Tuning in Yoga ...

we practice in synchrony.

In him was life
and life was the light of men;
 light shines in the darkness
and the darkness has not overcome it.

(John 1,4-5)

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:

 

Welcome to,

Afterwards, the practice proposal awaits you, consisting of two distinct and consequential moments:

  • Meditation

  • Ashtanga Yoga

Today's proposal will unfold like this:

Start reading the written track following the directions in order to prepare yourself physically, mentally and spiritually for what you are about to do.

Remember that it is always very important that you take the time and space to practice.

The entire proposal will last approximately 2 hours. However, if you feel you do not have all this time available, we invite you to follow the proposal at least up to the MEDITATION audio track included.

Following the written instructions you will arrive at the first MEDITATION audio track that today accompanies you in a space dedicated to Gratitude .

After completing the meditation, take the time you need, and then start practicing following the ASHTANGA YOGA proposal.

Here the choice is yours:

  • If you are an expert practitioner choose the track: FIRST COMPLETE SET.

  • If you are an intermediate practitioner follow the track: GUIDED PRACTICE

  • If you are a beginner or at least feel the need to practice with fewer positions, choose the track: ASHTANGA YOGA BEGINNERS

Given the characteristics of ashtanga yoga and the intensity and dynamism of the practice, it is essential that you read the following:

 

IMPORTANT!

The proposed practice of ASHTANGA YOGA   is designed for practitioners of ashtanga Yoga with already a minimum of  previous experience, in respect of their current level (expert, intermediate, beginner) . If you decide to follow it, do it with total serenity and especially if you are not already an ashtanga practitioner and / or do not have an already established practice, do not run away if the indications seem out of your current reach and understanding. Stay as long as you can and then slowly give yourself time to relax, breathe and calmly exit the practice.

To simplify, remember to print the card with the ashtanga positions and to print or view before starting to practice the card with the name of the positions that make up the audio track (only for beginners, ASHTANGA YOGA BEGINNERS page)

Good practice!

With Joy and Gratitude

Thomas for Kyem

Sunday 7 March at 10: 00     Gratitudine_cc75881905 -5cde-136bbadd3_cc781905 -5cde-136bbadd-136bd3_cc781905-5cde-136bbadd3-136cc5-3194bd3_cc781905-

Prepare the practice space with care and attention, making sure it is intimate, quiet. It is important that this is a moment dedicated to you.

Carefully spread out the mat and use a pillow, folded blanket or zafu for meditation if you like or use them during your listening moments. This will help you maintain a more comfortable position for longer.

Keep the virtual support you have chosen to follow the practice (pc or phone) close to you but do not let yourself be disturbed.

Keep a pen and a notebook or paper handy, they will come in handy later.

Prepare a bowl of water and place it in front of you. In front of you place a lighted candle.

Sit on the ground bringing your buttocks on the pillow or directly on the mat, feeling the support on the ischium.

Cross your legs to find a position that is comfortable for you.

Listen to your body weight, balance the tilt of your spine until you feel straight but effortless.

Breathe.

Welcome the sounds coming from the outside trying to integrate them to your listening. Refine your listening more and more, reaching far and near sounds.

Look at the candle, observe its contours, its movement, its light.

 

The power of Gratitude:

 

Learning to be grateful is the first step on that path that leads to understanding who we are and how immense is the treasure we hold in our hearts.

Being grateful is a choice, a very specific choice of how you want to be in life.

Being grateful is a departure, not an arrival.

Being grateful for Life strengthens the state of health of the person and helps to walk towards well-being, as Gratitude, like a balm, is able to heal wounds and prepare the body and soul for healing.

To be grateful it is essential to choose to do it without expecting anything in return and to do it without ever getting irritated or opposed against Life if things, day by day, do not go as we expected.

To be grateful you need method and constancy; that certain method that always puts before everything the movement in favor of gratitude, and the constancy of those who do not want to waste even a moment in useless mental turns that only benefit the sense of guilt and condemnation.

Gratitude is the perfume in the flower, the colors in the rainbow, the dance of light in the dawn, the eyes in a child, the white mantle in the snow fox, it is the falling snow, it is the transparency in the sea.

Gratitude makes no noise, does not show itself, does not boast of itself.

Every day when you wake up, the choice is yours. It is up to you to choose whether you oppose the movement of Life and hurl yourself with anger at what you will meet or whether to be grateful because a new day is dawning and with infinite precision the sun has returned to illuminate the earth to guarantee everyone beauty, food, oxygen, nourishment ...

Every day the choice is up to you and from this choice will flow your way of being in the world and above all the way of being in yourself.

And if you are faced with the doubt as to which is your choice, try to observe the sky and the stars, the sea and the mountains, the eagle and the deer, the oak and the narcissus. Look at a child's face.

If you have any doubts this is a surefire way to let them go and choose now to be grateful.

MEDITATION

 

The audio track  MEDITATION   takes you through a listening path. Listening to your breath, listening to your sensations. Listening to your inner dialogues. Listening to your wishes and choices.

Feel calm and independent . 

Meditation is an intimate journey that everyone can do only for themselves. Techniques are just expedients, tools to embark on this path. But  it is very difficult to guide a meditation effectively and it is even more so with the use of the virtual. Stay close to yourself and make your own path. With serenity, sweetness  and calm.

IMPORTANT:

Choose carefully the place where you will practice listening, make sure it is quiet and protected. Sit down in a stable and comfortable position.

When you open your eyes, go back to looking at the flame of the candle in front of you. Observe its movement, its outlines.

Slowly regain tune with the body and gently move the main joints; neck, shoulders, wrists, pelvis, hips, knees, ankles.

Bring your hands into the bowl of fresh water that you placed in front of you and refresh your face, eyes.

Take the time you need and then write down in your notebook trying to answer these 2 questions easily:

  • What is Gratitude to me and what am I grateful for?

  • What are my desires, what do I really want for me now?

When you want, start practicing by following the directions below.

ASHTANGA YOGA
