Added Preliminaries – Part-1

Today we will look into some added preliminaries for the Matsya Asana and Dhanur Asana that we have learned earlier…

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra: “Yoga is the stilling of the changing states of the mind”

The Matsya Asana alignment with the chest expansion and the next flow-back touch of the crown-earth actually creates a transformation. The dhrishti or gaze in fact creates one-pointedness, called Ekagra. It is because of controlled inflexion called Nirudhdha. The oscillating or swerving mind normally is known as Kshipta nature.

Inhale the future, exhale the past…
Source unknown: Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be cured and endure what cannot be cured!!
B.K.S. Iyengar Light on Life: Yoga allows you to find a new kind of freedom that you may not have known even existed.
ARV: These are preliminaries to any Asana and should be indulged with passion to learn and experience along the curves.

The fish pose establishes a stable posture. YES. A state denoted “Vikshipta” strong ‘stillness’, steadiness or mindfulness is the real transformation one can experience.

Response to something like stress is what we get to CHOOSE. The quality of which comes from our mind and heart. Choose it wisely..!

The consciousness level itself can be slowly altered via this pose. Real “Parinama” or ‘state-change’ is the wonder of this stroke. The vinyasa flow of visuddha chakra of the throat and the energy percolation of the Sahasra Chakra of the crown synergies the body-mind-spirit continuum.

Alongside when we come to the Dhanur Asana the rhythmic laya is added on to the yogini/yogi brain-brawn fixation. We can have the parsva or flank effect (balanced sliding/inflection) too.

Utilize the opportunity to “know” and “realize” who YOU ARE..
B.K.S. Iyengar: Any action done with beauty and purity, and in complete harmony of body, mind and soul, is art.
YOGA is a work-in process to define oneself.
Once you attain freedom in this routine, that’s when a day wouldn’t pass by without quieting the mind…
Intensify the “wholeness” that yoga gifts you with!
BEST is to strive for PROGRESS. Perfection will certainly follow…
YOGA certainly happens beyond the mat. Let us know where and how you have “experienced” it ?!

A passionate young woman who has just realized her Iconic Independence, truly by leading a life, on her own – which she has only fantasized in her dreams all through these years, before stepping into a challenging role of this kind (you will get to know what this journey has been!). I have wanted to prove myself, not just in the cyber space, but the treasure-filled stage of life as well. Ask me to whom I wanted to prove? It was just to myself and not to anyone else. I for one slide into the shoes offered to me on a daily basis by the All-Pervasive! Whatever that might be! I also want to be an active player all through the blissful years that is showered and the ones that I am yet to be presented with! I am full of life and values and wish to re-create the meaning of this ‘journey undertaken’ – not just through the mere survival and existence, but by the richness of resilient thoughts to LIVE and THRIVE every moment that flashes by!
