Kino MacGregor has an eloquent post on her website , www.kinoyoga.com , entitled " The Logic of the 6 Day a Week Mysore Style Ashtanga Method ".
This thought from her resonated with me the most , " One other crucial shift must happen in order to facilitate the transition into full immersion in the yoga tradition.
You must make the transition from a fitness oriented approach to yoga into a devotional one.
By getting this subtle shift you will gain consistency and regularity in the way that you do your practice. A daily spiritual ritual where you take time to connect internally to a deep sense of yourself requires dedication."
That is the key word which connects the traditions of Bhakti Yoga & Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga : DEVOTION. SADHANA.
Are you mired forever in the lower reaches of the Ashtanga ladder if you cannot transcend the physicality of your practice?
