Hello dearest community,

Today, I have a vibrant, all-levels yoga class to share with you. We use a few listening techniques to refine our connection to the senses. These practices fall under the umbrella of Pratyahara on the eight-limbed path described by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. I am SO glad you are here. Thank you.

Episode 36– Finding Ease

May 20th, 2010 · Comments

The Yoga Sutras say very little about the physical practice, asana.  What they do say, however, reveals that to find one's self in the posture (asana, which translates literally to "seat"), one must embody both effort and ease.  So often, we neglect the ease.  We decide that effort requires more obvious work, so it must be superior.  But establishing ease in the posture (on and off the mat) is infinitely more difficult.  When we are straining less, we are more susceptible to the thoughts that arise in moments of quiet.  Whether you are a new or veteran student, I invite you to approach this sequence (about 25 minutes) with ease: hold your body at ease, let your breath flow easily in and out of the body and go easy on yourself when thoughts arise.  I do hope you love this practice.

My dears, I thank you so so much for joining me on this podcast journey.  I appreciate your support and hope you will get in touch with your yoga stories.  {Hello to Patrizia in Switzerland!  Thank you for the email!  Welcome back Peggy!!}

Dears, if you listen to this podcast and enjoy it, I hope you'll consider supporting me by writing a review in iTunes.  Thank you!

Blessings of love.

Kelly

Episode 35– SHINE! A look at Aparigraha.

May 13th, 2010 · Comments

Blessings, dears. 

 

This is episode 35 of the Sunrose Yoga Podcast with me, Kelly Connor.  Today’s class is about 40 minutes long, all levels.  Our philosophical focus of this class is aparigraha, non-possessiveness—one of the yamas.  I’ve been writing and talking about aparigraha quite a bit lately.  You can learn more about it at here on my blog, where I’m also in my last leg of the 30 day video blogging challenge.

*

Thank you all so so much for listening.  I appreciate your support and offer this practice up to you with deep gratitude.  I just read the most wonderful tweet from Deepak Chopra and feel it’s most appropriate given my feelings about this podcast:

 

I make my vocation my vacation. I know that I am following my bliss when my work is an act of love and devotion. Every day is a joy to live!

 

I actually have a bit of embarrassing news: I have been giving out the wrong phone number for months…on accident!  My google voice message line is ACTUALLY 503-583-2599.  Please call.  I update the outgoing message with something new all of the time~~ You don’t even need to leave a message, you can just call to listen.

 

Or.

Also, I have a teeny favor, since my birthday is coming up in June.  If you enjoy the podcast, could you take a moment to write a review of it in iTunes?  That would be fantastic! Thank you.

 

And so, with that.  I wish you peace on your path, love in your heart, and light in your eyes until we meet again and always, Namaste.

Episode 28–Spring Santosha

March 25th, 2010 · Comments

Blessings, dear yogis.

anjaneyasana.jpg

THANK you so so much for joining the Sunrose Yoga Sanga (community) and for sharing your practice with this podcast.  Today's class was recorded live at Community Fitness, where I teach on Thursday nights and Monday afternoons.  This class is an hour long and focuses on Santosha-- the yogic concept of contentment.

We began our study of Santosha several episodes ago.  Today we look at this niyama (observance) a bit more closely, and cultivate deep contentment within our practice, our SELVES, in order to share the love with others more readily.  This seems particularly appropriate to me around the Spring Equinox--which is the new year in some parts of the year-- a time to reflect on our intentions for the year and move into the fullness of their expression.

Thank you so much for your emails, tweets, comments and donations.  We are now up to over 3,000 subscribers!!  You are amazing, dears!

Please get in touch with your yoga stories! 

 

ALL LOVE,

Kelly
