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.
Physical Focus (Peak Pose): Baby Crow on our forearms is our peak pose this week. We are focusing on opening our hearts as well as twisting to aid the releasing that eclipse season brings. We are also continuing to build our upper body strength as many of you are loving that Archer Dolphin pose; the babe crow will help us create the strength we need for AD. 😁
Philosophical: Eclipse Season is here! Open & Release
When there is intense emotional energy on the planet (fear, anxiety, grief, etc) the tendency is to conceal the heart and hide, whereas our power lies in opening the heart, bearing witness & allowing those energies to move through us. Many of us who identify as empaths are feeling these feelings in order to process them for others right now. It is honorable work that these folks do. Stay open, stay relaxed ("Relax & Release" as Michael Singer says) in order to not store these energies inside of yourself. Let them goooooo.
