Judith L Hanson’s Sunday Saldhana thoughts

Just some notes from JHL:  on teaching and starting and maintaining your own practice.

‘it may be rediscovering the wheel, but I need to do my own practice in order to have a clear channel to describe the experience to my student.”

‘we value doing more than being but they are equally valuable.’

Q:  When should I do yoga?

A:  Only on the days you want to feel good.

Q:  What poses should I do?

A:  The ones you like.

quotes buddha or is it pantanjali?  “the state of equanimity can be achieved by doing whatsoever you find pleasing.”

“If it’s hot be a hot buddha, if it’s cold be a cold buddha.” Observe your nature. Don’t force it.

My take:  although you may want to fret it, you can learn all you want the bottom line is you just have to wait it out.
