think “downward dog” is a command for your labrador? can’t tell your asana from your elbow? this six-week session teaches the basic poses, breath patterns, and orientations encountered in a standard yoga class. it’s an essential building block for those interested in starting or re-learning the fundamentals of yoga.

yoga and the spine

kim

kim on 11:20 am April 3rd, 2008 / 1 Comment »

yesterday, after a restorative class i’d taught her, a client of mine said,

huh, that’s interesting. so restorative yoga is mostly about bending the spine this way and that way, in order to release it.

she was sitting when she said this. when she said “this way” she bent forward; when she said “that way,” she bent backward.

spine72dpi.jpg it was a simple moment after a simple practice. What struck me, though, was not that her observation is mostly correct–restorative yoga requires the practitioner to hold poses for long periods of time in order release through the spine in several directions. what struck me was the point my client was making about all yoga poses. the point of yoga is always to release energy through the spine. that’s what makes an asana (pose) different from just about any other practice you could engage in.

one of the markers of the west is its emphasis on the superficial. yoga, by definition, is intended to take us away from that superficiality into deeper levels of consciousness–through the unwinding of the spine. each pose has been designed over thousands of years to enable us to examine the steadiness and ease in each posture–so that we can examine the stillness, or lack thereof, in our own minds.

and thus, we engage in practice. even one of the most demanding poses you could imagine:

is meant to release energy through the spine for the same purpose as the most relaxed you could imagine:

this is what we are learning in a yoga class– how to be steady and easy no matter what the “pose.”

controlling the letting go of control

sometimes that’s what it takes. to peel yourself off the wall of your own patterns, to go inside and let the breath take you.

an asana (pose) actually takes a lot of control — that’s why we refine them over time and attempt more difficult ones as our practice deepens.

the more we control the body’s response to the shape, which exists outside us in nature (triangle, mountain, tree), the more we free the breath, which exists inside, to enliven us exquisitely.

this, the paradox of practice.

i was standing in line today at citibank, and i noticed that without irony, cyndi lauper’s money changes everything had been chosen to play through the speakers for customers waiting in line.
