Lesson 27


*Community yoga Mangawhai

Developing a personal practice .



“Tonight I Can Write… The night wind revolves in the sky and sings”.

— Pablo Neruda.



A few weeks ago I was feeling sad.


So I was coming into my practice with the ought of localize where this sadness was coming from, physically, in which part of my body I was feeling it the most?.


In the process of this inquiry, narratives arised around this feeling, “logical explanations” with a dramatic and destructive nature, like drowning in a brainstorm.


I found it a week later, it was in my chest, between my lungs.


I let it escape with a peaceful Exhale

then it was silence,

deep Between the breath.

Slowly with the Inhale

came the birth of an echo,

that resonates:


Ain’t more sadness rhymes.


Class starts at 6:30 pm, every Tuesday at the Anglican Church in Mangawhai, please arrive at least 5 minutes before.


Entry: Koha


*Community yoga is all about sharing. it is for everybody willing to explore; The aim is to inspire people to develop a personal practice, with a slow flow yoga sequence, that we take home, then we gather every week as a team in a theme class, by the poetic title of our teachings; We learn together the unlimited lessons of the practice.
