Sequence and Play List

One of the folks that joined us for our first practice at my new home studio on Thursday had asked about my notes. We did not get to everything. Consequently, I am going to extend the next practice another 15 minutes so we do not feel rushed. My wife was surprised at the decidedly classic rock play list. So, I decided to post both.

I have been medically advised not to do yoga. Wtf?

“I have been medically advised not to do yoga” said one of my very first yoga students that would come over to my house for free yoga for seniors on Saturday afternoons. She told me she quit in an email yesterday. Wtf?

It really hurt me. I always felt like she got it and could see the smile in her face. I call BS on the adviser. Here’s why.

One thing that one of my teachers told me helped more than anything else. Breathe. Bring pranayama into your daily home yoga practice. It is all about the mind and not so much the physical body. The meditation and introspection is key.

There are also restorative yoga classes that I personally love and that allow me to have practice even after I do something stupid and get hurt. I rarely go to any open level yoga class without substituting a child’s pose for any given pose and have never had anyone yell at me for doing so. I have been yelled at many times for doing stupid stuff above my pay grade. I don’t yell, though. I help others do stupid stuff, too, spot them so it is safe, and laugh when I fall.

I would like to go back to the person that gave the medical advice and get them to qualify their opinion like don’t do twists and back bends as opposed to don’t do yoga if you have something wrong with your back. Anyone that says don’t do yoga does not understand yoga.

I encourage folks to continue on the path even if the physical asana is not possible. The best thing I ever did is start yoga to train my mind after injury. We can’t prevent things from happening to us. We can change the way we feel about it.

Namaste,

Jim

om bolo shri sat guru bhagavan ki jai – Here’s to all the teachers.

Here’s to all the teachers including yours and mine. They come in many forms.

“When the student is ready, a teacher will appear.”

I can’t say whether Buddha made that statement or even spoke English yet found blog post on origin:

Written by Dr. Bob Butera – This Yogic saying holds a key universal truth about learning.

I can say that within this past year, my studies in yoga produced the most transformation within me than any other thing in life to date. Why? Because I found the right teachers including the one within each of us. Love and compassion for all. God bless all creation.

Sex, Nudity, and Yoga – What is Your Intent?

Jim Ray

Don’t worry. This blog article is safe for work. I purposely use rhetoric to gain readership and to get attention. Then, I have the punch line. If you take my rhetoric out of context, if you don’t wait for the punch line, if you misunderstand my intent, then we might not make great company together. Your approval is not necessary.

Oh, and on the nude selfie featured image, that’s me. I’m 54 and proud of my physique especially after skiing accident in 2010 prevented me from using my left leg to walk without equipment for 2 years due to broken leg and two knee surgeries. Yoga has been good to me and allowed me to lose 23 pounds plus move in ways I never dreamed when in the wheelchair. I have had to listen to my smart wad friend tell me I have a side boob (see next picture) when I had put on the weight and had shot selfie in lounge chair at swimming pool a couple of years ago. So, if you are offended by the photo, then get over it. Really. Just get over it.

sexy speedo and side boob

For what it is worth, here’s a photo from last ski season 2015 where we enforced the rules whereby others are not allowed to pass including ski patrol and, as usual, had altercation with ski patrol. It may be in my best interest to retire from the type of skiing I used to do that won me a silver NASTAR medal in competition with NC State and ECU three decades ago. My knees can’t take the bending over into crouched position to reduce wind resistance for extended periods of time.

tree pose - vrksasana

Sex, Nudity, and Yoga

Here’s the deal. When your yoga practice progresses into the advanced domain that I define not as some fancy pose but rather as what you are able to do with a given pose, you will be close together and touching other students and teachers. Your bodies will be exposed to varying degrees. You will be moving and breathing together. Combining it all with elements of music and dance have produced some of the most meaningful experiences I have had in life to date. The advanced assists take it to a whole new realm of intensity. When you are breathing together for several breathes, assisting another or getting an assist, moving deeper into the given pose on the exhale, and having your bodies touch very closely whether male or female, you must be professional and have clear intent.

I do not dance with everyone. Why? Because we might not know the same steps. Clear intent may be misunderstood in yoga with beginners. So, I do not dance the same way with beginners that I like to do with the advanced yoga practitioners. It is not a matter of prejudice. It is a matter of training. To me, hardly anything is more beautiful than working with others that have mastered the art of the assist. It does not happen on the first trip to the mat. It took me over a year to gain a deeper appreciation for the assist. For a beginner or anyone I do not know fairly well, I ask before I touch and then only do minimal assists such as a little shoulder pressure during savasana. For a more advanced yoga practitioner, I may also ask before I touch yet will move deeper into poses with firm touch as opposed to soft touch that might indicate a different intent. Nonetheless, our bodies will be close together. Close enough to hear the breathe. Close enough to see and to synchronize that breathe. Close enough where parts might accidentally bump. You have to be mature and advanced enough to laugh it off and move on or to not do it. There must be trust, clear intent, and professional delivery.

Personally, I like bringing home techniques learned in yoga regarding breathing and movement with my spouse of 17 years where I am in monogamous marriage even though no marriage is always a smooth ride. It is a choice. Choose what it right for you. I keep my pants on at yoga.

So, here’s the punch line. Whether a teacher or student in yoga, have clear intent. Be professional with assists. Communicate very clearly. If something doesn’t feel right, say so. If the teacher does something wrong, the student needs to say so in private and nicely. If the student does something wrong, the teacher needs to say so in private and nicely.

That is all.

Namaste,

Jim

Playlist for Yoga 6/13/2015

In keeping with a philosophy of advanced planning, here is the play list I just finished for my yoga practice in 15 minutes.

Play list - yoga 2015-06-13

I also will add this dharma talk:

Take a moment to arrive on your mat. I had opportunity to arrive in my space on top of sacred ground at Mount Mitchell for six hours seated meditation on granite. At that time, I had a profound moment about my yoga practice I wanted to share. To arrive on your mat means many things to many people. Now, arrive on your mat with the following thoughts. There is no judgment. No one cares about the car you drive or if you have a car at all. The size of your house makes no difference now. The color of your skin does not make you better or worse than anyone else. It does not matter what name you call God. Just arrive.

Breathe in as you count to four. Breathe out on same count. Notice how you feel. Enjoy several more breaths on same count.
Add hold for four count top and bottom of breath.
Set an intention for practice.

Sat Yam Dharma Talk

In the Laws of Manu from 1500 BC translated into English by G. Buhler, consider Chapter IV, verse 138:

Let him say what is true, let him say what is pleasing, let him utter no disagreeable truth, and let him utter no agreeable falsehood; that is the eternal law.

In Sanskrit, it says:

Satyam bruyat – priyam bruyat- na bruyat satyam apriyam – priyam cha nanrutam bruyat – esha dharmah sanatanah.

In Hindi, it says:

सत्यम ब्रूयात प्रियं ब्रूयात न ब्रूयात सत्यम अप्रियम

प्रियंच नानृतम ब्रूयात  एषा धर्मः सनातनः

Happy Businessman in the Nature

What does it mean to me? One of my teachers had used the mantra “sat yam” in her classes. Sanskritdictionary.org defines satyam as truthfulness. She also said do everything with love. Therein lays the magic to embody truthfulness and to say what is pleasing by doing so with love. More specifically, consider love as the basis for the following three main points:

  • good thoughts for ourselves and for others
  • kind words for ourselves and for others
  • good intentions for ourselves and for others

Short seated meditation: inhale and silently say to yourself “sat,” exhale and say “yam.”

Asana sequence for initial practice prior to vinyasa flow:

  • Seated neck rolls
  • Forward fold with crawl to left and to right
  • Child’s pose – balasana
  • Cat/cow – bidalasana/bitilasana
  • Down dog – adho mukha svanasana

What is love? Is it a cold and broken hallelujah? Is it something we learn? Is it the trinity – the father, son, and holy ghost? The Bible says God is love in John 3:16. Jesus said love as I have loved. Hugh Hefner may have said the same thing. Love between partners certainly is another type of love. There is love between teacher and student, friends, family, pets. There is also loss, separation, sweet emotion, and dark emotion that drives one to check out.

Asana sequence for vinyasa flow:

  • Sun salutation – Surya namaskar A
  • Sun salutation – Surya namaskar B
  • Warrior I/II/III – virabhadrasana

Do you feel like checking out of the hotel? Take it in. Acknowledge it. Notice how you feel. Then, exhale, and purge thyself of all things that do not serve you. One may not change events destined to occur. One may change how you feel about those events.

Asana sequence for floor work:

  • Table
  • Thread the needle
  • Pigeon prep – kapotasana
  • Bridge pose – setu handha sarvangasana
  • Reclined spinal twist – supta parivartanasana
  • Shoulder stand
  • Plow
  • Final relaxation – savasana

Closing:

  • Fetal position – with your eyes closed, slowly roll over to right side, and come back to your intention.
  • Comfortable seated position – keeping your eyes closed, slowly push up to comfortable seated position.

What are you going to take off the mat now for yourself and for others? How about a little bit of love? As you inhale, raise your arms up to the sky, reach up and find that love. On the exhale, lower your arms and twist to the left to send out that love to one side. On the inhale, reach up while coming back to center to find your love. On the exhale, lower your arms and twist to the right to send out that love to the other side.

  • Inhale your hands to heart center and bow your head. Be true. Be love. God bless all creation.

Jesus Christ

cross

In keeping with philosophy of discussing non-controversial topics, religion on this Easter Sunday came to mind. No judgment. I was raised in traditional Methodist faith and have no regrets. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and learned about unconditional love. More importantly, I learned from a peer that Jesus would hang around with lepers and whores as opposed to the country club. That Monte Christo sandwich at the country club is pretty killer, though. The big take home for me is being saved by forgiveness for my transgressions and freeing my soul to practice unconditional love which is my Heaven on Earth as opposed to carrying around baggage which is my Hell. I’m not waiting until I die.

Happy Easter to all those that celebrate it.

Enter yoga into the equation that predates Christianity many years. Imagine Jivanmukti. Imagine liberation while the body is still alive as Heaven on Earth. Imagine that all religions have the common goal of living life with love in your heart and only the man-made rituals separate us. We talk in tongues that are language barriers and further separate us one from another.

Here’s to all the teachers in our lives that help us bring it together on the mat so we may carry a little more love with us off the mat and into our lives as well as the lives of others. May we all live life with love in our hearts whatever name we may call our gods.

One love.

Namaste,

Jim

Moment of Inspiration and Gratitude for Yoga Practice

So, why do I spend time with yoga? Because it helps me change the way I think, feel, and move. I have been blessed with wonderful teachers that have helped me develop my practice to share with others the way my teachers have shared with me. It is a very selfish motive in one person’s eyes and a very selfless motive in another person’s eyes when one takes love and compassion off the mat and out into the world in everything we think, say, and do.

I had my moment of inspiration and gratitude for yoga practice this morning when I checked my email and saw a beautiful senior yogini make multiple additional reservations for my free community practice at my house on Saturday afternoons. It brings me great joy to share my practice with others and to see progress occur. My practice is decidedly slow and gentle. It is not for everyone. I am and will always be a student of yoga. Losing the use of my left leg without equipment for two years after skiing accident in 2010 helped me appreciate yoga because no one judged me for doing or for not doing any given pose. I learned to breathe, to purge my mind of all things that do not serve me, to smile brighter, and to love deeper.

If I am able to touch one other soul and to help that person also develop a practice, then one of my primary goals shall be met.

Namaste,

Jim
