Season 1 - Episode 5

Shiva Yin

35 min - Practice


We are often torn between novelty and stability, mystery and safety, the desire to be in the world and to transcend. All of these contradictions can live together in us. Shiva is the god of contradictions, and Kali's counterpart. He is at once passionate and wild, yet he is known for his meditative and calm aspect. In this practice we'll explore making room for the multitudes within us, opening our joints and spreading out, learning to remain soft and undisturbed through life's many changes. You will feel spacious and quiet.
What You'll Need: Square Bolster, Block

I am definitely sometimes Shiva. The practice was like taking two
Advils; released a lot of morning inflammation, and have always loved that Whitman line...  Here is another that relates—"I too am not a bit tamed—I too am untranslatable" My literary mind loved this practice!
