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.
