I am creating these "Yoga Extras" blog posts for those of you resonating with the public yoga classes & Yoga Teacher Trainings I am leading. Inside of these blog posts you will find extra resources that support our weekly class theme. The weekly classes I guide are themed according to the season & collective energetic "weather"--This is of course influenced by many things; for instance, not only national and global events but how masses of people are feeling about and reacting to those events. It is also influenced by space weather (see spaceweather.com) & the current movement/placement of celestial bodies ie: the sun, moon, planets, nodes, stars, etc. You can find me teaching currently at Black Swan Yoga (North-Anderson) in Austin, TX. I am on the schedule as "Erika K." Mention this webpage for a free class.
The physical focus for class this week: Preparing the hips for Tittibhasana aka: Firefly pose & piking up into Mukta Hasta Sirsasana (Tripod Headstand) from Prasarita Paschimottanasana (Wide Angle Forward Fold) &/or Bakasana (Crow).
The philosophical focus/theme for this week: Miracles. My favorite definition of which is: an immediate shift from fear to love. And what can help with this shift is a change from rational thinking to mystical. Keep reading...
Below I am adding some valuable resources I find SO helpful not only in my private wellness practice but also in my own daily life. Knowing about archetypes is invaluable to me; one of my favorite teachers on the subject, for over a decade, is Dr. Caroline Myss. Talk about an expert! Knowing about archetypes helps us to understand the people and the world around us. But more importantly, it helps us to understand ourselves. That is the crux of my own healing work. When we KNOW who we are and we BE (!!!) who we are, our total health becomes flawless and our personal power so great, there is no stopping us in any aspect of our lives. If we are not BEing our True Selves, our health suffers in all manners of being from anxiety to chronic, life-threatening dis-ease. In a quantum universe, which ours is, it is this simple. Truth is simple. Humanity likes to complicate things, but Truth is simple. Knowing which archetypes we display within ourselves helps us tremendously in knowing & BEing who we are. See the video on Archetypes to get started on learning about this. See the Mystic Archetype video next to begin to understand what viewing the world through the lens of the mystic looks like. You may also begin to sense why miracles are natural, everywhere, as close as a thought/feeling, and to be utilized by those interested in living forward into their higher gifts. Enjoy/In Joy, ek. xo
