I led a beginners class this morning. One of the participants told me before we started that she doesn’t like yoga because it’s boring.
She is so wrong and so right! Yoga poses stripped of any meaning are just that – poses. To fall in love with yoga means to understand the healing and emotional qualities of practice. The way we breathe, balance, feel and flow brings meaning to asanas; it gives them the fire that burns within.
So I talked; about pranayama, tapas, flow and freedom. Asanas became a pen that wrote a story. In case you wonder, the skeptical student is coming back next week.
In love and light,
