Pose of the Month: Malasana

MalasanaNew York Yoga photographer Sofia Negron Sonic Yoga Pose of the Month Portrait Photography

As we enter the fall season , the season of vata , the winds are picking up, the temperature is slowly going down and the sunlight is starting to disappear earlier and earlier.

Grounding down to the earth can be very helpful during this transition.

Malasana, known as garland pose, has a steadying , grounding and pacifying nature to it. We use this posture as preparation for hip opening and arm balancing. But used alone it is a wonderful asana to breath and root down in. Connecting us to mother earth and our mulandara chakra .

Standing in tadasana , hips apart , toes slightly turned out, squat down to the earth bringing your elbo
ws into the inner thighs, hands in prayer pose , lengthening the spine as you breathe.
Try chanting the bija mantra LAM while breathing in this pose to connect to the root chakra energy.

Happy November, Friends!

Jo-colors head smallHappy November, Friends!

“When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge.” (Tuli Kupfberg)

November receives it’s name from the Latin for 9, as it was the 9th month of the Roman year. Interesting that the number 9 is associated with the Hindu Deity, Brahma who is the creator. In our hemisphere, this is the time of year where the external world outwardly demonstrates the journey of dissolution. The leaves fade completely and fall. The grass becomes brown and brittle. As I grow older (and hopefully wiser), I begin to understand that the dissolution is part and parcel of creation. Just as we must go all the way to the bottom of the exhale to receive the deepest infusion of new breath, so must we experience the complete letting go of an old and worn out pattern in order for a new pattern to truly emerge. Ever wonder why a pattern keeps resurfacing when you thought you had “dealt with it?” Certainly I have. I think the answer is that I have not gone all the way to the bottom or the root of the system to dissolve it. Now is the time for threshing and reaping…clearing the field in preparation for new life. May we hone our sight so that we may see all of that which has outworn it’s time. May we be fearless about wielding the scythe. Theclearing IS the beginning…always and in all ways.

When we get to the naked essence of nature…of our nature, inevitably we discover a deeper and more subtle radiance shimmering. It is the brave and bare clarity of what is eternal. When we see and touch that eternity, the heart truly opens.

And, When the heart opens…well…the ground of the soul awakens…ready to receive and embrace new life.

I have returned to this mantra for the season, Sa Ta Na Ma. It is the extended version of the mantra Sat Nam. (Truth is my identity). It speaks to the great truth of eternity threading through the natural cycles and rhythms of life.  Infinity, life, death and rebirth. It is a mantra that strengthens faith and supports stillness and abiding presence in the passage of time.

To explore how to use this mantra in Kirtan Kriya, click this link.

With Love and profound gratitude for this community which has held and continues to hold so many souls in the process of immense transformation.

Advanced Asana Master Classes with Jeffrey Scott Duval

Join for one or for the entire Advanced Asana Weekend!

Solar Arm Balancing 

Saturday November, 7, 2015 9-11am


Saturday’s Master Class will creatively explore an investigation of what we mean by hip opening (of the external variety) and how our coordination of Bandha application and core strength and upper body integration help us to learn how to float into handstands and other gravity-defying postures. Complete with look at the first half of the “primordial vinyasa” and the mysterious “Chataranga Dandasana” that often gets glossed over and poorly executed in flow classes. Expect to be challenged with more advanced Arm Balances but in a way that is safe, balanced and grounded. Followed with some inversion therapy and a deep Savasana.

Both classes include an in-depth guided practice of Pranayama, Mantra, Bandhas, Core Integration, Restorative Yoga and Meditation.

Drop In $30 ($25 TT Grad)

Lunar Backbending

Sunday November 8, 2015 9 – 11am

1974851431Sunday’s Master Class will celebrate the many forms of heart opening or back bending practices combined with Lunar Kriyas to develop cardio-vascular endurance, and also the key practices to begin to open the spine with greater mobility and stability. A complete breakdown of backbends within the second half of the “primordial vinyasa” and a full tutorial of Cobra or “Bhujangasana” and Upward Dog or “Urdhva Muhka Svanasana” and the proper transitions that many students bypass or ignore. Explore safely going into deeper expressions of Back Bends to awaken and renew.
Go at your own pace and enjoy the spaciousness that we create.

Both classes include an in-depth guided practice of Pranayama, Mantra, Bandhas, Core Integration, Restorative Yoga and Meditation.
