AUTUMN IS THE SEASON OF LETTING GO


Just recently I had the opportunity to experience the essence of Autumn. I moved house and left behind the 'Breathing Space Yoga Studio'. During this activity my perception of 'this everyday life' we live was that it is really about our Earth lessons.

The choices I had were two: one was to lower my vibrations and feel the pain of moving the countless possessions I had accumulated, the loss of my beloved yoga studio and the weekly routine and groups I had invested time in. Or I could choose to boost my vibrations by affirming the positive aspects of setting free the material things I no longer use; rejoicing in friends' delight with offerings they will make use of; paying less rent; creating space for the new to come in; following my guidance and releasing fear of the unknown to trust and fully accept that what was happening was perfect for me.

My Autumn inner landscape is here and I can feel how Mother Nature sheds herself of leaves, branches, and of moisture as fruits fall apart and deteriorate. This allows the seeds to be free, to evolve toward a renewed cycle of growth, paving the way for new beginnings.

By being aware of our Self, mind and essence, we can learn from Nature and from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. He described five mental modifications as vrittis.
These are :
   1.   Right knowledge
   2.   Wrong knowledge
   3.   Dream
   4.   Sleep
   5.   Memory

Vrittis are a consciousness that circulates, like a beginning with no end. We are caught up on this merry-go-round until we jump off with the guidance of Vairagya. Simply put, Vairagya means non-attachment.

Non-attachment is an essential part self-acceptance. There is no self-acceptance without non-attachment.

When we are clearing out the old or moving house, there is often that nagging attachment to hold onto things because 'one day we might use it', even though that thing is useless. We justify the attachment because 'it belonged to Grandma', and we want to hold onto that emotional attachment. This is the same for any attachment to an idea, object, pleasure or pain. Some of us are attached to pain and some to pleasure. When we can fully let go with non-attachment, we can then cut through the bondage of pain and pleasure.

This Autumn I wish you the best in releasing your attachments that harbour painful beliefs, the ones that no longer serve you; the ones that drag you down into not appreciating yourself or being grateful for this life. Clear and enhance your vibrational energies. Keep releasing, keep breathing, keep letting go in the sacred space of non-attachment and self-acceptance, no matter what.


The Blanket Around Her
maybe it is her birth
which she holds close to herself
or her death
which is just as inseperable
and the white wind
that encircles her is a part
just as
the blue sky
hanging in turquoise from her neck

  
oh woman
remember who you are
woman
it is the whole earth

Kate Nirlipta is an inspiring beautiful teacher, she taught me how to balance my unbalanced guna's, she gave encouragement with her compassion and I had special emotional moment through her session class. Thank you for guiding me to understand the "Svadhyaya" and the yoga lifestyle about "cleaning the mirror" and "spreading the light". Always love her meditation, relaxation and evening activity. Love the healing power of song "I am the light of my soul" every time I hear the song my heart & soul feels like a blooming lotus flower. I feel so blessed to have you as my teacher and you have helped me to spread my wings…absolutely transforming. Terima kasih banyak ibu cantik. Love always

I am delighted to recommend Kate Nirlipta to anyone at all who is interested in experiencing heart based wisdom through embodied yoga. She is simply the best yoga teacher I have been fortunate enough to learn from. Her approach remains influential in my own practice and teaching. Kate first inspired me fifteen years ago to practice yoga. I was an ex dance teacher still grappling with issues resulting from a car accident and a crushed T12. Her sensitive and knowledgable teaching helped me discover a new way of experiencing my self and my body and began my love affair with the transformative power of yoga on all levels. She also introduced me to the incredible practice of Yoga Nidra . Last year in 2012 I attended a yoga teacher training intensive in Bali largely for the opportunity to again learn from Kate. Her mastery as a teacher and her heart felt warmth and compassion was acknowledged and highly valued by all in the course who were wide ranging in age and cultural backgrounds. She embodies her teaching and has encouraged us all to find our own authentic way to do this in our practice and the classes we offer. I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn from her and would encourage anyone of any age or experience to take to opportunity to learn from this outstanding teacher.

I love yoga with Kate! Yoga day is my favourite day of the week, a special time I dedicate to myself.
Kate has shown me that yoga is so much more than postures and stretches.Her knowledge and experience is shared gently with love and kindness.The Breathing Space studio is filled with loving, healing energy. Natural light floods the room, the birds sing in the garden and the ocean waves area gentle sigh in the distance. A very special place to practice yoga and meditation.
I feel blessed to have found Kate and her classes. Her yoga is the real deal, truly a mind, body and spirit experience. Thank you Kate.
