This is an important read for all Yoginis and Yogis who practice Hatha Yoga. Thanks to Blogger Jacinta Yoga for writing such an important article. This is about the subtle and most crucial elements of the hatha yoga practice that differentiate the practice from exercise and that many who are new to the practice often miss. Often those who practice the “new American yoga’ tend to morph the practice into a “workout” because these essential awarenesses are not woven into the practice. I really do appreciate Jacinta Yoga for staying within the graces of authentic Indian Hatha Yoga…for somethings ring true in their core form. Indian classical hatha yoga is not a product that is in need of modernization, it is an exact amazing scientific gift for human transformation. If I had seven hundred years more to explore all I could learn from this authentic science it would not be enough. Sadhguru reminds us that there are over 84,000 asanas not because we should do all but for all the different personalities that exist…we are then guided by our teachers who design the particular yoga mix that is best for us. However, the simple basics as reminded to us in this Post are most helpful. Rock steady Yoginis and Yogis – Namaste
