At the meeting point that unites apparent opposites, we find a third place of existence. Balance is not a place, it is a whimsical experience between effort and ease. ·
Sutra 2.46
"Asana must have the dual qualities of alertness and relaxation." - T.K.V. Desikachar
·
This month's #fullmoonfruition blog (link in bio) is all about finding a moment of balance. ·
We all have individual balancing points of the perfect amount of stimuli, restoration , effort, sleep, activity, and nutrition and those change with season, age, time of day, when we're on vacation, when we're visiting family, and in relation to each other.
.
No wonder many of us are out of balance! Balance is a constant readjustment on a moment by moment basis.
.
Read more and practice noticing a moment of balance within your breath cycle in the blog (link in bio)
·
Join the fun. Post your own pose, a sutra of your choice, and a brief explanation, interpretation, or insight. #fullmoonfruition. You have all month. Next month's full moon is October 24th.

“Stirum sukham asanam.” Postures should be steady and comfortable. Toe stand was one of those postures I though I could never master...so, I stoped trying to be its master and just let my body slowly adapt to to it. Sometimes I can get in to it no problem, and sometimes I just hang out in forward fold for a good stretch. It has taught me a lot about my mind and body & has become my favorite and most meditative postures.

“What’s old collapses, times change, and new life blossoms in the ruins.” 💗🐭☯️
📜⏳Johann Von Schiller
Recently, I gave to Sukha & Sthira these tiny catnip mice a sweet friend gifted to them. It’s been heartwarming watching Sukha, especially, enjoy playing with and carrying around her mice babies. I realized maybe she was comforted by their company when she was relegated to the deli basement 😿 and joyfully playing now with Sthira safe and forever home 💗 love heals 🌀🙏🏼🕊

The asanas are energetic blueprints of all actions. With every action taken in the context of a relationship, our practice gives us access to our karmic storehouse and the opportunity to burn (purify) accumulated karmic seeds including those that have manifested as the conditions we have been born to, and the habits and judgements we’ve created along the way.
.
On our mat, we are given the opportunity to perfect our relationships with all beings, with all of life. Sthira Sukham Asanam. May all of our relationships be steady and joyful 🌻

Nosey neighbors👸🏼💙🤴🏰 My precious pair are cuter, sweeter and more settled at home each minute. Wish I captured them last night watching a movie with me, to share with all of you 🎥🍿💙🤗 No matter your age or whether you liked Mr. Rogers or not, or never heard of this PBS icon, give him a chance to touch your heart and soul. We can all use an extra dose of civility, softness, and loving kindness in these crazy times 💙🙏🏼🌀”In the fifteen years since his death, the absence of Mr. Rogers in the world only seems to grow more tear-jerkingly apparent. Not just because he was quiet and soothing and patient, but because he was ferocious and brave and radical. As Oscar winner Morgan Neville's timely, tear-duct lubricating documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" makes clear, the easily parodied, often underestimated icon of children's television was a total badass.” 📇💫 Mary Elizabeth Williams for Salon

Höstvindar och regn på rutan. Rofyllt och mjukt. Och virvlande energier. I tanken landade jag i en annan årstid. Vilken sommar vi haft. Då när fötterna trängdes bland blommorna i päronträdet fanns det nog ingen som trodde att vi skulle bada varje dag i flera månader. Inte trodde vi heller att vi skulle sluta packa ner ’en extra varm tröja till kvällen’ men så blev det. Vi packade lätt, dök från bryggan mer än någonsin och åt alla middagar utomhus. Nu är det dags att säga tack, tända ljus och plocka fram regnjackan. Ett hejdå är ett annat sätt att säga välkommen. Allt har sin tid. Njut av din lördag. ❤️✨ #mygarden #livetpålandet #liveyourdream #yoga #meditation #summer #thistooshallpass #njutavlivet #prana #pranayama #yogafeet #ringarpåvattnet #flower #garden #yogainspiration #yogateacher #cancersurvivor #cancer #yogalove #tacksam #njutaochskörda #love #letgo #sthirasukhamasanam

sthira sukham asanam - asana (physical practice) is a balance between effort and ease.  poses should be done with a feeling of steadiness and endurance in the body, goodwill in the head, and awareness and delight in the heart. this attention is applied to deliver the asana to the deepest, most remote parts of the body.  with practice, the physical practice facilitates breathwork, concentration, and meditation until dualities end and mind, body, and soul intertwine (bks iyengar). .

Cuando elimino el Ego, elimino todas las enfermedades y las heridas más profundas del pasado ancestral. En cada paso que doy me entrego a las enseñanzas del Proceso de las Sabidurías del Corazón. Con éste libero los factores que provocan la desilusión y todos los tipos de sufrimientos, capa por capa, sintiendo y dejando ir lo que no es útil. #yogiultrarunner #sadhana #sthirasukhamasanam #burningman #galaxia #duststorm #vanlife #meditationspace

Laurin's personal favourite from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali! ⠀
⠀
In any pose, you must only find ease and stability ~ that is perfection of the asana. You need not contort the body, but find strength and balance. You need not push yourself past your edge, in fact you must be able to breathe! Balance is the key 🗝⠀

«Стхирам сукхам асанам» описал  Патанджали в Йога-сутрах определение Асаны как удобного устойчивого положения. Речь идёт как о  психическом состоянии практикующего, так и о физическом комфорте.

And yet again this small book -required for my 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training that I don’t even remember discussing - changes my life - without telling me what to do except to say it’s good to have a daily hot yoga practice. I feel the change from within and I’ve only done a few days in a row @purefireyoga but every day I visit my mat. Some days it’s a great practice and some days it’s me floundering around. Today it was savasana at home. But I’m breathing and breathing. Maybe it’s fire. Maybe it’s the change from within I have been seeking. Love me some @marcusleeyoga. He told me on day 1...you’re already strong ...now learn to find the ease. Each day I practice. And I practice finding the ease. #sthirasukhamasanam #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #baronbaptiste #purefireyoga #hotyoga #journeyintopower #vatalovespitta 😂 #ayurvedalifestyle

The best way to look is to see with your eyes closed. #yoga #yogi #yogaeverydamnday #healing #growth #asana #yogapose #sthirasukhamasanam #meditation #dhyana #dharna #meditativepose #balancingpose  #hipopeningpose #tpose #tposetuesday
The most demanding yet most rewarding thing about balancing is simply allowing ourselves to be constantly present by just simply being.#yoga #yogi #yogaeverydamnday #healing #growth #asana #yogapose #sthirasukhamasanam #meditation #dhyana #dharna #meditativepose #balancingpose  #shapeshifting #treepose #stability #vrukshasana #hipopeningpose
Perhaps what I love about modern postural yoga practise is the beautiful ability to shape shift into different postures. It's much like the feeling of embodying water, being fluid yet still ready to occupy any form of void. #yoga #yogi #yogaeverydamnday #healing #growth #asana #yogapose #sthirasukhamasanam #meditation #dhyana #dharna #meditativepose #balancingpose  #shapeshifting #hipopeningpose #triangle #trianglepose #trikonasana #poolyoga
Finding a gentle stillness in movement is that sweet little bliss of our ability to just be.  #yoga #yogi #yogaeverydamnday #healing #growth #asana #yogapose #sthirasukhamasanam #meditation #dhyana #dharna #meditativepose #balancingpose  #natrajasana #dancerpose #bowpose #dhanurasana #hipopeningpose #beach #beachyoga #sunsetyoga
Acceptance leads to openness of your heart which then leads to openness in our ability to receive.  #yoga #yogi #yogaeverydamnday #healing #growth #asana #yogapose #sthirasukhamasanam #meditation #dhyana #dharna #meditativepose #balancingpose  #hastapadangusthasana #hipopeningpose #beach #beachyoga #sunsetyoga #split #spinaltwist

'Stira Sukam Asanam literally means stable comfortable (pleasant, enjoyable) posture. Having practiced yoga primarily at home for the last 15 years, I always found it oxymoronic hearing teachers in classes tell students, who were clearly struggling, "relax into the pose". Today I understand that struggle is a sign of over-exertion.
If your breath is shaky, your face scrunched, or your body unstable, you simply can't relax. Come out of the pose and reposition yourself. Asanas aren't about how far you can stretch. They are about correct alignment, finding your comfortable limit, and residing in the quiet and stability there. Don't worry about how far you bend or what others are doing, find your own peace, and your flexibility will come with time.'
- Roni, participant of the Sri Sri Yoga TTP (Teacher Training Program)

And you ask “What if I fall?” “Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?” ~ Erin Hanson 🦋

Have you seen our newest piece of art in Christies Beach? I’m loving these #mandalawings by local artist @kathyzepdesigns along with this quote 🦋

Tomorrow nights yoga class is all about balance. We’ll be exploring opposites - effort and ease. In the great yogic text, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, it’s called sthira and sukha. He wrote that each asana (pose) contains both effort and ease to create that balance. We also dance with balance moment to moment in everyday life, but balance begins from the inside out. Come get centred! 7-8pm @christiesbeachslsc ☯️ #christiesbeach

I believe in the power of hustle. I also believe in the power of intention. It doesn't have to be "this or that". Or even "this and that". How about this IS that?

Root, rise. Engagement, expansion. Action, intention. Steady, easy. One thing.

🌄 Day 17 🌅 #yogafeels #yogachallenge today with 🐮#gomukhasana or #cowfacepose 🐮 with @cyogalife @rachely.wang and @yogawithaislinn
..
Today's #yogafeeling is the way we feel when somehow we cannot get into a pose that is considered "easy".... I guess there is a bit of disappointment involved, and maybe even some envy given that we would not know that we are doing the pose "wrongly" if we would not compare ourselves with others.
..
For me #gomukhasana was relatively an #easypose from the onset... instead I would die in #pigeon #rajakapotasana or in #warrior1 #virabhadrasana1 ? Why? I guess very tight hamstrings after running marathons for years and doing competitive swimming all childhood...
..
For Gaby is #trikonasana #trianglepose... she really struggles keeping the front leg straight and feels pain in the lower back when doing it... in my view is precissely the opposite problem as mine: lack of engagement into the #quads combined with very flexible hamstrings!
..
This means we help each other where the other fails, and also that I spend more time in #pigeon and #warrior1 than she does!

I'm not a particularly social person unless they're already my friends. Quite a few people have said through my life, that they thought I was quite stuck up until they got to know me (they actually used another word which I won't share here 🤐). I think the correct term is an introverted extrovert perhaps.
It's strange because my job constantly surrounds me with people and also puts me front and centre. 
But I become quite overwhelmed by large groups, noise, and the expectation to get to know new people. I'm also used to, and crave my alone time. 
However, continuing with my path of pushing my boundaries, exploring, and testing myself as I get older, I made a conscious effort this trip to talk to people I didn't know. After all, there's a whole world out there, magic at every corner and things to be learnt and discovered. 
So thank you @dol.jules and @charlesyd for bringing such a beautiful group of humans together for your special day. It was perfect and I'm honoured to have been a part of it 💙

Anyway, totally unrelated, but here I am making shapes with @tashadxb 👯‍♀️

Sthira sukham asanam ...

How do you balance the energies of action and rest? Effort and ease. Action and being. Engaged enough to participate and co-create, yet soft enough to dance with the changing winds of grace. Strength and length. Action and non-action. Rest in the midst of action. Clear in your vision and malleable enough to know when to change course.

...
Both on and off the mat.

“One of the greatest sources of angelic assistance are your pets and animals ~ these angels have come into this world to be closer to you than any person could ever be. One of the prerequisites of an angel is the unending ability of forgiveness ~ dogs, cats, horses and other animals have this quality mastered... and when they don’t use it, there’s a very good reason. All animals have several bodies beyond their physical ~ one of which is the multi-faceted emotional body. Each emotion is either used as a tool in life, or you unconsciously stumble under its influence...”👼💙🙏🏼 🌊🕊

#achtsamkeit 🙏🏻Durch die Beschäftigung mit Achtsamkeit habe ich gelernt, dass es vielmehr darum geht, mich selbst offen und neugierig von Moment zu Moment zu beobachten. Und dabei immer wieder zu fragen: Was passiert gerade in meinem Körper und was passiert gerade in meinem Geist? Wie fühlt er sich an, wenn ich den Leistungsdruck weglasse? Was passiert, wenn ich einfach loslasse, mich hingebe, ein Asana einnehme und versuche, es mit Leichtigkeit, Spaß und Neugier der Erfahrung gegenüber auszuführen? Ich habe gemerkt, dass sich mein Körper dann jedes Mal noch viel mehr in die Haltung hinein entspannen kann. Das war jedes Mal eine wunderschöne Erfahrung #Sthirasukhamasanam 🧘‍♀️Und jaaaaaa 🤸‍♀️mir ging ein Licht auf. Nach dem Motto: Achso.....darum geht es also 😍 #namaste und einen wunderschönen Sonntag ❤️ *

Drop your head—and with it, drop what you know, what you think you know. Drop your head, and let your body take control—let sensation run through you like an electric current, and energize yourself from a space of lightness rather than density. #downwardfacingdog

I started practicing regularly in 2016, doing Baptiste Power Yoga. The peak posture in every sequence is wheel... excuse me... SIX wheels. I remember not being able to lift for one and believing that six was impossible. .
.
Wheel pose takes everything. Where are my feet? Are my hips lifted? Are my shoulders engaged? Are my arms framing my ears? Is my neck relaxed? Am I balancing between ease and steadiness? .
.
Today we celebrate our whole bodies and also our whole selves. This challenge was so so so much fun. Learning your stories inspires me to be more honest and mindful. And of course - I frickin love my co-hosts and our awesome sponsors. .

New blog post! There is only one mention of physical practice in the Yoga Sutras. It is sthira sukham asanam, translating to 'Posture should be steady and comfortable'. The various translations of the Sutras agree that Patanjali is stating to balance firmness and comfort in the seat of meditation; and many yoga teachers take it into the asana practice, using the concept of balancing effort and ease in all poses. Most yoga students learn this outlook when they first start practicing. Yoga teachers teach this to new students because most people, from past experience, are used to thinking that exercising is all effort and no ease. If you don't feel it, then it must not be working. What a student may not realize when learning the kind adage of sthira sukham asanam is that it takes a lot of courage to live by it. When you start yoga, you decide to encounter the uncertain. You direct yourself down the dark path of your inner world and walk forward. This in and of itself is scary. In this inner world, there's trial and error in learning when to give effort and when to look for ease. Sometimes we push too hard and find pain. Sometimes we don't push enough and we end up with weakness and disinterest. You try to listen to your body and give it what it needs. But that's hard to navigate. This constant trying, of getting back up on the horse again and again, takes courage.

Sitting and waiting for something you’re not sure will come, like this storm, is probably one of the harder things for me to do. It’s a test of patience, a test of self love in finding peace with the things that I discover about myself while sitting in the silence. .

It’s an ultimate test of acceptance - can I accept what may or may not come to be and be ok with either outcome? Detachment. It’s a Mother F*cker. .

Sitting and waiting for something you’re not sure will come, like this storm, is probably one of the harder things for me to do. It’s a test of patience, a test of self love in finding peace with the things that I discover about myself while sitting in the silence. . It’s an ultimate test of acceptance - can I accept what may or may not come to be and be ok with either outcome? Detachment. It’s a Mother F*cker. . . . . . . . . . #detachment  #acceptance  #selflove  #radicalacceptance  #sthirasukhamasanam  #yogiheart  #yogispirit  #yoga  #offthemat  #yogainspiration  #yogajourney  #eagle  #garudasana  #charleston  #yogalife  #healthylifestyle  #lifestyleblogger 
Grunda dig stadigt! I yogasutra kap 2 sutra 46 skriver #patanjali STHIRA SUKHAM ASANAM - att yoga asana ska vara stabila och utföras med lätthet. Jag återkommer hela tiden till att stå stadigt på mattan och grunda såväl fötter som händer, andas och hitta det mjuka och lätta.

Easy for some people
Struggle for others
But yoga it's not about poses, 
It's not about right or wrong 
It's  about how you see yourself and how you adjust the pose so you still can do it without harming yourself.
Isn't it life like that also ? We adapt and adjust whatever life bring us.. #sthirasukhamasanam

This is his first #virabadrasana2, 
And we both are very proud to his progress.

Creating a successful pose is all about harmony: A mixture of strength and surrender, effort and ease. Where in your practice (and in your life) are you being too rigid, or too relaxed? Where can you restore the balance of softness and strength? 🏋🏽‍♀️🧘🏻‍♂️

📿Patanjali definió en los Yoga Sutras, que las asanas debían tener dos componentes esenciales: Sthira (firmeza) y Sukham (confortabilidad).📿

"sthira sukham asanam"
Yoga sutraları okurken tekrar karşıma çıkan cümle, yoga asanalarının içinde sağlam, kararlı ve rahat olmayı anlatıyor. Asanalarla zayıf alanları güçlendirmeyi, daha önce ışık gitmeyen alanları farkedip ışıklandırmayı ve gergin alanları yumuşatmayı öğrendikçe bu hayatın içine de yansıyor. Hayatta zayıf alanlarını farkedip onları güçlendirmeyi, farkındalığını konsantrasyonunu arttırıp an ve an akışın içinde nerelerde uyudugunu, dirençlerini daha hızlı farkedip gerginliği azaltmayı öğreniyorsun. Bu adım adım bir süreç bazen sürecin içinde hızlanmak istiyorsun ama herşey olması gereken zamanda oluyor. Senin tek yapman gereken nefesinle pratiğin içinde kalmak, olana güvenmek,olduğun yerin olman gereken aşama olduğunu ve egona yenilip hazır olmadan bir sonra ki aşamaya geçmek yerine olduğun yerde kararlılığı ve rahatlığı bulmayi, asananın içinde ve an ın içinde sağlam, kararlı ve rahat olduğunda aslında olmaya başlıyorsun ve işte orda olmanin tadını çıkartıyorsun.

Energizza e risveglia le gambe creando stabilità attraverso l'azione della gamba che sta a terra. Yoga non è solo flessibilità ma è equilibrio ed armonia tra flessibilità e forza per raggiungere quel punto di immobilità nel corpo che porta alla calma interiore e ad uno stato di grazia.

#BeyondThePhysical benefits of #uttanasana #forwardfold ; like opening #hamstrings , #releaving #backpain , and helping with digestion, etc.... forward folding is also a #humbling #asana that, with consistant #yogapractice , will #cultivate #endurance , #patience and #compassion. Yes, you need #corestrength in this pose to support your lower back, and #muscular strength to protect the hamstrings, but you also need #mindstrength to #surrender and #letgo in order to receive the full benefits of this #asana . Utanasana is a true #balance or #union of effort & ease #SthiraSukhamAsanam 
Forward folding allows us the #opportunity to #lookback on #past experiences and learn to let go of our grasp of what #WAS so that we are able to move towards the future with less apprehension. #Vinyasaartslkn #aloyoga #Manduka #goCleverYoga #JadeYoga

2.46 Sthirasukhamāsanam (sthira sukham asanam)
•
 Meaning: An asana must have the double quality of alertness and relaxation.
•
How can we adapt this concept in to our parenting? In to our “go time”? In to our bedtime routine? In to life’s mundane? Can we work towards an alert confidence with a gentle steadiness even in hard situations, or when we’re over tired? Our children deserve our grace. Thank goodness yoga can help. We’ll share our ideas in tomorrow’s #momandbabyyoga class! I’m interested in what you bring in to your life.  Class starts 9:45am👏🏼

Satya the niyama from the yoga sutras extends the commandment of “thou shalt not lie” and raises it to “speak your truth.” It’s not about what you don’t say, but what you DO say. 
I’ve had a truth to speak for months.  I’ve kept it bottled up. My truth was admitting failure, admitting a bad decision, acknowledging I was wrong. I was scared of my truth, scared of the hurt it may cause others, the hurt it may cause me. It sat inside me, growing, branching, evolving. 
Sometimes it’s just not that simple, to say what you need to say, when you need to say it. Sometimes we think we can change the truth, or we are comfortable holding the truth, or we are scared of the change the truth will bring. 
I spoke my truth, my bottled up festering nasty truth. It came out ugly and scattered and unrecognizable. It hurt, I hurt. Then... it was out, I was light.

Yoga - it not about how ‘FAR’ we are in any pose, but how we ARE in the pose. 
What is open. What is tight. Where might we allow in a little more breath, a little more space, a little more expansiveness? Where are we gripping? Where can we ‘let go’? How is the breath? Where is the mind? How are the emotions? Can we find sthira sukham, a steadiness and ease, within this pose, at the edge of difficulty and challenge. Or. Are we better served by going only 80% of our max, because THAT is what best serves this body, this moment, right here, right now? 
And. Once again. Breathe. 🙏🏼❤️
