The Beauty of the Flow
Sometimes when my yoga practice feels stale and I need a resurgence of that je ne sais qua to reinvigorate my flow, I watch a video clip of Seane Corn demonstrating yoga as body prayer. Seane Corn is known around the world as a talented teacher and practitioner of Vinyasa Yoga as well as Karma Yoga. While I’ve never attended one of her workshops or taken her classes, her energy as a yogini reaches me all the same through the net.
In this short You Tube clip, Seane demonstrates just one round of Surya Namaskar/Sun Salutation B. The asanas and sequencing are familiar, but the beauty and intensity of her flow is always powerful enough to re-awaken my passion for yoga. It’s easy to move from posture to posture while letting the mind run wild. For me, the real work is presence: staying connected to each asana and ensuring that my movements are a reflection of my intention. This is a practice that will never get stale, but will continue to challenge, teach, and inspire me. –Michelle Laxton
