U talkin to – My Body?

Margaret Kruszewska
Since I had to return home before completing a full 10 days of Anusara thought I'd just complete my comments with some follow-up notes -- about one of my favorite puzzles in yoga practice- the male authority body (as renown teacher "expert") instructing female student bodies. (more…)

Day 1: Sweat Yoga

Margaret Kruszewska
MS_Bikram_day1.jpgI've signed up for that ultimate marketing savvy yoga class offer -Bikram's 10 classes for $10 for 10 days. In case you haven't heard what Bikram yoga classes are about; room temperature is kept at 105 degrees and it's all about the sweating. Now I'm not a big fan (no pun intended!) of a lot of hot air (pun intended!). I can barely withstand a couple of minutes in a sauna cause it...

I've often repeated this idea while teaching near-capacity classes because it applies to the attitude and state of mind a yoga student cultivates that eventually becomes more important than learning which foot to place where in asana. Truth be told, conditions are rarely just right, usually you don't have the time,...

Where I Look is What I See

Margaret Kruszewska
There is an Indic wisdom that goes: "Where the hand goes, the glance follows,  Where the glances lead, the mind follows,  Where the mind goes, there the mood follows  Where the mood goes, there is “rasa” born."  Rasa is the juice of life, the essence, that which moves us - to adore, to grieve, to love, to revolt, to embrace - to be moved because we recognize it as the actual passion of our wanting to...
