We want to stay fit – but we’d also love to be healthy, vital and more relaxed so we can truly enjoy ourselves. If you think about it in a long-term perspective, there’s so much more we could do for ourselves than just repeating the same schedule no matter how we’re feeling.
Every day is different, so are our needs – sometimes we’re more energetic, and at other times we really need to regenerate. Listening to the needs of the body and providing it with proper adjustments, is believed to be one of the best ways to stay balanced and benefit profoundly from yoga practice. Balance in the tradition of Ayurveda, Indian medicine and lifestyle, is in fact a definition of health. And healthy body is a happy one. 🙂
The journey towards the better balance.
So, how are you feeling? What would you need today to feel better?
Sometimes it’s not that easy to know it, meaning – to be fully and entirely aware of it at once. One reason for that can be that we tend to lose focus easily and get off the track, carried away by thinking and, in a result, chasing our thoughts instead of staying fully aware of a moment. Lost in thoughts is a perfect phrase to illustrate the state of mind in such a moment. 🙂
What does it mean in practice?
Whichever class or style we take, it’s entirely up to us how we adjust our focus or what’s the given day’s intention or need. It’s entirely up to you how hard you practice and which part of a session is the most important for you. Just reflecting on that idea right before your class could be a wonderful practice of listening within and staying more balanced!
So – how are you today…? 🙂
