As of this fall, I’m not teaching yoga. I took a full-time teaching job (science), that required that I close my studio and move my residence. These days, I’m enjoying being an after-work yoga student, something I plan to write about soon!

Comment on The Emotions of Backbends by Ali http://yogalikesalt.com/2010/01/21/the-emotions-of-backbends/#comment-567 Wed, 04 Jan 2012 17:55:25 +0000 http://yogalikesalt.wordpress.com/?p=113#comment-567 I love back bends but a little while later often feel reflective and blue and sometimes quietly tearful – it passes and obviously needs to come out. Will look up the books mentioned by Jane.

Comment on No Ass-Kicking, Please. by yogi fari http://yogalikesalt.com/2011/01/13/no-ass-kicking-for-the-holidays-please/#comment-558 Fri, 23 Dec 2011 17:18:28 +0000 http://yogalikesalt.com/2007/12/13/no-ass-kicking-for-the-holidays-please/#comment-558 Love this post! How many times have I had people disappointed in my class because they could not limp out the door? and there is nothing you can do about it, i simply hope they keep coming back and one day it will all click into place. on the flip side though, i have also had a ton of people tell me they appreciate the pace and that they feel things in places they never knew existed! and so, all you can do is practice what you believe to be true and hope they will get it, love it and accept it.

thank you for this post!

namaste.

You are right but in my opinion, this situation holds true for Iyengar students and instructors. I know a handful of yoga instructors, who have hurt themselves in an iyengar class. despite knowing the anatomy and the true philosophy, these teachers were pushed way too far. there is of course nothing wrong with it, it is simply not for everyone.

Namste

I could go right to sleep after if I had to.

Comment on Yoga and Gender by Beth http://yogalikesalt.com/2007/08/13/yoga-and-gender/#comment-551 Fri, 16 Dec 2011 17:37:50 +0000 http://yogalikesalt.com/2007/08/13/yoga-and-gender/#comment-551 Mystical and ancient esoteric teachings of yoga have said that yoga is the manifestation of the body performing postures to heal our chakras. Indian mystics although predominantly men, have also been women. Yoga is a special practice for human beings, to unify mind, body and spirit.

it has nothing to do with gender and everything to do with spiritual evolution and growth.

Yoga is becoming the new gym. Folks want to get “worked” “out”. While our world still invests so heavily in violence, it is not surprising that some students come to yoga to “get their asses kicked”. It’s pretty hard these days to come and say “I want to be nurtured.” Hopefully this will change, but until it does, as teachers we need to help students learn that ass loving is better than ass-kicking.
