In my case, instead of Tropical Paradise, I am going for Breathtaking Rocky Mountain Alpine Chalet with my Balsam & Cedar candle from ILLUME, Native American motif (per light throw blanket for decorative effect), large terrarium, decanter bottle with cork (as of now, empty) ...

A God's Eye will be my yantra ...

again, not certain about adding in background music ...

but, you get the idea ....

So, my breath passages were continually opened up by the heady but airway-clearing scent of fir trees. Being, in physical reality, actually at the top of a hill (where I live) ... at about 110 feet above sea level give or take, and not 11,000 feet ... of course I would just simulate the assorted feelings of shallow breath at high elevations--at times of transcending my edge

[my practice has evolved beyond its being middle path again ...]

Maintained steadiness in the peak pose, crow - in my case, held very low-slung to the ground, parallel to my mat, nearly; for three breaths ... until the point where my heart got to beating very, very fast and I let-go ... continuing practice ...

My practice is lengthy, mild, challenging, invigorating ... and even starts in on the chakras ... is without music these days ...

So, what is needed is Ambience ...


The official Merriam-Websters definition:

am·bi·ence noun - ˈam-bē-ən(t)s, ˈäm-bē-än(t)s -
- the mood or feeling of a particular place

Full Definition of AMBIENCE

a feeling or mood associated with a particular place, person, or thing - atmosphere

Variants of AMBIENCE

am·bi·ence or am·bi·ance

Examples of AMBIENCE

the ambience of a tropical island

-the exurb has the unmistakable ambience of old money

Origin of AMBIENCE

French ambiance, from ambiant ambient
First Known Use - 1815

So, perhaps I this article suggests turning your yoga practice (solitary or with a friend, etc.) into some kind of theme party ...

Good article - a few little changes can make it feel like a retreat. I liked the idea about candles.

What a wonderful idea. I keep thinking I want to create a "permanent" yoga space in my house. I like this idea of creating an "event" yoga space.

This blog post gives me plenty of ideas .....

"After drooling over their photos, I logged out and put my computer aside. Steph’s and Christa’s serene smiles had given me a flash of inspiration! While I couldn’t book a trip to Tulum (I have other trips planned for 2012), I could still create my own sweet tropical retreat at home. "

for the rest, read Alexis' blog here ...

I think it even works for non-travelers, too ... emoticon
