I was observing Indira creating a new yoga posture; mermaidasana. She looked quite gentile & tranquil sitting there with her legs outstretched, crossed at the ankles. She had placed her hands, crossed at the wrists, on her thighs, her torso was slightly twisted to one side & her head also to the side with her eyes downcast. Sublime, nice posture I was thinking.
The following answer from the above question, came to mind; written by Swami Niranjan.
"The answer is very simple; it can be given in one word - observe. As a yoga teacher you should have awareness; you should observe yourself, and you should always try to improve whatever you do. Try to perfect; try to do it better every time. Develop ichchha shakti, which is the positive aspect of desire, of want; kriya shakti, which is the energy of action; sankalpa shakti, the energy of determination; also vichara shakti, which is the energy of positive thinking. All the positive qualities of life have to be developed more and more. This does not mean that you should negate anything and everything that you consider bad. No. Here you are beginning to observe; there is no negation of any type. If you want to improve yourself and become creative, happy and successful in life, take everything in life as a form of sadhana.
This is something that most of us have observed in Swamiji (Satyananda). We see that he has taken every activity, every situation, every problem, every difficulty, and every joy in life as a form of sadhana. Therefore even today, if we find him surrounded by difficult people or difficult times, he is totally at home with everybody, and if he is surrounded by good people and good times he is still at peace with everything and everybody. Every single moment of life becomes a form of sadhana, a moment of sadhana, a process of sadhana.
It is probably the hardest thing to do, but we can always start with observation, observing how we feel, how we react, how we behave and how we think; and observing how we can make ourselves better in thinking, in action, in behaviour, in feeling, in projection and in receiving. Even as a person in business it is possible, and also as a sannyasin it is possible".

To me, it looks like they are both thinking about their master, the recently passed, Paramahansa Satyananda.
