There are so many searches for meaning. I know that I am not alone in my desire to linger in both the Self-Help and the Philosophy section in my local bookstore. There is a fascination with Truth and Meaning, which is likely how these words ended up together in our intention space. Can we be searching for one without the other?
In our asana practice we all have postures that help us develop our own connection with meaning. As we all hold tension in different areas of the body there are postures that will unlock different sensations and have differing purposes for each of us. A few weeks ago I felt very driven to incorporate a few postures into my own personal practice, and then worked my way through others to make sure I was creating something balanced. That call to this particular asana was quite meaningful, and led me to some very interesting spaces. Following these intuitive spaces can be so informative.
Our pose of the month: Anjaneyasana or Low Lunge is a wonderful space to develop awareness and start that unlocking process (if there is one to be had!) Most of us carry something, or a lot of things in our hips.
Coming into Anjaneyasana:
As we explore our own release spaces, and as mentioned in our search for Equanimity, even the idea of spaciousness can be powerful, can we sink and settle into them? Can we allow them to develop? Can we find the meaning in this posture on this day? The day that I followed my intuition, I knew it would feel right, the WHY around it carried much more meaning. What a way to explore 🙂
