Believe it or not I wrote this while standing in the pub after the last Singles Yoga class, watching everyone around me who’d been at the class having a great time at the social!
Yoga is a sense of unity, which through repeated practice on the mat, starts to permeate through your entire being consciously as being your natural state. That feeling becomes transferable as the common denominator across all areas of your life.
The whole of life becomes your yoga practice, dropping things away which don’t tie in with that sense of unity. So it starts to permeate all — your social life, your relationships, your work; it all becomes your centre, your ‘practice’.
When your whole life becomes your practice, what exactly are we ‘practicing’ for?
It’s the sense of unity we feel in our heart, our core, as that aspect of us, some call it Soul, is forever unified and part of the light which Illumines all. So the yoga practice is ultimately about expanding the perfection of seed soul which exists within and making it as big as possible in your life.
Your life becomes your seed soul expanded; there is nothing excluded from the light that switches on when you do something you Love.
What is Love? It is the engagement with the prompting of your soul.”
I also like this too…
In essence, yoga is the harmonious connection of body, mind and spirit. It translates literally as “union,” I remind my yoga students of this during class, not to push or over-extend, as when we do so we fall out of union or harmony. Harmonious yoga on a mat is the metaphor and practice for harmonious movement in life, of living in tune with all aspects of our being.”
