||My five day a week practice
consists of pranayama, followed by an Anusara inspired practice of opening myself to grace and exploring my freedoms and edges.
||I’m currently reading Tantric Quest by Daniel Odier. Additionally, I’ve been studying various translations of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
I regularly refer to Iyengar’s “Light
on Yoga” and “Light on Pranayama”;
Devereaux’s “Elements of Yoga”
and “Hatha Yoga Breath By Breath”;
Schiffmann’s “The Art of Moving
Into Stillness”; Friend’s “Anusara
Teachers Training Manual”; Swenson’s
“Ashtanga Yoga the Practice Manual”;
Feurstein’s “The Yoga Tradition”.
||I teach via the Dynamic yoga method. A step by step progression through increasingly challenging postures, synchronized with breath, with an emphasis on spiralic adjustments and an inward focus. Props are rarely recommended aside from a cushion for pranayama and
meditation. All classes end with a meditation.
After we have shaken up the samskara through the postures we need to sit with them so they can be resolved.
|I believe that to be considered a yoga class rather than a stretch class or an acrobatics class we need to pay at least a little attention to Patanjali.
I take care to pass on a word or two of his wisdom as I teach.
