Patiently trust your heaviness

 

“Deep down, I don’t believe it takes any special talent for a person to lift himself off the ground and hover in the air. We all have it in us—every man, woman, and child—and with enough hard work and concentration, every human being is capable of…the feat….You must learn to stop being yourself. That’s where it begins, and everything else follows from that. You must let yourself evaporate. Let your muscles go limp, breathe until you feel your soul pouring out of you, and then shut your eyes. That’s how it’s done. The emptiness inside your body grows lighter than the air around you. Little by little, you begin to weigh less than nothing. You shut your eyes; you spread your arms; you let yourself evaporate. And then, little by little, you lift yourself off the ground. Like so.” 
― Paul Auster, Mr. Vertigo

Gravity takes hold of even the strongest thing and pulls it down toward the core of the world. Each thing held in place, is connected to the surface. Patiently trusting your heaviness, surrender to the intelligence in your foundations and invert that pulling force, all the way through your arms and towards your flight.

Places limited. Secure your spot here!

I look forward to seeing you O'yogis, we will explore arm balances with intelligence!

Hold on to it and let it go

The capacity to persist and to let go, Abhyasa and Vairagya are two of the most important foundation principles of Yoga. Abhyasa means practice and Vairagya means non-attachment. Balancing these two companions is a key to pursue the subtler and more advanced practices.

Abhyasa involves cultivating a strong conviction, a persistent effort to consistently choosen practices with actions, speech, and thoughts that lead in the direction of a stable tranquility, many times in the face of constant failure. Vairagya involves learning to actively and systematically encounter, explore and let go of the many attachments, aversions, fears, and false identities that are clouding the true Self. It teaches us to let go, be present and to flow with life.

Holding on and letting go work together. Practice leads you in the right direction, while non-attachment allows you to continue the inner journey without getting sidetracked along the way. (Yoga Sutras 1.12-1 .16)
