Episode 139// Alive in the City of Jewels

April 14th, 2015

Beloveds,

SO happy to be here together. Thank you (always & forever) for sharing your practice. This episode features a 75 minute class I taught as part of Happy Mindful People's Chakra-Balancing Series. This class focuses on the Manipura Chakra. It is a little spicy! I hope you enjoy it.

A little about Chakras

Chakras (ch sounds like the ch in cherry, not sh) are part of the subtle body anatomy. Chakra means wheel in Sanskrit and refers to energy wheels or vortexes in the body along the length of the spine or central channel (sushumna in Sanskrit). The idea is that when the chakras are spinning like they ought to, we are flowing in all aspects, the central channel is clear and we may experience the serpent of kundalini rising up that channel. (See, this is the super- nutshell version.  For a more thorough introduction read this.)

Manipura chakra, "city of jewels" in Sanskrit, corresponds in the physical bod with the solar plexus. This chakra relates to our sense of self, the truth we know in our gut, or true heart. If we are out of balance here, we equate our self with the duties, jobs and roles we play in our physical lives. Manipura invites us to see the self as the light, love and aliveness beyond those limited roles. When we align with the LOVE that is at our core, we realize the power of manipura.

This chakra is associated with the sense of sight, the element of fire, the Ram and (conveniently for our memory), the sound of RAM (pronounced ruhm).

Hi LOVES,

So good to be here together with you. This class begins with a laugh-attack. It was quite a hoot to edit! We move deeply into an investigation of the inhalation, the hips, mudra and love.

So happy you are here.

Episode 136// Practice: The Unraveling

March 18th, 2015

Beauty-loves,

Hi! I am so glad to be together again. This episode of Samadhi Rush includes a full-length, all-levels yoga class. Class begins with a talk introducing the Yoga Sutras (briefly), followed by a short discussion of what practice is.

More on the Yoga Sutras here.

In the class, I quoted Matthew Remski's envisioning of practice (abhyasa, in Sanskrit) in his book threads of yoga, which is a postmodern, poetic approach.

A more classical rendition of practice might be: Practice is a consistent willingness to actively engage in the endeavor of stability and tranquility.

Episode 131// Mysterious, Rebellious Potential

February 10th, 2015

Sweet loves,

It is so good to be with you here. I had an AMAZING trip to California last week and cannot wait to share the yoga videos I made there for Yoga Anytime with you.

Today's class is an open-level hatha yoga class focusing on this wonder-filled waning moon time we find ourselves in at present. We call on our capacity to appreciate potential, mystery, darkness and our rebellious spirit in this class. It was a lot of fun to teach and I hope you feel the LOVE of this community of practitioners.

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your practice here. I appreciate you. Where-ever you are in space and time, I love you for just being here.

Jai Mystery Moon!
