My yoga practice enhances my life, for me both life and yoga are one of the same thing.
This week my class inspiration is the word SIMPLE. As teachers and students of yoga we advised that our asanas (postures) are both easy and comfortable. But the effort it takes to be comfortable and cultivate ease can in itself be complicated. Our mind create as much tension as injuries, and life experience and physical limitations restrict our ability to be easy and comfortable. However the word SIMPLE is just that, its simple.So to help students I looked to up meaning of simple and here we go, I hope you find words that might help with practice for living and yoga asana.
A simple solution
Straightforward, easy, uncomplicated, uninvolved, effortless, painless, manageable, undemanding, unexacting, elementary, child’s play, plain sailing, a five-finger exercise, nothing;
Not difficult, hard, demanding, complicated,basic, fundamental, uncomplicated in form, nature, or design; without much decoration or ornamentation.
It is though always worth checking in with the yoga scriptures and for many of us working with the 8 limbs of yoga. The Yamas and the Niymas given to us by Patanjali.
Laws of life and rules for living are also a guide is useful.
The laws life are 5
Non – Violence
The rules for living are 5
Surrender to the lord (self)
Yoga sutras chap II vs 40
Simplicity destroys identification with the body, and brings freedom from contact with other bodies.
Practice living in the present, don’t let the mind be complicated by the excitement of love and opportunity, or negative stress. Keep thought SIMPLE, it takes effort for sure but when we are not on the rollercoaster of the ups and downs and no longer been thrashed about by our tensions and stresses life jus become SIMPLE.
