Today I bring to my body all that which nourishes it. Today I experience through my soul, I see as my Soul perceives. Today I choose to live! I surround myself with beauty and people, places and situations that uplift and inspire me. Today I choose to be of Service. Today I embody the Divine in me and express it to the outside world.
Yep I feel that good So today we had Vitality!
This class is all about life force. Vitality is the key to distinguishing the living from the nonliving and this class will develop the power of endurance. We lead healthy lives when we have healthy spines and this series of backbends will keep your spine strong and flexible. Incorporating a hybrid of martial arts movements, enjoy a unique approach to increasing your life force through physicality, focus, and determination. -The Ultimate Yogi
I think I scared my dog when I was doing the breathing technique lol cuz she started whining and looking at me like something was not right. Anyways that made me chuckle which totally took me out of my zone but I quickly got back to it. I really enjoyed this experience. I was able to really center myself in the poses, in my body and feel the flow of energy rush through me. When doing these practices I make sure to connect with my spirit beforehand, to check in with myself and each time I do a pose I can feel that energy being expressed. Today was really beautiful for me because when opening up the chest and leaning back I could feel the heart center truly open up. A lot of the Chakras were activated during this process, I could feel a lot of them being cleansed and the junk that was stagnant inside my body, emotions, patterns etc just melting away. During these poses I could really feel my body being restored/replenished and this Source of Gratitude really start to build up within me.
What I also love about this program is so far I am not bored, so far I have not lost interest and I don’t even know how Long the program is I just make the time, pop it in and boom get on with it. It doesn’t seem like a long period of time until after I finish and notice it was longer than I expected. It feels good. I honestly love everything about this. The wisdom through the poses, the words expressed, the teaching style, it all adds to a wonderful experience for me.
Watching (when you are not twisting like a pretzel – kidding) each individual on the program is really inspiring to me as well. The brief moment that I do get to look up you can really see each person in the class expressing their own vital energy, their own way of being in Yoga and it really is captured. I’ve experienced other Yoga training where the people doing the class look so dry, they look very robotic and that they don’t get the energetic alignment, the spiritual alignment, physical alignment that is or at least should be expressed (in my opinion) when it comes to the practice. Maybe it is a challenging thing to express or capture? Regardless though, the essence is definitely expressed here and it makes me want to go deeper, to find that place and express it as well.
Another day of amazing Yoga!
