Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind. My yoga instructors in my yoga camp class this week have been reminding us of what this means every day. It means, simply, that yoga is a state in which the mind is not cluttered with thoughts not based in reality. When the mind is clear of clutter, it is as if more space opens up creating more room for insight. Yoga is about leaving all egos at the door. It is not a competition. It is not about how strong or flexible you are. Yoga is the practice of creating peace within the mind and body by performing poses and stretches while using breathing techniques. Again, it is about finding inner peace and connecting within, it is not a competition. Love and respect your body for what it is capable of doing.
Practice saying Namaste to all those that really drive you nuts today.
