Practice is uncovering the resistance.

Living Your Yoga: Step on your mat and practice Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing-Dog Pose).  Breathe into your physically tight spots and into your mental agitation.  Remember that practice allows resistance to surface so it can fly away.

The depth of my practice is revealed by how many times a day I get angry.

Living Your Yoga: We cannot become angry unless we believe we are right.  Today when you feel irritated about something, breathe deeply and allow being right to melt into being present.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the quotes that I’ve been sharing are from Judith Hanson Lasater’s A Year of Living Your Yoga.  My mother gave me the book for Christmas and today…is her birthday!  Happy birthday mom 🙂

Become a larger container for Spirit.

Living Your Yoga: Recently, a friend recounted to me a situation in which she experienced what she called the “shocking pettiness” of her life.  As you practice today, imagine yourself with a bigger heart, and from there bestow your generosity.  For example, give away something to a person who needs it, or better yet give your long-overdue forgiveness.

Life is holy.

Living Your Yoga: One of my favourite verses of the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali (I:23) can be expressed as Practice the presence of God.  Can you find God in the ritual of a forward bend or the softness of an inhalation done with awareness?  When you do this, God becomes a practice, not just an idea.

Each moment has the same potential for wholeness.

Living Your Yoga: Wholeness is found not only in the special moments of being lost in an exquisite sunset or feeling the perfect balance of stillness in meditation.  Every moment of your life can be just as whole if you allow it to be so.  Today find the treasure in the most mundane moments.  How did it go?

The goal of yoga is adaptability, not flexibility.

Living Your Yoga: Many students come to asana practice in order to become more flexible.  More important is learning to be adaptable and to let life flow through you.  How can you do this in your practice today?

Yoga is not about avoiding difficulty.

Living Your Yoga: When we try to avoid difficulty, we create difficulty.  Today choose something you find difficult and do it with love for five minutes.

Every asana is about opening.

Living Your Yoga: Today when you practice, find a new part of your body that is opening in each asana, even during a forward bend that seems to be about closing.

Why do we resist life?

Living Your Yoga: When you feel resistance arising, first notice it.  With a curious mind, allow yourself to acknowledge completely the aspect of your life that your resistance represents.
