Fall yoga practice

Posted on 4 October, 2015 at 19:50
Because Yoga is rooted in Hindu mythology, I like to link stories about the Gods and Goddesses who gives us inspiration for our practice. Where I live in the North West Fall presents itself with showers, winds and then full on rain. It is not cold yet it is no longer warm, the sun has waned and the light has faded. The Goddess Durga is known to be the mother of the universe, she goes by  many names and avatars. She has many arms to protect her devotees from all corners of the universe, and many weapons to call on each in itself symbolizes our abilities. She embodies both the male and female self (Shakti) she travels mightily on the back of a lion. Who would not want this powerful being to become the inspiration for a fiery Fall practice. As the days shorten and the nights become colder, as simple beings we crave hibernation, and begin to fold in onto ourselves. Using Durga as the inspiration we can learn that success is not certain (the symbol of the unopened lotus) and that knowledge is but applied perception (the sharpened sword) On our mats this fall these two simple bits of offerings can bring us to our mats humble and without expectation. Do  not forget to smile. Namaste
