Exerting Effort Where it Isn’t Needed by Abby Bordner

I wondered how often in my life am I exerting effort to make something happen when it’s not actually needed? I can easily go into auto pilot and think I need to keep doing, doing, doing in order to make things happen in my life. I most certainly will exhaust myself with all my efforts but the fact of the matter is that there are situations that don’t require it.

Lessons From Arjuna by Yoganand Michael Carroll

To be a yogi is to embrace the eternal part of us, but we find our eternal self by being present to the little things in our lives that take effort to see. We may language it differently and practice it in a variety of ways, but what makes us yogis is being present with what we find on the mat, experiencing it fully, and then moving on to the next experience.

The Inspired and Inspiring Teacher by Jacci Gruninger

We all know what it is like to be in a class and the teacher says the perfect thing for us in that moment or maybe it was just the right asana, pranayama or meditation practice.

Sometimes it might be planned and other times it might just happen spontaneously and you don’t even consider what it was or how it happened.

Everyday Balance by Lily Gretz

All day long, I carry a backpack, filled with a laptop, a thick notebook, my headphones, my keys, my water bottle, some snacks, and usually a sweatshirt for when it gets cold. All day long, I carry this bag from my apartment, to class, to lunch, to more classes, to my favorite study spots, and then back home again at the end of the day. By the end of the day, my back and shoulders are tied up in multiple knots and my neck just wants to take a break. But when I do ragdoll, letting my shoulders and arms lay limp as they dangle in front of my legs, my back loosens, my neck rests, and my body feels balanced once again.

All day long

Begin Again by Lee Furey

In a recent poll conducted by Pranakriya’s Board, we asked members to think of their first strong bonding experience with Pranakriya yoga, a moment when they knew the relationship was real at a visceral level, then offer a few words to encapsulate that connection for a computerized word collage. One of the recurring phrases from participants, which showed up larger in the result, was “A PLACE FOR MYSELF.”
