Perfection in Asana
September 2020
 

Yoga Sutra 2.47

2.47 “Perfection in asana is achieved when the effort to perform it becomes effortless and the infinite being within is reached.” 
“Prayatna saihilya ananta samaprattibhyam”.

The stillness in asana/postures comes through effortless effort. It is not found in the struggle but in the surrender.
We surrender all self doubt, all negative energies that would be an obstacle to our growth, and with the realization that we have always been perfect.
When this happens the person is no longer doing yoga but becomes yoga.
There is no duality.
In this we find our way to the divine that resides within us.
We find the infinite of being.
There can be of course many ways to reach this state of being but Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras offers a step by step guide for this journey.
When we reach this state of balance, the body and intelligence can merge in the seat of the soul.
And in this state we will find the end of suffering.

Diana’s School of Yoga is presenting an online Teardrop Support Cushions Master class Thursday 10/15. 
This class will guide you through the use and benefits of its wonderful design and ability to allow deep passive stretching for body. 
The Teardrop support cushion allows the release of your upper back, support the mid back and traction of the lower spine.
The overall effect frees all areas of the body, as the Teardrop conforms to the curves of the body through it’s unique design and buckwheat hull filing.
The use of the Teardrop relaxes mind, spirit and body to a deeper level than any other bolster out there.
This class will consist of detailed instructions on the varied usages of the teardrop, sequence design and stick figures so that you will be able to replicate what was taught in the class from the comfort of your own home.

Teardrop Support Cushions are available to be purchased separately from this Master Class.

Drink This Not That
Is Your Drink Making You Fat?

Stop Drinking Your Calories

• Liquid calories have little satiety power meaning they do not satisfy hunger which subsequently leads to higher calorie intake.

• The artificial sweetener aspartame has been shown to cause weight gain.

• It takes longer to eat calories than drink them therefore the feedback mechanism where the stomach communicates to the brain “I’m full” has ample time to kick in while chewing your food
