Newsletter - September 2021
It is good that you look after the body that you have been given, but not so good to be attached to it.
We yogis can get so identified and there is a danger of thinking that you are the body.
“You do not have a spirit, you are spirit, you have a body”
Think of your body as a finely tuned tool, this tool can do nothing without the permission of the mind. The sanscript word Asana translated means “attitude”.
Do you notice a change in your attitude when practising an asana?
Halasana works for me, I find it restorative and tranquilising.
Clouds in the mind can disperse when your attention is wholeheartedly on the posture.
When the air is warm it can be wonderful to practice outside feeling your feet on the ground.
Keep your mind on the posture.
Your body is your mantra.
Let the birds and bees carry on with their play.
