Hi. Welcome to the first season of Posing. These are my friends, Julie, Winifred, and Matt. Julie's been practicing yoga about seven years. She first started in high school. Lucky! Winifred's been practicing about 12 years, and Winifred and I have been practicing yoga together for maybe about eight years, and Matt's been practicing yoga for about three years, and we've known each other about that same amount, yeah? So we've gathered here to experiment a bit with looking at the postures. One of the difficulties with the yoga postures is it's so easy to assume that there's one correct way, and then to treat them as if they're positions to be achieved or mastered. And the truth of the yoga posture is that one of the ways we understand it is asana, and asana means literally to sit, to sit within oneself. And so as we explore these postures throughout our practice, we find that the posture becomes an expression more of who we are than something that we're trying to be. And so I've invited my three friends here today to help me show that how a posture might look just simply depends a lot on how you're put together, what mood you might be in, and what specifically you might be exploring. So thank you my friends for being here, thank you for being here, and so as we move into this experiment together, please let us know how it's working. Are we showing what's helpful? Are we not showing what's helpful? What would you like to know? So namaste.

The Problem....

It's late but I am beginning to see, imagine in some dirty dusty old village , or a hideaway maybe in asecret place , he/she comes to practice, to explore to experiment with this ....having been formaly intitiated in some tent years ago by his Guru, that it is like some pranic alchemical experiment , the forms disintegrate back into a vast nebula like voidness at the centre his being , resonant with possibilty beyond the mind .

So here we are late 20th Century man , doing what ?
Having read , seen and imitated others from a mental space we try to conjure up..what ...ummm

How can we regain that original sense of Yoga ?
Kira Sloane
Dearest Richard. It seems that Yoga already is and always has been. The practices can help us increase our capacity and tolerance for this Truth. xok
Richard P
Yes I agree but what was prior to Yoga ?
Richard P
I feel you have not really understood the gist of what I am saying.

What do you mean ?
