Enter the Lioness: Yoga Martial Arts

I embarked on Yoga Teacher training last spring and as we enter into Module 2, I can really feel the impact on my inner psyche – it seems a beautiful lioness is emerging!

My spiritual training had left me a little ‘up in the clouds’ at times!…  So this yoga practice and teacher’s training is the perfect adjunct to my spiritual work to create a more balance, grounded whole that I can offer to others.

Here are some pictures form my yoga journey so far…

Now that we have entered Module 2, our practice takes on a more active stance with focus on standing postures, endurance and strength. I find myself becoming more and more grounded and challenged to be physically and mentally strong.

I see yoga as quite beautiful and graceful…  and powerful and protective:  the ham in me loves to express my inner magical child with whimsical postures like butterfly and deer pose, while my inner lioness likes to dare with her indomitable ‘don’t mess with me’ attitude in goddess, warrior or dragon pose.

Here are some pics from doing yoga at my previous retreats:

I’ve always loved movement, including dance, and more recently Nia (choreographed dance/fitness), and our extended ‘Yoga Martial Arts’ training which adds that other dimension of practical power and higher consciousness that is so rare in the yoga world.

Yoga can be very zen, and it can be very very powerful!

We are only half way through our YTT training and already I feel that it is well worth the ride…

I see my life growing in this direction, with the goal of being an active and happy yogi well into old age…

And if I get to share and teach this along with my other gifts, well, that’s icing on the cake!
