Home Yoga Practice: Honesty and Quiet Mind

This insertion of silence is a crucial part of yoga practice. Turning off the distractions of phones, computers, music, other people’s voices …. Leaves us alone with the inner distractions and chatter. It helps isolate our attention. It helps create an honest and authentic space of practice. It makes it your own.

I’m not gonna lie. It can also drive us crazy! I notice how after a few times through I sequence I can hear my inner voice say, “cool, now you know what would make this better? Let’s play some Beyonce to the sequence next!”

Set an intention, but be open for course corrections

Intention does not replace surrender to truth. Intention should direct us toward it. Intention also isn’t the destination. When the drive becomes the objective we get consumed in constant doing that goes nowhere.

Pandemic yoga for kids: The good, the bad, the virtual

Yoga presents challenges for kids in the best of situations. Attention spans are fleeting. Desire for stimuli and excitement is great. Disappointment at not getting things perfectly the first time prevails.

Virtual yoga via whatever video screen they had available made this summer day camp extra special.

Week 3: Practice your plan, Plan your Practice – Effort

Our yoga practice is a great canvas for us to explore and learn about effort. Poses show us when we are straining or giving up. Breath reveals the quality of our ease. Our mind can be the birth place of our effort and where we cultivate sustainable effort, aka focus.

Week 2: Plan your practice, Practice Your Plan – acceptance and binding

Acceptance of what happens is certainly a worthwhile chew for our times. The pandemic and our fight for freedom, justice and equality can stir discontent. At least it keeps our focus on what’s wrong and the need to fix. It can feel like acceptance means we are OK with the state of the world. It doesn’t.
