In this episode of Yoga Radio with Katrina Ariel:
2012 has been prophesized as a time of great transitions and, so far, it hasn’t disappointed.
The things that aren’t working are breaking down. The president of Germany has just stepped down, there are protests in Greece and in many other places everyday people are taking measures to Occupy and say “We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore!”
Revolution about taking back your own power, and not giving it to anyone. This has been one of the major themes in the scandal that has rocked the yoga world, with John Friend, the founder of Anusara yoga (and with whom I studied extensively and learned tons), exposed as a human being who makes mistakes and hasn’t been walking his talk.
For me and many others, it has been a time of letting go of anyone I’ve held on a pedestal and stepping fully into trusting my own knowing and power.
In this show I have an excellent talk with Ginger Coy, who brought us the Bay Shakti blog, about the universal teachings these times of transition are offering up right now, and how you can apply some of these ideas to the transitions you face in your own life.

Yoga Radio: The Potency of Transitions and Revolution with Ginger Coy
Recorded LIVE on the VoiceAmerica network February 23, 2012.
It is Ginger’s belief that sharing information is sharing energy, and as you share energy, you share a thread that connects you to others. As everyone shares different threads, the tapestry is woven, and the fabric of life is all the more richer. As one of us is uplifted so is the rest!
What you’ll find in Ginger’s classes is a welcoming quality of earnestness and a safe space for you to explore strengthening, alignment, and heart opening. Ginger combines playfulness and seriousness, and endeavors to be ‘seriously playful’.
You can visit BayShakti.com to read archived articles by Ginger and many other excellent writers.

“Dance, when you’re broken open.
Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you’re perfectly free.”
