Tuesday and Thursday Class Notes

Request: shoulder focus
Principle of emphasis: 1st principle
Shoulders toward ears (side bodies long. 1st principle) shoulder broad (inner body bright. 1st principle) puff then melt heart (1st principle)
Theme: Alignment based yoga puts your body in an optimal position where healing takes place. It takes discipline to align your body and hold it with stability which leads to more freedom in your mind, body and heart.
We are all injured from past experiences whether psychically it emotionally. This yoga teaches us that every moment can be an opportunity by knowing how we align in each moment.
Quote: "…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are."Pema Chödrön
