Exploring Our Edge

In today’s world of Yoga, exploring our edge is something heard often - but what exactly does that mean? It involves leaving that much loved zone of comfort in order to find real area for growth, having the bravery to peer into into the uncertainty of not knowing yet wanting to discover, whilst testing the limits.

In the legendary ancient Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali, Sutra 2.46 mentions Sthira Sukham Asanam’, ‘Sthira’ meaning unwavering/stability and ‘Sukham’ being comfortable/sweetness. In regards to postures and edge exploration, this can be seen as applying a subtle effort to find that sweet spot right between the ease and the challenge.

Simply to remember with true respect allows us to keep it all sacred.

The Art of Surrender: In Light of the Full Moon

The truth is though, there is so much beauty in surrendering. The art of surrender requires you to get out of your own way and allow life to flow with grace, even though it may not feel or look that graceful at the time.

To do this, you must accept that what you’re holding onto, or what you are resisting, is not working. This requires trust. Trust that perhaps you are being guided in a different direction.
