I teach others that living is yoga. To make all acts sacred, all beautiful in and of itself, even fear or panic, spaces you pass through, with conscious awareness as you move through, this is the yoga of living. Being in the moment and having a perspective in your foundation that truly everything is for your growth and upliftment. Knowing truly you are not given what you can not handle. Being able to find this place within through the panorama of life. This is my high goal, the goal of Raja Yoga, to be present in all acts. Living this truth is empowering.
I share kinesthetic experiences so it is easier to be in the moment. Joy, clarity, relaxation, focus all are important to live life fully and come from grounding and aligning all parts of yourself into one unit. To be fully in your body, in this sensory mode where you notice the nuances of color, texture, sound, wind, other peoples energy, all your senses, brings you present. You more often can get lost to time, not in a reckless way but in a way of enjoyment that is good for you. I have spent a lot of my life trying to focus this sensing into a more mechanical, ordered trait. It won’t fit there. It is of its own accord because it comes from sensory, feeling nature, creative, flowing. It is a gift, not hindrance as I was taught.
When I finally gave this its due honor, allowing this sense to develop and be used as the gift of being in my body, mind, riding the emotions and embracing my spirit, it brought me towards a flowing existence. The senses bring us alert in our bodies. From here we can use all faculties to surf the world, not just the mind, we can engage our multidimensional nature. If you are only in the mind you cannot access all the senses correctly. Blending the body messages with the mind perspective are the yoga balance we seek. It also offers an opening to our 6th sense. Blending the many perspectives of ourselves opens the empathetic gift, feeling the connectedness we truly have to others.
That is what I have discovered through doing the physical, Tia Chi, dancing, yoga, honoring my body through gentle organic movement has tapped me into an energy source I didn’t know before. As I developed my honor and connection to my body by being in it fully, it has much to tell me about the world in a subtle way that I could miss being caught in the chatter and noise of the mind. These flowing movements put me in a relaxed flowing state. My body remembers how it feels to move in rhythm and calm energy. Good practice for this our hectic lives.
Additionally, meditating on a place of fullness, filled and flowing with connection to this universal energy force allows the safety to perceive the world as safe and expanding . We are always able to pass through. Life becomes the yoga of experiencing it without judgment and flowing through it. Seeing this way brings in joy. This practice of calling in fullness, connection to the one that we are all part of, helps train the body to experience life in fullness. Creating great new ways to live and move in the world.
The Eastern arts, both healing and expressive, inspire us because of the pace, present awareness they teach us. To live as you move like a dance of poses knowing all have their place in the flow of change is the art. Finding a blessing in having a body, honoring it and its nuances as your ally, aligning our tools, mental, emotional, physical with our spirit at the helm. This is the yoga of living! This is the gift I share in teaching. It allows you to calm down, relax, get into oxytocin and Joyful living is the natural outcome. Like Magic!
I invite you to give yourself this gift. I am only a consult away! May we walk forward with the goal to make life art, to live in joy, play with it and make living a yoga of expressing your true spirit.
