Before I started doing Dynamic, during my yoga practice I was very much in my head. I was wondering if I was doing it right, comparing myself to others in the class, worrying about my body – how it looked, was this the right exercise for it? – or just thinking about the next thing I needed to do in my day.
[Since practicing Dynamic Meditation] I find that balancing in handstand is less of a struggle. There is more clarity and presence while I am practicing, and the heaviness has largely disappeared. I find myself inventing new sequences and new introductory postures for my students each time I practice.
[Dynamic meditation was] cleansing, refreshing and healing. It has given me an ability to accept my own feelings, to experience that there are no limits. It brings me to the core of my being. I am able to feel who I am and allow myself just to be.
[Doing Dynamic] I felt like I was releasing pent-up emotions, discovering new patterns of movement – and how to break them. [Dynamic] definitely expanded my boundaries. I discovered dozens of new ways to move my body, which was elevating. There is no doubt that I will apply these principles in my everyday life. Any routine can be broken...the combination for adjusting my response to any given situation is infinite.
[After the active meditation workshop] I felt great...a sort of bliss. It's been a week and two days since the group but the feelings are still there. A little less, maybe, but they are definitely still with me.
With yoga you've got to fit into the method. That's just the opposite of what's available through the Active Meditations – which provide a choice of so many different techniques because it's understood that we are all unique.
There were certain bodily sensations throughout [Dynamic] but they didn't engage me. I felt a sense of expanded awareness and, in the dancing stage, extreme pleasure.
[After doing Dynamic twice] I have less pain in my hips than usual and I feel less stress than I have for weeks.
