Lessons from Lino

Last month I was lucky enough to spend 2 weeks practising with Lino Miele in Kovalam, India.  What a couple of weeks it was!  Not only was it my first time in India but it was my first time practising intensively for 2 weeks and I am so grateful that I had nothing else to do after practice except bob about in the sea and eat curry. 629 more words

Asana is the Third Limb

Asana is a steady, comfortable posture.

Asana are the postures associated with yoga, such as downward facing dog, warrior I, and child’s pose.  While most people think of these postures when they think of yoga, Patanjali only refers to asana in three of the yoga sutras. 228 more words
