“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.”
-The Bhagavad Gita
Yoga found me a few years ago when I decided to dive into a meditation retreat in India. It didn’t come without its challenges of course, as I’d never taken a class before and wasn’t sure I could “quiet my mind” to meditate. I knew very little of what I was getting into spiritually speaking. I kept competing with myself for a deeper experience, which was only pulling me further away from having one. I was told I had to relax and let go of my need to identify the outcome.
Eventually something got through. I was learning to let my fear drop away. Integrating what everyone had been talking about, melting into it all. In large it was thanks to the compassion of those I endured these experiences with. But ultimately, it would be the great reveal of the strength I found when I had only my vulnerability to hold on to.
Regardless of their fitness background or yoga experience, everyone is encouraged to take part in this non-competitive practice. This is a meditative sequence that will help reduce stress and improve the quality of your entire system; be it mental, physical, emotional or existential. There is something for everyone.
