Review…the mala - the thread – the beads
The visual is the “mala,” the thread is the “breath,” and the beads are the asana/ vinyasa.
“Thread” each bead with each breath – a continual flow of breath and mindfulness – be present
Practice “ayama” with the inhalations and exhalations are equal in intensity and length
72,000 meridians in the body; breath and movement assist to remove the blockages (gruntis)
Vayu – direction of wind – inhalation (upward) and exhalation (downward)
Move the energy up and down the shusumna nadi - “highway” (the spine)
Practice “sthirabhaga” – strength and grace – peaceful facial features – gentleness
The element of water – fluidity (“control” your movement around challenges/hurdle).
Fluidity – dancing with breath and vibrant energy (feng liu)
