A few years ago, I ventured out into the forest in Sweden for several days to sit and meditate and feel my inner nature reflect the absolute nature. As I prepared for this with my teacher, he told me that asking "why" would not serve me out there; to ask every other question but not "why." I didn't understand at the time and of course wanted to ask him, "why not why?" . After the 2nd or 3rd day of sitting alone, cold, wet and naked, (I was naked to remove more of the things that separated me from nature,) I understood why not to ask why. During the first few days, I was feeling miserable. I was bored; I didn't have a strong meditation practice at the time, and I wasn't use to sitting and meditating for 12-15 hours a day, I wanted to do anything to distract myself from myself. I was hungry; I was only given a minimal amount of food that was supposed to last me for nine days. I was lonely; being miles away from people with no phone in the dense dark Swedish forest really made me feel isolated. I couldn't understand why I put myself in this situation. "Why" crept in, why am I here? My life is so good, why am I doing this to myself? Why do I feel like this when it is so beautiful around me? So many whys? The more I wanted to understand "why" the more suffering I created. Eventually, I was able to let go of the need for reason, I surrendered myself to nature, and for the first time, I honestly felt connection on a level I had not experienced before. It was the first time I was truly connected to myself. I still ask why, but I also know when not to ask why. Sometimes the need to know why will only bring suffering, because there are no reasons that some things happen. But more often the "why" comes after the experience and gives the experience a deeper meaning than you could ever hope for if you spent the entire time looking for reasons instead of surrendering to possibilities. .

The body is a gift when taken care of but can be burden when neglected. . How I feel physically and emotionally is in direct correlation with my physical asana practice and my daily meditation. People ask me what motivates me to practice every day and it’s simple, I feel better when I do my practice and worse when I don’t. . What motivates you to practice? . #shortsby @aloyoga

Move with the speed of movement. . Yoga is a movement. A social progression based on an ancient system that is being carried forward by modern people with the same original intention; to find peace through connection, eliminate suffering and join together in a union to understand truth. The face of yoga has changed as well as the practitioners, the poses, and the movement, but as long as the intention stays the same, yoga will continue to evolve gracefully. As modern yoga grows, we are going to see changes. Yoga is an ancient system, but very little that we do today looks anything like that system. We need to move beyond terming things as "is yoga" or "not yoga" based on definitions that aren't even relevant to the original yoga and see yoga for what it truly is, a progression of the mind and body connection. . wearing @aloyoga #yoga

I was actually 20 when I first started doing yoga, although I don't really think this is when I started practicing yoga. I was practicing a mixed martial art called Hap Do Sool and the Grandmaster would have us doing yoga once a week to help with flexibility. While it was technically asana, it always felt more like martial arts than yoga. Sometimes the Grandmaster would heel kick us in the stomach while we were holding navasana! How many yoga classes have you been to where the teacher did that?! . I first wandered into a yoga studio when I was 29. There was something very different to this yoga than what I had experienced in the past. After that, I was in the yoga studio or at home practicing on my mat every day. @aloyogalaunched #alogives, a nonprofit that is dedicated to bringing yoga and mindfulness to the world by providing a free curriculum of yoga videos to introduce the practice of yoga and meditation to children around the world.

Maybe some of you were wondering about my absence

Hey, I'm back! I just made it into Singapore. . Maybe some of you were wondering about my absence from social media. For the past two weeks as I have been in China, teaching and I've been blocked from IG. . China has something known as the "Great Firewall" which blocks much of the internet and many apps from its citizens. This draconian system of censorship dictates what you can search and view on the internet. Google, Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube are some of the sites that are blocked in China. . While this has been a nice time for me to take a break from my phone and email, it's also been challenging since this break wasn't wanted. You might ask why I didn't use a VPN? VPNs are becoming harder for people to use in China and mine didn't work while I was there. . It makes me appreciate the simple freedoms I have such as the freedom of information and how so much of the world still doesn't have access and is being controlled by their government. .

dylanwerneryoga's Media: Have you ever had some many things that you need to do and no desire or motivation to do any of it?

Have you ever had some many things that you need to do and no desire or motivation to do any of it? That is pretty much me right now. Especially because of 90% of what I need to do requires me to sit behind a computer and I have no desire to sit behind a computer screen. Luckily I'm flying to China tomorrow, so that will force me to get some stuff done on the super long plane ride, but unfortunately most of what I need to do requires internet.. . What do you do to motivate yourself? . Here's an older photo of my friend @meliniseriand I from when I was at @aloyogain NY. I don't have any new photo's because I haven't taken any. 🤷‍♂️😅

Back in London! . I’ve been here a lot lately. It’s easy to have a lost sense of belonging since I don’t have a home. I’m lucky to have great friends here that make me feel at home every time I show up. (Super special thanks to @louis_dorignyfor making his home my home 🙏) To answer your DM’s here, I am not teaching in London this trip but I will be teaching here at @indabayoga in April. . If you’re in Asia, I’m heading there next to teach with @pureyogaofficial in Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore and Hong Kong. Go to my website for details. .

dylanwerneryoga's Media: The practice of meditation begins with the observation of the mind, to see and understand where it

The practice of meditation begins with the observation of the mind, to see and understand where it is going and how it’s moving. To watch it as an objective observer not a subjective experiencer. This is a process of understanding yourself and understanding your natural tendencies as they arise in the present moment. Through observing and understanding the minds natural movement we are able to invite stillness. This meditative state allows for a window of truth, to see things as they truly are without our emotions, past or projections. Observation of the self and understanding of truth is not limited to meditation but expanded and manifested through our intention for harmony and connection and reflected through our state of being in the truth. .
