Seane:  It’s not surprising. Some people do yoga for years and never move past the physical. I don’t believe you can get to God through your head, only through your heart. When you’re able to surrender to faith, that’s when you open yourself up to the Divine. If people attach themselves to the physical aspect, I’m fine with that; keep doing it. I don’t care if it takes 40 years, but if you keep doing it, then ultimately, if it’s your karma, you’ll be able to shift to the next level. I love to see athletes coming to class and do extra push-ups. That’s great, because it’s just a matter of time. It kind of sneaks up on you that way.

Edie:  You talk about the ideas connected with yoga, that it’s a flow and a process, movement by movement, breath by breath. Is that the way you see life as well?

Seane: Oh yeah, absolutely. I don’t always live that way, but the bigger part of me definitely sees the unfolding happening, and that every experience has spiritual consequences. There’s no right or wrong. It’s just that you go into an experience and think, “Okay, I can make this choice or that choice; either one will open up a door and lead me into a different part of my evolution, a different drama.” As long as I stay present to the experience, I am going to get so much value out of the moment, whether it’s regret or passion.

I see vinyasa in every single moment, from the mundane, say washing dishes, to the profound, such as relating to my boyfriend’s children. It’s moment by moment, breath by breath, learning to stay absolutely present in whatever is right in front of you-- not looking for it to be different, but embracing it for what it is, and seeing the unfolding happening quite magically.

I believe that our entire destiny is based on choices that we make. I want to be very conscious of the choices I make, so they are less reactive and more intuitive. Vinyasa is absolutely a state of mind, a state of being, rather than simply an asana practice.

Edie: It sound like a conversation I had recently with a friend about living in miracle awareness, that when you are living in the here and now, you are aware of it, you become it. That is what yoga has been about, that the breath always brings us back to this moment, because if you don’t breathe, you don’t live.

 Seane:  Exactly. That’s really all we have. I went to tons of workshops and was like a sponge and would absorb so much information. What I would start doing was noticing, mostly women, arms folded over their third chakra, writing information down furiously, nodding their heads, not breathing. I thought “Oh, my God, if I could take them out of this environment, give me 15 minutes to offer them the same information while they’re moving, while they’re breathing. It would be experiential, where they embody it and feel it, rather than just absorb it. They would take it in deeper.” That was when I became interested in taking the psychological aspect and self help aspect, and creating transformational journey work on the mat. They’re never really looking at me; I‘m constantly moving around the room and offering insights.
