"I imagine when we're doing our practice and we're focusing on breath, focusing on the sensations - breath is a sensation -, in the body, in the asana then we're strengthening that same muscle that lets us build our lives to allow for more practice.
Where that leads to is a meditation. How that happens there's differents techniques. But when moments of concentration are strong together seriously meditation happens.
So you're applying your attention to whatever it is - to your relationship or to any sensation - and then you're letting it be as it is: that's equanimity so non reactiveness.
When we do our practice on the matt it's almost like you put yourself into a trance by doing this nice, calm, even breath. And so sensation comes up, you know, like the feeling of a forward bend or your hands on the floor or your gaze towards your nose or your navel and you just watch, you just try to create dispatch in the mind. And then again that's what you're trying to carry outside into all your experiences as well. So one half of it is being able to watch and the other half is this sort of allow, allowing it to happen, non reactive state of mind, equanimity."
De David Robson, um canadense que ensina muito, mas muito mais do que ashtanga em sua escola. Porque ashtanga é muito, muito mais do que um tipo intenso de yoga.
[maria rita kehl coloca miguilim na psicanálise, eu coloco na ashtanga. é brincadeira, óbvio, mas a verdade é que seria difícil não associar tanto aprendizado ao que acontece na minha vida - seja literatura, sejam fatos reais, sejam vivências internas]
