19 Jan 2015 » Orchestrating your practice
When we practice yoga asanas, the need for power is quite obvious as we are trying to hold a difficult pose, or even an easy one, but for longer than usual. In our quest for more strength (which is worthwhile) it is easy to lose sight of the benefits of balancing that power with a sense of softness, an element of refinement. How do you strike that balance between power and refinement in your practice? Through the breath.
12 Jan 2015 » Minimum and maximum edges
You have probably heard a yoga teacher say something like "come to your edge, but don't overstep it". The place that is usually called "the edge" is the point along the stretch continuum beyond which you are in danger of injuring yourself, and beyond which your awareness deteriorates into an obsessive focus on whatever body part is experiencing the greatest intensity. Using yoga teacher Erich Schiffmann's terminology, I want to refine this concept by calling this place your maximum edge, and talk about another place along the stretch continuum, your minimum edge, which is the place where you first feel a stretch. Becoming aware of your minimum edge will help you come into poses more mindfully and more deeply, and reduce your chance of injury at the same time.
