A message to your YogaDownload students: Thank you to all the YogaDownload students for your positive AND constructive feedback. It is my joy to inspire you and theme on subjects that make you process and go a little deeper within. And when you offer suggestions for improvement, I receive them as I'm always looking to grow as a yoga teacher. I love YDL because of the diversity of teachers on the site. Not everyone will identify with my style of vinyasa yoga or with my combination yoga and sculpting classes, but there will be another great teacher on the site that speaks to them! I encourage you to try styles that may be new to you as they could speak to you in different seasons of life.

Featured Teacher: Mark Morford

How does yoga make you a better person?: One of the biggest misconceptions on the spiritual path is that yoga is going to somehow going to improve you or make you a happier person. The problem with this equation is that we come to yoga with something we want to improve ourselves with. If we come to it from a place of feeling broken or i’m not already a good person. I’m lacking something. I’m screwed up somehow and I need the external thing to make me complete. This mode, this way of operation is doomed to fail, right. If you come to yoga or any spiritual practice from a place of deeply aligned, plugged in, wholeness, fullness and then yoga seems to call you to as a practice to enrich or enliven or illuminate that practice or that deep connection, that seems sustainable. You don’t become a better person. You become a more aligned, connected, authentic person, perhaps, through practice. That’s all it is.

March Teacher of the Month - Shy Sayar

Posted on 2/29/2016 by YogaDownload .com in Yoga Inspiration Shy Sayar Tantravaya Yoga Therapy

A message to my students: Master the basics. Do not be seduced by fancy shapes and complex movements. Slow down. There is unimaginable depth to the simplest of yoga gestures, and rushing - both the rushing to more "advanced" practices, and the rushing through each individual gesture - always results in delaying our progress and stunting our growth. If you observe beginning qigong practitioners, they perform large physical gestures to move vital energy through the body and through space; however, if you watch the great masters, they hardly move at all - but the result is infinitely profound. It is just so with yoga - the more advanced the practice, the more subtle; and the deeper one's realization, the more simple it reveals itself to be, and to have always been. So refrain from succumbing to the temptation of the external - dive deeply into each gesture and every single breath, and realization will surely come more quickly.
