Last week, mid-class I quietly cried tears…aahh so much profound beauty in the teacher’s quoted words. This week I had an ECM (Expanded Consciousness Moment) = amazing… I mean, this is the Yoga experience that Yoga is renowned for, what we hear and read about. I have been truly leaving each class with a new sense and level of learning.
There are Yin and Yang dominant cycles in life. Only a little while back a very physical, dynamic Yoga was what resonated for me. Then quite suddenly I felt the need to pull back from that. For now I’m so thankful for the experience of a great teacher and what Yin Yoga is teaching me right now. The raw simplicity and back-to-basic approach is what I’m loving. I’m bare-facing my own self imposed limitations, without anywhere to hide. Yin Yoga is yielding, feminine, spacious and kind Yoga.
And we need more Yin in this world.
Everyone’s favourite, Shivasana, brings us to the end of the class and Kat quotes from Rumi – ‘Close both eyes to see with the other eye’ which is amazing and the perfect nudge off the edge and into a meditational abyss.
“As an ever-learning student and practitioner of Ayurveda and Aromatherapy I’m learning a deeper understanding and balancing of the microcosm (our body) within the macrocosm (the universe) – it’s a beautifully fascinating Science of Life.”
