Ashtanga Yoga (intro class)

About This Class

1 Hour Ashtanga Yoga (intro class).

Yoga with Lesley Fightmaster I had many requests for this class. Thank you to Dimple Patel, Heidi James, Emma-Lee Durrant, Anusha Yadav and Ree Lestaree. :-)

Here is the opening chant:

Om

Vande Gurunam Charanaravinde

Sandarshita Svatma Sukava Bodhe

Nih Sreyase Jangalikayamane

Samsara Halahala Mohashantyai

 

Abahu Purushakaram

Shankhacakrsi Dharinam

Sahasra Sirasam Svetam

Pranamami Patanjalim

Om

 

Translation

om

I bow to the lotus feet of the Supreme Guru

which awaken insight into the happiness of pure Being,

which are the refuge, the jungle physician,

which eliminate the delusion caused by the poisonous herb of Samsara (conditioned existence).

 

I prostrate before the sage Patanjali

who has thousands of radiant, white heads (as the divine serpent, Ananta)

and who has, as far as his arms, assumed the form of a man

holding a conch shell (divine sound), a wheel (discus of light or infinite time) and a sword (discrimination).

 

om

 

I hope you enjoy this practice! As always, listen to your body...it speaks to you in sensations. Your practice is your teacher. Stop if you experience pain and push the pause button to rest. Thank you for your loving support and donations! xoxoxoxo, Lesley

If you want to feel better in your body this is the place for you. Because when you practice yoga you feel better! Don't worry if you're not flexible or can't do the poses perfectly. The motto of Fightmaster Yoga is "It's not about the pose". You don't have to be perfect. All you have to do is show up. When you make the decision to take care of yourself, all sorts of amazing things begin to happen. You have more energy. You become more patient. Your outlook on life becomes more positive. And all of these changes you will experience in this yoga journey will begin to affect those around you in ways you never dreamed possible. This practice can bring a loving, positive energy that will spread throughout your world. And as you deepen your yoga practice you will have the opportunity to meet many like minded souls like yourself who are also laying down their mat and doing the work.
When you practice yoga you feel better! Meet me on the mat for a yoga class! Yoga can transform every area of your life.
