It’s time to celebrate! Celebrate the fact that you made time for yoga practice today! With so many distractions, it’s more important than ever to carve out time for meditation and metta practice, too. Take this moment now to acknowledge and celebrate not only the work you’ve put in but the work of all the yogis before us.
None of us would be here today without our yoga teachers, mentors, and friends who helped us on this path toward spiritual awakening. And it’s our job as students to honor their memory. We must take care of the lineage of yoga that has been passed down to us.
Do you remember your first yoga teacher? What about your first yoga class? The specifics of these first practices aren’t as important as recognizing where your path started and with who. Because we are all on this path together. Teachers and students are two pieces of the whole, and the practice of teaching and the practice of learning is a cycle we all share.
These aren’t brand new spiritual teachings, and yoga is not something we can colonize. The foundational elements of this practice must be respected and cared for. I’m sharing ways all of us, as students of yoga, can honor the practice of yoga and meditation.
Of course, it starts with us continuing our practice, but there are many things we can do on and off the yoga mat to honor our lineage and humbly celebrate the practitioners who have come before. We are only on this earth for a short time, and we are better off spending that time cultivating kindness towards ourselves and others, including the ancient teachings of yoga.
Seize this moment now to celebrate the history of yoga - and its future! What we practice today needs to be protected for the upcoming generation of yogis. Send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and share the ways you are celebrating yoga. You could be invited to guest spot on The Yoga Inspiration Podcast.
