Compact Preamble & Practice –

Abhinivesha in Practice

Abhinivesha is the last of the five Kleshas which are the mental-emotional afflictions that create persistent distress, pain and suffering in our lives. This particular Klesha is triggering and provoking as it stirs up our fears and makes us react in negative ways. Abhinivesha is the fear of loss, the fear of change and the fear of death. This can be the loss of a job, the change of a relationship status or the death of a loved one. Fear of loss, change and death is a suffering deep within our instinctual subconscious, hard-wired for self preservation as well as to avoid it with all cost. It is imbedded in our autonomic nervous system to protect us from danger. It is in all of us as our biological make-up whether you are wise or naive, educated or not educated, if you approach a cliff edge and peer down 100 meter drop you will have the same reaction to flinch, back away or avoid it, all the same. It is natural to want to stay alive.

So why is death so hard for us to face when it is a part of life? Everything has a beginning, middle and end. We can see this in nature, seasons, in our thoughts, emotions and life situations. Everything changes so why is change such a threat? Well…it’s the Ego…damn Asmita. Why would it want to be evicted from this home, our body? In the status quo it has a mind, opinions, beliefs, views, things to play with, even possessions. It has a personality, reputation and perceived importance in the world. Why would it want to let go of family and friends, a belonging, a reputation, possessions and/or the experience of love?

As long as we are ignorant (Avidya) of the impermanence of things, there will be an ego (Asmita) which is fuelled by attachment (Raga) and aversion (Dvesa). This ignorance will perpetuate the fear of dying (Abhinivesha).

To live and to fear, worry and try to control or resist the inevitable only creates more suffering and unhappiness. As Yogis, the practice is to pause, realise we have no real control when it is our time to die and trust in the process of life and death (Isvara Pranidhana). By practicing Kriya Yoga we can calm the Kleshas and face the unavoidable change.

In this class (which I need to warn you, can prove a bit emotionally strong for some) we will use a Buddhist Practice – that you receive notification that you will die in 28 days. The practice explores and analyses your life a bit. Would you change anything? What would you appreciate more of? What would you pay attention to? What would you risk? What are you afraid of? Are these fears helping you or harming you? Are you making the most out of your life? Are you afraid to die? Are you afraid of pain? Are you afraid to let go of this body? Your story? Your things? Your titles or labels? Your practice? Who are you when you are trying to be somebody?

This practice and exploration offers a deeper relationship to investing in what you are ultimately, SAT CIT ANANDA. This is an Asana practice but the key to it is Pranayama and following the breath cycle it teaches us about the reality of impermanence and how to practice with the ‘little’ death exhaling and pause. The art of surrendering, the art of letting go, the art of acceptance and the path to freedom.

Compact Preamble & Practice –

Dvesa in Practice

Dvesa is one of the five Kleshas which are the mental-emotional afflictions that create persistent distress, pain and suffering in our lives. This Klesha is the aversion of past experienced pain and suffering. It is natural to avoid things that are scary or may cause harm, however this Klesha draws our attention to what we are resisting to experience and is usually linked to a past experience of pain and suffering. There is a slogan that says “if it is a hysterical reaction, it normally is a historical one.” This insight into how our brains and body saves and stores memories of fear based information is a useful design to keep us safe and protected for future experiences. As we mature though some of these memories and our aversion to them limit us in our lives and our relationships it give us the illusion that we are free from that painful experience if we keep running away from it. There is another slogan, “what we resist, persists.” This resistance is felts as tension in the body and we contract reinforcing the other Kleshas to get involved forming resentments, grudges, dislikes, hatred, hostility, harmful judgement and more negativity. The solution is to start to look at the stories we tell ourselves that keep us stuck in the core false beliefs and if we can start to investigate and to look at the story in a different way. This technique is called Pratipaksha Bhavana, seeing the value and learning how to see the positive and to view our reaction of aversion as a useful opportunity to practice. This builds trust in ourselves to love and care for our past and present self, opening the possibility for healing, finding lasting fulfilment and freeing ourself from Dvesa.

This practice we will work with the peak pose Bakasana, which is an arm balance. This may now bring up some resistance and you may want to avoid this class, however as we are facing Dvesa within our reaction to things, I feel it fits this theme nicely. We will be reinforcing the biomechanical insight Cat/Cow or Chakravakasana that provides us the foundation to build a strong, stable form to balance and approach the peak pose. So expect core and arm balances.

Compact Preamble & Practice –

Raga in Practice

Raga is one of the five Kleshas which are the mental-emotional afflictions that create persistent distress, pain and suffering in our lives. This Klesha is the addictive, craving, chasing, dwelling, feeling and a holding on to and attachment to previously experienced pleasures. Raga means colouring, likened to a stain on the lens of our perception which creates ignorance (Avidya). Raga seduces the ego (Asmita) through sensory and emotional worldly pleasures and identifies with the stain, reinforcing a progressive addiction to seek. It tends to pull consciousness out of the moment’s awareness and creates the illusion, that happiness will be attained if it is fulfilled. If the desire is not fulfilled then the experience of suffering arises – disappointment, let down of the expectation that it will FIX or SOLVE YOU. Desire is fine, just as long as we are not attached to the outcome. Raga gets triggered when we think we won’t be able to experience certain pleasures again, so begins the craving.

We will explore this complex dependency Kleshas with the Drishti technique of gazing and drawing our awareness to unconscious wandering and seeking Raga. The asana will be twists that create the desired heat for positive change as it provokes, triggers and awakens our attention to longing for more pleasurable experiences. We will combine twists with forward bends to learn effective skills to self-regulate, sooth and create a pause to reflect, digest and release that which doesn’t serve.

Key questions to focus on during this practice are:

  • What do you crave?
  • Why do you crave it?
  • What is going on in this moment that draws you to that which you are craving?
  • How is your behaviour affected by what you crave?
  • How is your attachment to what you crave colouring how you perceive the present moment, thoughts, choice of words you think, behaviour, your movement in class?
  • Can you delay gratification?
  • What is between you and being in the moment now?
  • What do you really need? 
  • What would create lasting fulfilment, freeing us from the pain and suffering we experience?

Compact Preamble & Practice –

Asmita in Practice

Asmita is one of the five Kleshas which are the mental-emotional afflictions that create persistent distress, pain and suffering in our lives. Asmita is the distorted sense of Self as it mis-identifies with the body, emotions and the thoughts we have. It reduces us to our likes and dislikes, what we can or cannot do, to our job, status, reputation, accomplishments and failures. It is the affliction that reinforces core false beliefs that we are not enough as we are, that you are not smart enough, beautiful enough, flexible enough, successful enough, etc. Whatever the thing is you think you lack or keeps you from seeing your true self is, Asmita

With this practice we are going to progress and evolve on the first Klesha we worked on last week (the Avidya class) where we worked with back bends and developed our sensitivity. As we were provoked, disrupted and challenged the negative thoughts, emotions and memories that surfaced became our teachers as a result of the Kriya Yoga Practice. 

To counter Asmita we need to recognise a healthy ego which is the experience of contentment. This practice will focus on states of change and how threats can arise when we face change and lose sight of the secure feeling of fundamental needs being met. A healthy ego is open, curious and willing to learn. However, most of all, a healthy ego is considerate, kind and compassionate not only to ourselves, but to others. It is said that innately we are SAT CIT ANANDA; existence – consciousness – joy. That essentially we are the experience of the light of awareness embodied that is Joyous. The intention for this practice will be to create the heat and physical discomfort consciously desired to burn through the old beliefs of who we think we are, guided by the light of awareness. Your focus will be to embody what you find as lasting contentment, fulfilment and freedom from your pain and suffering as a result of distinguishing, identifying and separating yourself from your Asmita.

Compact Preamble & Practice –

Avidya in Practice

This Kriya practice will help you dissolve the vail of Avidya (ignorance and misunderstandings) that impede your ability to see your life clearly. We will use strength building back-bends and the Mantra SO HUM.

The second chapter of the Yoga Sutras tells us that Kriya Yoga (Tapas, Sva Dhyaya, Isvara Pranidhana) reduces the Kleshas (mental-emotional afflictions). We will start our journey working with the first of the Kleshas Avidya which is the state of ignorance, misapprehension, misunderstanding and the blind spots that obstruct a true view of ourselves, others and the world around us. Using our practice to work with today’s pain/suffering that is felt, we will apply the suggested techniques to dissolve the distorted lens of perception. This will culminate with a meaningful connection to truth, sustainable fulfilment of understanding and ultimate liberation of our suffering.

OM Asatoma Mantra Vinyasa Practice

OM asato mā sadgamaya, tamaso mā jyotir gamaya, mṛtyor mā’mṛtaṃ gamaya  Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad 1.3.28

Guide me from untruth to truth, Guide me from darkness to light, Guide me from death to immortality.

The words to this mantra are simple and timeless, but reinforcing your yoga practice with the words can make all the difference when you are looking for a bit of clarity, direction and hope. This vinyasa practice works to strengthen and stabilise the external rotation of the legs within the pelvis in order to open, release and to prepare you for a seated practice. Drop into all the effort within the practice and ease yourself into a short meditation using the OM Asatoma Mantra.

Zephyr goes deep into the explanation of this particular mantra and hopes you feel the effects of weaving this mantra into your practice. Mantras can be a bit “marmite” for some, but if you haven’t tried a practice with mantra, this is a great one to “give it a go”. Long may the effects of this practice stay with you. You are star dust!

Compact Preamble & Practice –

The Heart to the Method of Yoga – Abhyasa, Vairagya & Viveka

When practicing the goal is not just to clear the mind of all thoughts and stop thinking rather you should try to increase your capacity to recognise when thoughts are present. Practice training your experience of conscious embodiment to rest in the present moment. This moment is the only time you truly can experience contentment, happiness, connection and awakening (The State of Yoga). To be present two things need to occur; to have the intention to be present and to turn the attention back to the present moment. Try to train the body, breath and mind like a puppy to sit and stay. The mind/breath/body-puppy will wander into the future and start planning your day, wander into the past and fix a problem of yesterday or fantasise about playing in the park with others. Try to devote a dedicated regular daily practice to lovingly train yourself like a puppy to sit and stay in the moment, building the mental capacity to rest in being, lessening the doing and awake to the truth revealed to us in moment-by-moment loving awareness.

Abhyasa is said to be a focused, diligent practice cultivating the authentic trait of stability in body, breath and mind. Vairagya is a letting go of sensory observation of what arising as thoughts, emotions and sensations. Viveka is the wakefulness of keen discernment as we practice turning our attention back to moment by moment awareness.

This practice works with progressively lengthening the exhale pattern for the desired effect of heat (Tapas), leaning into what is, letting go of that which does not serve and letting be in this moment. Dynamic work within asana and then holding postures to provide that support we desire to trustfully let go.

Removal of Obstacles to Manifest Intentions

This practice weaves Asana, Pranayama, Mantra, Kriya and Mudra ( I know, a lot! Don’t be scared) into a Vinyasa experience to direct Prana to your New Year’s Intention. I will share a little secret with you as there is a simple equation to manifest your Resolution more effectively:

Intention of your Desire + Intensity of Prana > or = to your Obstacle

Working with the teachings from the Yoga Sutra (with a Tantric Twist) you will address the obstacles that you face preventing you from fulfilling your intention. I will help you explore some suggested solutions to remove those obstacles and build more vital Prana to direct it to attaining your hearts Intention.

Using the Deities Ganesha, Lakshmi and Sarawati to add a layer of sound, meaning and energy to the experience, Mantra is a big part of this practice.

Compact Preamble & Practice –

Nurturing Smile Back to Belonging

This therapeutic session helps us to focus on the fundamental needs in our lives that, for whatever reason, are not being met; feeling safe, loved, belonging to and connected to. Nurturing ourselves back home into our embodiment during practice becomes an act of self-love by holding space for our shadow-side of our humanity and loving us through whatever surfaces. Those negative thoughts, feelings and attachments to our actions are there to teach us and exploring your shadow-side and working through those feelings in your practice can be a transformative experience.

This vinyasa practice will include Mudras which means seal. We will practice throughout a smiling Mudra to shape the breath to be kind, nurturing and patient and hand mudras which will connect us to their unique intention of ‘sealing’ the effects of the gesture within us.

Compact Preamble & Practice –

3 Malas

Mala means stain, impurity or veil of ignorance that masks the soul from it’s true nature drawing it into darkness and duality. In other words, Malas are dimensions of limiting knowledge of not only who we are but what we are, pure consciousness. 1. Karma Mala: Identifies yourself by the body, what you do and what you think your appearance is. 2. Mayiya Mala: Identifies yourself with your thoughts. 3. Anava Mala: Identifies yourself by your feelings. That we reduce ourselves by defining who we are by what we think, feel and do.

This practice of hip openings, forward bends and binding will provoke you to wakefully address the thoughts, feelings and actions that surface. By allowing these aspects of us to surface we identify how we get lost in story telling, judgement and limiting ourselves to believe that we are only what we think, feel and do. This practice uses Asana, Pranayama and Vichara to wakefully be present with what unfolds, increasing self- honesty of our struggles and find the path back home within ourselves acknowledging not just who you are but what you are.

Compact Preamble & Practice –

Courage to Face Change

This practice provides tools and techniques to help self-regulate strong thoughts, emotions and actions due to changing circumstances. According to the 1st Noble Truth of Buddhism one of the causes of suffering is change. The experience of change can provoke a strong reaction of fear that imbeds itself and distorts how we relate to ourselves, others and our world view. Through asana, pranayama and mindful reflection you can practice ways to strengthen, stabilise and create clarity helping to discern how to move forward through change with resilience.

This asana practice is focused around forward bends, twists and balances with 1:2 Pranayama Breathing and mindful reflection which will allow space to bravely face what surfaces as a result of change.

5 Upayas

The Union of practice; asana, pranayama and meditation should be grounded in mindful reflection called Vichara. This is how you, as the Adhikara (competent student), to take responsibility and accountability of what comes up in practice and skilfully use the Yoga tools to best move forward in your practice and your life.

The Adhikara is made up of 5 essential ingredients or skilful means called Upayas. These Upayas are 1. Shraddha: Faith, Trust, Serenity. 2. Virya: Strength, Courage, Determination. 3. Smirti: Memory of vital information, what matters most, higher purpose. 4. Samadhi: Absorption, Wholeness, Oneness. 5. Prajna: Illumination, Light of Awareness, Rootless Intuitive Wisdom. We will be exploring these attributes within you through Pranayama (breath work) and Asana (physical practice) moving into strong, strengthening backbends and a lateral practice, mixed with twists and nurturing forward bends.

Compact Preamble & Practice –

Bija Mantras & Chakras

There is much mis-conception about the Chakras. At the most basic level, they are wheels or vortexes within the body that both receive and radiate energy. There are seven of them and they start at the crown of the head and then are strategically found down through the body to the base of the spine. The Bija Mantras are known as the “seed sounds”, or the one-syllable sounds that activate the Chakras. Mantra is said to protect the mind and the use of these mantras is to spark a positive neurological effect within the body, energy and mind. We use the the Bija sounds to open us to the meaning of what these Chakras hold, empowering, motivating and potentially healing us through practice. I am not a singer so pardon the pitch and tone of my Bija Mantras, but I will try to express the sound and vibration of these teachings for you to explore your unique resonance and to harmonise the systems and to leave you with radiance from your practice.

Yamas

Vinyasa Practice slowly working with poses to build from the ground – up, exploring the space to apply the Yamas to the practice. The Asanas in this practice are Hip Opening, Forward Bends, Back Bends, Laterals and Twists. The intent of the practice is to open you to the entire space that you occupy, serving yourself before you go out to serve others in your community.

Yamas are the 5 guidelines and ethical disciplines which make up the foundation of all Yogic thought, helping reduce the suffering felt, providing greater space to create clarity in our relationships to others. 1. Ahimsa – Non-Violence in allowing space for others to be as they are and learn what they need to. 2. Satya – Truthfulness, honesty and transparence in our relationships, words and actions. 3. Asteya – Non-Stealing of time, attention, ideas, money or energy. 4. Brahamacharya – boundaries in maintaining our highest priorities to what matters most to us and not losing sight of it within our relationships. 5. Aparighaha – Non-Possessiveness, Letting go of Control.
