The Discipline of Self Love

Love is the easiest path to the Self - Narada Bhakti Sutras

In the video, I explain why the current astrological configurations are a loud and clear call to the discipline of Self Love. I hope you enjoy & can take on the invitation with the contemplation offered in the end! 

Yes, this could be a challenging time, but as my jyotish teacher Hart would say, “every time is a good time so long as we know what it is a good time for”. 

 

Yogic practices are acts of self love. 

Why? 

Because you love yourself enough to try to lift yourself out of pain and suffering. 

You love yourself enough to reach for wellbeing, happiness, bliss and something “beyond” the norm. 

 

The yoga tradition offers numerous ways to delve into the practices of Love, and my October teaching calendar is organized around this theme & vision. 


I’d LOVE to see you in any or all of these offerings. The October are designed to fit together for those who wish to dive in at the deep end with the full spectrum or to select a la carte, for those who wish to do one thing at a time.

Self love with practice to nurture your body & heart

Spinal Twists & Supreme Love starts October 5

Supreme Release Yoga

Spinal Twists & Supreme Love October theme
Explore what it is to twist in ways unlike any approach you have experienced. Most forms of āsana talk about “heart opening” but actually emphasize twisting already-easy-to-move areas {your neck and waist}. SRY twists are true heart openers, that truly decompress the region behind your heart, whilst protecting your waist and neck. 
 
This theme is blissful, softening, nurturing and transformational to your body, mind & heart. 
 
Each weekly practice is threaded with contemplations on the nature of supreme love from Vedic Scripture.
