@luxyoga staff practice before our 4th Summer 2017 retreat. This  one's also my fourth with @forrestyoga senior teacher @erica_mather . I'm lucky to have a close circle of friends who are such accomplished teachers, and even more so to have such great humans as friends. ———————————–———
Also also: I was looking at this photo and was just struck by the luck or good fortune or what have you that we all have to live lives that allow us the freedom and means to post photos of ourselves stretching and write about how it makes us feel. That privilege is, in my view, the most common denominator in Instagram yoga. Some stuff on here I find inspiring, some educational, and some flat out appalling β€” but everyone is connected via the ability to participate. #yoga #keepiteversoslightlyreal #luxyoga #bensearsknows

Yoga with friends after yoga with friends. @erica_mather makes the most amazing face during challenging yoga moments. It's called Sad Baby Dragon Face and it deserves capital letters. I also have a special face reserved for when my practice is interrupted for @luxyoga villa maintenance. It's called Touch My Imaginary Daughter Again And I Will Fucking End You. #yoga #keepiteversoslightlyreal #luxyoga #bensearsknows

There are many ways to direct enthusiasm.

I was furious throughout my practice today, a seething cache of pent up frustration and self-doubt. I wanted to quit the whole time. In fact, I probably would've been better off taking a day off. I'm four retreats into the Summer season at my retreat center and I'm feeling the weight. Why this over-sharing? Because I want you to know that this truth is part of the thing, that all the lofty quotes and shiny images you see in your feed don't mean that anyone is higher or further or better than you β€” and (somewhat selfishly), writing out into the Insta-void is proving unexpectedly cathartic right now. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Feel what you feel, don't do anything drastic, and make choices about how to get out of the muck β€” or seek out the skills to do so β€” and then trust. Ironically, I've got all kinds of tools in my belt for this kind of day, but being still just a regular old human, sometimes the only one I can see is the hammer. #yoga #keepiteversoslightlyreal #bensearsknows #luxyoga

Think about the possibility of feeling empowerment through movement in a pose. Through your arms, your fingers, your face, your breast, your body. 
Building strength from natural rhythm and ease.

finding more fluidity and softness in the body when you practice.

Building suppleness, strength and endurance, and optimizing your natural curves.

We all have rhythms that build on our bodies desire for varying amounts of effort and intimacy.

Flow with the curves of your body.  Yes you heard me right. Invite your curves into you practice 
Listen to your body and it's natural rhythm.

What’s your angle? β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
The relationship between the angles and the muscular engagements in the postures is revelatory. Maintaining archetypal angles leads one to engage or disengage muscle correctly yet if muscle comes before physics without awareness of circumferential reach, it can act as what I call Samskara cement β€” even if the contraction would be correct at the ideal angle. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Samskara is a Sanskrit word that means past pattern: a physical or mental habituation that developed in the past and continues as non-conscious second nature. The term is more commonly used in reference to psychological patterning, but physical Samskara is no less pertinent. Muscle memory can keep you stuck or it can hold space. Flexibility is, paradoxically, the same; it can wear down one area or in balance allow all parts to support the whole. #yoga #keepiteversoslightlyreal #luxyoga #bensearsknows πŸ“· @yoga_wire

One thing I know I'm good at as a teacher is getting people out of pain, or recognizing the patterns that might cause pain down the road without killing the esoteric magic or visceral joys of intense practice.  I feel our primary responsibility as Asana teachers is to help people grow safely. The lofty goals of enlightenment are great β€” but the secret is β€” no one really knows what the fuck that means. I love my non-dual meditation practice and mantras but I stand above no one. That's the point. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
I am embodied and so are my students. I want them to enjoy their physicality for years to come. It's gonna stay safe on my watch. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

What are you really defending but your insecurity? Are you a person or a position? 
People pick and choose only the elements of a particular belief system that suit them, then claim superiority over others despite, ironically, their inability to even see the paradoxes in their own position.

This is as prevalent in yoga as it is in politics. It typically manifests as some kind of "my lineage is the best", or "I hold closest to tradition" (yet am basically unwilling to discuss an idea from a rational or anatomical perspective). The case, however, with sweeping ego-statements like these is that they are merely artifice to support a deeper insecurity. While I agree in maintaining the integrity of traditions an aware person must question his or her monopoly on that tradition and acknowledge that even the tradition itself is a thing often defined by evolution and change. 
The same is true in politics. How my Trump-friends manipulate the idea of Women's marches to mitigate their significance because "Hillary Clinton is bad!" or some anarchists broke a window is beyond me and frankly just shows fear and an inability to separate thinking from adherence to a party. And my friends on the left unwilling to have a constructive dialogue about illegal immigration or who espouse full-on Socialism, a proven failure as a governing technique, aren't getting us anywhere either. No one is listening and it's sickening. The simple test is this, if reading an oppositional viewpoint or listening to one different from your own fills you with rage and the need to lash out, its high time clean the slate. #regram @benjamin.sears
