Just ended another 21 day hatha bliss program today, the fourth edition of this program for 2017. I always feel quite overwhelmed at the end of any program, and this one specifically, guiding the students through a nearly four hour session of all five Isha Hatha Yoga practices without a break – Upa Yoga, Angamardana, Surya Kriya, Surya Shakti and Yogasanas.
Firstly, it is such a privilege and pleasure to be a part of the journey of these individuals, and to watch their transformation unfold over the three weeks; from the struggles – waking up and being here on time, staying up in shavasana, or just getting by without any injuries – to the joys – getting further into the postures, experiencing higher energy levels, or overcoming negative patterns.
Secondly, for me, with each program, I discover an opportunity to upgrade myself a bit; whether being gentler in my speech, being more aware in transmitting these sacred tools, or connecting to a higher intelligence whose grace is constantly guiding and manifesting unimaginably beautiful situations every single day.
The power these practices hold for personal transformation is an unfathomable mystery and their efficiency in getting one closer to their ultimate wellbeing shows what a remarkably sophisticated technology Hatha Yoga is.
It is an incredibly rewarding experience, being an Isha Hatha Yoga teacher, and I am eternally grateful to Sadhguru for bringing me onto this path.
