Good morning, mindful ones! I have a question for you … do you practice yoga off of your mat? And I don’t mean doing yoga poses in public and taking pictures- though there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that!
Our practice isn’t confined to the mat or to the poses we create with our bodies. It’s designed to spill over into our daily lives.
As we learn kindness, tolerance, compassion and love towards ourselves, naturally these attributes overflow from our hearts and encompass all of those around us.
As you go about your day today, can you see all the ways yoga has profoundly impacted your life? It’s easy to get focused on the physical practice; I was personally stuck there for many years. When we start to see our yoga off of our mats, we know that the practice is working.
Just for today, take interest in everything around you. Observe the sunset. Be a spectator of today’s’ lunar eclipse. Be kind to strangers. Be patient with annoying people. Let that aggressive driver merge front of you. Basically don’t be a jerk.
