Yoga wasn't born in India, it was just preserved there and kept intact for a good bit of time (at least in proximity to relatively recent years to our own/today). For proof, you can go to what is written in stone in Egypt (Kmt) to find clues that will reveal this truth to you. Even the name Krishna (from Indian/Hindu text) means "the perfect black." This is not a racial matter (blackness), but rather a human (hue-man) matter. We are all human beings with pigmentation (although varying degrees of pigmentation which has much to do with our relationship to the Sun and how we interact with it). As individuals, we each need to be careful that we do not buy into the many "divisive racial ideas” that suggest any group of humans, especially based on phenotype and degree of pigment, is less or more valuable than any other group of people. If anything, people that cause harm and destruction of life (human or otherwise) and spread fear and disharmony are least valuable of all, no matter what their degree of hue.
Ignorance has people fighting politically for whose "group" made what contribution to the world. And the perceived value of that group then becomes the basis for how much that group is appreciated in our world. As they say, he who controls the past controls the future, and he who controls the present controls the past. It is also said that history is written by the victor/conqueror. You do the math on that :-)
If people only knew what contributions have been made by very very dark pigmented people, who incidentally inhabited that part of the earth we refer to as Africa (eastern north central -- heck, all of Africa for that matter... and all over the world!), then there might be more "appreciation" (rather than tolerance) of the range of humanity (or should I say hue-man-ity). Genocide, war, and destruction are fear based diseases of the human psyche. Rid yourself of this disease before it destroys you. But that's another conversation for another day. Let's chat about that over a nice meal. Back to the point!
Hue-mankind discovered long ago that there were/are ways we could/can direct the mind and things we do to vastly improve ourselves AND as a result developed a system (we refer to as yoga) whereby anyone of us could apply certain conscious efforts to accelerate our personal evolution. I like to think of this as applying heat and pressure to ourselves so that we can intentionally develop ourselves from a piece of graphite into the diamonds we are meant to be. How soon that happens is up to us. It begins with each individual first, so every person must accept and assume the responsibly of becoming his or her BEST now! Then as the number of individuals improves (that's us), so will communities, societies, and then the world. Let's do this together! We owe it to our children and our children's children, and so on...
If you have not already, give yoga a try and see how yoga makes your soul bling bling.

No Sunday yoga asana practice yesterday -- I was away for business. I missed that group space connection though. When we are all together and moving through our practice with breath, there is a spiritual cadence and vibration that lifts our being. Only those who practice can ever know what this feels like and what this means for the quality of their life during this lifetime. Others who do not practice and therefore lack the real and authentic experience of this heightened state of feeling/being, are the ones who speculate, doubt, and debate the truth of this. I always find this fascinating. Practice provides experience. Experience builds the door through which knowledge may enter.
We are back on for next Sunday though. I look forward to seeing you there.
Today's Sunday Yoga at Allegro was a pretty awesome practice! For the first ever yoga class offered to residents, the turnout was pretty impressive. I was certainly delighted to see the number that came out bright and early, and eager to get their yoga on! This is going to be an amazing class!
I've uploaded the sequence here for your review. Enjoy! And let me know if you should have any questions...
