And here is a really good article from Manduka (my go-to-MAT).
Please read and share:) Here !
Do we want a vibrant community filled with happier people? Just add-on support of local yoga studios as one of the ways. Here’s a small business with integrety of the teaching, aka: quality. It’s usually an operation borne out of love for yoga and if the owners are teachers, you are at the right place. It’s kind of like a restaurant where the owner chef comes out to greet you – it’s that same vibe of caring. I’ve taught at gyms, corporate, and studios and … teaching at the studio is usually most challenging because you feel so much more responsible. Especially when you have a brand new student, OH MY GOD, you are so honored. But responsible.
If you are getting take-outs or even getting to restaurant tables, just extend that love for small businesses to include yoga studios. Yoga fuels you, nourishes you and sustains you as much as that morsal you placed in your mouth. If they are gone, the community suffers especially now that I anticipate more need for people to decompress, move their bodies, reconnect with their breath and balance out the nervous system in the fray … to find their inner-strength and calm during this time of extreme anxieties and stress. That – we can all benefit from.
Yoga teaches us that life is BEAUTIFUL no matter what and all the suffering makes us stronger to appreicate the good and even the bad. To be able to find joy in the mundane ordinary little things … it’s what yogis practice. It’s what you practice with us. With no judgement, calibrating our optimal health by boosting our immune system … you need not get into pretzel pose to attain that -feel your breath and feel the NOW. Namaste:)
