Happy Easter Long Weekend

Yoga in Mother Nature

We are a little piece of continual change, looking at an infinite quantity of continual change.

― B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Life

Happy Easter Long Weekend!

Term finishes next week just in time for a studio rest before the new term begins.(18th April)  

Wishing everyone rest and replenishment in the break.

 I feel inspired and attune to signals that the season of hibernation, consolidation, reflection approach as nature prepares for her long winter rest.
This contracting quality draws us not only into our homes but also into our inner worlds, a big difference from the playful, exuberance of summer.
As days grow shorter and early mornings become darker finding ways to be in yoga can become increasingly difficult.
Try this….
*Booking a class or two in the studio. It propels and diminishes lethargy.
*Recognise & appreciate the time when in yoga. 
*Remind yourself again of supportive benefits…staying grounded,(“Stability-The Physical Body, Asana”― B.K.S. Iyengar)  ..staying in good care of yourself.
*The intimate relationship with the inner landscape and the greater awareness that grows with intelligence of body, breath, and emotion.

Beginners class is the doorway to it all…..

I began yoga in my middle age and attended weekly Iyengar yoga classes with various teachers in Canberra. When I started to attend two classes a week I noticed a difference in my practice. It took some time before I started my own home practice. The impetus came when I was given a sequence to practice daily.

After retiring from full time secondary teaching the opportunity arose to commence teacher training with Alan Goode. This involved many hours of early morning practice.The journey continued as I met like minded people in the training cohort and continued to expand as I attended Iyengar Yoga Retreats in Australia, then Bali, Hong Kong and Varanasi, even classes in London and Bangkok The principles taught by many different teachers involved attention to alignment, repetition, use of timings and similarities in sequencing.

I attended RIMYI, the home of the Iyengar family in Pune in 2014 and 2019. Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) is the heart and soul of Iyengar Yoga and is located in Pune, Maharashtra India. Mr Iyengar reminded us that yoga is for everybody and although I am challenged by many poses the intelligent use of props helps give an experience of many asanas. 
My journey is continuing and I really appreciate quieter, restorative practice and pranayama interspersed with dynamic classes.

Goodbye to Fiona, her teaching Saturday morning will be missed by all.
She is heading back to PNG this time to Bougainville!! (Above image in 2016, she taught community classes in Port Moresby and at Bihute Prison in Goroka in the Eastern Highlands) Best Of Luck!!
