    #128: Embracing The Gift Of The Yoga Practice

    #128: Embracing The Gift Of The Yoga Practice

    Observing is the basis of mediation practice, which is a very vital part of the yoga practice. No matter how many times your mind wanders or where it wanders, the most important thing is to observe that your mind has wandered and then return your focus to your breath. 
    From your meditation and yoga practice, carry whatever peace and harmony that is in your heart into your life. Kindness is how we make the spiritual message of yoga real. By embodying who we are and expanding the circle of kindness. 
    Be grateful for the gift of the practice and the generations before us who have taught us the spiritual teachings. Embrace that opportunity to get on the mat and the time you have for your practice! 
    Start embodying the spirit of yoga today with a short 5-minute sitting practice by expanding your circle of kindness from just yourself or loved ones to everyone.

    #127: What Is A Successful Yoga Practice?

    #127: What Is A Successful Yoga Practice?

    I’ve been practicing yoga since college, but does that alone make me a successful yogi? Do the cool poses you can do make your yoga practice successful? Also, no. Success in the yoga practice is not judged by external metrics like aesthetic performance.  
    Practice is different than performance. A performance entertains; a practice is done for you and you alone. Your yoga practice is meant to help you become a better human being. You’d be surprised at the changes you’ll see in yourself through practice. 
    How you judge your success is also how you can judge your failures. Remember that a practice isn’t perfect, it means you’re practicing. Just because you’re not the epitome of successful yoga practice, that doesn’t mean you’re a failure either.
    What truly defines a successful yoga practice is dedicating yourself to learning more, not just doing more. It’s remembering and honoring the fact that yoga practice isn’t purely physical. It’s also a spiritual journey.

    #126: The Validation Of Your Efforts In Yoga Practice

    #126: The Validation Of Your Efforts In Yoga Practice

    Yoga is a spiritual practice, an internal journey that can’t be reflected in anyone the same way it is inside yourself. The fundamental idea is that the seeds of awakening, peace, and Samadhi are within every single one of us. 
    Your experience is best evaluated personally and individually. Not by the standards of others or external factors. “If only” will only toxify your yoga practice, ruining it for you and others. Only you can evaluate your own yoga journey. 
    The poison of our conditioned existence is the jungle of our thoughts. It is up to us to make a path out of this jungle by honing our thoughts through yoga practice and internal growth. There is a different path for every growth. 
    And this will not look the same as someone else. But, this doesn’t mean you’re doing it incorrectly. Your effort and your own evaluation of your efforts in your practice are the only things that matter. Once your efforts are valid to you, they grow into something more.

    #125: How You Can Infuse Sadhana Into Your Yoga Practice

    #125: How You Can Infuse Sadhana Into Your Yoga Practice

    Many of us, even myself, came into this beautiful world of yoga through Asana or physical practice. Then after some time, it becomes necessary to learn more about the Sadhana or spiritual side of and more subtle limbs of your practice. 
    This is a very personal journey that will be different for everyone in terms of when you will find the spiritual spark. But, the general rule is by the time you’re getting to advanced Asanas, you should be exploring Sadhana. Otherwise, the physical side of yoga can become an obstacle to the spiritual side. 
    Without equanimity and a calm mind, true presence and awareness cannot happen. Using Anapanasati and other limbs of yoga as tools and transitioning your yoga practice from physical to spiritual, you can find it all and more. 
    Recognize the true nature of your own mind. Allow sensations to happen or your mind to slightly wander. But always come back to your meditation and breathing. That’s the key.

    #124: Yoga, Community, and Liberation - With Sunaina Madhav Dasi

    #124: Yoga, Community, and Liberation - With Sunaina Madhav Dasi

    Sunaina Madhav Dasi (they/them) is a multidimensional human that holds many identities. They immigrated from Bangalore, India in 1996 and are currently settled on the ancestral lands of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute Nations. Sunaina is a mixed-race person (Indo-Aryan and Dravidian) and speaks Tamil as their mother tongue.
    Their yoga practice is deeply rooted in Hinduism, Bhakti, and social justice. They follow the lineage and teachings of their ancestors and Sri Paramahamsa Vishwananda as they took initiation into Hari Bhakta Sampradaya. Sunaina uses their neurodivergent superpowers to create a more community-centered world that focuses on individual healing by embracing one's unique purpose.
    They believe that the answer is already within us when we choose self-love, accountability, and awareness. With their unique lens of the yogic path, Sunaina creates spaces to reclaim traditional practices, decolonize minds and abolish oppressive systems that affect us at an energetic and societal level. Outside of their practice, they enjoy modeling, photography, dancing, and directing photoshoots!
    In our conversation, Sunaina talks about their background as well as coming to America. They also talked about their definition of Yoga, which can be different for everyone. Everyone is on their own journey, and what you bring from the heart to your practice is always the best place to start. 
    The spiritual side of yoga seems to be bypassed, especially in Western yoga, where Asana is the main focus. But for Sunaina, who is deeply rooted in their traditions and Guru’s teachings, uses acceptance, fluidity, and yoga philosophy to create a more accepting space for everyone. 
    Through the teachings of yoga, you can find true liberation. By allowing yourself to be exactly as you are, you can connect with the divine and yourself.

    #123: Blissful And Imperfect: Talking Reality/Dharma With Kino MacGregor

    #123: Blissful And Imperfect: Talking Reality/Dharma With Kino MacGregor

    After years of practicing, I realized getting my meditation practice perfect wasn’t going to happen. But, this impossibility doesn’t have to be a problem. Understand the imperfect nature of all things, even yourself, your life, and what you bring to meditation practice.
    A wandering mind is not a failed meditation. It’s all a part of the practice. And, that’s what it is: a practice. Imperfection and failure are a part of learning, a part of reality. No one is without imperfection.   
    We must also bring this understanding of imperfection into our lives. Our lives are imperfect, with arguments and other negative situations. None of these are failures of your spiritual practice. In fact, this awareness is a sign of spiritual growth. 
    Another important thing to understand is that judging other beings will only hurt your spiritual growth. The concept of good and bad varies, and it’s important to remember that our perception only allows us to see a sliver of reality. 
    Blissful moments will happen, but this is when it is most important to practice non-attachment. Experience everything for what it is, and let it go. Remain present in the reality you are in and find peacefulness there.

If you’re a yoga student/teacher the podcast is an amazing recourse!

I’ve never felt so compelled to leave a review than after listening to todays episode #114 A Call To Ahimsa and a Prayer For Peace in Ukrainian. I’ve also never felt so proud to call Kino my teacher. Although we’ve only met in person one time I knew that her gentle yet firm way of teaching worked for me. I can easily understand the teachings of the eight fold path and with sustained practice it gets easier and easier but today was different. Today Kino is raw emotion and it is felt deeply. I sobbed as I listened but thankful to be here listening from a safe place as our brothers and sisters fight a war. I’ve stayed clear of the news before today because I know it doesn’t serve me too be so upset, afraid , angry at the situation but Kino explains what is happening in a way that I can hear it and pray/meditate/practice not only ahimsa but the other limbs of the practice SO that I may serve others without passing on fear/anger etc. I can’t wait to someday visit my teacher Kino in the new space in Miami! Peace and Love to all!

A must listen for yogis

Kino’s podcast is amazing. So nice to be able to receive teachings through Kino via this podcast. Episodes are packed with so much good information on the practice and philosophy of yoga. I often have to go back and replay episodes when I am not doing other things (driving, etc.) so that I can take notes of stuff I want to learn more about. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us Kino!

I’m here for the interviews

Kino is a great interviewer and chooses wonderful people to talk with. I’m always so glad I took the time to listen. The dharma talks however are a little disconcerting as she slides into broken English. This seems unusual since her interviews are in a beautiful, conversational, energetic voice. For this reason I’m having trouble recommending the podcast to others. Kino, I would love it if you could work through this with friends and colleagues you trust.
