Ustrasana

Camel pose or extending backwards

Ustrasana is a beginner level back extension which is not to be confused with simply bending backwards as the name often implies. The whole idea is to extend and lengthen one’s spine upwards so that it can freely flex without creating any compression or discomfort in the spine.

The ease of performing this asana comes with the softening or lengthening of one’s front thigh muscles. As you go into the posture, avoid pushing the pelvis forwards. Before attempting this exercise, please read the page on bending backwards.

Instruction

Place the feet and knees hip width apart with toes under as in the right image Place the hands on the hips and

Utkatasana

Not for feint hearts

Caution, anyone who has heart problems risks over-straining the heart in this pose and should avoid it.

This asana is often referred to as the chair pose because it resembles the action of sitting. However utkatasana as well as working the legs, also works all the internal structures of the torso and pushes the heart to work more strongly. There are several levels to this exercise, the first is with the feet apart and parallel to each other, the knees bend and the hips drop back but unlike many descriptions, the idea is to hold the arms and torso as upright as possible.

As one sinks into the pose, one’s weight will ideally remain consistent as

Partner Yoga

Moving from Doing together to Being together

Partner yoga has been termed AcroYoga. There are many aspects and methodologies of which the most common is supporting and being supported in the performance of yoga asana. Yet it can also involve meditation and non-contact activities. But all aspects of acroyoga involve body to body and mind to mind communication at a subtle level beyond everyday consciousness.

By practising asana together as for instance in this right image, one develops trust and confidence in one’s partner which in turn fosters a better relationship. Where partners are of similar stature and flexibility, the practice is generally more balanced but when one is more supple, more stronger or of a different stature, some of

A divine madman (1837–1911)

Sri Bamakepha ThakurIt is thought that this picture is a copy from the wall of Sri Ramakrishna’s room at Dakshineswar

His unconventional behaviour was a worry to his mother and his neighbours, yet he came to be held in great reverence in

Is God Exclusive?

Nature, elements and the energy permeating all is universal

How often do you get the idea that everyone believes that their idea of God is better than someone else’s? Yet fundamentally God has never risen beyond an idea because no identifiable and quantifiable entity as ever arisen in this world who can rightly be called God.

When we try and rationally understand what God might be, most broadly accepted idea is that it is the creative principal that generates all life. Some call God by names like Shiva, Brahma, Vishnu, Allah, others Yahweh, Jesus, Mohammed which all represent masculine aspects. Women are not left out, there are a wide range of goddesses across the eastern world who are curiously

Sufi’s are Not Necessarily Peaceful

Debunking the myth; Sufi’s can be terrorists

Jalaluddin Rumi said; “I looked for God. I went to a temple, and I didn’t find him there. Then I went to a church, and I didn’t find him there. And then I went to a mosque, and I didn’t find him there. And then finally I looked in my heart, and there he was.”

He again said; “A true Lover doesn’t follow any one religion, be sure of that. Since in the religion of Love, there is no irreverence or faith. When in Love, body, mind, heart and soul don’t even exist. Become this, fall in Love, and you will not be separated again.”

So we see Jalaluddin Rumi had his own

Women: Not Feminists

Modern feminism debunked

The dictionary definition of feminism is simply “believing in and working towards the economic, social, and political equality of the genders yet it has gone much further in practise. The modern leftist feminism has become yet another monster in the room.

Feminism has become become more about women dominating and controlling men yet it’s also become another thing to being hijacked by people with strong political views. Under the umbrella of feminism, feminists march on the streets demanding that presidents must go and their view of the world is correct and if you don’t like it, you’d better shut the fuck up because they’re right. But there are all sorts of feminists, some push for equal pay

By Lisa Doyle

This controversial approach to dating has given thousands of single women everything they need to attract romance, intimacy, and a marriage proposal – while answering the question, “Where are all the good men?”

A Surrendered Single doesn’t have to look for Mr. Right – she attracts him.

In her popular workshops, Laura Doyle has taught thousands of accomplished women the principles of The Surrendered Single. They are simple: when you try to control who asks you out, when a man will call, or corner him into a commitment, you drive him away. When you let him woo you instead, tenderness and romance appear.

What is Dharma?

A mystery to those not knowing the essence of life

To get the best from life, you must love life and treat it with love.Via Vogue and lemonade

Dharma is living in accord with life while sustaining what is known and fruitful for all life.

In other words, to know Dharma in its fullness you must know life in its fullness and that is something few people achieve in their lifetimes. Therefore to know Dharma as a layperson without access to the accumulated knowledge of Vedanta requires a relaxation of beliefs and an openness to explore.

To put it simply, Dharma is a way of being in the world that sustains
