Create a Foundation for the New

Anusara | By Elena Brower on Nov 01 2011
A slightly more active sequence, with a focus creating a foundation of serenity, for magnetizing a new life, a new project, or a new relationship. Based on chapter 2, verse 65 of the Bhagavad Gita, from Dr. Douglas Brooks' translation entitled Poised for Grace, cultivate a base of calm and rest your mind there. Mellow standing poses to stimulate circulation throughout your abdomen, a seated hip opener, legs up the wall (Viparita Karani), meditation and savasana.

    I loved this sequence after a week off my mat and a few days of travelling with flight dehydration and sore muscles from stagnation. It was gentle but stimulating and exactly a gentle practice to reinject some calm. Thanks!

    As someone who has faced multiple challenges with fertility I was hoping to find a class on yogaglo that was meant for before prenatal. These poses are something I can practice every day. Resting my anxieties, doctors opinions, and test results on a bed of serenity is an image that will stick with me. I actually picture a long bed of puffy clouds and when I place my fears on this, they seem to melt a bit, and they do not seem as heavy. Thank you Elena.

    Thank you so much for this beautiful class Elena. I loved the idea of resting on the bed of my serenity and will use that image as I go through my day and teach a yoga class this weekend. Even though I am only able to take your classes through yoga glo (and thank goodness for yoga glo), I feel you are on of my greatest teachers. With love and gratitude-Kate Crawford

    I can confirm the effectiveness of yoga for fertility purposes. As a fellow teacher, I worked with a group of women in Los Angeles who coincidently all became pregnant within 6 months of each other. This was ironic because it was not a fertility class and none of the students were trying to get pregnant. Only later, did I find out that many of my approaches and asana choices were being used for fertility yoga. At the moment, I was just offering them sequences and community exercises which I intuitively thought would best support their well being.

    To make speak further about the effectiveness of these practices, one student had had artificial insemination multiple times to achieve her first pregnancy 6 years earlier and another was on birth control at the time. Needless to say these were a complete, but welcome surprises. The "yoga babies" are thriving and turning 3 years old soon. So open up ladies and you may get a beautiful surprise! Excellent work Elena.
