Aparigraha or non-possesiveness: ‘We live in a material world but don’t be a material girl (or boy).
Greed is not the aim, take what you have earned and leave the rest on the table…
Sharing is caring… really…
I am a girl who fell in love with yoga 4 years ago. First of all for the flexibility it gave me, which helped me in my dance class and then, while finding myself deep in the clutches of a corporate 8am - 8pm, for the space and calm it brought to my life when I found myself feeling anxious, or simply unable to switch off.
This led me to a crossroads where I made the concious decision to take time to delve into the practice of self-care. I was the sort of person who would feel guilty if I wasn’t using every moment of the day ruthlesssly efficiently and the thought of taking time for myslef was a concept I had never entertained before. Yoga allowed me to “breathe and reboot” virtually guilt free, which was a novel and wonderful concept!! The increased flexibility and strength turned out to be just a wonderful side effect of my new found “me time.”
I completed my 200hr yoga training with the fantastic Sally Parkes and can honestly say that the year for 2017 will forever be one that changed my life. I met some fantastic friends and learnt so much more about myself as a person, another lovely side effect of yoga!
I am now on a journey to share the wonderful effect yoga has had on my life with others. If I can change your life even 1% of the way it changed mine, then that would put a HUGE smile on my face :)
