06:00 - Michaël Bijker’s story to finding Yoga LAP
09:00 - Can you break down the course structure. I assume this is the most effective way you found to learn and/or deepen a pranayama and meditation practice?
Quote: “Getting High on Your Own Supply”
15:30 - “Humble observer of life. Let life happen as it comes and goes. Accepting life. Otherwise life can become frustrating. Wanting to control everything. Learning to accept and let go. Influence what we can influence.”
21:00 - “How you see the world is a reflection of your state of mind. If you want to brighten up your world, enlighten your mind.”
26:00 - “You cannot force yourself to be happy nor fool your own mind to be happy.”
29:30 - Social Media in note of the documentary the Social Dilemma that recently came out
44:30 - “In the course our goal is to learn how to connect with our ‘true nature’. We can try to create this sense of inner peace by changing these things outside our lives making everything perfect but it doesn’t work like that. We can have all the material things we want but we still have restlessness and still not true inner peace. It all happens within. Going towards the source of ourselves.” What is our “true nature” you speak about?
48:00 - Idea of separating the “mind” from our “consciousness” and going beyond the mind?
52:00 - Make a seemingly ordinary world and make it extraordinary embodying your Secret Yogi aka your source and unlocking your “superpowers”
55:00 - Audience Questions:
1. Kapalbhati versus Bhastrika breath
2. What are the purpose of breath holds like “kumbaka”?
3. How do I take my predominately physical yoga practice or workout regime and bring awareness within. I know I should focus on my breath but any further tips?
