“How we feel during the action is the quality of the action.” Tirumalai Krishnamacharya
I once heard the analogy that a stagnant body is like a pond. Without movement, our bodies build up impurities and waste that can be detrimental to our immune system, and leave us feeling fogged and sluggish. Muscles, bones, tissues, and organs require a well-balanced movement practice of any type [read: doesn’t have to be asana] that one can continue to perform consistently.
I also believe movement is one of the many vessels that help us realize our purpose and passions in life. When we move better, we feel better. Finding a practice that resonates with you can leave you feeling energized, motivated, less anxious, and ready to take on whatever comes your way.
As a yoga teacher and practitioner, this space is growing with content surrounding asana. My Asana Library is updated regularly, containing step-by-step guides on navigating through yoga poses. It’s important to note here, that every body is different and how we approach shapes will differ from person to person. My guides are not cookie-cutter. If a cue does not feel right in your body, expand on that feeling and explore different options. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions on a specific pose. We may be able to explore it together!
I would love to practice with you, too! I offer both in-person and online classes in an effort to meet you where you are. Take a peek at Practice with Me if you’d like to connect in some fashion. I do this for you. I’m here for you.
Lastly, please understand that asana is only one limb in yoga. Movement and breath is extremely important, but it’s the entirety of yoga that drives the inquiry and growth of inner wisdom. If you are interested in practicing true yoga, expand your learning to include other teachings. Beginners can head to Off the Mat for more information.
