Sensations

By Miranda Aponte Have you ever welcomed sensation to your body? This is the way Kate starts class in her Dantayama Restorative Yoga class. We welcome sensations as she guides us through each part of the body. “Welcome sensations to the left eye, the left eyebrow, the cheek, now to the right eye, eyebrow, and cheek.” What does welcoming sensations mean, you ask? It means allowing and accepting the way your body feels in that very moment, connecting with it and not trying to adjust or fix. We spend so much of our day disconnected from our body and using it as a tool to get from point A to … Read More

The Yoga of You

The Yoga of You

Submitted by Megan Doyle Corcoran Over the millennia since Patanjali, yoga has been variously used to become supernatural and super strange. For a decent amount of time in the middle ages, it gave itself over to fancies of the flesh— that is, to challenging the body with extreme sensuality or pain in order to commune authentically with the base instincts of life. At some point, the classical yoga abridged by Patanjali would have been a tame and esoteric excuse for a spirit quest. Without mortification and extreme renunciation of all things fairly normal—like, say, not hanging oneself by the skin— it would have been argued, the spirit has no chance … Read More

 

Work-Life Integration

Work-Life Integration

Submitted by Andrea Alfonsi Work-Life Balance implies that there is some state of homeostasis in which all aspects of our lives are in perfect harmony.  This rarely happens!  In the words of world-renowned yoga teacher, Aadil Palkhivala, “The moment our attention ceases and we congratulate ourselves for being balanced upright, we have already begun to fall over…Achieving and maintaining balance are the path, not the destination.”  Consider instead that the destination is Integration, a state where there is dynamic flow between our core values and our daily commitments, and, our time spent on each of these. Take a moment now, and think about your core values – for each of … Read More

 

Why Slow Yoga?

07 Sep 2014

Submitted by Megan Doyle Corcoran Ten years ago, I traveled to India to study with my teacher, Pattabhi Jois. Until then, I’d seen him only at conferences, in the small spaces between bodies who packed halls to contort at his direction. I wanted more. I was 29, bendy, ambitious and anxious to learn. I arrived in Mysore and enrolled at his shala the same day. I left with the unwelcome instructions to appear an hour before dawn the next day. Jetlag, I told myself, was a mental construct. Ashtanga yoga, I decided, would fix it. At 5:15 or some dark hour, I unrolled my mat in the place that PJ … Read More

How did you find your way to the mat…?

How did you find your way to the mat…?

Submitted by Kate Danta For most of us, long before we became knowledgeable about the many aspects of yoga, somewhere along the way we either knew someone who practiced or saw a glimpse of someone in a pose in either a magazine, book or television. Back in the early days, at least for me, 35 years ago, back when finding a yoga studio was almost like discovering an unnamed planet, you suddenly had a sense of what it must have been like for Magellan to discover the passage way between the Pacific and Atlantic ocean, known today as the Straights of Magellan. Contrary to “practically a yoga studio on every … Read More
