Yey for Johann! I just graduated to a proper Instagram Yogi. After my beach yoga practice on a fairly windy Muizenberg summer beach at sunrise this morning, I took a whole set of selfies by just standing the phone up, setting the timer to 10 seconds, tapping the round button and posing (haha pun intended). My asana kicks your asana kind of thing? Check out my “whatever asana” invention middle row right. 10 seconds after pressing the button I was nicely caught out halfway between a coffee table and backflip reverse down dog of sorts 🙂
Vigorous asana practice invigorate. Deep breathing during, and pranayama after, more than doubles the vitality. The resulting Prana flow to the body-brain intelligence is remarkable. Stillness and inner power is then placed at the center of whatever follows… meditation, or doing things that require doing. #asana #beachyogi #capetown #muizenberg #pranaflow
P.s. The last note in my text very much refers to the choice of how to apply the energy generated by physical yoga practice, to be mindful to save some of this vitality for self-enquiry. After all a main purpose of “doing yoga” is to generate dynamic energy to undo all the doing that keeps one trapped in spinning wheel mode!
Yours in yoga,
