ABHYASA - Diligent, focused practice -

"Abhyasa is a disciplined, persistent effort to remain focused. This focus can occur during physical exercise (such as asana), breath work (pranayama), meditation (samyama)... Abhyasa is the effort required to maintain a focus, and it is to be done continuously over a long period of time, with sincerity and care. Abhyasa involves a committed effort to maintain your chosen practice long enough to reap its award. Abhyasa along with Viveka (keen discernment) is a primary practice that is fundamental to all progress. Abhyasa along with not clinging to external objects (vairagya) is necessary to calm the mind-heart... Consistent and persistent effort, along with the ability to not let external events throw us off center, is bound to diminish the thoughts and emotions distracting our heart-mind."

From "The Mastery of Consciousness" Sutra # 33 By Tapasyogi Nandhi

Magic of Now 

in multiplying the seeds of intent is stillness sustained incubating the now
to its magical reality,
boredom to excitement,
thought-whirl to focus,
void-mind to the flow,
in the 'flow' is the evolved grace of cosmic union,
in seeking fulfillment of each breath, time dissolves to timelessness,
as the spirit realm of oneness expands the now.
in the magical now, siva be.
be the prophet. aum name sivaya

Yin Yoga is complimentary to more active styles of practice. Passive poses, held for an extended period of time, invite a deep journey into the body and mind, accessing emotions and connective tissues skimmed over by quicker movements.
