sahaja vidyodaya

Physical Focus ||  muscular energy + shoulder opening
Energetic Focus || I AM enough. 
Pilgrimage Pose || eka pada malasana, urdhva dhanurasana, parsva bakasana
Class Length || 60-75 min

Instead of placing the burden of proof on your practice to validate any part of you, begin with enough.  This practice is enough, my breath is enough, I am enough.  This goes beyond the machinery of your body alone, this happens on much more subtle levels.  Can you be kind to your body in times of challenge, can you be strong in times of inward reflection?  This surrender to enough can bring about spontaneous awakening (sahaja vidyodaya) where we begin to operate from fullness.  This is aparigraha, a recognition of abundance in the universe and a rising above scarcity.  Enough is not a dirty word - it is inherently generous.
