayoga #philosophy is summed up in 3 terms, each one of which has its own expansions: Atha- grounding the mind into the present moment, by grounding into that which is always in the present moment- our bodies. Tanu- thinning the mind of its excess baggage (stories of past and future, expectations of present moment, etc). Vidya- the teaching, the context which the teacher has in which the entire asana practice unfolds. These are wisdom teachings passed down from generations of gurus from my Guruji to me and me to my students. I teach with pure hope that my students can connect to my authenticity and eventually find theirs. 💞🙏🏽 #manasayogawithAnuja #yogaeverydamnday

People often ask me, "How do you get so flexible/strong?" The answer to that - dirgakala (long term), nairantarya (uninterrupted), satkara (with respect), aasevitah (in service of). To get "good" at anything - set a goal, study/practice it (a lot) and respect the process. Know where you're going and go get it! . . #gomukhasana #bind #dolphinpose #dolphinposevariation #yogaeverydamnday #manasayoga

One of many relaxed forward bends taught at @manasayoga. The chair helps to keep the upper body lengthened, which is something most people with lack of hamstring flexibility tend to lose in their quest to get their hands to the ground. Start from the ground, get the alignment right, then stay and savour how it makes you feel. Step on blocks to go deeper while maintaining upper body length.

As it is past midnight and most of us are nestled home ready for bed (if not already), are you still holding on to traumas which happened earlier today? Maybe a grudge? Do you find your jaws clenching, your shoulders tight and your breathing shallow? In Sanskrit there is a word, Tanu, which simply means "to thin". Take some moments to close your eyes, be still and focus on thinning out unwholesome emotions and thoughts that you've been carrying. With every exhalation, let anger, dislikes, unnecessary thoughts go. With every inhale, suggest peace, love and courage.

@kaimal.manoj taught at the #manasayoga “Myths of the #Asana” workshop that there is a saying that goes: “May I have the same forbearance as the tree I practice under.” My reflection for the year ahead. #danyogafit #fitand40 #yogi #yoga #mensyoga #yogadudes #yogaeverydamnday #yogajunkie #yogafun #yogagram #yogalove #yogamalaysia #yogafam #igyoga #twitter #instagood #picoftheday

manasayoga. Thaipusam 
Today is thaipusam. Translated it means ‘mother’s gracce’.

Thaipusam Today is thaipusam. Translated it means ‘mother’s gracce’. Yoga philosophy teaches that we all have three mothers. One is the great unmanifest singular energy of the universe (parashakti), which, of its own volition fractalizes its oneness into apparent manyness of the manifest universe. This power of spitting and differentiation is called maya Shakti, who is the mother of the manifest universe where everything seems separated. And then of course, our biological mother. Today, may the grace of all three mothers flow onto us. The posture shown here, the peacock, is the vehicle of the great force who has many names- shanmukha, Subramanian, sharavanabhava, murugan etc.. The peacock was originally a demon (surapadman), who did countless misdeeds. Subramanian defeats him in battle (only after he receives the grace of his great mother, embodied as the gift of vel, his weapon). The demon do not die, but changes shape into this beautiful peacock, which then Subramanian uses as his vehicle. In our yoga tradition, we see the demon as the underlying ignorant patterns within us. Which has made us do many foolish, ignorant and arrogant stuff which has hurt us as well as others. Instead of closing eyes to them, by the practice of yoga, may the eyes of awareness open at all of them (indicated by the eyes of the feather of peacock tail). Through those eyes, may through grace of the universe, may we forgive ourselves and others. And may all of that transform into the beautiful tail (tail refers to our past) of the peacock. And may we ride skilfully on top of it. Happy Thaipusam to all! . . . . . . . . . #yogaeveryday #handstand #manasayoga #manasarocks #manasaaddicts #calisthenics #mayurasana #thaipusam #peacockpose #inversionjunkie #gurumanoj

I had been indulging in thoughts of introducing stick practices in the studio for a while. The stick twirls are great for mobilizing the wrist, strengthening the forearm muscles, improve the range of rotations at the shoulder joint, great for concentration, and of course it’s kinda cool to do. So today it was such a great surprise to see around 20 bamboo sticks in a bag at the studio. I am so touched by the generosity of the student who brought them (Yap). And I could not resist but immediately grab two of them and try the two stick twirls. I haven’t did this even once in the last 25 years. So I am mighty pleased and amazed at the body’s amazing motor memory skills. March 2nd and 3rd, I am going to lead a ‘basics’ workshop and on 9th and 10th an ‘intermediate’ workshop. Details will be announced soon. I will definitely introduce some stick practices at the workshop. So yogis, something new is brewing for 2019. #yoga #skills #workout #training #bodyweighttraining #calisthenics #handstand #yoga #yogainspiration #manasayoga

Monday skill unlocked. It’s been an unexpected start of the new year for me. As life always is. It’s been a good whole month since I’ve been out from mat practice, gym and training. So discovering that I can suddenly perform this move got me smiling silly. Even with my own determination, I wouldn’t have been able to do this on my own. Always thankful to my guruji , who has been patiently guiding me since 2014. There is still soo much too learn. #babysteps #yoga #manasayoga #imwiththeexperts

Due to a shoulder injury I couldn’t raise arms even for the last six days, let alone a handstand. But thanks to my Doctor (Dr Rajesh Singh), could load it this morning. Nothing fancy. Just the 5 entries I regularly use to enter handstand. For today, no goal making for 2019. Just happy to do this much. #handstand #handstandpractice #handstand2019 #inversion #balance #calisthenics #gymnastics #strengthtraining #yoga #manasayoga #presshandstand #straddlepress

Time in yoga (tantric view) is a flow of creative (srsti) and absorptive (samhara) pulsations. Which we experience as the continual emergences and submergences of urges, thoughts, desires, inhalation/ exhalation and physical events. Most of the time we cant help but be whatever emerges. So irritation forms we are helplessly irritated. Doubt arises and we are then doubtful. Of course there are times (those rare times) benevolence forms, equanimity forms, and then we are that. One of the invitations of back bend practices is to partake in the creative power of the moment (because we are not separate from the moment), and actively create/ invoke radiant heart qualities, which yoga typically points out to empathy (sahrdaya), goodwill (mudita), compassion (karuna ), courage (dhairya), zealousness (utsaha), gratefulness (krtajna) etc. So yogis, intend all these qualities, embody it through some heart openers, and share that shine with the world. https://manasa-yoga.com/classes-schedules/ #yoga #yogainspiration #backbend #flexibilitytraining #philosophy #time #manasayoga

There is a structure to our body. And then the function via cells, tissues, organs and systems. In yoga our premise is that all these functions are correlated. The firing of the neural networks not only brings up thoughts, but also result in hormonal responses via the endocrine system as well as muscular/ fascial responses via the sympathetic/ parasympathetic nervous system. The inter dependence of body patterns and mind patterns is something very important for the yoga asana practitioner to consider. Learning and receiving of insights is dependent on mind states, and mind states are dependent on body states. This applies the other way too. What is interesting for the asana practitioner is that the body state can be altered through a shape shift, which then can go on to alter mind states, making it conducive to receive wisdom. Paschimottanasana holds a special position in this regard. Paschima denotes west or back of the body. The premise is that whatever we are holding on of the past embodies as muscular/ fascial clenching patterns on our back. And working on paschimottanasana, consciously feeling the resistance along the back line of the body, giving it loving awareness, and with each exhalation mentally affirming ‘ I am releasing all unwholesome patterns’ can help a long way in cleansing ourselves (along with happier hamstrings, gastrocnemius, quadratus lumborum to name a few) to receive the New Year in all freshness. In this context today morning, urging you al to work a bit on opening up the hamstrings as well as lower and upper back 😊 #yoga #manasayoga #manasaaddicts #yogainspiration #yogaphilosophy #mindbodysoul #flexibility #flexibilitytraining #pike #stretching #hamstrings
