Life teaches us that our one constant is ourselves.
But who am I?
A body?
A body and mind?
A body, mind and heart?
A body, mind, heart and soul?

Here I am in Alternate Hand to Toe Forward Bend Pose, at Lake Wasdale. Take hold of the opposite toe, with a bent knee squeeze, place the other hand on the ground, and walk the hand back to the standing toe. The pose is achievable for hand to toe students, and the stretch can be deepened in both directions for more advanced students. I was originally taught yoga in the Sivananda tradition. The biggest strength of the Sivananda school is the all-round range of poses, in all orientations, that are taught every class. Whilst I’ve adapted the sequence, I continue this tradition in my teaching. Every class we stand, sit, lie—front and back, and invert the body. We move and flow, and we hold poses still. This range of activity and orientation, has a specific holistic effect, that delivers an all-round flow in the body, an all-round view in the mind, and an all-round presence in the heart. It deconditions the mind, helping us let go of what is fixed, and feel what is flowing. One of the ways to grow in wisdom, is to experience many different perspectives and roles in life. First, we think our view is right, then we realise there is an opposite view, with the same merits, then we realise there are many views, and finally we begin to see and experience life in the round. If we become really still inside, feeling the state of absorption with a quiet mind, we have no view, and are ready to relate to any view. Evolution can be described in a series of increasingly sided shapes. When we are set and fixed in our ways, we are like a square with sharp corners. As we add more dimensions to our life, we become a pentagon, a hexagon, a heptagon, and then an octagon. Eventually we add so many perspectives and dimensions, that we end up as a circle, with no edges, entirely smooth, a nothing that includes everything, an emptiness that is fullness, a nobody who can relate to everybody.

Here I am in Crouching Pose, also called Hands Bound Tip Toe Pose, also called Tip Toe Child Pose, bathing my lower back in the rays of the setting Kephalonian sun. This rather overlooked pose is great for stretching out the lower back if you’ve been standing for a long time, and if you’re suffering from back spasms relating to a pulled, recovering muscle. It’s a pose you can practise anywhere, anytime, even in a coffee queue! The stretch increases as you relax in position, your head sinking down onto your knees, poised between the opposites of activity and rest, stillness and flow, the ground and the sky, the sun and the sand. Without the opposites of life, nothing would work, and nothing would come into being. The opposites are our left and right, our ground and sky, our in-breath and out-breath, our expansion and contraction, our microcosm and macrocosm, our immanent being and our transcendent being, the God within and the God without. Foolishness is to take one side in the world of opposites, wisdom is to embrace both sides, and use the expanded heart energy that results to rise above the stormy weather, up into the unlimited, luminous sky. Life always involves both friction and effortless flow, both stress and creative inspiration, both fighting off the incoming missiles, with your back to the wall, and surfing on waves of synchronicity and serendipity. The more we know, the more we know we don’t know. The less we rely on our plans and ideas about life, and the more we yearn for that direct heartfelt contact with the fountain of presence, that rises from within in the state of absorbed awareness. However unrelentingly dismal the news appears to be, we shouldn’t let it touch our innermost being, or define our vibration. We are meant to glow, and that’s the only way we’ll grow, and help the world too. 🙏🔥🧡🌈

Here I am on One-Legged Chair Pose, or Squat Pose, with Fire Log leg variation, and Cow Face Pose arms. One of the themes in yoga poses is removing limbs, or supports, to increase the strength and balance challenge. Tree Pose is the classic example of a one-legged stand, which doubles the pressure on the standing leg and creates a balance challenge. Binding the hands in various ways also limits the hand and arm support in poses and can also increase the stretch, strength, and balance challenge. There is an underlying theme here. We start life by building ourselves up. Early life is all about addition, as more things, experiences, and relationships come into our lives. At a certain point, the cycle of acquisition comes to an end, and we start to experience subtraction, where things, experiences, and people are taken away from us. Rather than regretting the inevitable rises and falls of life, the trick here is to jump onto a higher, more subtle wave and make a new ascent. From quantity to quality. When the body fails, turn to the mind, when the mind fails, turn to the heart. When excitement wanes, turn to peace, when the love affaires end, turn to a higher, deeper, broader love. Psychologists have observed that people become measurable happier when looking at fractal patterns in nature, such as a tree with repeating branches, that become smaller and smaller, and rise higher and higher. Our life is a fractal pattern, as we go through repeating cycles, but less gross and more subtle, as they repeat. If we can keep catching subtler waves, we can keep on rising and ascending. This is the trick behind meditation. We focus on one thing, or maybe a sequence of increasingly subtle points of focus, and then, when we get in the flow, we let the supports go. Build your scaffolding, high in the sky, but let it all go, when you begin to fly. 🙏🔥🧡🌈

Here I am in headstand, single leg lateral stretch variation, from my last trip to Pathos, one beautiful sunset. The challenge is holding your balance with a one-sided stretch, which needs your core muscles. One of the reasons we are drawn to the seaside is that it blends the earth—the sand, with water—the sea, with fire—the sun, with fresh air. These elements both restore our natural balance, and facilitate the subtle process of transformation from the ground to the sky, that lifts our mood. In modern science this transformation process is recognised in the four states of matter—solid, liquid, gas, plasma, representing a journey of transformation to lighter and more subtle states, and this understanding was always part of the ancient idea of the four elements. If we restore our natural balance, we will naturally feel our spirits lifted, our inner spark light up, and our creativity, compassion, and contemplation flow, in the same way that everything in nature grows upwards towards the light. Most of my life I’ve taught an evening yoga class after a day at work and to prepare for the class I usually take a rest—lying down, (earth element), then take a bath—cleansing and refreshing my body (water element), then meditate before starting the class (fire element and air element), and by the time I’ve gone through that process, I feel like a completely different person to the one who was dealing with stressful situations. When we start the day, we all emerge from our bed—earth element, wash ourselves with water element, fuel our inner digestive fire element with food, and then step out into the big wide world—air element. The ancient element idea wasn’t bad science, it was a deep intuition about how the transforming processes of nature are inherent to our way of being. Our balanced state is naturally a buoyant state, just as the earth is drawn to the stars. 🙏🔥🧡🤸‍♀️

Here I am in Headstand bound legs variation, stretching out my thighs, from my trip to Lake Wasdale on Monday, making the best of a single day of sunshine amongst the rain. This variation forms the body into a Stupa shape, evoking the famous phrase about our body being a temple, and our heart a shrine. St. Paul famously said a similar thing when he said our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. You could say our body is our doing centre, our mind our thinking centre, our heart our feeling centre, and our soul our being centre, and the goal of all the poses in yoga is to facilitate the awakening of our feeling and being centres. Our doing centre, our body, is active, and our being centre, our soul, is reflective, and headstand pose perfectly expresses the blend of active and reflective. Whilst our body is engaged in balancing upside down, at the point of balance the pose requires very little effort, and we have the sensation of being suspended in space, deliciously hanging loose, whilst fully and keenly aware. The head is placed symbolically below the heart, and the top of the skull is magnetised and stimulated by the ground, increasing the feeling of activity in inactivity, and inactivity in activity. When you feel the flow of your soul, the magnetic current of presence, the spiralling energies of ascension, the electricity of increasing intensity, the gathering together of your essential being—the fullness of life, as Jesus liked to say, you don’t need to justify yourself or preen your image, or prove anything to anyone. At that moment when the silence rings with a sound, the stillness acquires a flow, and our focus melts into a feeling, our heart awakens, and we realise that ‘The Kingdom is at Hand’, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the peace, love, and wisdom we crave is already within us, flowing like a river into and out of the ocean of universal being.

Here I am from my last trip to Fuerteventura in Child’s Pose reverse prayer hands variation. An extensive yoga sequence releases, expresses and stimulates our body, so that we can really let go into a subtle flow, like a dew drop dissolving into a glistening ocean. Poses like Child Pose help us completely let go and feel the inner flow.

Here I am from my last trip to Aberdovey in Wales - you don’t have to go far to find stunning sunsets.

Join us Tuesday nights in Culcheth and Thursdays on zoom for a balanced sequence of achievable yoga poses, blended with relaxation and meditation.

I’ve been teaching yoga since 2001, focusing on your health and well-being experience, blending a good, all round physical workout with the art of contemplation and relaxation.

Here’s what Victoria had to say about our last zoom class - ‘Great class, thank you Stephen. My back feels much better. I will sleep now!’

15/02/2023

Here I am in Wagtail Pose, at Aberdovey in Wales. This relatively easy pose is essentially a squat blended with a forward bend, hands reaching back, and can be a preparatory for Firefly Pose. When I was a student, a long time ago, I travelled to India to visit Sathya Sai Baba, just at the time when Neil Kinnock lost the UK general election. Despite being in an ashram, I remember feeling disappointed and realised I hadn’t quite let go of the world. I became more philosophical and realised that the ebb and flow of politics from left to right is really like breathing in and breathing out. Sometimes we need to get a grip and pull ourselves together, as the right say, and sometimes we need to ease up and give each other a hug, as the left say. Fascinatingly, the right side of our anatomy, linked to the left side of the brain, is considered in Hatha Yoga to be the solar, proactive, strong side, linked to the logical brain, and the left side of our anatomy linked to the intuitive right side of the brain, is considered the lunar, reflective, soft side, just like in politics. If we want our Kundalini to rise up the Sushumna channel, we need both the soft Ida and strong Pingala Nadi energies to spiral up our spine. Wisdom begins when we realise that the balance of opposites is the essence of life, and arguing over whether the sun or the moon is best, seems pointless. When we meditate, we start with our physical posture, Asana, blending the strong feeling of lifting ourselves up, lengthening the spine, with the soft feeling of letting ourselves go, softening our muscles. Moving onto our breath, Pranayama, we balance a deep inbreath with a long, slow, smooth, outbreath. Moving onto our mind, we blend concentration with contemplation, Dharana with Dhyana, balancing the effort of focus, with the ease of flow, becoming filled with presence, into which we let go.

Join us Tuesday nights in Culcheth 8-9.30pm for 90 minute yoga class or Thursdays on zoom including meditation, warming flows, held poses and relaxation. Over 20 years teaching.
