This isn’t for becoming better at poses. It’s time for taking really good care of yourself, and becoming better at you.
It doesn’t matter how simple or complicated your yoga is, or anyone else’s, or what anyone else thinks. I wouldn’t worry about this one ever. What’s important is giving yourself you-time, within a hugely supportive learning environment that will help lift you up when you need it.
Remember the other people around you aren’t here for comparison. In these training courses above everything, the group is here as a team, to lift each other, and to help us each learn how to lift ourselves.
We don’t learn all this so we can create an image of “advanced” or an idealized picture of anything.
It’s about what’s inside.
Learning to connect, see what we need,
and maybe most of all, practice many new ways
of responding to who and how we are.
There’s a structure for this, and a practice. The structure begins with Natural Movement – dropping the stress, and learning to move with more ease in our lives. Once we have this structure of natural movement in our bodies, we can progress to Responsive Movement – a process of tuning in, self-diagnosis, and supportive response.
We learn to direct how we move precisely for what we need, unblocking energy where it’s blocked, discovering and removing the roadblocks that begin on the inside, bringing every part of us into harmony with every other part, and of course, healing on every level.
When we re-open the conversation with our bodies,
we can’t help but become our own best care-givers, optimally supporting all that’s unique about us,
including our capacity to achieve what we dream.
Amazing things happen here.
There are many good ways to practice this, including in our yoga, tai chi, and whole life. Yoga provides one vocabulary of movement that lets us connect with our bodies and minds, sense what we need, and respond. Tai chi provides a different and powerful vocabulary for new kinds of movement, to accomplish the same ends.
Each moment is filled with the unexpected. When we become fluid in our movement, in our being, we’re more easily adaptable and responsive to the variety of challenges we face, and more able to accomplish what we desire.
