We have to stay smart and healthy in our yoga practise/teaching.
Thank you Jill Miller for sharing your story about hyper-mobility.
Every year, and all the time, since I became a certified yogateacher, I have studied with different yoga/meditationteachers, learned from my teachings (thank you students), read all kind of philosophy, but most important, I have explored my body and my inside.
Ofcourse I also like to ’over-stretch’ some time (I am only human) but as soon as I do, I keep reminding myself why I perform and teach yoga; The essence of yoga is the most precious and highly valuable of all other things I have explored in my life. The magical truth about the inside, and how we can use more kindness to ourself. Through all my Yoga, Vipassana, Hypnosis, Reiki and Shaman- (and life it self) explorations I’ve learned how to heal the past, be more present and accept the one I truly am. To reset and find a more comfortable way of treating myself. It’s really been illuminating and valuable for my life, yoga practise but also for my sharing as a teacher and Reiki healer.
In Samasthitiyoga we use initiating to give a promise towards ourself to stay good, honest and loving. We practise how we can love and care more about our precious inner self. This will not only give peace to the self also peace to the world.
