Good Karma

“Karma” is a word we often hear being bandied around these days. In our culture it is often used to mean “what goes around, comes around”, and if something goes wrong, it’s down to “bad karma”. The word “karma” is actually an ancient sanskrit word that closely means “action”. Like most East-West translations, the meaning of the word has been lost along the way. Karma is the subject of many chapters in the ancient vedic text, the Bhagavad Gita. Arjuna, the protagonist in the story, is being guided in a battle by his friend, Krishna. The gist is that while we are embodied in flesh and appear to be separate beings (Jivas) in the physical world (Samsara), we have no choice but to act. We are tol

One Day Restorative Retreat 17th May and 21st June.

The most difficult pose in yoga.

After reading the title, you are probably thinking of some pretzel shape that only a circus performer can achieve. Actually the most difficult pose is nothing anyone can’t physically do, but it seems to be skipped or skimmed over more than any other posture. Savasana, a sanskrit word pronounced “shavasna”, meaning "corpse posture", is the final pose in any asana sequence. After the body and mind have been challenged on the mat, it’s important to integrate the practice and fully experience the relaxation that comes so naturally after such intensity. It’s time to let go physically and mentally during Savasana. And yes, there is proper alignment required here just as with any posture, and your

The Magic of Mysore Practice

Mysore is the name of the city in southern India where Pattabhi Jois, the head of the ashtanga yoga lineage, taught until his recent death. His grandson, Sharath, is now head of the center. "Mysore style" (as opposed to a led class) has come to mean an independent practice with students starting at different times (and frequently doing different Ashtanga series). Often there is a teacher wandering around and adjusting where necessary. What I really love about Ashtanga Yoga asana practice is the scope for independent home practice.
