Seattle Yoga News – Dr. Svoboda Lecture on Promoting Longevity in Kali Yuga
The very first required reading for my Pranayama training was an article called Cultivating Prana, by Dr. Robert Svodoba. I had no clue who he was, and what he was talking about (I’m *still* trying to figure out what he’s talking about, but I guess that’s why they call it learning). What I’ve always retained from my first time reading the article is the idea of a Right Pace:
Whoever you may be, and wherever you may live, you live your life well when you live it at the right rate. Plow your way through life and life will wear you out; poke your way along and your life will grind to a halt. Find a pace that suits you, though, and amble along it accordingly, and your world will spontaneously level a path for you.
Life requires of each of us a judicious stride, a step that causes every particle of our being to reverberate with rapport. Some of us find our stride without much effort; a few of us are even born ready to canter. But lots of us stumble along from day to day like we had two left feet, trying in vain to intellectualize our way through life when what all that life asks of us is that we let our prana do our walking for us.
Anyhow, Dr. Svodoba is coming to Seattle this Sunday, November 1st, from 1-4pm at Planet Earth Yoga Center in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. The topic will be on Promoting Longevity in Kali Yuga.
