Our yoga practice becomes more sophisticated as it lets us notice and experience the connection between things more acutely—to see the patterns and actions held in common.
Opening is not quick business. We have to explore how we want to open, where we want to allow ourselves to expand.
Handstand is a visceral expression of one-pointed focus—a place where we are only engaged with the experience of that one moment.
Some things give you an experience of your deepest inner truth–the knowledge of what you really are. Not just a limited being, but an inextricable part of the fabric of the universe
It is our ability to open to this experience that is ananda. It is beyond joy and sorrow.
We all have stories. Some of them are amusing, some of them are tragic, some of them are ecstatic.
But the stories are not what we are. What we are is deeper and more subtle than any story. Yoga is our path to find that deeper experience.
