Podcast – Meditation – Falling Back in Love with our Embodiment

Yoga & Meditation is not about transcending or bypassing this human experience, however practicing to embody it, in a more spirited loving way. Using a simple Pranayama practice to focus the mind and physical sensation in waking in your body to the loving companion of the present moment.

Podcast – Practice – Yogi Feet, Koshas & Mantra

This practice is to establish a connection to a strong physical foundation with our ‘Yogi’ Feet, so we are able to take the deep dive into the more subtle layers (Koshas) of our journey into our ‘inner being’. Using mantra “SO HUM” to stabilise the mind as we channel our Prana creating clarity and spaciousness in all layers (Koshas) of our experience.

Podcast – Preamble – Back Bends 5 Prana Shaktis

Evolving from the work we did with the 5 Prana Shaktis in the previous podcast, this preamble & practice focuses on Back Bends, alternative vinyasa and applying the deeper philosophical insight the teachings offer.

Jonni Pollard has been an inspiration to me and I share in my preamble (forgot to give a shoutout) his reduction of the teachings to this brilliant statement from his book The Golden Sequence: “Life is sacred. Love is your Nature. Wisdom is your Power. Fulfilment is your purpose”. This book is a recommended read to inspire a recommitment to the practices for anyone.

5 Principle powers of creation expressed through the experience of our being. 

  1. Iccha Shakti: the unlimited power of will, determination and drive to fuel us and to become the unstoppable force in fulfilling our intention, purpose and experiences in our lives. 
  2. Jnana Shakti: the boundless power to know from our intuitive wisdom of discernment from real and unreal, truth and untruth, virtue and non-virtuous.
  3. Kriya Shakti: the ability to choose wise actions, that are aligned with your intentions and purpose, guiding you skilfully to fulfillment. 
  4. Cit Shakti: the power of an illuminated mind, clear, undistracted, undistorted. To fully awaken to the light of knowledge resting within and expand in that light. 
  5. Ananda Shakti: the known experience of being whole, complete, at one with all. Filled and embraced in Pure Conscious Awareness that is always present. Bliss, serenity, peace.
