Practicing Life

When we practice asana we often focus on telling our body what to do. We then carry this mindset into our days and do the same with others. The result--conflict in our lives and on our yoga mats. Have we really acheived Yoga? The next time you practice asana, try to let go of desire to force your body to do something or to attain some kind of idealized shape. Listen to your body, embrace the intelligence that is there in every cell and practice from that. Then when you are working, playing, interacting with others do the same. Really listen or just be and and absorb the beauty and intelligence of others. Now find the peace and happiness that not only comes to you, but to those around you. Namaste. Steve Galindo.
