    Is spirituality a loaded word?

    By admin

    Is yoga a “spiritual” practice? I can hardly bare to use the word “spiritual.”

    It probably conjures up images of New Age self-help gurus for most, and makes people feel uncomfortable.

    If my yoga practice makes me feel better about myself, then I will be kinder to the people in my life. If I treat others with kindness, they are more apt to treat those in their circle with greater kindness. And thus we create an ever widening circle of kindness.

    What could be more spiritual than kindness?

    Don’t overthink, don’t over philosophize, and don’t even bother trying to get your foot behind your head.

    Step onto your mat daily, even if you have only 5 minutes to spare and start breathing deeply. Ground yourself, connect with yourself, and breathe the tension that burdens your mind and hardens your heart out of our body.

    Until you take care of yourself, you have absolutely nothing to offer others.

    Your capacity to love another is only as great as your capacity to love yourself.
