And there are many levels of answer to this question. Can be called nationality, gender, profession, last resort, any personal quality. And most people are satisfied with this explanation, creating in their minds a certain image of themselves. And, it would seem, all is well, but the problem is that in the material world everything is changeable. And not only in the physical, but also in the psychological sphere. And when in a person’s life there are some radical changes and created in his mind the image of ” I ” is destroyed, it causes cognitive dissonance, and even plunges a person into depression and shock. Moreover, even without any serious upheaval, the personality of man is constantly changing, like a river — some tendencies of the mind fade, others, on the contrary, appear.

Ashtanga yoga with Lino Miele

July 7-9, I was fortunate enough to participate in the practice of Ashtanga Yoga, in Haapsalu, at a summer camp with Lino Miele.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (part 2)

Vinyasa
Vinyasa is a way of synchronizing breathing and movement. There is one breathing cycle per movement. For all asanas, a certain amount of vinyasas is established.
The purpose of vinyasa is internal purification. Breathing and movements performed simultaneously with asanas cause the blood to become hot, or, as Sri K. Pattabhi Jois says, “make the blood boil.” Stagnant thick blood is dirty and causes various diseases in the body. The heat produced by yoga purifies the blood and makes it fluid so that it can circulate without difficulty. The combination of asanas with movement and breathing allows blood to freely reach all joints, taking away pain from the body. In case of insufficient circulation, pain occurs. Heated blood also passes through all internal organs, removing impurities and diseases that are eliminated from the body through sweat during practice. Continue reading
