Translating Yoga into Daily Actions


I realised I have been practising yoga for a long time… It’s only 3 years ago I started my “phyisical practice”, and 2 since I became a teacher. But yoga is a lifestyle. It’s about how you treat yourself and others. How you eat, how open you are, how honest you are, how giving, how loving, how determined, how patient, how disciplined, how compassionate, how honest. Yoga is the path of truth. It’s making an effort to look inwards, embracing who you are and how you feel, choosing love and no fear, trying to be the best you can be at each moment.
Today I went to a drop-class at a new studio. Right after, still in the studio, I engaged in a conversation with some people from the group. They spoke about how good or bad they were at yoga in terms of flexibility and strength. Like if it was a sort of workout. And that inspired me to share some of the yoga concepts, and how they are applied in our lives…

Oneness: A recognition that everything is universally connected, with a deep regard for how you impact yourself and others, using your thoughts, feelings and actions.

Truth: Not only the ability to know, evaluate and say what you really think, but also living your life in alignment with your truest, highest ideals for yourself.

Alignment: The understanding that wherever you’re holding yourself back from being honest, you’re suffering the results of that misalignment. And when you’re truly living your dream, you’re aligned, open, capable of fearless communication and ready for anything.

Love: Truly loving yourself and others means coming from a place of balance, in which you can regard your own truth — and that of another — with equal weight and respond from your heart in any moment.

The way you treat yourself and others shapes your life. Living yoga makes your life a truthful reflection of who you are.
