"Klesas são as aflições que nos atingem provocando dor e sofrimento. Aquilo que nos tira do equilíbrio. A ignorância de que a fonte da felicidade se encontra em nós mesmos leva-nos a buscá-la fora, longe.
Pode-se dizer que a raiz de todo o sofrimento vem de avydia – o conhecimento errôneo ou a ignorância de quem nós realmente somos. A confusão que surge desse conhecimento errôneo dá origem aos demais klesas – ou seja: dessa falta de conhecimento da verdadeira natureza de nós mesmos, surge a identificação com aquilo que não somos - asmita. Assim, pensamos que somos um corpo denso e nos apegamos às formas que nos cercam. Dessa identificação com a forma densa vem raga - o apego às coisas que julgamos importantes para nossa felicidade – coisas que nos dão prazer, que nos dão a impressão de estarmos seguros. Pode ser o dinheiro, o poder, uma pessoa, um cargo, uma profissão, etc. Da mesma forma, buscamos nos afastar daquilo que pode ameaçar nosso bem estar e nossa felicidade – dvesa -, assim, desenvolvemos aversão por algumas pessoas, situações ou coisas.
Funcionamos no binômio prazer-dor ou apego-aversão. Isso tudo gera o medo de perder aquilo que julgamos ser o objeto da nossa felicidade, gera a insegurança. Esse medo faz com tentemos nos proteger das possíveis perdas, nos cercando de barreiras. Quando permanecemos nessa forma de funcionar – nos apegando ao que gera prazer e nos afastando do que causa dor, também ficamos atados ao sentimento de insegurança - abhinivesa. No fundo, desejamos intensamente a continuidade do que é conhecido...dos padrões que construímos para sobrevivermos. Se utilizarmos o Yoga para reduzir avidya, todos os outros klesas vão perdendo sua força. Surge uma clareza que nos proporciona paz." Texto da professora Marcia Becker inspirado nos ensinamentos do livro: O coração do Yoga - T.K.V Desikachar

I had to learn how to fight.
For my self.
It was exhausting and many time I thought I could not make it but It always worked out.
With faith and the support of those who really care about me I was always able to find within my self the courage to not give up.
Yoga helped too.
The more I listened to my body during my practice the more I felt a force inside of me was the product of two directly opposing energies that were colliding in perfect combination to create me.
An imperfect duality that kept me alive and it still does.
I fired up my physical practice working on inversions and arm balances and felt connected to a fierceness and strength in my core. I could not avoid moments of surrender in forward bends and hip opening poses. I felt my muscles tense around a pose and learnt to understand that the more intensely I tried to hold on to a posture, the further it slipped away from me.
I learnt to surrender.
I learned what truly means to be present.
To be strong.
Somebody able to fail and transform that failure in something beautiful:
Love for my broken self. *

Today's @yogafeature by @the_exit_strategy
Many of you asked how to prepare for locust pose and how to enter this asana.
Preparation: this asana is intense and requires quite a remarkable physical effort so make sure you properly warm up and prepare your spine both in its lower part (with cobra pose) and upper part (with puppy pose)
Execution: start in prone position, with legs and feet close to each other. Place the arms under your body closed to make a fist but thumbs straight and placed on the floor (this is the option I prefer but alternatively you can place the arms along your body with palms facing down the floor). Engage your back muscles and glutei, raise your legs by pushing the arms against the floor. Move in a controlled way and keep the position until it’s comfortable. Then, slowly and again in a controlled way, go down to the initial position. Just make sure you have enough clearance from the wall 😁
If you do it this way it’s less scary, because you’re not jumping into an unknown position but you’re moving step by step and can come back whenever you want.
Benefits: this asana reinforces the back muscles and glutei and tones abdominal organs like liver, stomach and gut.
Enjoy your practice and practice safely! ❤️

Trough the movement of my body, finally, after many years lost in wonder, I was able to reclaim my soul.
I surrendered to discomfort in postures designed to be bliss.
I felt vulnerable and open in backbends.
I redirected frustration to strength and I learned to use the power of my mind as my muscles trembled. Through my practice, I began to understand that duality, vulnerability and strength was integral to my identity.
Through this understanding I was able to stop fighting the shadows of my past and by doing so I started to fully live my life.
When we breath, dance, when we lay in silence on our mat or when we travel from one pose to another during our practice we let go of all the boundaries that our mind stored in our muscles and joints and, in the most innocent and genuine way we bare our soul to the world.
We become present without hiding anything about ourselves.
We express all those feeling that normally we repress and we share our raw truth with no shame or fear.
In those instant between an inhale and an exhale we finally become who we are supposed to be.
Alive and vibrant : a poetry in motion, the highest form of living art.
Thank you @nataliaesthetic for making shapes with me.
