Thank you, Tina Turner, for recording this sacred chant and I send prayers for your own healing and for us all to be at peace while we heal, live, take actions for ourselves and make compassionate and kind deeds for others and as we transition. Namaste
I am grateful to my favorite Yoginis who share Hatha Yoga with me for their commitment to their practice, our friendship and the wisdom that is shared. I feel enriched by our yoga asanas, kriya, pranayama and, savasana is complete, we move to the table to share tea. In these few moments of sipping tea, offered as nectar to keep the yogic vibrations to continue to spread cellularly in the next hours, so often these lovely Yoginis share the “good stuff” that they have collected. Yesterday I learned about a Podcast, “On Being” with Krista Tippett, so I have posted it here for you to enjoy. When I listened to my first episode I heard mentioned a notion to consider “Dinner as Spiritual Technology” and I was delighted to have these words organized in a new way that is exciting to explore with family, friends, Yoginis and more.
You may want to subscribe to have a positive outlet. Another valuable Podcast that I learned a couple years ago is “The Moth.” You may like to follow through YouTube and/or as an App on your mobile device. I hope to keep collecting positive media similar to these to nurture myself and to offer as a respite for others when they are overwhelmed and may enjoy some good stuff. Special thanks to Ada, Nellie and Binita, Namaste OM

Here’s a short article and video from Sadhguru that helps us understand that we should not be too focused on our physical limitations but rather submit totally to being in our sadhana/yoga practice. This is so reassuring for us aging Yoginis who are dedicated to our sadhana! The Blessings are constant in different ways at different points in our lives. Thanks Sadhguru for your wisdom and for sharing with us and thanks for the Isha Foundation and volunteers that deliver so much media as virtual Darshan with us. Namaskaram.

This Guide from Sadhguru shares the”powerful possibility that asanas represent, and explains that they are a means of creating a body that can download the cosmos.” Thanks again to Sadhguru and the Isha Volunteers for sharing this authentic information about classical hatha yoga from India that is so much missing in the West. It is my hope on this Most Auspicious Day and Night of Mahashivrathri that more yoga practitioners find their way to appreciate and honor the real yoga from India with a humble approach of surrender, Shambo, OM Namah Shivaya OM Shanti Shanti Shanti OM.
