    1. Close the right nostril with your right thumb and inhale through the left nostril. Do this to the count of four seconds.
    2. Immediately close the left nostril with your right ring finger and little finger, and at the same time remove your thumb from the right nostril, and exhale through this nostril. Do this to the count of eight seconds. This completes a half round.
    3. Inhale through the right nostril to the count of four seconds. Close the right nostril with your right thumb and exhale through the left nostril to the count of eight seconds. This completes one full round.

    Start by doing three rounds, adding one per week until you are doing seven rounds.

    Alternate nostril breathing should not be practiced if you have a cold or if your nasal passages are blocked in any way. Forced breathing through the nose may lead to complications. In pranayama it is important to follow this rule: under no circumstances should anything be forced. If you use the nostrils for breath control they must be unobstructed. If they are not, you must practice throat breathing.

The other day I misplaced my keys and began to feel out of the flow as I became worried. This bump was a great way to become creative and find another way – using another set of keys that I had. We often feel that if we didn’t have obstacles in the way everything would flow. But what if that is exactly the inviation to be in the flow and let ourselves become more flexible.

How do you stop the flow coming out of being Anusara (in the flow, current) into Samsara (out of the flow) – call me and leave your connection to this theme at 206.984.0347.

Funny enough I did not know Harry Potter was releasing #7 this weekend.. I guess the energy was embedded as there are so many things we have yet to see in ourselves and the world. While working to produce a NEW!! YOGA PODCAST called, Mudra Moments this week I found new features in wordpress which allowed me to add color to my posts..and what made me laugh is that it was pretty much always there but neither Elsie (congrats elsie for podcast 411 interview) or I saw it.

Notice in your life if you are not seeing that is right in front of you and send me an email to share hillaryrubin1@gmail.com.

Being true to who you in the world on and off the mat is yoga. Even though we all wear many masks in one day there is always a part of ourself that is constant. See if you can honor yourself connect to this authentic part of you and if you are not being true to your heart forgive yourself and then take action to nurture yourself.

In the third chapter of the Bhagavad Gita there is a conversation about this and its presented as it as its better to fail at your dharma then do someone else’s – trying to become someone else takes more work and is not authentic to your heart. If you are not sure if you are being true to you then allow yourself to become quiet and see in any situation if you are being true to you, just ask and there will be a response.

In this Yoga Podcast:

A Block will be used in this class.

For the past week I have been paying attention to see where I can make a difference in the world we live in by paying attention to where I can be of service. Even with teaching as a service for me I seek other ways to uplift others especially when I am in public places. The other day I saw a woman in Kinko’s began a conversation that led to yoga and that night she came to class – very cool to be able to help her heal as shared with me after class that she had a loss in her family and found yoga a great way to help grieve. This reminded me that we can make a big difference for others without really knowing the imprint we leave. My teachers all have reminded me of this and today I offer this to you – each day we can see how we are part of the tapestry of life.

Your feedback, YOU and your practice make a difference in this world…. I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity to make a difference in your life.
