Have you ever had a thought that yoga is just not your cup of tea, as you don’t have a flexible body that can fold into a pretzel?
Well, you’re not alone.
I have been teaching yoga for many years now. One out of every three of my students and fellow practitioners has expressed their initial disinterest and fear of yoga because they believed they didn’t have the flexibility or strength for yoga poses.
But yoga is not just about physical flexibility. It’s about the simplicity of the mind, where one can experience union and harmony, peace and joy, and stillness and comfort. To illustrate, I’ve created an easy, simple yoga sequence that anybody can do, designed to be easy and enjoyable, but also to lead you into a first-hand experience of the true depth of yoga.
A Subtle and Powerful Yoga Experience
Sukshma yoga is an excellent sequence that promotes physical energy and mental calm. It is a form of yoga made up of gentle flowing movements that are simple and easy to practice, while remaining both deep and effective.
Sukshma is a Sanskrit word meaning “subtle”—something that is delicate, soft, or not very obvious, but still remains important or deep. This is how Sukshma Yoga is—gentle, and that what it does affects us at a deeper level.
This practice has its roots in ancient yoga, and it is not very known to the most modern yogis in the world today. Thanks to efforts of yogi Dhirendra Brahmachari, who learned Sukshma Vyayama from a great yogi, Maharishi Karthikeya Maharaj of the Himalayas, we have access to these esoteric techniques again.
So grab your yoga mat, and a comfortable small cushion to sit on if you require, and join me for this 1-hour Sukshma and Easy Yoga sequence.
