A triad of blessings…

1. Kim Rosen gave an inspiring TED talk that you must see if you haven’t already!

Mind, body, spirit!

Past, present, future!

The three little pigs!

Father, Son, Holy spirit!

2. I’m tickled pink by the brave team of YOKE MAGAZINE for stepping into a highly saturated arena of media superficiality and producing a product of intense integrity aligning itself to the very purpose of yoga being ‘a union of consciousness’.  They are an independent magazine which does not support advertising. Meaning: No ego, no peddling of the unattainable and above all no BULLSHIT!!! Om Shanti!

Me, myself and I!

Thought, word, action!

Birth, life, death!

Jack grew the bean stalk from 3 seeds!

3. Viparita Karani…. is one yoga pose that will save your life. it is a stunning asana that can swiftly alter a state of mind. My only caution is women should not do it during their cycle. It literally means, doing an inverted pose. The ideal is to use a wall but if that’s not available to you then either use the side of your bed or the couch or a chair are all very effective. Sit to the side of your prop, with your shoulder right up against the wall/bed/chair. Lower your torso to the floor while simultaneously swinging your legs upward. If you’re using a chair just allow your knees to bend and your feet to rest on the chair. What may happen during your transition is that your back may move away from the wall… so here’s what you do to get it closer to your prop. Bend your knees and flatten your feet to the wall. Lift your back and walk your shoulders inward towards the wall, then slowly lower yourself down and hopefully you’ll be closer to the wall if not touching it. With a chair you can pull it closer to you. If when you’re there your back starts to ache trying placing a firm pillow or rolled towel under your lower back, right up against the wall. Then close your eyes and enjoy the bliss of letting go!!!! It is rejuvenating, for the sheer reason that the circulation of blood is being assisted and your system can take a short break as the nectar of your being pools towards the heart effortlessly. I like to stay for 30 minutes. Your arms can either be stretched behind you or they can rest on your belly giving you an opportunity to focus on the flow of the breath. Trust me, this one is a must!! Please let me know how it made you feel…

legs up the wall

Beginning, middle, end!

Genies grant 3 wishes!

Shakespeare’s 3 witches!

I have three kids! 

The acronym of my kids names makes:  OMA… grandmother in German

 

OM shanti, shanti, shanti… peace, peace, perfect peace!!!

From Bent to me….

Just a brief note to say HELLO…

I started off as BentPeople and perhaps it was my name that lured you to my site. With a whiff of change in the air, I’ve made the grown up decision to take ownership of who I am and change the name of my site to (me) Adriana Cortazzo. My site has two purposes: one is to keep new and current students informed of my teaching schedule and secondly, to share some fun, creative and liberating rants with a pinch or a dollop of yoga sacredness. I am inspired by the wisdom and words of the stunning Kim Rosen when she says “dare to allow the rhythm of your heart beat and your breath into the words you use…” I do wear my heart on my sleeves and hopefully into the very veins of my being. Although you are already part of my online tribe I reopen my door to you and greet you whole heartedly to this place I call me. Bless you!

me!
