About the Mudra Practice in Sri Sribhashyams Practice sheeds – and why it is called "Live Saving Sessions" (by his father Sri T. Krishnamacharya)?
Interesting notes I took in Sri Sribhashyams Seminars, commenting this subject ...
Central point - the different concepts of "existence" in east and west.
Relating to a comment in @reemergenceofyoga / Day 27, 24 April 2021
The moment of the sunrise - is said to be a KUMBHAKA - a small gap where you are able to receive the subtle energy of the universal breath. Most of the spiritual ways honor this precious moment of stillness - the sunrise and sunset. Alike we may experience deep union with the divine - when we practice Kumbhaka in our yoga or Pranayama practice. How to experience this outspicious energy, the moment of Kumbhaka in yourself!
Continuing the Blog-Post2 about the - on first sight - asthonishing pre-requisites of practice in the way Sri Sribhashyam, Sri T. Krishnamacharyas youngest son, taught us. "We practice yoga to go beyond the body" ... So today I try to explain the resting posture - on "The level of the soul" - seeing beyond judgement.
Thats a small inlay about backbend preparations - a mostly daily routine which I integrate in the Surya Namaskaras - as I am not at all a backbender (later I will give you a "test"asana which says at ones whos a backbender and who not...) - I have to do some preps everyday, that I may come in the Upper Dog with a real backbend. These are not all tricks but a basic routines. Also I saw some pics which gave me the inspiration to show you the following trick to a deeper in Dhanurasana ...
Notes on the general Indications for Sri Sribhashyams Practice sheeds - sound dry?
Not at all -- its a lifelong journey of exploration -- exciting, deep and expanding our horizon --- a journey to the subtle world ---- when we start with the first indications - which are "always rest between a posture" - "breathing is always with Ujjayi" - "practice is with closed eyes" - it sounds boring at first sight - but please give me time to explain what amazing themes are behind...
Since long, there is this idea to write a new blog. “New blog” - because I wrote another blog over years, when I was travelling to Mysore, from 2006-2015, where I have been practicing altogether 1 ½ years with Sharath Jois and received his authorization level II
May be this titel is too ambitious –
may be T. Krishnamacharya wouldn’t like it? I am a very small light shining on the theme – but I like to share some thoughts from my heart.
I would like to share my diary about my Ashtanga Journey to Mysore over many yeras, from 2007 - 2014, when I received the "Authorization level II" - after, as it has been usual in these times - altogether 1 and half year of practicing with Sharath in Mysore!
After many trips to GOA, India, to my first and long years teacher Rolf Naujocat - I started my Ashtanga Journey in Mysore in 2007. Only or already 13 years back - it seems to be a completely different time quality - enjoy reading!
APANA is one of the 5 main energy streams in our bodies. PRANA & APANA are the same force -
complementary – not opposite!
As 2 wheels, as sun & moon, as the right eye (sun) and the
left eye (moon) - together, they are your life! (from a talk of Sri Sribhashyam in Wells 2015)
While learning about inner visualization, synchronizing awareness, breath and energyflow - asanas can be done in a way that provides access to apana - with the help of Bandha - therefore experiencing easyness of posture.
