This is not a race. You do not have to run. You might even slow down. Take a look around…
As much as I teach yoga – I practice it. That means everyday I wake up and yes, everything is new. I may have insights that others do not yet possess but it does not mean that I am not susceptible to failure, loss and raging insecurity.
I am still learning. I must learn to be ok with this. Otherwise, I am simply fighting what already is. I become my own obstacle. In relaxing towards the flow of life – I step out of my own way. In being humble about my own practice of yoga – I (hopefully) allow others to see what I teach as completely accessible to them as well. That we are not alone in our struggles – our problems are not unique to us.
Yoga is beyond our physical asana. It is a daily practice of showing up to life – heart and arms wide open to all that we are meant to experience.
Take a deep breath.
Now get to it.
