Hello everyone, Happy Summer. When we can visit our families without testing we shouldn’t forget the older ones with delicate immune systems.
I just got back after a long awaiting trip with my daughter from London. This was the trip I decided not to participate in any yoga teachings and simply enjoy it like a real vacation.
After going through a difficult transition, my perspective on life has changed so much. Specifically, being a yoga teacher during the pandemic lead to many hardships. I forgot to live my life and realized that my mindset has changed. We are still worried about the joy of living life freely. Living a normal life with financial hardship takes away all the freedom and brings pressure. I constantly think about tomorrow with doubt and planning. Now I returned and looked back and thought I was waiting for the moment to flourish but unseen worries took the way that time.
Time is very precious as long we are here together and health permits having fun.
This year we are celebrating yoga for humanity which holds heavy responsibility for each other. In our community or our home, there is a responsibility and when we represent ourselves in the public world whatever we do there is a commitment. Human values and societies encourage people to act in a kind and sympathetic way toward others, even toward people they do not agree with or like.
The philosophy of Yoga and the practice of Asanas and breathing teaches us what and how to breathe in and out in a crisis. Then we create that connection in our body and mind where the soul flourishes.
Being human means we have developed brains and emotions. Thoughts, feelings, weaknesses, or errors are typical of humans rather than machines. By practicing yoga we can acknowledge that we’re made from the earth and will return to the earth.
I hope you all have a fun and safe summer.
