Instagram post 18084152707138760 Body Intuition and Yoga Injuries- Honor your body. You are sacred. Emerge gently into your Truest Essence.β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
I love coming up against, exploring, and moving through limitations, GENTLY, with the breath guiding the movement. The body opens gradually; daily. If it’s too fast, it’s not yoga; I can get injured, and then progress comes to a standstill until it heals. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
Yoga injuries remind us to tune into our innate body intuition and listening skills. These injuries are the result from the will force or ego overpowering our innate listening skills. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
It doesn’t matter what our pose looks like or how close we get to say, touching our toes, today. Take the ego out of the equation. Listen to how the body feels. If it feels bad pain, ease off. When it needs rest then switch to a more yin practice for the day. When we are in tune with the body and listening to these signals, injury doesn’t happen and we have a sustainable practice that will carry us well into our later years. When we gently explore these boundaries daily, gradually, over time, the deeper postures become possible for the body. The body will naturally open up to the more advanced postures. For me , this  started happening after 5 years of dedicated daily practice and progressing in this sustainable manner. Inyengar and other great masters say it takes 7 years of consistent practice to master the advanced postures in Hatha yoga. Others say it’s 12 years. (Iyengar was suffering from physical disabilities from birth when he started). I hope people who follow this Insta see the possibility and benefit, whether it takes them 7 or 12 years.

Instagram post 17860577956521365 Been charging with these two guys (chithehoon and D Schwartz) for over a quarter century. So long ago that our first surf trip back in high school that Darren’s Dad took us down to Mexico in a camper there were no cell phones and don’t think anyone brought a camera. Not much has changed over the years except my haircut πŸ‘΄πŸΌ. Fiji was by far the best trip so far. Hopefully version IV of this photo comes sooner than later. .
