パタンジャリのヨーガ・スートラ1章14節 ―エドウィン・ブライアント


このスライドショーの写真は、2018年SHIZEN ヨガスタジオで毎週行われた練習で撮られたものです。このインストラクターの練習時間は私たちにとって、互いにシェアし、学び、教え、触発しあえる、とても貴重な時間です。そして、しばしば、自身のティーチングの源ともなり、SHIZEN ヨガスタジオの精神がそこに宿っているのです。

It is better to aim high and miss, than to aim low and hit.- Les Brown

Practice becomes firmly established when it has been cultivated uninterruptedly and with devotion over a prolonged period of time.
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 1.14- Edwin Bryant

Yoga is not something intended for a few months, or years but for a lifetime. The challenge in yoga is not stiff joints or tight muscles but to establish a regular practice and then to sustain it over the long term. The enthusiasm we begin with soon wanes. Like a fire it must be tended to and fed to keep from burning out. Sometimes the fire burns even and steady. More frequently we need to add new kindle, to stoke the dying embers to keep the fire of our practice going. Now is the time to feed the fire of our enthusiasm by reaching high, thinking big and envisioning a dream to really challenge ourselves. Lets look forward to the mistakes we will make and learn from, and to the unexpected surprises we will encounter along the way to further cultivate our practice and propel it forward into the new year ahead.

The slide show photos are taken from some of the SHIZEN instructors weekly practices over the year 2018. Our instructors practice time is a precious time for us to share, learn, teach and  inspire each other. It is often the source of our teaching and the spirit of yoga found at SHIZEN Yoga Studio.

From all of us at SHIZEN, we wish you an inspirational new year!
