"Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they're meant to be."
Day 3 of the #BeyondAsanaYogaChallenge
is all about asana.
While asana is probably the most visible expression of yoga, particularly in the West. I like to remind students and clients that the yoga postures are but one of eight pieces of the practice. Getting great abs or a yoga booty aren't the point, neither is contorting into extreme shapes. Asana is a tool to help us stay healthy, body and mind, and to let us experience moments of a settled mind.
I picked this photo of my beloved friend and I supporting one another in a double, side tree. I love the delight and merriment in this moment. I also love that this picture also represents the way our friendship is based in mutual support.
