A yoga practice is a powerful place to start creating an honest and joyful life. Here are a few ideas that are inspiring me right now:
Give up attachment To things, people, ideas...This doesn't mean we change how we love, what we do or what we have. It just means that we don't let our sense of self and happiness be wrapped up in these things, ideas, and people.
Turn toward what is important Letting what we value gain power by paying attention to it. Finding behavior and qualities in yourself that you admire and giving them space in you heart, mind and life to grow. Like patience, compassion, truthfulness, honesty and love.
Use the breath to find a calm and joyful place within And then find it again and again and again... as often as needed, and as often as we remember. Get quite and easy for a few minutes each day and watch your sense of santosha grow.
I am excited to share with you the details of a workshop I will be co-teaching with the delightful Alicia Lofgren at Yoga Tree SF in March. Mark your calendars and sign up soon. Space is limited.
