Dayton Rocks! Philip at Practice Yoga

play
2012-01-17 Length: 1s

I discovered that Dayton is a haven for hipsters!   I was at Practice Yoga - a cool studio there owned by a Live love Teach teacher – Kathi Kizirnis-  and Kim Carter.  I taught a weekend for a teacher training they were doing…and also taught some public classes- this is one of them.

 

The first 18 minutes is a Q and A you might find interesting.  The rest is a compact, fast moving dynamic vinyasa class.  A tad over an hour.     As always, we assume you already know basic poses and alignment. 

 

If you want just the class, cue it up at 18 minutes and get into down dog!

45-minute Dynamic VInyasa Flow followed by Yoga Nidra

play
2011-09-23 Length: 1s

Here is a 45-minute Dynamic Vinyasa class.  Philip Urso starts it and Stacy Dockins finishes it  -as usual we assume you already know basic alignment and want to flow. 

 

Then Deborah Williamson takes you through a 35-minute Yoga Nidra.  If you have never done the Yoga Nidra- “yogic sleep” you may find it exceptionally restful.  One study I saw claimed 1-hour of Nidra was equivalent to 4-hours of “regular sleep.  You could use these together or apart!  The Nidra begins at about 42 minutes in--- Enjoy! 

 

Live music by Kellie Lin Knott – if you listen you can hear a big fire crackling in the fireplace.

Montana Teacher Training Class- all the teachers

play
2011-09-21 Length: 1s

I thought you might enjoy this very unusual class.  It is a teacher training drill from Live Love Teach’s recent 5- day training in Montana.  It is a complete 75-minute class, yes, but it is taught by all the teachers in training – 3 minutes each!  In this drill, you will hear the teachers playing –playing is the right word-  with breath and flow, tension and release, and expanding their range of expression. (Most of the time we are broken into small groups- occasionally we join into one big class)  There are all levels of teachers here- brand new teachers and experienced ones ,  and – many styles- teachers of vinyasa, ana forest, astanga,  and others.  More info see http://www.liveloveteach.com/

 

As always. we assume that you already know basic alignment and want to flow.  This is not for raw beginners, but if you know basic poses and alignment you should be ok.

Flow Builds, What do you Value More Than Love?

play
2009-01-04 Length: 1s

This is a Sunday 8AM class that builds consistently.  What do you value? Being right or happy.  winniing the arguement or Love?  What is the overriding priority in your life?

If you say love is, then why aren't you always loving? 

When you are not loving can now be seen as the greatest of gifts, showing you exactly where your priorities are off.  Where healing, forgivness, awakening is needed.  Where love is not the top priority, is your compass showing precisely where your spiritual work is.

Yoga Bootcamp 2

 

HEADS up This is not a yoga class, but the first discussion from the Day Long Yoga Bootcamp I taught in September at ALL That Matters, the largest holistic health center in New England.  This discussion follows the class posted called Bootcamp 1.  You are going to get the entire bootcamp- pretty close.

 

This discussion is about Intuition and what blocks it.  We first discuss the idea a flow from the book Beyond Boredom and Anxiety.  It defines Flow, what we call presence, as the space in-between boredom and anxiety.   His study included athletes, but applied to all of us.  We want to increase our experience of flow or presence because we get a large hit of intuition, and that always feels great.

 

At about 11.5 minutes we begin to draw a map of what blocks us from our intuition- this is pretty fun. The map we draw is called the “red donut‿ “almost famous‿ from my Podcast, “A Crash Course in Miracles.‿  This is pretty fun discussion and expands pretty far.  I hope you enjoy it.  Please look in the iTunes window- a picture of a red Donut in included with this post.   If you are looking for more yoga, it’s coming in the next few posts- there may be one more discussion first- maybe not.  Then I have a backlog of classes to post.  Thanks.

How to use these yoga classes

play
2007-01-17

Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga is amazing.  I rave about it here.  I am Certified by Baron Baptiste.

You need to be an experienced beginner.  You will need to know basic yoga poses and safe allignment.Helpful to have a block and strap (or tie is a good substitute).  Heat the room.  Ideally, 90 degrees F and 60% humidity (use a humidifier if possible).  You will sweat alot.  Have water and towels nearby. If you get tired, dizzy, or find your breath has come apart and you are panting, take child pose, regain Ujayii breath, and rejoin the class. As with all exercise programs, you do so at your own risk.To download class, see classes below and right click where it says "pod." Click on "Save Target as."  Put the file where you can find it.

The ultimate book on the practice is Journey into Power, by Baron Baptiste.  This is one of the best selling yoga books ever. This will show every pose and explain safe alignment, the sequence and the philosophy.

For more info...see SaltPondYoga.com

presence above treeline

play
2006-11-13 Length: 1s

In yoga class, as in life, we have an experience.  As soon as we name the experience, something happens.  Naming or labeling the experience is like opening a file of our past experiences under that name. Our past judgments rush in and color in the experience, dulling presence.

When this happens, we no longer see reality. All we see is our own past judgments pasted on what we see and even feel. We become disconnected with reality. In a very real sense, we are alone in all the universe. This state, (and one of anxiety*), is what we experience most of the time. 

Sometimes we come across an experience that has no past reference in the mind.  The mind is suddenly stilled.  There is no memory to dull the experience.  This surprising break in the dullness frees us to experience what we are: love's presence.  Usually it feels like awe, like when we cross above treeline on a new mountain peak the first time. 

In this class we practice not naming what we feel.  We simple let the experience be shown to us as it is now.  We practice looking intensely at the reality, the sensation and the breath, instead of the dull experience of yesterday's sensation.

As always, the aim of the class is to expand our awareness of the rush that we are and learn how to regain it when the dullness tries to work its way back.  Once we learn at will how to feel the rush of what we are, the dullness is intolerable.   (*It's not just the dullness, but also the anxiety and the drama, but that's for another class.)
