Yoga for Self-Compassion

i really related to the comments on the new patterns and the judgments of the old patterns. sleeping in fetal position or more "closed" positions has become something of an issue for me now. trying to trust the body. i mean.. if im not resting, trusting, in sleep, or final relaxation then when right. its just ive known peaceful sleep in open positions too. im a bigger guy too at least in skeletal structure and i have this intuitive sense that I am supposed to be big and strong muscularly, too, but im trying to resist a kind of more intellectual "masculinity" at the same time. probably more info than anyone cares for but there it is! thanks ron

Hey There!
Thank you for taking the time to write your reflections!
I appreciate that the class offered you a place to explore things which you are holding in your awareness outside of your asana practice. Exploring our Masculinity in authentic ways... nice... seems this is what is being asked of us at this time. Enjoy the ride!

Perfect for me right now!

Thanks for this class, Ron. I'm slowly coming back to yoga after my first ever (and hopefully not first of many!) slipped disc last month. I've been doing yoga with Fiji for several years now and have had to practice a bit of humilty and compassion with the impatient parts of me striving to get back into that more vigourous flow. The concept and meditative words alongside this self compassion practice has been just what I need. Love the pleasure principle, and I'll be doing more of Ron's classes from now on!

I feel wonderful! Thank you, Ron! Just what I needed. "More challenging beginner yoga" is accurate - perfect for me as I ease back into my practice after several years of neglect. This class is a perfect blend of balance, strength, stretch and meditation. Well done.

Ron—this class came at just the right time for me. I found that I was becoming critical of myself because I was struggling with some of the classes offered as part of the 21 day strengthening challenge. I tuned into your class and felt so refreshed by your reminders about self-care, pleasure and enjoyment. It really helped me to reset my attitude and focus: Thank you for such a lovely and inspiring class.

This class was indeed a pleasure. I just completed this practice before bedtime. Lovely.
The pleasure focus is an important reminder for practice. Thank you Ron. I always enjoy your classes, whatever level. I am happy to see new classes from you.

I struggle to let go of the need to be busy, to accomplish more and to push my body to get stronger. Thank you for this reminder to give ourselves the gift of compassion, release and tenderness.

Excellent Class

I always love Ron's classes. He's got a great way of gently reminding you that it's okay not to be perfect, and that yoga is a life practice, not just an 'exercise routine' or an attempt to do the most difficult poses perfectly. I will definitely be doing this class again. Thank you, Ron!
