K N O W L E D G E .... Sorry I’ve been quiet for a week or so, I’ve literally had nothing to say 😁.. sometimes you just need a good break from social media.
.
I am, like so many other teachers constantly seeking more knowledge and this has in all honesty become a source of self doubt. Recently I came across a really interesting concept whilst reading ‘Shakti Rising’ by Kavitha M Chinnaiyan.~ The constricting power of spiritual knowledge is called Shastra Vasana which translates to ‘the binding power of scripture’.... the antidote of this shadow is to surrender secular knowledge in favour of self-knowledge. When we learn to abide as awareness, or self, we begin to relax and allow deep healing to occur. We begin to gain freedom from slavery to our vasanas (desires) because we no longer jump from one area of desire to another. Learning to sit still and allow information to come to the self and therefore experienced truthfully can help to reduce our constriction regarding our constant need to be filled by knowledge. There are many more interesting concepts in this book, I definitely think tantric yoga is food for thought!

I was recently given some seriously helpful feedback about how I teach. It was delivered so well that firstly I really could see the rationale for why it could work and secondly it was constructive. I think it’s so important as a teacher to ask for feedback, to progress and to ask questions. It is up to you how to interpret the message but when it’s delivered thoughtfully and kindly see it as a positive and work through it..

I’m trying out some challenging poses and fun transitions this week. So good for your body to try something new. How often to you get stuck doing the same thing on and off your mat? Time for a change. Feeling so inspired and excited. .

This weather is heavenly🌞 Moving with the only intention to feel into my body. It’s so easy to get stuck into little themes, hips, backbends, shoulder openers, inversions etc but that isn’t always what I need. You don’t have to always ‘get into the pose’ or ‘make the shape’ but continuously flow... with the only intention to listen intuitively to what the soul is asking... flowing from the inner body instead of outer ego. .

This pretty much sums up my week! Collapsed on the floor. I’ve had flue for the third time this year which must be a record but never mind, I’ve now got that lovely feeling you get when you suddenly feel better! I’m excited for the next few months....🐾... I’m officially on summer break from KLC Design School and therefore got time to study and read all my books 🤓.....

You know that feeling when your alarm goes at 6am and all you can think is ... ☁️ ‘please no I’m having the best dream’! ☁️ I can’t remember it but I know it was good. Well @thenoodlesromanoff you made my morning! I’m so glad I got up for you, first time trying #ekapadakoundinyasana and you nailed it! Such a flying yoga bunny, so proud of your yoga journey. Whatever I throw at you, you take on with such enthusiasm and diligence #proudyogateacher ✨.

..... yup this is where my heads at... already thinking about the weekend. I’m feeling very lucky to be starting at a new studio class this Friday 7.30am @goodvibesstudios Fitzrovia. Such a beautiful venue and a short walk for Goodge Street tube..
.
.
.
My intention is to give students the time to feel into their bodies, understanding that this is ever changing and ever moving physical matter. Not rigid, but the movement of dance that we move into and out of. Breathing into shakes and wobbles to find balance... with so much heat in the air I am drawn to Drsya- Mother Nature which is always in a state of flux. 🌸🌿🌞.

Feeling such gratitude at the moment, content, peace to all....My whole heart talking. It’s a gift to acknowledge not only the lows but also the highs ....this is planning in action. Step by step, making new shapes, finding clear ways to articulate the feeling and sensation. I film so I remember what I did in my little yoga trance. .
