Whether we choose to practice non-violence because of a certain spiritual beliefs or simply because we are human and sometimes have the calling to be a better person, we can all relate. So where do we start?
Do you often find yourself judging?
When we judge ourselves or others we don't practice yoga.
The first ethical rule of yoga is Ahimsa: non-harming, when you judge yourself or others you are hurting someone with your thoughts as well as sending them that negative energy. You are also operating from your ego.. " I am better than this person, because I don't do this/I would handle this better/I expect more of myself" thus belittling yourself or others a way.
Every month we'll be featuring one of our wonderful students! We'll ask them a couple questions and as a community we can all get to know eachother a little more.
When people hear I teach yoga I often get responses such as:
“I’m so bad at yoga.”
“I’m not flexible enough to do yoga.”
“I would love to come to class, but I can’t touch my toes.”
After getting these types of responses, more than usual lately, there is something I would really like to share.
