Spring in the desert means beautiful sage flowers for the altar. And under the crack of the door, obscured by sunlight, a little white and beige tabby cat who is building up the courage to join our shala. 🐈

Luckily, the side door was ajar so when the tree fell, it just opened the door and let the snow (?!?!?) in. #whatclimatechange #dionwantedtogetridofthattree #dramaticmanifestation #mysorephoenix

Desert practice. 🌵 Hot in the sun; propane heaters running in covered areas. Long shadows of nearby practitioners. And sometimes you need special desert tools of the trade. 🕶 #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #yoga #asana #practice #prasaritapadottanasana #mysorepractice #mysorephoenix

Practice at the park. Pigeons.
Students. Dog barking at students taking rest. Didn’t get a picture of the guy who walked by and yelled, “Put on some shoes — it’s freezing out here!” #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #yoga #asana #practice #ledprimary #socialdistancing #mysorephoenix

Led primary in the park that used to be an olive grove. Pretty confident it’s the first time the sentence “Dasha, chakrasana; look out for pedestrians” has been uttered. #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #yoga #asana #practice #primaryseries #mysorephoenix

“You come into the condition you call life, and pass out of it. In between you encounter a lifetime. Suspended — or so it certainly seems — between birth and death, you wonder at the nature of your own being... Each person knows intuitively that his or her own experiences somehow matter, and there is a meaning, however obscured, that connects the individual with a greater creative pattern.” — The Nature of the Psyche: Its Human Expression #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #yoga #asana #sadhana #mysorephoenix

Siddhi of the virtual shala: We defy space — distance doesn’t matter. Usually these fierce women take up two Zoom windows — one in AZ and one in CA. Today, a special holiday treat. #practicingtogether #motherdaughter #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #yoga #asana #sadhana #mysorephoenix

Our practice cultivates concentration. It is the first of the outcomes of our practice. We are able to do progressively more complex and demanding poses over time because we learn how to concentrate our energy and effectively focus it.
.

So let’s run quickly through the elements of our practice. Starting from the bottom: yamas and niyamas. They are the practices and actions you must cultivate to give yourself a stable life. A life where you have enough extra energy to pursue spiritual practices. If you’re spending all your time on random drama, you’re not gonna have much energy for pursuing self-realization. So the yamas and niyamas help us make life as smooth as possible.
.

Then we come to our mats for asana and pranayama — poses and breathing. We practice pratyahara by controlling the activity of our eyes. We use drishti, or gazing points, to slow down visual activity. When the eyes are still, the mind relaxes. When the gaze is soft and steady our focus is drawn inward — away from all the activity “out there.” Cultivating drishti is an important practice. You won’t get concentration without it.
.

You want your eyes to be relaxed and steady. Don’t drill into the gazing point, but calmly turn your soft gaze to the correct spot. See how it feels. Enjoy focusing inwardly — this is where you will find your self; not “out there” somewhere.
.

These limbs, these practices, create outcomes, starting with concentration. As the Bhagavad Gita says, “Without concentration, there cannot be meditation; he who cannot meditate must not expect peace; and without peace, how can anyone expect happiness?” (2.66)

Morning led is done. Evening led soon to follow. “You are right, Arjuna: the mind is restless and hard to master; but by constant practice and detachment it can be mastered in the end.” Nice work, all. Tomorrow, take rest. 🦋 #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #practice #yoga #asana #sadhana #mysorephoenix

Sometimes a shala has an assistant who doesn’t come to led primary on the last day of the week because she will be attending led class with @sharathjoisr the next day. For today, though, @spiritual.hobo will salt and roast her poor husband in #garbhapindasana and #kukkutasana 🤣🤣🤣 #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #yoga #asana #practice #virtualshala #hijinks
