The Joy of Community: Kula-Family

Yesterday, we concluded the first of five days of the Anusara Yoga Certified Teacher's Gathering, an event which takes place every year, and is one of my favorites, because it feels like a coming home...

It is an amazing experience to practice and share together with other like-minded souls - some who I see only once a year. We come together to practice with - and be inspired by our Master Teacher, John Friend, the founder of Anusara Yoga. I will just list a few of the many gems of wisdom he laid gently before us, like a delicate wreath or arrangement of blossoms...

Anusara Yoga is a balanced dance between opposites...

Use the breathe to open your own pose - in your own time...

If one part of your body is more open than the other side, the pulsation is unequal...

Always give yourself the time to let the Shakti move through you...

Shiva is consciousness (statis); Shakti is consciousness (dynamism)...

You cannot rush your time to open in a pose. Your time is your time...

In Tadasana the center - your core - is moving faster. This is Shiva. Shakti is the outer body...

When you get lined up, there can be an opening...

These are just a small sample of the Tweets I posted to Twitter last night. For those of you who would like to follow tweets from the Gathering, go to Twitter and use this hashtag: #ctgnc

Enjoy!
