After workshop was completed, before leaving Iyengar Yoga Studio Bangkok,

I went to see my teacher.

ワークショップが終わって、バンコクのアイアンガーヨガ スタジオを去る前に

先生にご挨拶を。

She hold my hands and said

‘You practice well, have enough knowledge.

But Yoga is not only that, you know. Mostly you need us keep your mind cool.’

She looked in my eyes.

先生は私の手を握って私の目を見つめる。

「よく練習してる。知識もある。でも、ヨガはそれだけではないでしょう?

あなたに一番必要なことは、冷たい心を保つことだと思う。」

In Thai language, ‘cool mind’ means calm.

‘Hot mind’ means passion, impatience, anger.

My nature is fire.

I’m easy to fire up. Once I burned out.

タイ語で「冷たい心」では冷静さを、

「熱い心」は情熱、焦り、怒りを意味する。

私は強い炎。

すぐ燃え上がる。燃え尽きてしまった事もある。

She kept saying ’calm down’ to me,

when I was with her.

I left her over 6 years,

came back into fire-nature.

先生と居た時は、いつも「冷静に」と繰り返し言われていたのに、離れて6年。

すっかり元の炎に戻ってしまっていた。

*

When unexpected things happens, I fire up.

Do every things which should be done, were done with strong fire.

Once it’s done, I must be calm.

I hear her voice within. ‘Be calm. Be calm. Ba calm.’

Then I see things more clearly.

意外な事が起こると、つい燃え上がってしまう。

炎を持ってやるべき事をやり終えたら、冷静にならなければならない。

耳の内で先生の声が聞こえる。「冷静になって」

物ごとがより明確に見えてくる。

Having recovered from flu, I conducted 2 classes.

When finished, I lost voice. Vocal cords were inflamed.

Kept silence for 2 weeks with having strong medicines.

I felt weak, not much power, couldn’t practice in my normal-tough way.

 

The weakness let me think of my age, middle fifties.

 

Should I keep practicing this way? How long I can continue?

Fear drives me. Feeling of impatience. But I fear what?



I attended Stephanie Quirk workshop in Bangkok.

It’s about ‘9 Obstacles’ of Patanjari Yoga Sutra, which doesn’t include ‘Aging’.

 

Asked her about it, realized the 9th obstacle ‘backsliding’ is my fear.

I fear loss of current ability once again. It’s cold fear.

 

‘Practice with not quantity but quality’

All though her workshop, I reminded this words.

What it means? How to improve quality?

 

Her workshop had not many poses but demanded awareness and precision.

Felt unknown sensation, found new inner-frontier, learned how to explore.

Namaste Stephanie-ji

 

ステファニー クォーク ワークショップ

 

風邪から治ってすぐ2クラスを教えたら、声帯が炎症を起こして声が枯れてしまった。

キツイ薬を飲んで2週間沈黙。元気がなく弱く感じる。いつものハードな練習ができない。

弱さは、年齢を気づかせる。もう50代半ば。

いつもの練習続けるべきなのだろうか?いつまでできるんだろう。

恐れが、私を駆り立てる。焦燥感。でも、何を恐れているのか?

 

バンコクでステファニー クォーク先生のワークショップに参加。

パタンジャリのヨガスートラの「9つの障害」について。そこには「加齢」は含まれない。

 

先生とお話しして、私の恐れは第9番目の「障害」後退と気づく。

今できることが、又できなくなることへの恐れ。それは深い恐れだ。

 

「練習は量ではなく質」

ワークショップの間中、心に留める。その意味は?どうやって質を高めるのだろう。

 

ワークショップでのポーズは多くはなかった。でも、知覚と精確さを求められる。

初めての感覚。内なる未知の領域を見つける。その探求のしかたを学ぶ。

ステファニー先生、ありがとうございます。

 

 

‘It’s yours!’ my friend gave me with big smile.

Oh! It’s all right. The calories are very low!

Special thanks to Aosawa-san. The recipe is based on her book.

I love Japanese pickles but didn’t like pickles because of its sharp sourness.

I changed my opinion. Now I love pickles. My home-made pickles is fresh like salad!

‘Cut cleaned cabbage, pound it, mix with salt and spice, squeeze into a bottle.

It’s simple.’ ‘Is that all?’ ‘I’ll show you and tell the techniques.’

 

I went a workshop how to make pickles without vinegar but with fermentation, which was like experiments. I can’t write the detail and technique in here.

You might learn from him at my favorite restaurant in Bangkok.

 

Life is experiments. Try and error. Try again. Experience it.

If it’s succeed, enjoy until the bottom of the bottle. Why not?

 

When we have a meal with people,

we intake not only food but also space, time and feeling – energy.

So we get closer with having nice meal and chat.

Ayurveda teacher gave a lecture.

khao yam-my favorite Thai food

Thank you my friends

for having my favorite meals together, having lovely chat together.

That is greater thing than we think.

When I sat in Bangkok airport, I already missed my Bangkok friends

but tummy was filled with yummy foods. Heart was filled with their love.

 

Thank you the people who came to my workshops.

I’m so happy with you for sharing our moments-our life.

 

Wish you are happy now. See you again.

Action, Reaction and Beyond              作用、反作用 そしてそれを超えて

via Parvritta Trikonasana                   パリブリッタ・トリコナサナ 

*

Parvritta TrikonasanaRevolved Triangle pose is twisting and forward extending in standing, is challenging pose to find equability.

Why we loose balance? How we should work? What is happening? Where we go towards? It might be same in other poses.

三角ねじりのポーズは、回旋と前屈の要素を備えた立位のポーズで、均等性を見いだすのが難しいポーズです

なぜ、バランスを失うのでしょう?何を行い、何が起こり、何を目指すのでしょうか?それは、他のポーズでも同じかもしれません。

*

We learn optimum body alignment and movement though various poses.

Class is taught mainly in Japanese language.

いろいろなポーズを通して、身体の各部の最適な位置とその動きを学びます

主に日本語のクラスです。

One of my sis, Por

started teaching yoga

at the same place I used to teach.

Beautiful meditation room 

in Ariyasom Villa.

*

I was happy to see her happy face

saying had good time with students.

We practiced together long time.

I know her sincereness,

how happy her students are.

*

*

Thursdays prepare body and mind in Por’s restorative class

Little Bangkok Sangha‘s weekly meditation follows there.

Sit silently and blissfully. One mindful night in a week.

*

How about starting something new? From this week maybe?

*

Despite living in Singapore – greenish park city,

every time I come back to Bangkok, watch grayish streets from taxi window,

I feel I’m in my home town.

IMG_3994*

Staying in my home town

I’m enveloped with my friends smiles and kindness.

Gratitude to my friends

*

And also

Gratitude to the people who came to my workshops

in this unpredictable situation.

Love to see your shiny eyes

Shine from understanding.

*

*

Light a candle and pray.

Wish everyone is safe and peace

tomorrow in my home town.

‘It’s too sweet. They might add syrup.’ I complained.

‘So you might squeeze by yourself.’ My friend suggested adding

‘That is not lot of work.’ Really?

Cut watermelon into triangle with skin kept on.

Place colander on a bowl. Hold the skin, scrape watermelon flesh over the colander.

Seeds are left. Pour red water into a glass. Might add a little bit salt.

*

It has gentle sweetness. Sweeter than flesh.

My doubt was melted down.

Magical fresh red water run though throat. Refresh hot day.

*

I suffer for unevenness, lost my center.

A moment of silence. Rolfer answered to me

One day you will find your integration.

*

IMG_2036

I could’t believe him.

*

With implant in left chest,

body got stiff left side and hyper-mobile right side.

Teacher said I stood not straight.

Though my nerve said it was straight.

I confused, didn’t know where center was.

*

*

Sit in meditation

Muscles are still in balance.

Bones are still in unti-gravity.

Breath are in calmness.

Find a slight light of the center, my integration.
