Eka Pada Koundinasana 1 became a possibility for me today after I learned the #stability of compacting the hips and resisting the back groin in many attempts of #parivrrtaparsvakonasana. We explored 2 hours of deep twists to prepare for arm balancings, wow - so much was learned, awakened inside from Patricia’s sequence. 💙 I’m so grateful to experience such intelligent, direct, pure instruction. 💫 #iyengarmethod #bksiyengaryoga #organization #stepbystep #patriciawalden

“All this petty worry while the great cloak of the sky grows dark and intense round every living thing. What is precious inside us does not care to be known by the mind in ways that diminish its presence. What we strive for in perfection is not what turns us into the lit angel we desire. What disturbs and then nourishes has everything we need. What we hate in ourselves is what we cannot know in ourselves but what is true to the pattern does not need to be explained. Inside everyone is a great shout of joy waiting to be born. All those years listening to those who had nothing to say. All those years forgetting how everything has its own voice to make itself heard. All those years forgetting how easily you can belong to everything simply by listening. And the slow difficulty of remembering how everything is born from an opposite and miraculous otherness. We speak only with the voices of those we can hear ourselves and the body has a voice only for that portion of the body of the world it has learned to perceive. “ excerpts from the poem, The Winter of Listening by David Whyte .

‘the breath is the means to go deeper, beyond the skin...’ 💫 ‘the teacher must be relentless, tenacious, so that the students can find their tenacity, and find what it is for them to move forward...’ 💫 ‘to merge the #intelligence of the brain with the intelligence of the #heart...’ 💫 ‘Overextending is violence’ (referring to someone’s knee who was demoing Parivrtta Trikonasana- don’t press the knee back, pull the knee up, firm, compact...) 💫 ‘Observe- then act’ 💫 ‘Ask yourself, what motivates me to practice? What do I want to teach, to be taught? Are the reasons I practice now different from when I started, what are those reasons..? How has practice shifted what I am attached to, how I relate to prakriti...?’ Day one of a week with a Patricia Walden and already I am transformed... so many brilliant seamless moments. Ah to be in the presence of a masterful, humble, devoted #teacher. So special! Beautiful, brilliant sequence today, so many twists. 🌀 Here: Ardha Matsyendrasana II (See plate 330 in #lightonyoga ... I can’t yet clasp my shin!)

I have been called for years to share my yoga practice with people. I began practicing yoga in 2011 when my life hit rock bottom in many ways. Yoga gave me a real refuge and has been a HUGE part of my life since. The time has come for me to share this passion with others and I'm doing so by working through two powerful instructional texts on yoga and deepening my practice as I teach and share with others. I hope you will follow along on my journey and will reap value from what I have to share! Namaste! 💗😍🙏. . . . . . #yoga #lightonyoga #bksiyengaryoga #journeytopower #baptiste #yogisofinstagram #namaste #loveandlight

Studying yoga together, with @soniadovedy - it was a really nice class. We learned a lot and worked our bodies hard. #iyengaryoga #bksiyengar #bksiyengaryoga #practiceandalliscoming #gratitude #urdhvahastasana
