    Coming Home

    By admin

    As I’m on the road quite a bit these days, I think about what “home” really means.

    I no longer think of home as a physical location, but a feeling of being at ease.

    That feeling of internal comfort can only be experienced through alignment.

    Now alignment is something you hear a lot about in yoga, for instance in my video I posted from Nice, I explained that to keep your knees safe in crow pose, your knees have to track in the same direction as your toes. This will keep your body physically safe.

    To feel “at home” in your body, there’s a different kind of alignment that’s required and that’s alignment between your thoughts, your words and your actions. The more you study and practice yoga, the more difficult it is to act or speak misaligned with your deepest values. And that’s a good thing because that discomfort forces you to “clean up your act”. If you want to be experienced as a kind and loving person, then your speech and actions have to match that desire.

    Practicing yoga gives us an experience of peace, of being “home”. Knowing how that feels makes us crave that feeling more. The more you experience this peace, the less you can live with your misalignment.

    Yes, practicing yoga will make your physical body feel good, but more importantly it brings you home to yourself. To find out more about this inward journey home, check out my new online course, Heal Your Heart.
