20110413 - Life Cycle

I have been changing my plans, and I've finally decided the following plan for this Sunday.
Spring is birth and rebirth, both prograssions need lots of energy. Nature wakes Spring from Winter, the awakening process has to start with the right time, right direction and right pace to ensure healthy growth to complete the life cycle.

In Ayurveda Theory, spring is Kapha Dosha. The primary element for Kapha is water then is earth. These two are presenting property of wetness and cold. Chinese believe everything has Yin and Yang, another words, nothing is forever positive and forever negative, because it all depends on several factors including time.

Since I am preparing this theme for the next practice teach and I will be the first one up; my designated starting time will be on or after11am. This is the time to be considered as Pitta Dosha, which primary element is fire. Between 11-1pm is one of two periods our internal body is fully activated with transformations according to TCM (traditional Chinese medicine).

I would like to adopt the advantage from one of the most energized time periods for human body, converting the wet and cold elements from Kapha season into healthy growth energy. Therefore, the next PT is the most appropriate time to practice a representation of life cycle.

Practicing changes from sleeping state/savasana into awakening state/warm-ups including setu bandasana, matsyasana & adho mukka svanasana (birth), next into the blooming state/full expression of virabhadrasana I & ardha namaskar parsvakonasana (growth), then deceleration state /janu sirsasana & pashimotanasana(decaying), and finally deep into sleeping state /savasana(death); meditation with the awareness that this cycle continues.

Meditation: Imaging from a seed, grow into a shrub, tree or blooming into a flower, gradually fading away preparing for the winter, finally surrender to earth ; next life cycle continues.

Today is Clarity.
