Participation Guidelines

Following are the guidelines which I suggest we follow…

  • Please post all comments, questions and feedback of a public nature in the comments section of this post.  This way all will benefit from the discussion.  Feel free to ask questions or discuss issues, as that is one of the main reasons for this particular class format.  Of course, you are free to email me as well if you would like the discussion to not be public.
  • If you like, you can indicate with a comment that you have completed your daily session.  Could be as short as “did it”, or of course could be questions, issues or more detailed feedback.  The hardest part with a daily yoga and meditation practice is establishing consistency and regularity and I think having to acknowledge that you completed your daily sadhana (spiritual work) will help in facilitating that.  In addition, your comments could inspire others as well. 
  • I will post all information regarding the class in the comments section below as well, so please check periodically for updates.
  • Before starting your daily yoga and meditation session, take a moment and tune in to your higher self for guidance and protection.  At the end of every session, visualize yourself and the world as you would like it to be.
  • Do the best you can and modify the class as you require.  It is more important to do something, than be overwhelmed or not do anything at all.
  • I wish you all a wonderful learning and transforming experience.

    Hello Anmol,
    god bless u for providing us guidence! I am glad to have someone to guide me and clear my doubts.I have been doing dhyana since a few weeks. I felts fast jerks in my body and without any long effort, I start seeing various colours mainly red, yellow and violet and magenta but i don’t see any flower with petals.I am still the same, no change in my nature or behaviour.I am i still on the way of enlightenment? How can I know if any of my chakra is opened? All the colors I see are visible in shambhavi mudra. I am having a feeling of heaviness in my forehead. But i don’t hear or vision something beyond the limit of a common man.While I am in dhaya I can listen to every voice around me but without being disturbed or distracted, contrary to what I had heard that in this state one is completely lost. I start seeing colors within 1 min and it seems as if it is easy for anyone to see. While doing dyana at night I don’t see any color at all as if it was only beacause of closing eyes after watching the sunlight.I still feel the same little being. Does opening of chakras happen one by one from no 1 to 7 or it can be random like 1,5,3 etc.? While in dhayana I keep talking to my lord or singing bhajans in heart and sometimes feel like dancing but can’t wake up to continue the immense pleasue I attain in dhayana.I don’t feel any change in me but only a pleasure beyond explication the same i feel in pooja archana which makes me doubt if I am walking toward Gayana or it’s just Bhakti.Please halp to understand better.
    Thanks again for ur guidance. JAi shri ram!

    Dear Tarah

    I used to meditate a lot, and am getting back to it. My memory of it is that my legs would fall asleep in lotus pose on a zafu cushion. I think that eventually i was able to sit longer and longer without them going to sleep. I do think it is valuable to continue to sit for your prescribed length of time, even if the circulation abates, so that the body does not control you with it’s complaints, but you are, instead, absorbed enough in the practice that you are not disturbed by this or any OTHER physical complaint that the body comes up with….and it will! The egoical aspects of the subconscious want to dominate your activities and distract you, and can stimulate physical disturbances so as to do so. With practice, you will become the master by just letting them pass and die down passively, not by fighting or resisting them. Also, avoid moving during meditation, this can stimulate more varieties of disturbance and re-activate activity in the brain and body.

    Peace!

    Hi there,

    Ive been struggling a bit with the meditation as my legs start to go to sleep and i get a bit uncomfortable after a while. Do you recommend that I try to meditate sitting in a chair or should I persist with sitting on the floor? i.e. is there a special benefit to sitting on the floor as opposed to a chair and is getting over the discomfort part of the beneficial nature of the meditation?

    Thanks very much

    Yes, the hard part about such practice is going to be the consistency, and the benefits and enjoyment will certainly help in that regard :-).

    Dear Alythia,

    Great to hear of your experience with Eagle Pose. I will keep this in mind the next time I teach this pose, and suggest to the students to use your technique, as I know many of them have trouble with Eagle Pose as well :-).

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Best,
    Anmol

    This is my first day doing this yoga set (week 1). It was amazing. I am practising at the beginner level and I found the most difficult pose was the eagle pose when suddenly my conciousness opened a little and I realized that I could be “like” the eagle and imagined that I was soaring and that I was being held up by the air, this changed my frown of concentration into a smile and gave me just enough endurance to finish the minute. After I completed the meditation, my body began to feel balanced and warm, I had a slight, pleasant tingling in the back of my cervical vertibrae, from the tuck pose, I think. All in all, very enlightening.
