Yoga’s alchemy offers a deepening within oneself, a movement from the periphery towards the core nature of being human.
Take a moment to consider your state of being when you first came to yoga. What was your experience of yourself in that first practice? How has your experience of yourself changed over the course of your yoga practice? How does yoga support your inner life and your current growth?
Yoga teaches us to be present and to source from within. Thus it is important to tune in to the awakened heart, aka. bodhichitta… The practice of yoga, including meditation and self-inquiry are a means to attune more with one’s own inner experience and with being awake. Amidst more challenging emotions and dynamics, Yoga can provide a reliable accessibility to wisdom and compassion and in addition, loving kindness.
Our hearts and minds open and become more vibrant as well as peaceful when we feel into ourself and others with loving kindness, aka. metta… An amazing and surprising spaciousness can also be felt in the body through the offering of metta. This can be a true healing and renewing experience which I invite each of you to do on your own (see resource below) or please join me this Saturday at 10 AM for Meditation and a metta practice (offering). Bring in the New Year with inner peace and joy!
