Sayanasana (Ashtanga advance B series)

With Kino Macgragor


Dedicated Santa 2012

Opening Prayer


Vande Gurūṇāṁ CaraṇaraVinde 

Sandarśita Svātma Sukhāva Bhodé

Nishréasé Jāngalikaya Māné 

Samsara Hālahala Mohaśan Tayai

ābhahu puruṣakāraṁ 

śaṅkachakra si Dhāriṇam

Sahasra śiraśaṁ śvetaṁ 

Praṇamāmi Pantañjalim


I bow to the lotus feet of the Gurus

The awakening happiness of one’s own self revealed,

Beyond better, acting like the Jungle physician,

Pacifying delusion, the poison of Samsara.

Taking the form of a man to the shoulders,

Holding a conch, a discus, and a sword,

One thousand heads whites,

To Patanjali, I salute.



Bhairavasana for America. :)

Ashtanga Yoga method is universal, it is not mine or yours. That method is perfect, it is complete. Ashtanga Yoga is yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, samadhi - these are the eight steps which make up Ashtanga Yoga method. But first you take asana: “āsanaṃ prāṇasaṃrodhaś pratyāhāraś ca dhāraṇām, dhyānaṃ samādhir etāni ṣaḍaṅgāni prakirtita” (śandilya) upanisads are telling: first you start asana, asanas are your foundation.

"ANYONE CAN DO YOGA"  poster by Boonchu Tanti  :)


If Neo have ever practiced Yoga instead of kungfu!!!  :D

I always love to read the old practitioner tell their yoga story.  Here is one good read of David Swenson.  :)

Ashtanga Yoga is more than a person, is more than a city.

Ashtanga Yoga lives, when people are practicing it, instead of speaking about it. And it seems to me that the teacher has one main objective, one basic role is to inspire his students, to inspire them to practice.

It is not necessary to influence people’s lives, it is important to show them how to use the certain tool and how it is possible to change their life by means of this tool. ~ David Sweson

Krishnamacharya Simhasana.

Inspired by my favorite clip in youtube ‘Krishnamacharya in 1938 with yoga Sutras’

I sketched this in my sketchbook last year.  I just have some times to illustrated it.  I will soon make it on Tee. :)
