Yoga and Fatloss – Self Practice

Question: Why can’t we remember and repeat the asanas during self practise as we do with you in the class Answer: Before beginning the class, bring your mind to a neutral place from its sadness or hapiness. Then the memory is ready to collect impressions of body, mind and breath from the asana practise and the teachings and tips given in the class. Later during self-practice, you can rely on the memory and recollect the impressions. But usually, our mind doesn’t allow us to be in the present with our teacher in the class. It wanders around in the past and the future. We are physically following and copying the instructions but mentally we are in some far-off place. Later, our mind forms its own perceptions about...

Women’s Health Class – self practice during Festivals

Question: How should we continue self-practice during Festivals? Answer: Festivities are definitely a time for celebration, but it is also a period of overwhelming work and exhaustion for women.

Intermediate Class – work on perception and intelligence

Question: Many times, we feel that we are aligned properly as per the teacher's instructions, yet we are unable to do the final asana. Why is that? Answer: We have to work on our perception and intelligence. Our perception about ourselves and people around us guides our decisions in life. For example, sometimes we perceive that our family needs our support and we work hard towards providing it just like the shoulders work to support the neck in Sirsasana. In the process, we might overburden ourselves and our loved ones just like many of us burden our neck and hurt it in Sirsasana. We need to step back and intelligently observe and reflect on our perceptions. What is your perception of your body and the asana? We need to...
