Hello everyone! I've collected some of my posts from our Facebook page! They're from our Managing Roadblocks to Wellbeing Collection 1 of practical & relatable yoga mindsets, which I'm updating at the same time.
We go though yoga mindsets in a practical, relatable and belief-neutral way, so you can use them in your everyday life.
This blog will be updated as we go along. Have a read and enjoy!
So, here we go:
Some days, simple reminders are enough...to live in HUMILITY, KINDNESS & LOVE.
Does it sound a bit woo-woo to you?
I understand if you feel that it is; it is unfortunate that others voice this truism in an esoteric way.
But the truth is, it's all about how we relate to each other.
Sometimes, we just click well with certain people. Then, there are those we just can't.
If we adjust our mindset to a willingness to live in harmony with each other - not just tolerance or have a nonchalant, "whatever" attitude - even the discordant "notes" in our life will have their place.
Would you believe me if I say that the most common barrier to our happiness is our own ego?
Establishing a yoga practice grounded in dedication, patience & sincerity goes beyond the flow; these values help us tap into our self-care, empowerment, kindness and take these into our everyday life & share it with others.
The same is true for the non-physical aspects of yoga. Making the emotional and mental aspects also practical and relatable yoga mindsets creates an achievable, dedicated practice.
I'll admit to something here - sometimes I make my classes a tad bit challenging on purpose .
But hang on, I have a perfectly good reason!
There's still a lot of skewed perceptions on what a yoga class is "supposed to be". Some think it's "just" stretching, some think it's purely spiritual, some think it "shouldn't be this tough"...
Sentences in quotations are actual, btw.
What I always say is that yoga isn't just for the body, but for the mind and emotions as well.
What better way to underpin this but by throwing in challenges that invite you to have an honest discussion with yourself with the intention of cultivating self- awareness, confidence, self-love and self-acceptance.
You can stop and rest or tease the challenge - either option is an opportunity for growth.
