There is some kiss we want with our whole Self, The touch of Spirit on the body…’ these are the first two lines of a essential poem by Rumi that best describe the primal drive we experience to turn the awareness back to the Self.
Likewise, Patthabi Jois writes that we are attracted to yoga like moths to the light, & Krishna in the Baghavad Gita states that only those who have practiced yoga in past lives find themselves back on that path. This Truth was/is great relief to me since I find myself time and again remembering yoga, awakening from the sleep walking slumber of living one’s reality outside the ever-watchful eye of awareness.
In other words, don’t sweat the small stuff – it’s just the divine lila (play) manifesting in its variety of forms!
My Teaching Style:
My classes are eclectic as there are so many aspects of yoga, styles, teachers. On the other hand, there is but one journey. This journey is neither long nor short. Don’t get tangled in self-consideration, overwhelmed by the vastness of the Infinite or the variety of practices. The very concept of path presupposes distance when actually the yogic experience is available at any stage: all one needs is to keep one’s attention clear and focused and everything will come in time.
