My most beloved teacher, Angela Farmer, when asked in an interview why she went on to practice yoga, said this,
” I wanted to pray with all my body.”
This is how I feel when I practice yoga.
Similarly, during a rather intense and joyous practice with Shiva Rea (in my experience all yoga with Shiva is intense and joyous), I came through a meditation with this mantra:
“My body is my prayer. Everything I do is sacred.”
This is my yoga. And this is what I bring to my teaching. When I come to my mat, I come to the Sacred. The Earth beneath me. The Space around and above me. The Fire within me. The Water running through my body. The Air that I breathe. It is all connected. I am all that is.
Practicing Asana with these elements in mind and connecting deeply and mindfully through breath, I feel we can reconnect to Source, to Spirit, and to our own bodies as the sacred temple that they are.
“I would make of myself a temple.
I mean I would cease pretending I am something else.”
