Yoga is not an ancient myth buried in oblivion.
It is the most valuble inheritance of the present.
It is the essential need of today and the culture of tomorrow.
-Swami Satyananda Saraswati
Today has been long and intensive, but extremely fascinating. When you are really into something you stay alert no matter what. Along with 16 other yoginis I joined Jodi Boones workshop Yoga & Ayurveda. A well-informed and experienced yoga teacher has guided us to the healing knowledge of Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga.
I have today got a deeper understandning about the doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha. It has been an unusual yogasession, studying other yoginis tongues, eyes, nails, hair and pulse. I would never had believed that my "weaknesess" would show up on my tongue. On the contrary I understand that the nails, hair and pulse restore everything and work as the mirror of the body.
After all ayurvedic lecture and practical testing it felt wonderful to spread out the toes on the yogamat and set in for a strengthening, grounding and calming Vatayoga lesson.
The best part after today's workshop is that I am more sure about me doing the right thing. Getting this confirmed just pushes me further ahead in the right direction. The best bonus is that the session continues tomorrow.
