We couldn’t say it any better...

Our collective is in deep need of healing. We see the pain, dysfunction, + trauma human beings have carried for generations play out every day.

Now is a time of global collective healing. We are finally starting to face our shadows, find hope, + expand to deeper levels of consciousness.

I believe there will be a paradigm shift from the “expert”/client model. Credentials will be much less of a focus as people seek embodied teachers who’ve done the work + are willing to act as *equal* guides.

Mind, body, + soul will be honored + consciousness will be foundational in the journey.

Community based healing will be the focus which creates more accessibility (globally) for people + more freedom for guides, coaches, therapists, + healers who no longer need to work solely within the 1:1 model. It also allows for support on a journey that often feels isolating, confusing, + scary in a culture (+ system) that was designed around unconscious, auto pilot existence.

Guides on the journey will openly share their own story, display their humanness, + hold space for all that comes up in the dark night of the soul.

There will be an awareness (just as our ancestors had) that we are our own best healers.

In short—we will cycle back to our roots to a time before psychological systems were created that labeled us, diagnosed us, + left us to outsource our knowing to ‘professionals.’

I’m curious, what do YOU think the future of healing will look like? What do YOU seek in a therapist/healer? What was YOUR experience within the current therapy model? #selfhealers

Zoom and patience and surrender to the situation while teaching our brains that yoga can be enjoyed under these circumstances, too. It’s been quite a journey, a collective one with individual experiences adding up to it. Thank you for not giving up on your yoga practice and for your trust that this is contributing to your sanity these days! #yogachallenge #noendinsight

This sounds like when during yoga practice listening to the body...

"It is very important to go out alone, to sit under a tree - not with a book, not with a companion, but by yourself - and observe the falling of a leaf, hear the lapping of the water, the fishermen's song, watch the flight of a bird, and of your own thoughts as they chase each other across the space of your mind.
If you are able to be alone and watch these things, then you will discover extraordinary riches which no government can tax, no human agency can corrupt, and which can never be destroyed."
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

I play a lot with sequencing these days.
I challenge myself (and my students) by introducing new and unexpected sequences on a regular basis. For many years I maintained a fixed order of posture groups in each class: Chandra Namaskar as the opening flow, followed by standing postures and sitting postures, then backbends and a closing sequence of inversions.

When I got more interested and confident in teaching to guide my students into the experience of wholeness, I gradually, slowly and occasionally dared to change the order. (I am referring to a couple of years!) I noticeably made progress by regularly starting classes in a supine position.

I now reached a point where I am confident about my long-trained intuition and the flow of the class ‘comes to me’, accompanied by a ‘deep knowing’ that this is exactly what is supposed to happen, while holding on to the pillar of trust. I hardly ever know exactly before a class what will unfold during the practice.

Once we are 1/3 into the class, I begin to understand where we the class content is leading to. After 2/3 of the class I am certain of how to gracefully finish the class. Almost any class leaves me with a good feeling and with a sense of completion. And that has been fueling me with confidence regarding future classes! ~ Anke

Wind of Change - Yogashala Blog - Yogashala Den Haag

After a silent period I enjoyed challenging myself with writing about yoga and my current approach to teaching. I decided to name it The Wind of Change.

Someone recently asked me in a private class (that he had requested to clarify his weekly yoga practice) what had happened to my classes as I don’t cover the more physically ‘challenging’ and advanced postures. And that’s only one change I implemented over the last year or so. Change requires courage. Sometimes it requires a lot of courage. I don’t always feel drawn to change, and I don’t always feel courageous. But I can clearly feel when it announces itself! And these changes had done so; loud and clear, for quite some time.

I was searching the quote “TO BE HEALED IS TO BE HEARD.” that I found and fortunately remembered when going through my notes from a systemic constellation workshop with Stefan Hausner 3 years ago. This article is in great detail about the author’s experience with this phenomenon.

In January this year I joined a training wherein we practiced Active listening. I managed to greatly fail repeatedly and needed time and practice to learn to keep quiet when someone was speaking their mind, their truth. Instead of the usual response to what was being said, I practiced for nearly a year now to only respond when really appropriate. I find it easier when listening to clients, much harder when engaging in conversations with friends or my partner. Thereby I observe the minds tendencies to already fire a response as I then withhold myself from verbalizing it out loud.

A new year with 365 days to finally start healing, or complete a healing process, or adjust its path for a more direct and complete healing. I very much look forward to it! And to more listening to the stories of others who are ready to experience that To be healed is to be heard! #healing #activelistening #sitandwait #beingpresent #beinglove

THE CRITICAL YOGA TEACHER, thank you Alexandria Crow!

„...Of course, none of this is what yoga is about. But somewhere along the way, practicing yoga—especially at exclusive studios—has become a status symbol.

...Studios will add more and more amenities and become more like fitness centers than places of education. Those with the resources to pay the premium for lavender scented towels and the perfect soft lighting will continue to make yoga their own, while those with less resources are driven away. ...“

FOOD FOR THOUGHT—Have you ever pondered why some yoga studios feel so exclusive? Or looked around at certain studios and noticed that only a very specific demographic is attending?

You know the ones I’m talking about. Where you walk into a class and notice that all the other students have the same hair, the same Lululemon, the same competitive approach to each pose. It’s alienating—especially for a newcomer or a student who doesn’t fit their “look.” To clarify, this can happen in large and small studios in both major metros and smaller cities. It’s absolutely not every studio or class at all but it’s certainly incredibly common.

How many potential students do you think have turned away from yoga completely because they were so uncomfortable with the cliquish environment in the studio they first tried, or because they felt less than for their clothing or body? 

Of course, none of this is what yoga is about. But somewhere along the way, practicing yoga—especially at exclusive studios—has become a status symbol.

Like so many problems in our culture, it of course comes back to capitalism. And the more yoga is commodified, the more we’ll see this trend. Studios will add more and more amenities and become more like fitness centers than places of education. Those with the resources to pay the premium for lavender scented towels and the perfect soft lighting will continue to make yoga their own, while those with less resources are driven away. 

There’s still time to reverse this. I know so many teachers who work hard to make yoga approachable and accessible to all students. But we’ve got to keep spreading the word—speaking up until our voices are so loud that they drown out the chorus of yoga as exclusivity. Are you with me?

BREATHING THE MOMENTS OF STILLNESS
I can't remember when I started to embody the habit of observing the breath. Like many of my students and clients who take on yoga, I must have forced my inhalations and exhalations in the learning process as well. It seems a natural response to wanting to impose change onto something that we pay attention to, or focus on. As if our minds are under the unconscious assumption that what we focus on is not good enough, not perfect in its appearance, presence or expression.

The way I teach yoga rests on observation of the breath and implies leaving the breath alone. Observing the rhythm of the breath reveals its phases of inhalation and exhalation, connected by short moments of stillness.

These moments of stillness are phases of transition. One phase comes to its max in terms of depths and duration and transforms into its complementary phase. It's an ongoing cycle, defined by life and its conditions.

DURING AN IN/ EXHALATION it could be movements to be synchronized, actions to be applied, sensations to be felt and balance to be re-established that occupy our minds and therefore define our doing. Paying attention to THE SHORT MOMENTS OF STILLNESS and recognizing them repeatedly holds the opportunity to shift our focus briefly onto something else in our practice, i.e. clarification, adjustments, the integration or deepening of softness and clear awareness, and to experience the meaning of resting and relaxing into what we are doing.

In- and exhalations alternating with the moments of stillness are like days and nights alternating with each other. They are like periods of activities that challenge or even exhaust us, alternating with periods of rest allowing us to calm down and let nourishment in. Considering that life is about finding balance, we have to take the moments of stillness serious ON AND OFF THE YOGA MAT!

You'll hear me mentioning the moments of stillness when teaching yoga to groups or privately. If we all, teachers and students, make an effort to raise the quality of yoga and increase its benefits, we actively dedicate time and effort to our ongoing personal healing processes merging into collective processes and experiences. A personal yoga practice that brings about the feeling of wholeness contributes to our collective feeling of wholeness. ~ Anke
