Turning your asana into your AH-HAsana! By Zak and Josie
In Sanskrit an asana is defined as a body position or series of positions that are done in Meditation and moving asanas encompass coming into the pose, holding the pose and getting out of the pose.
During meditative asana, the position is held longer than in a moving asana.
Without the mind, body and spirit involvement an asana feels “just” and I emphasize “just” feels like an exercise. When we involve the spirit it becomes an awakening! What does it look like when our mind, body, spirit is connected through our asana? When we come into the pose or stretch it can feel easy, fresh and new or it can be uncomfortable in many different unsettling ways.
Why is this? As we hold the position, we allow time to be in stillness and we begin to delve into layers of different areas within ourselves, within our soul and our ego. When we learn to accept, we let go!
When we experience our AH HAsana it can be in the form of an old wound, an emotion or a realization. Whatever it is we are holding onto we awaken and we deal with it. Once we lift the veil we realize what is blocking us from acquiring our true bliss. When we rid of the dark, we allow light to radiate within us. This feeling may resonate when we come out of the pose until we decide to let it go. Once we fully let it go we are able to taste, to feel the sweetness of our true essence, our true self and we feel bliss!!
