When time expand. Plan was to go up in 10 seconds and come down in 20 seconds. And I was so sure that was the case. But cold reality of the video timer showed I took only 5 seconds to go up and 13 to come down #handstand #handbalancing #armbalance #pikepressup #handstandpress #yoga #gymnastics #calisthenics #manasayoga

‘I did my yoga practice today!' As innocent as this statement might sound, this implies that most likely the person is referring to a mat based practice. However the philosophical context of yoga encourage students to expand their vision of yoga, beyond the mat (though not excluding the mat). For a serious yoga student, practice is continuous, and it never ends with the mat practice. And hence we cant refer to practice in the past tense, as in ‘I did my practice’. Its a process, and hence always about ‘doing’. In my case, this morning my wrist was sore. So the usual #childpose #downdog #headstand #handstand seq had to be shelved. But that doesn’t mean yoga practice is aborted.So today was to gaze at the sky, see the trees, the sea and especially at that far horizon where the sea and sky seems to be merging into each other. The effort was not only in gazing, but also inwardly checking whether any feeling of resonance emerges at the heart. First few minutes, the eyes looked, but the mind was still preoccupied with thousands of other thoughts. Later, a glimmer of a sense of connection. A subtle sense of the continuity of the observed view and the observing mind/ intellect. Similarly the sky space, the continuity of it into the space of the cabin I live in now, as well as the space within the shape of this body ( here, a deliberate yoga effort to refrain from prefixing the cabin and body with ‘my’). A humility and wonderment about the universe. And gratefulness towards life, towards awareness. And as I step off the balcony, yoga practice continues through whatever has to be engaged with. Of course this do not always happen. But that is the direction of yoga practice. So what are you doing now? How can you evolve yoga in it? Namaste! #yoga #yogaphilosophy #practice #yogapractice #sutra #manasayoga .

Bridge pose. Setu bandha sarvangasana. Setu means bridge. Sarva anga means all constituents of the body. Bandha means hold. At Manasa we interpret setubandha sarva anga as the bridge of energy/ awareness which holds together all the parts of the body. Infact one of the meaning of Asana is ‘the seat’. So the invitation is, can we take a seat on this great power which is unknown to us but which holds together and coordinates all functions of the body? This context is then expanded as the bridge between the individual and the universal; the known and unknown and so on. Of course, integrated with the psycho-philo+spiritual context is the neuro-physio-muscular context. In this aspect the shape of the pose reverses our pelvic-soinal-shoulder orientation. Normally legs are in front of pelvis {flexed hips) whereas in bridge legs are behind or beneath the pelvis ( hip extension). This lengthens the psoas. Also the lumbar spine’s extension is allowed to express well in this pose reversing the passive slouch flexion we subject it to during couch/ car sitting. In terms of Shoulders , the arms are usually in front of chest and in bridge they are taken behind. So on all counts it’s a wonderful reorienting position. To do this , What u need is couple of folded blankets and yoga blocks or some pillows/ bolsters. Lie down with head just off the blankets so that the cervical curve is protected. Lift the pelvis up and put the block or support under sacrococcegeal area. Straighten the legs so that front of pelvis is the highest point of the position. If you are very comfortable u can keep two blocks under pelvis. Hold for multiple sets of 1 mt. Eventually one long set of 3-5 mts.

At the end of class I was saying “Formless boundless space and the organisational energy/ intelligence therein manifests itself as it’s very opposite - shapes with boundaries, such as our body; which if we look deep into , say through a microscope will reveal itself as space , through layers of tissue, cells, molecules, atoms etc. Similarly if u watch , the mind space projects itself as names, forms and feelings. Normally these formations are so strong and luring that that we can’t sense anything more to it. But right now, at the end of this 1 hr practice , with your gathered attention , sense the energy impulses behind the movements of this mind space -as the continually forming verbal narratives and visual forms ... “ and then, I said as I usually say, “if u wish to sit, sit with this awareness for a while and then gently lie down to shavasama”. Normally most people plop down to mat instantly. But today the 7.30 am class, all of them sat for quite some time. That was beautiful. Thank you class 😊🤗🙏🏻 #yoga #yogaclass #yogapractise #yogaphilosophy #mindfulness #yogateacher #meditation #manasayoga

I understand that Handstand focussed classes as well as classes involving various swipes/ stick twirl etc are not everyone’s favourite cup of tea. So letting u know when they will be at Manasa. Yes, choose which practice helps u best at this point of time and be regular 💪🏼 Handstand themed classes in July - on Thursdays 11 th and 25 th . On 4 th and 18 th we will do back bends. Movements involving swipes and stick- on Tuesdays 9 th and 23 rd #handstand #handstandpractice #armbalance #movement #yoga #manasayoga

‘Warrior 2 pose? ‘ It’s yoga. ‘Half moon pose? ‘ Of course it’s yoga. ‘How about inverted split? ‘That’s only urdhva prasarita ekapadasana. Totally yoga. ‘Then how about we do everything together’? Huh, that’s cartwheel. That’s cheerleading or gymnastics. Definitely not yoga. These kind of superficial splitting and labelling (bheda buddhi) let’s reduce. It’s the same body. Same energy which expresses. Let’s connect to the essence (shakti madhye mana) #yoga #yogainspiration #cartwheel #gymnastics #calisthenics #yogapose #manasayoga

While I was going through my paces one person walked up to me and asked whether he can try out my paralletes. He said he used to do handstands but long time back. I though ‘yea right’. And then he cranked out almost 2 stalder presses. Turns out he is a gymnastics coach who even trains national team members. Was awesome to listen to him and he also showed some front lever training. @ricardojrotero looking forward to another session with you #handstand #bodyweightworkout #yoga #manasayoga #gymnastics #gymnasticsmalaysia #calisthenics #frontlever #stalderpress
