Ganesha's Longing for Sweetness

40 min - Practice


Obstacles dissolve when we drop into the sweetness of the present moment available in the body. Julia begins with a centering meditation before moving through a sweet flow of standing postures. We invite the qualities of Ganesha guide us -- his big soft generous belly to help ground us and his wide open listening ears to help tune us inward. His love of sweets represents his and our yearning to taste Sat Chit Ananda (Truth, Consciousness, Bliss). Without much exertion, you will feel more spacious, easy, and free.

Julia, thank you for that practice; it brought me a great deal of energy and peace, and I hope that others are benefiting from it similarly. Your instructions were most helpful, clear and unhurried.

Thank you thank you. Felt so scattered this morning. Now can move into my day feeling rooted to the earth like Ganesh. Lovely.

Thank you Julia - the strap work in the practice was so helpful. I've done this leg over stretch before - adding the strap brought a new experience of it. Thank you for your Bhakti show - I'm learning so much. Blessings sweeter than cupcakes to you!
Ah, thank you dear Beth for your SWEET blessings! Much love to you

Dear Julia ~ such a beautiful practice. This week I’ve been enjoying earthy and Ganesha-related practices found here on Yoga Anytime to compliment Jasmine Tarkeshi’s Chakra course with week one being the root chakra. This class was just the perfect pairing for Muladhara. The only caveat? I now have a wicked craving for cupcakes! 🧁🧁🧁
Jenny I'm laughing! Love the cupcake craving. And so happy for your earthy explorations. Just feeling to share with you a sweet quote from Simone Weil who says "To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul"... enjoy!

So much peace in this practice. Great flow and I was DEFINITELY surprised that you could practice with so many cupcakes by you and not get distracted by them!
Lily A thanks for the laugh!
