A Willingness to Meet Things Head on….
I love in asana the inner relationship to the body’s position. The body produces sensations to which the mind reacts. While some sensations are pleasant some are not, and our responses to these are of interest to me.
Some friends of mine love to practice within the realm of intensity. [...]
I heard an amazing teaching recently from Adyashanti who talked about using the right tool for the job. The analogy was given in which we refer to our thoughts or feelings as if they were informing us about ourselves. This is such a beautiful thing to consider and the essence of Yoga. Somehow the identity [...]Continue Reading →
Anatomical alignment is the first stage in finding depth and the teachings of comfort and steadiness are paramount in finding a deeper and stiller inner experience. Huffing and puffing in asana isn’t really conducive to a deeper opening. We may have to look into ourselves to see if we have a belief system driving us [...]Continue Reading →
In this post I want to start to explore a way of relating to the body that occurs BEFORE we add any thoughts, ideas, principles or needs onto it. To be with the expression of the body, fully and with attention. The maturity is just to be with the body. Not to look for answers, [...]Continue Reading →

To have the space in which to discover many depths to ourselves and taste a much deeper sense of peace and stillness within. It’s this ‘essence’ of the class that I give most value [...]Continue Reading →
Is there a perfectionist who is always happy? The striving to slot into a perfect posture, to be like the person opposite, to go further each class, takes us away from our home of peace and contentment. The need for perfection and the desire for inner tranquility conflict with each other. When we want something [...]Continue Reading →
Chants Used in Integral Yoga Classes
In deep meditation, Yogis experienced subtle sound vibrations. Each vibration corresponds to a quality of the Divine expressed in nature. When repeated aloud or silently they are called Mantras, and with dedicated and focused repetition help you to experience the deep peace and connection to All. Mantras and sound vibration are the simplest and easiest way [...]
A basic beginners class is a sequence of asanas that have been very carefully put together to capture the essence of an Integral Yoga Class. The order, timing and placement act like an ‘inner alchemy’ in a way to bring about profound and healing elements to the student. I have included the Integral Yoga Sequence [...]Continue Reading →
