For me it's the permission to soften, to ease up, to accept what is, not to strive or get frustrated when the asana isn't quite what I expect. There is the opportunity to let go and experience a more mindful presence of my body and perhaps notice more balance, fluidity and cohesion in how I approach and practice yoga.
Every single day it takes work and commitment, especially when we’re 'not in the mood’ to work on ourselves. But the result is the better feelings, the kindness and compassion in our thoughts, words, actions, the conscious choices we make for ourselves and our environment. And with this, we can inspire and have a positive impact on at least one person, which is how we are contributing to the solution, helping to move the needle to some degree. and making a difference to the whole.
