Samadhi Rush Episode 174// Lovingkindness Practice

Dearest Beloved Yoga Family,

Sending you all the love in the world, sweeties. This week has been hard. All of the cracks in our planetary-relationship-vessel are being revealed to us. And I am feeeeeeeling it. And at the same time, I feel so overwhelmed with gratitude for my current situation and lucky in a way that I really and truly never have before. And also like I want to do more, but do not know where to begin. When I feel this way, practicing the metta, or lovingkindness, meditation helps.

News//

I made something for you. I mean this is what it is all about, sweeties. Just Breathe: A Pranayama Course is ready for you to dive in deep. This course is self-paced, full of subtle goodness and ready for you to download. I do hope you’ll join me for this complete pranayama practice. Begin any time. (p.s. special offer for podcast listeners after today’s practice. hint. hint.)

BUY it here.

LOVE you all.

Samadhi Rush Episode 167// Take Care of You

Beloved you,

One of the hardest lessons for me to learn/ know in my bones: just because I can do something doesn’t mean I should do it. As with most of the more subtle work of yoga, this lesson sounds so simple, so obvious on the skin of its surface, but to really know it required so much diving into the belly of my practice. For so many years, I thought doing the most hard, most punishing things possible was the most admirable way to live. And I pushed and punished myself like a champion (of course). There were murmurs, however, deep within the pulsing blood in my veins, however, that even though I could definitely do hard things, maybe not doing them all the time was a fuller, richer, more wholesome way to live (those words don’t quite do the feeling justice, but such is the limit of language, you know?).

Fall is the time when I really and truly re-commit to the care of my-self. It’s a fast, dry, windy time, both atmospherically and energetically. Through the lens of Ayurveda, the Indian science of wellness, I tend toward the dosha Vata (windy, flighty, dry– in body and energy), and the combination of me plus Vata Autumn can lead to too much everything, resulting in a pile of exhaustion after major burnout. (Anyone else feel this way?) Every fall, then, this opportunity to instead choose to care for myself arises. And I take it. I choose to experience exactly what I am feeling, and to do the things I have found to nourish rather than deplete myself this time of year.

We talk about that a bit in this episode. And we make some tiny movements toward a therapeutic head-stand.

(Later this week, I’ll be sharing my tips for nourishing through the dry, windy fall in my newsletter. Sign up here to receive that and so much other nourishment. It’s a twice monthly newsletter, so I won’t clog up your inbox, promise.)

To those of you who joined in The At-Home Retreat: THANK YOU! My greatest joy is making useful things for people I adore. Thanks for letting me do that. If you have notes from this experience, be sure to email me: love@samadhirush.com. To join us next time, sign up here.

LOVE you.

Samadhi Rush Episode 165// Do Less Than You Think You Should

Sweet Beloveds, hi!

So happy to be here together with another episode of Samadhi Rush. This week’s episode of the podcast features a yin yoga practice recorded LIVE at my monthly “Stretch & Sketch” event at Yoga Refuge here in Portland, Oregon. At stretch and sketch, students may practice yin yoga or draw those who are practicing, or both. It is really a wonderful group, and the mantra that guides us “we lean on each other; we grow together”– really feels right in my bones. So happy you can be there, too, through this podcast. Hope you LOVE it.

LOVE you.

P.S. ALL DONORS receive a 20 minute SKYPE SESSION with me this month! (Details on how to join the donor club below. xoxo)
