I've been practising yoga for more than 10 years. Nevertheless, the understanding of yoga kicked in not until recently, about 4 years ago. Naturally it came out of observations I made during countless yoga classes. And this is what I found out and what I'm working on ever since...
Like with any healthy habit, I had to work out the mechanism so yoga would stick with me and contribute to my sustainable change. But before even starting my practice years ago I wasn't aware of these 5 things I am about to share with you right now.
I happened to have a friend who is permanently calm.
His car brakes down unexpectedly? No problem. Running late with deadlines at work? No problem. The world crumbles and falls apart? No problem: grab a bucket of popcorn, sit calmly and observe. For years, I thought that my friend was a brute who didn't care much about anything. It was far from the truth.
