Connecting To Divine Inspiration Through The Crown Chakra

Connecting To Divine Inspiration Through The Crown Chakra

September 4, 2019

This episode brings the seven-episode series about chakras to a conclusion.

Brooke Baudot returns again to provide her expertise on Sahasrara, otherwise known as the crown chakra.

Sahasrara is the lotus of one thousand petals.

We each have a lotus flower that is unique to us, and it is the essence of who we are. Nathalie says that a helpful meditation practice is to close your eyes and begin to imagine your lotus flower.

Journaling questions about your unique lotus flower:

How does it look? How does it feel? This flower is continuously evolving.

Brooke reads the balance characteristics of this chakra, and Nathalie jumps in to stress how important the ability to question is. The two then discuss why finding a connection is crucial, no matter how you refer to it.

When you tap into a frequency that is so clearly tied to the seventh chakra, you can allow other people to participate in it. If you have access to this type of frequency, it is your duty to share it with others. This is what Nathalie has devoted her life to.

#38 Yoga Tradition with Melanie Fawer Going Back To Mysore

#38 Yoga Tradition with Melanie Fawer Going Back To Mysore

September 23, 2018

Today’s guest is Melanie Fawer, an ashtanga yoga teacher who is certified by Pattabhi Jois. We hear about how her first trip to India made her fall in love with yoga, in part due to the differences she saw in it there compared to the US. That first trip to India was in 1994, so we discuss the changes that Melanie has seen in yoga since then.

 

Melanie teaches Mysore style yoga. She shares with us why it is so special to her and what exactly makes it unique. She continues to be impressed at how genius the style is. Then, we learn about the usefulness of led classes and other inspirations that Melanie draws from. Because ashtanga classes are sometimes taught incorrectly, we hear about this causing some people to falsely dislike it. A proper class takes a lot of observation from the teacher.

 

Only internally can we truly know when the next level of evolution needs to happen, which causes Melanie to share how we can find our true potential. It’s important to have a support group, but Melanie feels like she hasn’t had that foundation until about five years ago. Related to this, she offers advice on what to do on the days that feel gloomy.

 

An important aspect of Mysore style is connecting with one teacher; going to different studios and teachers may lead to selling yourself short. Melanie discusses this and points out what to keep in mind when starting Mysore style yoga.
