Students often tell me, “Oh yoga comes so easily to you.”
In every practice I take time to analyze where my body needs to work and try to think of ways to open it. Much of my practice is spent experimenting.
I videotape my practices to make sure the mind (what I think I am doing) and body (what I am actually doing) are on the same page. Yoga (or as Prashant says, “Yog”), does not come easily to me. I have to be very disciplined and make time to practice every day. This becomes more important as I get older in order to keep the body and mind sharp.
This personal video practice is dedicated to B.K.S. Iyengar and his teachings, my teachers and Jyoti Hansa, AKA Snow Leopard, born Thelma Jeane Porter who reached out to me and touched my heart.
