The freedom of the body

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]There is a way of doing Asana without the slightest effort. Movement and alignment are like an expressive song that arises from the body. The freedom from tension in the upper body (the head, neck, arms, shoulders, and torso) that is produced by the acceptance and release into gravity through the lower part of the body: through grounding (legs, hips, knees, and feet) is the origin of lightness and presence, This expressive freedom is connected to the breath like the waves to the ocean. Yoga is not a restrictive alignment or control of the body. Yoga must bring freedom to the body-mind. Not the freedom of indulging but the freedom that comes from the internal balance of clear intention, right order and listening with precise and...

Anapnoe Yoga Lifestyle is a Path

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Yoga Lifestyle is a path, a journey towards Self realization. It is living the truth with every breath. On and off the mat, even in sleep. Then, ‘all life is yoga. It starts with that deep aspiration of becoming whole, letting go, surrendering, wanting to under-stand the ever repeating wheel of your own life, and finding your life purpose.. Sometimes it starts when you get to a juncture, when you feel you have suffered enough. It starts when the questions are too deep, too many and you cant answer them with your mind. Some of us start to practice yoga or go to a Yoga Retreat. When you enter into this Yoga Lifestyle path you want to know yourself: When yoga comes with you off the...

Chakrasana: beyond the physical body

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Advance your Yoga practice by moving beyond the physical body Chakrasana or Urdva Dhanurasana I love this asana as it opens us to vulnerability and ultimately to freedom, to open up to life. It opens my heart when i feel it closed. It gives me space to love. It brings me directly into the heart space. It stimulates all 5 Prana Vayus. Chakrasana benefits the physiology and psicology of your body-mind, In Sanskrit Chakra means wheel, and so we call it wheel pose: Chakrasana or Urdva Danhurasana which means extended bow pose. As it is a deep backbend and deep heart opener we say that it opens the heart chakra but actually it is an integrating pose that stimulates all these energetic vortexes called chakras equally. Chakrasana strongly engages...

Gaze into the heart of your practice: Drishti

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Advance your Yoga practice by incorporating Drishti There are nine drishti, or gazes in the Ashtanga yoga tradition. Each one corresponds to a specific point of focus. By incorporation the drishti into your yoga practice you will deepen your awareness and connection with the Divine. Drishti is a Sanskrit word that means 'gaze' and is closely connected to Dharana and Dhyana, the 6th and 7th limbs of The Eight Limbs Yoga. In Dharana, we work with cultivating a single point of concentration in preparation for meditation (Dhyana). In yoga practice, drishti or placing our gaze into a specific point helps us, physically to find balance and stability. Mentally helps us focus and steady the mind and turn our awareness inwards, towards the internal movements, while finding the external...

Grounding Irana Ji An www.anapnoeyoga.com

Grounding: get Grounded and down to Earth

When we talk about grounding we are saying that one has their feet on the ground we mean that the person is in touch with reality, aware and in the present moment, with a developed common sense and not lost in space, past regrets or anxiety about the future. Being grounded means to be relaxed, in touch with our truth, inherent wisdom and knowing. Feeling good in your own skin. On the mat grounding implies having a good foundation: having your feet relaxed, your legs strong but not tense, under-standing to rise, letting go tension and being able to integrate strength, steadiness, ease, focus and presence in the practice. A person that can feel his feet on the ground and the contact with the earth can...
