Patanjali’s Sutra 1.37 today, one view at it from a scolarly and traditional may I say conservative perspective, using my yoga sutra study companion book, THE YOGA SUTRAS of PATANJALI, by EDWIN f. BRYANT and one more contemporary explanation and practice tip from simple-yoga.org, a yoga sutra study by ruben vasques I really respect as well and use as a go to for the more pracical view and wording sometimes.
And also looking into the Ashtanga Opening and Closing Mantras in honoring the lineage of teachers and guru.
hi loves, its me, annemarie of VENUSfrequency, living and sharing a pop|culture way of the YOGA, MEDITATION, HOLISTIC BODY WISDOM and SOUL ARTistry lifestyle in support of a more mindful, co-creating, accepting and loving world.
broadcasting frequencies and supporting energy waves
that vibrate bright, lucid and clear, that nourish the powerful feminine aspects of all things creation.
“and when saying the feminine, not meaning gender, but the feminine principle that is living—or suppressed—in both men and women.”
The power to either destroy & surpress or to heal, awaken, co-craete & nourish, lies in our own vision.
With deep breath work and the stillness and calm of your practice, you will find peace. Along with this will come your own realizations, your own spirituality and your own truth. The more frequent your regular practice becomes, the more you can create the stillness.
Your body has memory, which can be triggered by movement.
The so called asanas, the yoga postures move your body into all sorts of positions, and your circulation breathes life into stagnant areas.
Just as impurities move, so do crystallized emotions dislodge.
Your body and mind are cleansed holistically and your reactivity to stressful situations lessens.
Yes, lets cleanse holistically and lessen reactivity to stressful situations and deep dive into yogic wholesomeness together,
In yoga, weather teaching or practicing, I want inspiration, I want discovery, I want to explore the body, mind and soul’s limitless possibilities, and I want that for you too.
A playlist full of gems again, that accompanies us as a soundtrack of this inspirational time of discovery, deep dives and explorations together into limitless possibilities,
handselected by me for you my loves.
Ashtanga Yoga Opening Chant
The Opening Prayer is a blessing of gratitude offered to the lineage of teachers and their students who have enabled this ancient practice to survive through thousands of years so that we can experience its benefits today. The recitation of this mantra cleanses the energy of the space we have chosen to practice yoga, as well as preparing the mind, body and emotions for the forthcoming Ashtanga sequence.

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