Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about why I practice. It’s been so long that it’s hard to remember why I practiced at the beginning. I know I loved the poses. I loved the physical practice. And I still do.
The first sutra says asanas should be still and comfortable. Here are some other words for stillness: steady, stable, motionless. And here are some other words for comfort: sweet, enjoyable, relaxed, ease.
August was a good month. So much humble, devoted practice. And so many great things happening for people: acceptance to practice at the shala with Sharath in Mysore…
It’s been a great summer. Lots of solid practice happening at the shala. As the seasons shift, practice somehow always seems sweeter to me. See if that happens for you, too.
