Logicamente a prática constante de asanas de Yoga melhora a flexibilidade e fortalece o corpo, mas a maior conquista que tenho sentido nesses 8 meses é ter melhorado a capacidade de me concentrar e estar focada no que estou fazendo naquele momento.
Principalmente em posturas de equilíbrio esse foco é muito importante e eu ainda tenho dificuldade nelas.
Drishti é um termo sânscrito que poderia ser traduzido por "olhar focado". Nas posturas de equilíbrio, você procura um ponto fixo e mantém seu olhar e sua mente "focados" nesse ponto.
Parece fácil e talvez seja para algumas pessoas, mas não para todos. A receita do bolo é a mesma: prática, prática, prática. Hoje já consigo fazer posturas como o dançarino, que parecia impossível até uns meses atrás.
Vou tocar nesse assunto pelos próximos dias, porque o Drishti vai muito além de olhar em um ponto fixo nas posturas de equilíbrio e eu acho um tema muito interessante tanto na prática de asanas como no nosso dia a dia 😉
투명망토가 있었으면 좋겠다...
의식적으로나 무의식적으로 시각정보에 의지하게 되는데, 대부분 악의없는 무의식적인 것이겠지만 빤히 누군가를 쳐다보는 사람들이 의외로 많다. 그중에 내가 포함 될때도 있고.
대개는 누가 누굴 보고, 보임을 당하는지 모르고 지나치는 경우가 많지만, too much information이 많이 입력되는 민감한 성격은 매우 피곤할때가 많다.
이런 것도 보기 명상 이라고 할수 있는데, 명상이 꼭 눈을 감고 하는 것이 아니라 생활적인 면에 적용을 해보면 시각정보에 의해 떠오르는 생각이나 감정 감각들을 자각해 보는 것이다.
그래서 요가의 드리시티가 중요한 것...
수리야 AB 끝나고 사마스티티히 할때 옷내리느라 바쁜 사람과 코끝을 응시할수 있는 사람의 내면의 Quality는 매우 다르겠지요.....
Erryday I'm practicing! 🧘♀️ I attended an inversion workshop a few months ago. We were instructed to place bolsters on the floor in front of us in case we face planted. Well...I did. Hard! 😵
Even with the bolster to cushion my fall, I thought my face was going to bruise. I could have let that fall manifest into fear of falling again...of getting hurt...but I chose not to. Instead I turned it into a lesson. Keep my core engaged, stabilize my wrists, shift my drishti forward, etc.
You're writing the story. You decide what happens next. 🕉
Inward gazing. ♥️ If I find myself in situation where balance is especially challenging, I do my best to tune out all the distractions. Finding balancing by gazing towards the sky is extremely difficult for me. Noises - like a rushing river next to me - add to my challenge. I like to close my eyes in these situations. Focus on my breath and the sensations of where my body is in space, rather than trying to see where I am. Everything becomes a bit blurred on the outside and I am able let go of the struggle. ♥️ Wearing one of my favorite @aloyoga fall colors, black cherry. 📸 by the talented @jimmyhwheeler 🙏🏻 #yoga#gaze#drishti#focus#awareness#grace#stretch#breathe#river#nature#montana#optoutside#getoutside#balance#sideplank#vasisthasana#letgo#move#healthyliving#yogaphotography#namaste

#sidecrow is difficult for me. My obliques are overactive. So essentially this is a great pose to reactivate or jump start my overactive muscles!!
The only way to turn off overactive muscles is to flip the switch a couple times. You have to activate the muscle to shut it off. #mintzflow
It’s key! Don’t ignore your weaknesses! Focus on your weaknesses to develop your strengths. Who you are on your mat is exactly who you are off of it. #lifehacks 🖤
Side crow also known as #parsvabakasana is amazing for fine tuning balance and #drishti or focus. It will help tone obliques as well as improve spine symmetry, specifically the lumbar region or your low back.
#safetyfirst never last, have a future not a past 💫
It’s easy to face plant in this pose. Believe me, I have been known to face plant a time or two. Keep your elbows about shoulder width apart and drawn in. Open your collar bones, your clavicles. Push through your entire hand, the palms and fingers equally. Do not let anyone get between your hand and the floor. This helps to stabilize your wrists, push through your shoulders, and maintain a stable body.
Practice lifting one foot at a time. Shift your center of gravity and learn where you need to squeeze. Try for one second and keep trying learning what you need to do to maintain and hold the pose.
PS: don’t forget to breath 🖤
Thank you @ericatenggarayoga #productofpatience this was a great find! 🙋♀️

🦋 Gaze to the Sky 🦋
Having a point of focus (or a Drishti, as named by the yogi’s) helps to focus a busy mind when we practise yoga. I can’t promise you’ll be staring towards a blue sky or a clear ocean but it will help your thoughts to quieten down and allow you to zone in on your practise 💫
I heard it was officially fall 🍁🍂 so I’m going to continue to live through my sunny photographs from this summer for as long as I can! 🙌🏼 here’s to stepping into a new season despite being a summer girl ☀️
Las posturas de torsión en yoga ayudan principalmente a desintoxicar, limpiar nuestro organismo y también al hacer torsiones le damos un masaje a los órganos internos favoreciendo la digestión y acelerando el metabolismo. Las torsiones también ayudan a aliviar afecciones de la espalda y son posturas para neutralizar la columna vertebral después de hacer una extensión. Este tipo de posturas me encantan porque siento perfectamente bien como mi espalda descansa, mi digestión mejora y literalmente se hace una limpieza profunda al “exprimir” mi torso 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 postura: parivtira malasana foto: @mgcandela_photo .
I took it off. I did not want to carry it with me anymore.
I don’t know who wrote it, but it speaks to me. I carry judgement, resentment, and hostility that keeps me weighted down. By forgiving and letting go, I set myself free.
My favorite home away from home! You’ll find me here a lot and often wearing different hats: manager, teacher, student. It’s a balancing act for sure! And that is exactly what my focus was in this morning’s class! (Had such a good time subbing for Gina!) Balance. Finding it. Maintaining it. And being super kind and loving to your self when you lose your equilibrium. That’s the real work... not the staying on one foot part!
Join me regularly on Tuesdays from 1:30-2:30 and we’ll soften our gaze and find our drishti together! @mightyyogaithaca #vinyasa#yoga#drishti#yogateacher#yogaeverydamnday
Just had my first yoga class for the #40DayToPersonalRevolutuon so here’s a pic of me doing #crowspose to celebrate, ok well trying to 😂. It has literally become my a huge mission to perfect crow pose and move into more challenging arm balances but I’m not quite there yet :(. I can see PROGRESS and that’s all that MATTERS :). Being able to keep my #drishti strong throughout and hold crow’s pose for 5 breathes makes me so happy!!! I prefer the first pic vs the second pic but I think it’s good for everyone to be able to see this pose from a different angle but again, my #crowpose isn’t perfected and could definitely be better so don’t take this for an exact measure of crow :) #yoga

#DAY9 of #GetThatPoseYogi challenge.
Arm balance poses require strength, concentration, drishti (gaze point), surrendering and patience.
The asana comes when the student is ready.
And most of the time it is not perfect.
Yoga, the physical practice is not about perfection at all, its about learning how to let go, how to be present, how to smile especially when its hard and how to live the best life you can.
Share the love and abundance we live in 🙏🏼 •
