Closing Ritual.

Closing Ritual.

Closing Ritual on our last day of the Shiva Yoga 200hr Teacher Training in Cabo! We are back where we started but we’ve been on quite a journey. Yoga asks you to shift your perspective and change your relationship to your Self. When you shift your perspective and change your relationship to your Self, you change your relationship to everything around you. Your experience of the world changes. The world hasn’t CHANGED for you but it has changed for YOU. Your experience of the world has changed. The transformation was all within you. Everything has a beginning, middle, and end. Then, it starts all over again. Every ending is a new beginning. Time is moving very quickly. Breathe into it. Enjoy the journey. Inhale and exhale — over and over again. Enjoy the moment and then let it go. Time to move forward.

Transformation --

Leading the Opening Ritual in one of our Shiva Power classes here at Baja Soul Yoga. I always teach my students to check in at the beginning of class. Before you set off on any journey you have to know where you are starting from. What’s your entry way into this practice? How does your body feel right now? Check in. How are you out of balance? Set up a baseline. How does your body feel? Observe your breath. What’s the state of your mind right now?  If you check in at the beginning of your practice, you can compare this to when you check in at the end of the practice. What’s different? What’s shifted? What’s changed? Are you closer to balance? Is your breath flowing more evenly? Do you feel lighter? Is your mind quieter? Do you feel a deeper connection to your Self? Yoga practice is about personal transformation. It’s not dogmatic. It’s not about someone else telling you how you should feel.
