I have an intense love of hatha yoga techniques, I pray the day I die is the day I give up my asana based hatha yoga practice. I aim to enjoy the benefits of a life long marriage between asana and intensity. In the years ahead I aim to be with my friends the sun salutations, standings, forward and back bends, and upside down praying in shoulder stand. For inspiration I call to mind the asana giant of the century- BKS Iyengar. He has thankfully shown the world that there is no age limit for undertaking tapas in the form of transforming asana and pranayama into prayers and attitudes of soul. I can rejoice in knowing that my body and mind posses an astounding capacity to be involved in a life long, creative study of asana as my primary means of bowing down to my essential nature as Seer.
Twenty years of practice has shown me that longevity in practice comes from emphasizing the relationship between asana and meditation, to me they are one and the same, and working according to this principle will be the best insurance that as I age I will be practicing the method with gusto. The lineage will make more sense and prove to be better suited to addressing your evolving needs if you widen your conception of what meditation and of what asana ought to be and to look like.
