Everything should be in service of balance.
Foundation and connection. These are the things we find, these are the things that make our practice.
The essence of life is choice. The essence of yoga is learning to choose well.
All you need to do is let yourself be held.
Recognize the scale at which you should live your life.
Sometimes our feelings of negativity stem from feeling powerless. But there is always something that we can do, even if it’s just to get on our mat.
I used to think, when the sutras said the practice came in three gradations, mild, medium and spicy, that spicy must mean lots of backbends.
But the real measure of the practice, the real spicyness, is the extent to which we can assert our right to what we need.
I’ll be subbing for Paul and Sommer’s Anusara 1/2 class at 9:00am at Carrboro Yoga Company, 200 N. Greensboro St., Suite C1, Carroboro, NC 27510.
