HOW CAN YOGA CHANGE YOUR LIFE

How can yoga change your life? The only way in which yoga can be truly transformational is if we sustain a regular and reflective practice.This is the challenge we all face.

We all think our problems or daily duties are unique, and that if we only had more time we would practice! The truth is that if we make a start, however small, the time for practice will appear.

AMAZING CHANGE!

I see amazing examples of change through yoga. I see it in the eyes of my students, especially those on teacher training, for when they truly engage with their practice the transformation shines through. The change in their lives is inspiring, as new possibilities open before them. This may result in a new relationship, a growing sense of the bigger picture, and how we are all personally responsible for change and evolvement collectively. This leads us to question such things as eating meat and fish, for without personal transformation then collective transformation cannot happen.

GYMNASTICS

Alternatively, when students aren’t fully engaging with their practice, and just going through the motions the results can be detrimental. The student may still be able to perform gymnastics, but then be we become fixated on the outward appearance, which ensnares us in the eternal cycle of birth and death .

HOLISTIC PRACTICE

Yoga is an holistic practice, and any outwardly results of your practice are just a by-product. They can be considered as the manifestations of a practice and recognised for what they are. Any real change may be measured in our outlook and how we react to life’s challenges. A recognition that we are not separate or need to compete with people, but that we are all part of the macrocosm.

HOW CAN YOGA CHANGE YOUR LIFE EVIDENCE

Evidence of yoga as change may be seen through our heightened sense of self awareness, and how we impact on everything around us. We may become more aware of how our actions affect our reality, and how if we change our actions we change the world we perceive. We can actively begin to create our reality, from a position of what we need rather than what we think we want.

DHARMA & KARMA

One of the main themes discussed in detail on the Yoga Dharma Teacher Training courses is the concept of Dharma. Knowing what our Dharma is and applying Karma to our current circumstances will release us from blaming others for our what we have created.

Once we begin to think of yoga as a holistic practice, without expectations and rewards, we will develop  self-awareness and insight into what we really want.
